    My best beauty secret would have to be eyeliner. It brings out the most tired of eyes making you look energetic and ready to take on the day. Add some cherry chapstick and you're ready to be out and about. Perfect for the woman on the go.

    My best beauty tip would be: Lipstick. I recommend if you do nothing else, wear lipstick, it opens up your face so much and I always instantly feel prettier.

    Top tip – environmentally friendly exfoliation: if you use ground coffee you can recycle the ground pulp after use by using it as a yummy, great smelling, cost effective and environmentally friendly exfoliation agent! Great for your skin and the earth! plus apparently it helps to keep water/drain pipes unclogged.

    Geraldine says:

    I've never really been a person for make up, but soon ill be starting work and need to look my best. So for me, make up that makes me look good is welcome. My simple tip is when putting lipstick on, pout on a tissue and re-apply the lipstick. It helps keep the lipstick on for longer. 😉

  21. Kerith
    Kerith says:

    Sometimes in Winter I get a few sad dry skin flakes on my forehead that only show up after I've applied foundation. Spray a little bit of hairspray onto your powder brush and fluff over them…gone! Magic. I definitely wouldn't recommend this as a solution, but we all need a little quick fix every now and then, and this one has proven to be a nifty little secret.


  22. Gillian
    Gillian says:

    The use of Vaseline as a cheap eye make-up remover, its also great for fixing chapped lips. Applying it and using an old toothbrush to massage lips will remove excess skin.

  23. Becky

    Invest in an iridescent white eye shadow or illuminator – then dot some in the inner corners of your eyes when you've done your eye makeup. Makes eyes 'pop' and makes you look youthful and radiant 🙂

    Simple tip but really effective, especially to hide tiredness: Apply a bronzer in a "W" shape over foundation , starting at the temples, going down towards centre of cheeks , up to bridge of nose and repeat on other side of the face. VOILA! Skin looks rested and you glow!

  27. Miss B
    Miss B says:

    Always have a "neutral" frosty/shimmery eye-shadow. It is one of the most versatile things to have in your makeup bag. You can use it as an eyeshadow (obviously), as a highlighter on your brow bone, the inner corners of your eyes, cheek bones and down the bridge of your nose. You can also blend it with your matte blush to go from day-to-night, or just to add some shimmer to your blush when the mood strikes. You can dab some on your cupids bow and/or in the centre of you lips to make them appear more pouty. If you have really thin lips, you can trace the outline of your lip with a cotton bud that has been lightly dipped into your neutral shimmery eye shadow. You can also mix a tiny bit of it into your foundation/tinted moisturizer to make your skin appear more radiant. So… ALWAYS HAVE A NEUTRAL COLOURED SHIMMERY EYE SHADOW. I find champagney/pearly/light golds to work best for many skin tones.

  28. Lee Geldenhuys
    Lee Geldenhuys says:

    My best tip is the simplest – sunscreen every day! My highlighter compact helps make my skin glow, even when I'm tired – it especially helps in dry winter months.

    I was told by my dermatologist not clean my face too often (which was morning and evening. Using products dried out my skin horribly). I only wash with luke warm water, and religiously use a toner every morning and evening (also as a make up remover). I have NOT had a pimple or problem since. I also use a thin layer of sunscreen for my face every morning. Moral? LESS IS MORE – Kelly Sweet (

    I'm a student and i am always late…i sleep late as a result i wake up late. i'm sure you'd agree that putting on make up when you late can turn into disaster.The mascara smudges all over your eye lids the liquid eyeliner drops everywhere,the lipstick smudges not to mention the eye shadow.Having a bad day already hey… well don't worry simply take a baby wipe and wrap it around an ear bud and wipe away the mess…

    – ALWAYS wash your make-up off before bed.
    – Tea tree oil for spots; as tempting as it is, DON't pick and squeeze!
    – Never sleep with wet hair, or tie up wet hair (split ends :/).
    – Less is always more; don't over-do anything, you more than likely will end up looking like a drag queen…
    – Moisturize you face, neck, lips and hands before bed, every night.
    – As already mentioned numerous times, SUNSCREEN, SUNSCREEN, SUNSCREEN!
    – Don't pick ingrown hairs, try surgical spirits!
    – Stop smoking! It decreases the elasticity of and collagen in the skin, AND increases wrinkles
    – Drink more water.
    – STOP stressing! Stress ages you… Plus there's nothing to worry about, we're all beautiful 😀

    Janis says:

    In winter my skin takes an enormous beating (plus I'm on Roaccutane) and over the past 3 years Coconut Oil has come to my rescue. It costs less than R20 at Clicks and I apply it in the eve after a bath or shower. My skin feels so soft and no hint of dryness around. It is also a fantastic hair mask. I generally apply this to wet hair focusing on the ends, leave it on for an hour then wash/condition and style as usual. My hair is soft, glossy and healthy

  54. Natalie Roos
    Natalie Roos says:

    My best beauty tip is to use a powder. People always ask me why their makeup doesn't sit well on their skin or last all day, and I always say they can fix the problem by applying a layer of loose or pressed powder over their foundation with a large blusher brush. It helps to set your foundation and create a great canvas for you to apply the rest of your makeup to. It also helps to combat that pesky "eyeshow crease" that tends to happen midway through the day.

