Occasionally, a pimple or other skin blemish can affect our appearance. An effective home remedy for treating a pimple is to place a small dab of toothpaste on it.

Make your skin look more vibrant by using a moisturizer with a warm gold or pink undertone. Apply the highlighter with a makeup sponge, dabbing it on your brows and fleshy part of your cheeks for a dewy look. Applied moderately, this undertone will blend in and look natural.

An eyelash curler can help improve the quality of your lashes. Curling your eyelashes can increase their perceived length and can add vitality to your eyes, meaning you’ll be perceived as younger and ready to face the day.

This will curve, instead of angle, your eyelashes.
