M.A.C. Teaches How to Get Fuller Lips Fast


This M.A.C. video tutorial showed up in my inbox this morning and I’m loving it.

It’s a quick, easy way to make it look like you have the fullest, most luscious lips in town — and you probably already have the products to do the job in your makeup drawer. Love it!

My favorite secret is the one about highlighting the cupid’s bow of your lip with a cream base. I would probably use a bit of undereye concealer there, which would be just a tiny bit lighter than your normal skin tone. Read more… Keep reading »

If stretch marks cause you to spend a little too much time coming up with swimsuit strategies to cover them up, we’ve got an idea: self-tanner. Keep reading »