  55. Unknown

    My best beauty tip would most properly be if you have to go into the sun always use sunscreen no matter what time of the year. Always drink enough water or fluids to stay hydrated and always remove make-up before bed otherwise the skin can't renew it self while you sleep

    A foundation BRUSH adds great texture to foundation making it look more natural. Saves you soooo much product, because it doesnt soak it up like sponges.

    I love the Woolies Natural body lotion with inca inchi and avocado oils. It is a GREAT hand moisturiser and it doesn't leave a nasty, greasy layer on your hands, so you can get back to work immediately without having to wait for it to "soak in". Plus it is kind to the environment because it is made from natural ingredients – beauty without cruelty!!

    As a make-up artist, I know a lot of tips and tricks to help you look your best.
    But the best tip ever is to get enough rest and water into your system.
    Make-up can only do so much, it is up to you to do the rest.
    Also adding sunscreen to your everyday regime is important, even if you are not going outside as the computer screen and lights also give off UV rays.
    I mean who wants dehydrated, tired, cracked, leathery and marked skin??

    For healthy, thick and shiny hair-use horse shampoo-you can get it from your local vet ( use about a capful mixed with yor normal shampoo so its not too strong) also for stronger hair and hair growth put about 6-8 drops of mint oil ( can get from clicks) into your conditioner – when you massage it into your head it gives this awesome tingling feeling and smells amazing:)
    1 MORE 🙂 completely random but I just bought " herbal ointment" from clicks- R14 bucks for a bigish tin-similar to zambuck but works sooo well-can work for anything ( spots, rash, burn) but since Winter takes it out on my lips-i have been using it and it does miracles for dry chapped lips!in a day my lips were smoother and it gives them a nice clar natural shine!

    These are my life and beauty tips. Use them/don’t use them. Whatevs..

    Don’t let your mother to comb your hair when she is angry with your father.
    Especially if you have wild curly hair.
    No time to bath? Wrap yourself in cello tape and simply peel it off. Or use wet wipes if you have the same hygiene standards as my college roommate.
    Don’t brush your teeth at the same basin as your sister. She will spit in your hair.
    Always spend a little more on nail polish. If you’re going to take the time to paint your nails, it may as well last longer than a day.
    Laugh every day. It’s the only exercise I get and I look fabulous!

    Coconut oil is super moisturizing and can be used as a deep cleanser for skin pores as it contains natural antibacterial ingredients to help clear up acne. It can be used used to ease fine lines and wrinkles and to soften dry skin. Coconut oil also acts as a natural sunscreen, protecting skin even further.

    For a fresh, dewy and natural face I wet my make up sponge first, squeeze out all excess water and then apply my foundation (I prefer liquid, but I think it works with any type except the foundation/powder combos). This helps the foundation go on thinly, smoothly and flawlessly. It also gives your skin a radiant healthy appearance whereas using a dry sponge sometimes can make the founcadtion look thick, dry and sometimes even cakey. This is great for when you only need light to medium coverage (for daytime for instance) and it will also stretch that foundation to help it last a lot longer! Try it! 🙂

    Best beauty secret would be to scrub twice a week. we always have dead skin cells on our face and if we don't get rid of it the moisture can't penetrate deeper into the skin. There is no point in moisturising if your dead skin cells are blocking your pores. – SCRUB!! 🙂

    Beauty tips i have accumulated over my life: Never ever go to sleep with makeup on. It is not worth it. Baby powder works well for emergency hair de-greasing, but it is really bad for your scalp and hair so don't do it often. Buy the best shampoo and conditioner you can afford – your hair WILL thank you. If forced to pick, buy a better conditioner than shampoo, as it seals in the moisture and closes your hair's cuticles. Never use 2-in-1 conditioner/shampoo – shampoo opens the pores in your hair, and conditioner closes them – poor, confused hair! If you want a bit more "pop" to the colour of your eyeshadow, try wetting your finger with water before applying the colour. This also helps to "hold" the colour for longer (note – only use with trusted makeup brands. Cheaper brands will just flake and crease). White or silver eyeliner in the inner corners of your eyes makes you appear more fresh-faced and cat-eyed – sexy! Use your toothbrush to gently exfoliate your lips with brown treacle sugar if they are cracked and dry. Don't ever use vaseline as a lip balm – it doesn't actually help. The best lip-saver i have ever used is Bepanthen Nappy Rash cream – lifesaver!

