Editors Reveal Their Best Makeup Tips

From a cool new way to use Q-tips to the secret to super-lush lashes, get all the genius beauty tricks staffers have never shared before


Alex Apatoff, Style News Editor: I can never get blush to stay on my cheeks, so by noon I tend to resemble a vampire.

I tap my fingers against my lips to set the shade, then rub the excess lipstick over my cheekbones like cream blush.
