We compiled our best-ever beauty tips from SheSaid readers’ must-haves to our editor’s favourite hair, skin and makeup secrets!
My favourite blush…is actually a lipstick! I use Bobbi Brown’s Lip Color in Rose on my lips for a polished, pinky-nude shade, and smudge a little on the apples of my cheeks for the most perfect glow-from-within blush. Saves space in my handbag too! SheSaid Editor Julia
Egg white facial
Egg whites on the face make an instant face lift. A great idea for leftover egg whites, just whisk 1 egg white and brush over the face in an upwards motion. Let dry for 10 minutes, then rinse off with a face cloth and warm water. Lisa, South Coogee
Whatever you do, resist the urge to pick and squeeze pimples. It causes skin blemishes and capillaries to break. Desiree, North Epping
Bronzer is your friend
Rimmel bronzer is amazing, otherwise I would look like I’ve been indoors all my life! Natalie, Mount Cotton
DIY body scrub

What stretch marks?
Palmer’s Cocoa body moisturiser was my savour thoughout my pregnancy, i used it twice a day and didn’t get any strecth marks! Samantha, Carins
Blackheads, be gone!
To loosen stubborn blackheads, steam face over a bowl of boiling water, gently exfoliate with gloves then splash with cold to constrict the pores. Yenta, Darlington
Applying moisturiser and primer
I picked up this tip from UK makeup artist Lisa Eldridge: apply moisturiser and primer in one movement all over the face, instead of rubbing it in. This creates a matrix over the skin which allows your foundation to sit smoothly, creating an airbrushed look. SheSaid Editor Julia
After waxing use emu oil over that sensitive spot. It takes the stickyness away and is soothing! Katrina, Glengowrie
