Beauty Questions

Q: I've tried to wear false lashes, but they always seem to look goofy and long?
A: The best trick for false lash success is to give them a haircut first. NYC lash professional Luba Todorca suggests cutting each strip in half or thirds with cuticle scissors. You can trim the length following the angle of the strip. Place a piece on the outer edge of your lashes for a flirty look or right over your pupil to draw major attention. Use clear glue and some found it's easiest to put it directly on their lash line with a whittled-down cotton swab. Grab the lash strip with tweezers, and stick it onto the glue. Hold it down for about 30 seconds and help it adhere.

Q: Any makeup tips to help camoflauge the " 11 " forehead wrinkles to make them less noticeable? 
A: Here are some tips from makeup artist Bobbi Brown: First double-moisturize-- Dry skin emphasizes lines. Brown suggests applying a serum or lightweight moisturizer, waiting five minutes that layering a thicker product on top. Try a light-coverage foundation or tinted moisturizer on your forehead, even if you use a heavier one on the rest of your face. Or you can deflect attention by playing up a feature you love. Red lips??

Q: What's the best shade of lipstick and blush for redheads?
A: Almost any shade. Forget the rule that redheads should stick with tones that don't clash with their coloring. Makeup artists George Eisdell, who has worked with Christina Hendricks, offsets fiery hair with a matte bright red lip, like MAC lipstick in Ruby Woo ($15, macccosmetics.com), or a soft creamy pink gloss. On cheeks, Eisdell likes pink beige or terra-cotta tones instead of louder hues.
