Nail that winged eyeliner look!
It’s every makeup lover’s goal, right? Achieving that perfect cat eye flick. Usually, it’s a heck of a daunting task to get right, but not if you have some masking tape on hand. Maybe that sounds a little weird, but putting a piece of tape at the corner of your eye is just the guideline that will see you through, and avoid messy lines.

Instead of using soap to wash your face, try an olive oil, honey and baking soda face mask twice per week. The olive oil and honey moisturizes and soothes dry, irritated skin, while the baking soda makes a paste that you can rub on your face!