    My secret to having a glowing complexion, is to maintain a healthy diet and drink plenty of water. This can be done by ensuring you are eating enough zinc, vitamin C, and flaxseed oil (in food form, instead of in supplements, to get the most benefits). All these combined, work together to help heal your skin and reduce inflammation (like red spots from acne). We underestimate how much a healthy diet can affect our skin.

    A really really good eye cream! I bought my first Woolies' skin/beauty product in April, the Anti-Ageing Line Repair Eye Cream. It is the best out of over 6 different brands of eye creams I've tried to diminish dark circles and eye bags. My skin feel nourished, tighter and my appearance became fresher and younger looking, which is the perfect canvas for any make up. I am now also a big fan of Woolworths skin care/bauty products.

    I can't remember where I picked this up, but being a student means – lack of sleep. A facial tip to fight the sag effect includes: placing moisturizer on the saggy/wrinkled areas at least 5min before applying the make-up. The make-up goes on more evenly and gives off a smooth look. Dry/patchy areas are also far less visible.

    Every girl HATES how eyeliner either smudges leaving us with panda eyes, or just doesn't last?!

    The secret TIP is called POPPING!

    After applying your layer of eyeliner in the waterline, take a clean make-up brush (an angle brush will work best) and the same color eyeshadow as your eyeliner & POP the shadow on top. This intensifies your eyeliner in pay-off (colour) and lasts throughout the whole day!

    If you find it a little more challenging to remove after hours, use an oil based make-up remover or non-harmful product to the eye.

    HAPPY POPPING Ladies 🙂

    For winter, forget the expensive lip moisturizers as most end up drying your lips anyway… Buy a small tub of Vaseline and use that instead. It's cheap and lasts much longer! Also, Vaseline is amazing for dry cuticles (fingers and toes!) and is a super add on when moisturizing your feet and hands before bed. Just mix a little in with your beauty cream and you'll have amazingly smooth hands and feet…. Vaseline keeps you crack free!

    Always always wear sunscreen!Also always wear a base coat on your nails before painting them with colour, they will never discolour. And mix together some honey and cinnamon and apply to your face everyday for about 15 mins (or as long as you can handle it before it starts dripping), your acne problem will disappear and the inflammation will go down, your face will look brighter and feel smoother, just dont lick it off before it gotten a chance to work.

    for Pigmentation, use woolies green corrector sparingly, put on a medium base, sheer on areas without pigmentation and build a little bit more on pigmented skin. Take a brush and cover pigmented areas lightly with translucent powder. on an older skin it will stop you from looking to matte and too made up but will still hide the pigmentation.

    My three tips are:

    One-apply coconut oil as a facial mask once a week, leaving it for an hour on your face to keep outbreaks undercontrol as well as to keep your skin looking smooth and hydrated throughout the week. Interesting eating a spoon of cooconut oil every morning, which can be enjoyed in a boal of oats too will also help keep you nice and trim. Essential for winters.

    Two-exfoliating the lips, and applying shea butter to your lips every night before going to bed will ensure that yours lips look impeccable after applying a lipstick or gloss each time before you leave for a day outing.

    Three-concealer under the eyes helps brighten up your look, especially if you have sunken or dark-rimmed eyes.

    These work wonderfully!

    4 : Eyeshadow : To keep your eyeshadow lasting throughout the day, apply a little bit of base concealer on your eyelids before you apply eyeshadow – This will Keep your eyes looking fabulous all day!

    5 : Concealer : Tap – dont rub – apply several dots of concealer under the eyes, then use the pad of your middle finger to tap it in (always tap, never rub).

    6 : For fuller looking lips – Go dark : Rich red shades make lips look fuller than neutral ones

    7 : Face preparation : Cleanse, tone and moisturize daily – morning and night 🙂

    8 : Drink 1litre of water per 30kg you weigh each and every day 🙂

    Two tips:
    1) If you have sensitive eyes like I do and can't handle conventional eyeliners, go for a kohl eyeliner (super cheap particularly at flea markets). They go on very dark and easily and so don't tug on the eye. They are also mild enough to use to line your inner lids to achieve the perfect Egyptian/smoky eye look.
    2) If you get unruly tangles which are really hard to brush out and tend to lead to hair damage, get yourself a comb for in the shower/bath and comb your hair while conditioning. It really helps! Even after roughly towel drying I hardly get tangles anymore and my hair requires minimal brushing after my morning showers (anything to save time so I can spend more time in bed)!
