If you wake up with swollen eyelids, avoid pale eye shadow, which will only highlight them. Instead, stroke on eye color that’s at least one shade darker than your normal skin.

Quick makeup replacement rules:
Blond highlights? Selectively shampoo your hair, recommends stylist Guy Riggio at the Sally Hershberger salon. Apply shampoo only on the roots, not on the shaft, to avoid drying out already fragile hair.
To keep ends from fraying and breaking during a blow-dry, use a medium-heat setting. Styling will take longer this way, but it will leave your hair shinier and healthier.
To make a round face look oval, avoid haircuts that are shorter than shoulder length. Side parts tend to widen the face, so opt for a middle-part. A few layers in front will elongate the face.
Dip your toe into the menswear trend and wear a classic men’s watch instead of a wrist full of bangles. Wear it loose for a bracelet-like effect that’s sporty but elegant enough for any occasion.
Step back from the mirror for some perspective when you're applying your makeup. That lets you see how eyes, lips and cheeks are working together.
