Health and Beauty Tip -- When to Brush Wet Hair

Don't start brushing your hair right when you get out of the shower. Get out the majority of the tangles with your fingers first. When your hair is about 80% dry, that's the best time to start. Don't start brushing until your fingers go through your hair easily without hitting tangles.

Health and Beauty Tip -- What Should You Test?

When picking up new makeup, you can generally get away with buying mascara, eyeliner, lip gloss, and most eyeshadows without testing them. Lipstick, powder, foundation, and blush all need to be checked before buying. You're not likely to be able to guess without testing.

Health and Beauty Tip -- Eyeliner on the Inside?

Should you line the inside rims of your eyes? That depends on whom you listen to. Many beauty experts claim that it's "in" now, but others say it makes your eyes look smaller. It might be better to listen to opthamologists, though -- who warn that lining your eyes this way carries a greater risk of infection.
