Health and Beauty Tip -- Nail Polish That Lasts

The type of nail polish you use, as well as how you apply it, can determine how long it will last.

Health and Beauty Tip -- When to Apply Blush

As a rule, you should apply blush before powder, but find what works best for you. Some makeup artists like to use blush before foundation for a more natural-looking glow. Always use a full brush, rather than the small one that comes in your compact.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Using an Eyelash Curler

Never curl your eyelashes while wearing mascara! Make sure your lashes are clean before you start. Heat the curler with a blow dryer for five seconds. After checking to make sure it's not too hot, clamp it at the very base of the roots and hold for 10-30 seconds. Repeat on the other side -- you don't need to curl your bottom lashes.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Safe Manicures and Pedicures

If you go to get your nails done, keep a few things in mind. Firstly, bring your own tools with you, and beware of sharp tools at the salon.
