Peanut butter and jelly, lip gloss and balm: Best cosmetic combos
Like Jay-Z and Beyonce or peanut butter and jelly, there are certain things that just go together. The same is true with cosmetics. According to Elle Magazine, certain makeup products simply work better when used together. Try these makeup ideas to make the most of your products.
For the best lip color, mix a pink lip gloss with a clear, not super-glossy balm. The magazine reports the balm will moisturize the lips while cutting down on the gloss's shine, making your lips shiny and pretty, not sticky.
To cover up those undereye circles, use the winning duo of foundation and concealer, Elle reports. To work like the pros, mix a dab of each product on the back of your hand before patting the mixture over the dark spots.
Another clever combination is mascara and eyeliner. Mixing your waterproof mascara with liquid eyeliner before applying makes it smudge-proof and tear-proof. Apply this under your favorite eyeshadow palette and you will be ready for anything.
Of course, there are other combinations that are simply classic. BellaSugar.com reports that brunettes will always glow in bronzer and berry-hued lipstick. Girls with black hair can't go wrong with black eyeliner, while blondes and red-heads look stunning in shades of pink and red on their eyes and lips.
