I don't know about you but I
definitely look better with make-up on.
I know that natural beauty is a thing to be proud of
and I admire when someone can glow
without a touch of make-up.
But most woman benefit from face primping.
A wave of the mascara wand, some sparkle to the lips and BAM!
We're a little bit prettier.
One of my favorite examples of this is
MaskCara's highlighting and contouring tip which was featured on
I mean, look at what a difference there is in this picture -
no changes in lighting and no Photoshop here! Wow!
Learn more about this technique here.
I love MaskCara's blog.. tons of great beauty tips!
And although I really like the softer make-up application she does here,
I also like the dark eyes and red lipstick look
like this one here by
make-up artist Vadim Andreev. What a transformation!
A darker brow and a red pucker can go a long way..
this look is so bombshell!
See other transformations by Vadim Andreev here.
But really, you don't need a
pound of make-up to take your face from blah to beautiful.
A natural beauty like Jessica Biel already looks amazing
in her plain face but she elevates that glow of hers
to another level with light rosy cheeks,
a touch of mascara and a shimmer to her lips.

It's really incredible how much a little bit of make-up
can do for us. I'm all for accepting and loving who we are
at our core,
but I'm also for making ourselves feel our very best
and working with what we've got.
I'm off to play with some eyeliner!
