The Best Makeup & Beauty Tips Received on IMBB

By Aruna


I can start off with a few –

  • Remove eye makeup by spraying some rose water on a cotton swab and mixing it with olive oil – loved this tip cos I don’t have to rub my eyes too hard to remove make up.
  • Dampen the eyeshadow brush and dip into eyeshadow and blend for a smooth finish – absolutely amazing tip. Love it.
  • Contouring
  • Use lacto calamine for oily/normal skin – one of the best suggestions EVER
  • Use a darker powder instead of a bronzer for highlighting
  • Use Maybelline gel eyeliner for a smudge proof look – stays on for 8 hrs easily..
  • Dampen black eyeshadow for an eyeliner effect – smudge lightly for a smokey effect. – awesome tip..

  1. Dampen black shadow……………. wow i ll do it today itself for my frnds wedding reception in evening………. :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    1. hey coool..lemme know if it worked for u as well as it did for me..u know i am sure there are so many more..cant seem to remember as of now..what abt u guys?

    1. my pleasure Rati..i have benefitted immensely..just wondering what were the best takeaways for the others from IMBB

  2. Just today I was going to buy a compact..but after reading so much about LActo Calamine ,I am lef t wondering if I should buy the same instead…..even I have oily skin…so whats the differenc betn.. the two??Does a compact give more coverage compared to LC??? ?:) ?:)

    1. sonam you can use compact for doing touch ups during the day and to set your makeup. Lactocalmine is more like a tinted moisturiser I gues..

      1. Ya Lacto CAalmine is a Tinted Moisturiser…OK I am asking whether one must use LC + compact and then touch ups with compact OR normal moisturiser + compact(no LC reqd.)..Then in the second case would one get less coverage compared to the 1st one???….or will there eb any difference betn. the looks achieved??

        I hope I’ve not confused you… 😀

  5. These actually are great tip Aruna :yes:
    You are in love with lacto calamine no??? you mentioned it in your last post also… :toothygrin:
    I have to get maybelline gel liner now…..ebbbberrryybody is raving about it… :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance: :happydance:

    1. hhahaha..ya i am swearing by it these days..i keep saying it a million times tooo…..the maybelline gel liner is wonderful though i did try and get the colorbar eye pencil off their website. I waited for it for a while well almost 2 weeks only to receive an email saying they were out of stock and wud be refunding my money.. 😛 😛 😛

  6. I just gt maybeeline gel liner… :yahoo: :yahoo: yet to try it :yahoo: :yahoo: am so happy atlast gt moi hands on it :toothygrin:

  7. I also liked one of the tips from IMBB that just doting concealer on problem areas and then setting it with powder ( I think Rati did it in one of her tutorials)……I do this when I dont want to put a whole lot on my face…..

    I also love highlighting my cheeks…..under my browbone….I never used to do that before…..

    Blush… I dont know if i can leave that out of my routine……its like staple…I never used to do all this before joining IMBB….

    Thank you all……and the best is using darker eyshadows with wet angled brush for eyelining…..opens up so many possibilities!

    1. ya the last tip you mentioned is damn neat really..i did read the ‘dotting concealer on problem areas only’ tip which is a pretty cool tip too..I have ordered something called the peace glow perfect from oriflame and am awaiting to receive it. it claims that you can use it with a foundation or just as is if you want dont want to apply too much. am curious abt it and looking fwd to using it in the summer esp when u dont want too much on your face.
