Cheap but chic beauty tricks

Rework your basics

You don't need a ton of new products to look your absolute hottest. In fact, some of your best beauty tricks may be in your makeup drawer right now, just waiting to be used in a new way.

Rework your basicsInstantly Alluring Eyes

Maximize your blush.

Take a creamy rose blush, and apply it in a half-moon shape under your brow bone and over the tops of your cheekbones. "You'll get a subtle sheen that draws attention to your eyes and makes your face glow," explains Paish.

Tap lip gloss under your brows.

Sounds crazy, but patting on a soft, shimmery pink gloss helps highlight and lift your eyes, says Paish. Use a non sticky formula (so your lashes don't get stuck!), and blend in.

Wear contrasting eye-shadow colors.

It's a hot trend for fall, but just work with what you already have. Apply a bright, intense hue (like purple)on your upper lids, then drag a softer hue (pearly green) along your lower lash line, recommends Paish.

Put bronzer on your lashes.

Comb loose bronze powder through lashes instead of mascara. "You'll get a subtle sparkle that's so sexy for night since it catches the light," says Miller. One swipe should do it—you don't want any excess flakes to fall under your eyes.
