At 24 years old, you'd think I would have this whole beauty and makeup thing figured out but I am still finding out new tips and tricks that I seriously wish I had known back in high school or college!
Being the nice beauty blogger that I am, I thought I'd share a few of the tips I've learned over the past few years with all of you lovely people! Let me know if you have tips to add to this list, I always love hearing new tricks of the trade!

~ Foundation is returnable. As is most makeup. Say what!? You mean all of those bottles of foundation I bought and never used because they were the wrong color could have been returned!? Save those receipts ladies, until you know for sure that the shade is right for you.
~ Got mascara somewhere you don't want it? Wait until it dries, then wipe off with a q-tip or tissue. Boom. Gone. Yeah, wish I learned that a few years ago....
~ Filling in your eyebrows makes ALL of the difference. I never filled my brows until about a year ago and now I always do, even if that's all I do. It frames your face and opens up those gorgeous eyes! I use eyeshadow as my brow tint, but pencil and other products work good to!
~ Expensive isn't always better. Ever hear of e.l.f.? Because they are worth the $2-$6 dollars you'll spend on a product. I tend to wait until they have a free shipping special online and grab everything I'm out of (plus some) and score free shipping on top. Their eyeshadows and bronzer are some of my favorites! The lip exfoliate is a holy grail item and their new skin care line? Can't wait to try it!
~ Even if that eyeshadow palette is a little pricey, buy it. You get way more use out of it than a single shadow, more bang for your buck! And plus, traveling with makeup just became easier.
~ This one I've known for a while, but I was always to chicken to just ask. When you're shopping at a department store or specialty store like Ulta or Sephora, ask for trial sizes! They might not always have them- or always give them- but if you show interest in a product but don't want to commit, just ask! Never hurt to ask, right?
And there we have a few of the tricks I've learned in the last few years that would have been oh-so-helpful back in the day.
Got any more tips or tricks of the beauty world? I'd love to hear them!
