In Elegant Tips, we will be sharing with you tips that we have collected from all around the world.

Starting today with using your lipstick as blush!  Let’s admit it, we have all encountered that moment when we feel the need to add a pop of colour to our face (especially when we are on an evening out and are not carrying our full makeup kit). Next time, you look into the mirror and feel this need, give this little trick a try. Use your lipstick as your blush – a lady always has a lipstick in her bag!  So here goes:

1. Before anything, make sure your lipstick shade is ‘ok’ to use on cheeks, ie pink, coral or peach hues are good ones to use

2. Rub lipstick on finger (we find the index finger to be easiest) and pat on cheek bone

3. Work your way tapping on cheek and taking colour as you need

A quick trick that works! Keep a light hand and remember to blend!

DIY Brow Control



Got nicely shaped brows but still find the odd few stubborn hair stray, slides, budge out of shape? It’s ok, it happens with us too and yes it’s annoying. To fix it and make sure your brows stay in perfect shape till the time you hit bed at night, we’ve come down to the top 5 DIY brow control!

1. Clear mascara

The comb makes it easy to brush the brow back in shape whilst applying the clear mascara –  the best method out of all to keep the brow in place all day .

2. Vaseline (petroleum jelly)

Applied with a cotton bud/ tip of finger over the brow then comb with a disposable mascara brush or even a normal hair comb.

3. Castor oil

Dab a little castor oil on brows and avoid using too much – or else you will walk out with shiny gunky eyebrows – yikes! Not the attention your brows want!

4. Hair gel

Hair gel can keep those stubborn hairs in control – look out for the white stuff when gel dries. To avoid this use good quality gel.

5. Moustache wax

Not sure if he uses it, but no harm in searching through his toiletry kit, right? It’s an old Hollywood beauty tip that keeps the brow hair in place for most of the day. Try the clear one and don’t go overboard in applying it as it can feel sticky and can give stiff looking brows. So only use a little – don’t go overboard.

In short, any good gel based products in your kit should do the trick, hair spray just don’t seem to work with brow control.
