    My fav beauty tip of the moment is to use Vaseline to remove eye makeup! It removes my waterproof mascara like a treat! It's great if you have ran out of your fav eye makeup remover.

    My email is ! xx

  3. Hurrah! 100 followers! :D
    My ultimate beauty tip would be when you're wearing fake nails and you're looking to take them off safely, get a disposable shotglas and pop a drop of water and nailvarnish remover (acetone free! and with vitamin e, you want to have lovely healthy nails!) and soak each nail in for a good minute or so, then gently peel them off. Your nails will be left practically undamaged compared to if we were to do our usual and scrape them off (come on, admit it, everyone's done that at LEAST once!)

    My email is :D


  4. Well done on 100 followers :)

    My beauty tip is simple but something most of us always forget... take make up off before going to bed, use a wipe/cream and then wash with warm water. I also use a face mask at least once a week, peel off ones are amazing for leaving the skin soft :)


  5. congrats on 100 followers !!

    My beauty tip is to always remove your makeup at night by using a good clenser,I never used to do this was just too lazy but then it ends up getting all over your bed clothes horrible :o and causing nasty breakouts.. and moisturize every morning and before going to bed at night :) X

  13. My favorite beauty tip is to drink lots of water. It is very important to hydrate your skin because if you don't no amount of makeup will make it look as good as it would, if it was hydrated (less acne + skin looks healthier). Water is really healthy for us so we should drink it as much as we can.


    Good luck everyone. xoxo

  20. my tip is there is no need to go out buying an expensive eyeliner to make it last all day and all night a simple cheap eyeliner will do simply get a lighter hold the tip to the flame for like 3 seconds and it will work like a cream liner then set with a shadow of the same colour

  21. im following from glitterskulls on gfc.

    makeup tip: always use a primer esp on the eyes. it really catches the color and gives shadows real staying power!!

  22. <3 your blog! I'm following via GFC :)

    My tip for creating the perfect cat eye or winged liner look is to first do your wings using eye shadow. When you get the shape you want, go over the shadow with your liquid or get liner. The eyshadow is easier to remove if you make a boo boo! :)

  23. My beauty tip is to infuse your face with moisture before applying foundation. You want to make sure your skin is as hydrated as possible!

    Ps I follow you on GFC as mereditheng

    I will tweet your contest

  24. :]

    My favorite beauty tip is: start with a fresh clean moisturized face. I used to just wear makeup and not wash my face and just reapply the next day. Makes me sick thinking of it now. It is really important to me to wash my face, moisturize and prime now. I Always have to do it now

  25. I would love to win this!
    My beauty tip is to always wash your face twice at night - once to remove makeup and the second time to actually clean your skin!

    My favorite beauty tip is using a business card or credit/debit card to make the perfect winged liner.



    My fave beauty tip is when my lip gloss looks like it's running out i stick it in a cup of warm water for 5 mins and you will then see the lip gloss still has ALOT in the tube :) x

  29. I always use primer for face, eyes and lips. Not only does it make colours pop but it makes them last all day without any reactions. I couldn't wear any brand of lipstick until I discovered primers!
    Great blog Katie Lou, I'm glad I found it through the ELF fb page. I love reading make up reviews - thanks :D

  30. My beauty tip is ALWAYS curl your lashes! Makes a big difference!

  31. I follow you on GFC as Velvet, though I'm commenting more because my tip made such a big difference to my skin!

    I had oversensitive (for which, read that I'd get allergic blepharitis as a reaction to various skincare products!), dry, flaky, acne-prone skin until last year. While it's still dry and a little sensitive, it got SO much better when I switched to using mostly natural skincare and makeup. I don't have to be purist about it, so long as I don't use too many synthetics at once. So now I use a natural cleanser and moisturiser, mineral makeup...and then can go to town on eyeshadows and a few other crazy colours.

    I'll never have perfect skin (I'm in my 30s, for a start!) but it's the best it's ever been. :-)

  32. Oh, and my email is gillyjoseph at - hope it's OK that I've changed the @ to an "at", but I'm desperate to avoid getting even more spam than I already do, and bots perform email fishing on forms and blogs like this one. :-)

  33. Thanks for the giveaway!
    I guess my favourite beauty tip is to put vaseline on your eyelashes at makes them so soft and keeps them healthy and strong :)

  34. Yay =) This is so nice!

    My favourite beauty trick is to use fridge-cold cotton pads on your eyes to reduce eye fatigue.

    thanks =)

  35. Congrats on reaching 100 followers!! I'm new to blogging as well and can definitely understand how exciting that would be. (I'm aiming for 10, at the moment. Haha.)

    My favorite beauty trick is pretty simple... layer a waterproof mascara over your favorite, regular non-waterproof mascara. The regular mascara will give you the definition, volume, and length that you love, and the waterproof will give you the all-day, smudge-proof look that you need. :)

  36. Hi Katie,

    Congratulations on nearly 200 followers and thanks for some fab prizes.

    I'm following on GFC as Karen

    My fave tip:

    to do a french manicure (white tip) use a ring binder sticker. I'm not very good doing it freehand on my right hand so I find the ring binder helps me apply it easily without it looking messy or you can use one for a half moon manicure, which is a bit trendy at the minute.

    Your from southampton, me too!

    My favourite tip is making your eyelid primer,
    foundation, concealer and body butter all mixed together :) xx


    My favourite makeup tip is to use white tissue paper as blotting paper; it works! :D ♥

  39. enter me :)

    my fave make-up tip is to apply power to your eye lids to stop creasing

  40. my face make up tip is to lightly brush your lips with a soft dry toothbrush to remove any dead skin. then apply a lovely lipbalm or lipstick for the perfect pout :x

    gfc: choux pastry hearts


  41. I actually have 2 favourite tips:
    1 - If you're eyelashes won't hold a curl use a waterproof mascara after using your eyelash curlers. I have the straightest lashes ever so if it works on me it will work on anyone! I tend to go for Max Factor or Maybelline.

    2 - Double cleanse at night with a GENTLE cleanser rather than once with something harsh if you suffer from oily, spot-prone skin. This tip seriously saved my skin. I like Alpha H Balancing cleanser.

    Thanks for a great competition :D

  42. My beauty tip is to apply booster on my eyelids after primer and also after eyeshadow. It really works on my oily lids and prevent crease :)

    congratulations on over 100 followers :)

    my mail is:

  43. Congrats on the 100 followers :)
    My beauty tip is too always keep cotton buds at hand when applying eyeliner & mascara! That way if you're a bit of a clutz like me when applying, you can easily get into all the small areas to clean it up :) Also when you put foundation on, if you apply it to kinda go over your lips, using a cotton bud afterwards to get rid of at and to also shape your lips! I'm not sure if that makes sense, sorry :P

    Thanks for the competition!

  44. Well Done on your 100 followers love your Blog !
    My beauty tip bit boring but effective always make sure you wash/cleanse your face of make-up at night no matter how drunk/tired/cba you are,and drink plenty of water keeps your skin hydrated and looking good.

  46. My beauty tip is, throw your mascara away after three months :)


  47. Hi!
    My favorite beauty tricks are:
    1.When my makeup does not look as fresh as the first application, I give it a little shine in this way: I apply a moisturizer with a light texture over makeup. This will give me instant freshness of the early hours. So I'll keep my look fresh throughout the day! Great trick, right?
    2.To refresh my manicure, I apply a coat of colorless nail polish over the nails. In this way, I revive my manicure a little, without the need to restore it completely.
    I hope you like this little tricks, so easy!

    Thanks for chance!:)
