Need fresh make up tips and tricks for your next date night? Getting tired of the same old everyday make up routine? Learn better ways to apply and accentuate your make up to make you even more alluring with these top 10 make up ideas. 
    Take care of your skin
    A great secret to glowing skin is exfoliation. You can do these treatments at home using just sugar and olive oil. Mix them together and apply to your face. Scrub gently for a few minutes, then rinse with warm water. You can repeat this twice a week for super smooth skin.
    For oily skin, you can make your own lemon wash. Take 2 to 3 lemons and 2 to 3 tablespoons of honey and combine them with hot water. Rinse away the oil to reveal your fresh, clean complexion.
    Perfect your skin tone
    An even skin tone is the key to a flawless face. The point is to appear as if you aren’t even wearing makeup. Choose a foundation that matches your skin tone and blend it in with a sponge or your ring finger. Nothing is worse than a caked-up face of make up, so only use it on the areas where it is needed most. Cover up under-eye circles, blemishes, and red spots by patting on a creamy concealer. The last step is to set your face with a powder to avoid a dewy look.  
    Choose eyes or lips
    Highlighting both the eyes and mouth is a big mistake. Choose your favorite feature and downplay the other.
    If you choose your lips, go bright with a red or dark pink. Use a lip liner that matches your lipstick and apply to the outside edge of your natural lip line.
    If you choose your eyes, the smokey eyes effect is always stunning. Line both the top and bottom rims of your eyes with an eye pencil. Then apply a dark shadow and smudge over the penciled area. Next apply a lighter shadow to the entire eye area. Soften as you go outward for a perfect blend. 
    Open your eyes
    Dab a bit of white eye shadow in the inside corners of your eyes, then line your eyes with a creamy white eye pencil. This will give you larger, more seductive looking eyes.
    Also, try tracing your upper lid and lower lid with a black liner, then apply mascara and curl your eyelashes to really make your eyes pop.
    Be smarter than your mascara
    Waterproof mascara is wonderful, but proves to be a pain to remove. Outsmart your mascara by applying a coat of regular mascara first, then topping it with waterproof mascara. It will come off more easily and allow you get that lash length that you love.
    Blush well
    After foundation, apply blush before any other make up. Sometimes it may be all you need for a gorgeous, natural look. Apply the blush to the fleshy "apple" part of your cheeks.
    If you want to add color to your face, choose a peach or pink shade. If you want to highlight your cheekbones, choose a brown shade. To create a sun kissed look try a bronzer and also brush it along your nose, chin, and hairline.
    Plump it up
    Full lips are the envy of most women. Lighter colored lipsticks can work wonders to make lips look fuller. Also, dab the middle of your lower lip with lip gloss to create this illusion. A whitish shimmer powder can create this same effect.
    Another trick is to mix Vaseline with either cinnamon or peppermint extract. Apply this combo as a lip balm. It temporarily increases the circulation of blood to your lips which gives them an extra pout.
    Don’t forget your nails
    Even if you’re not into manicures and pedicures, it is still important to pay attention to your nails. Keep them clean and file them to make sure they stay the same length. Use a thick lotion and massage it into your cuticles for a fresh, smooth look. A cute polish color goes a long way. Try a bold red or go with a chic black, but remember to add a top coat for a shiny finish.
