Beauty Tip #15

1. Instead of shading hollows of your face, switch to highlighting. Using paler hues, accentuate under the brows for a mini lift, and dust a lighter blush along the cheekbone to plump cheeks.

2. Water, paper, chemicals: all enemies of soft hands. "You have to fight back every day," says Jan Arnold, founder of Creative Nail Design. "First, exfoliate to slough off the dead cells. Then, while skin is moist, slather on a cream rich enough to compensate for how few oil glands your hands have. Treat your hands to a paraffin-wax dip next time you're getting a salon manicure," adds Arnold.

Here's a secret for super-smooth, quenched lips: Use your richest eye cream on your lips! Note: Be sure it's a "hydrating" formula, not "firming" — which is code for drying.

When you're strapped for time, do the T-zone blow-dry: down your part and around your hairline only. "As long as the front and top of your hair looks finished," says makeup artist Eva Scrivo, "so will you."

5. Full brows have been spotted on all the runways and are the hottest trend right now. So, stop plucking! Keep unruly brows looking polished with a slick of clear brow gel. Dab highlighter directly under the brow bone — you will achieve an instant eye-lift effect!

6.  To copy the bevy of celebs sporting smoldering eyes on the red carpet, stay away from blue hues, which can make you look like you have under-eye circles. Instead, go for black, gray, brown, or — if you want "color" — dark green shadows and liners.

7. Low on cash but still want to indulge? Pamper your feet. If you're going to indulge in any spa treatment, go for a pedicure. It costs more than a manicure (though much less than a body treatment), and it lasts for weeks.

8. The space between your eyebrows should be equal to the width of your eyes, and start where they line up with your nostrils.

9.Play up your pout — it reminds people you're no pushover — with a deep, dramatic lipstick. Use your finger for a personally stamped finish. Want a fuller effect? Highlight the area above your bow with a brush of gold eyeshadow.
