The Right Amount of Makeup for Your Face

Facial Moisturizer

The right size: Two peanuts

Application tip: Moisturizer has the big responsibility of making your skin smooth. To apply it, wash your face, and while your skin is moist (not wet), massage on a peanut-size amount of moisturizer with glycerin. Use a second peanut-size portion to hydrate your neck. "When skin is damp, moisturizer seeps into the surface better. And glycerin traps moisture in your cells," says Neil Sadick, M.D., a clinical professor of dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College.


The right size: A bottle cap

Application tip: To avoid that caked-on beauty-pageant look, pour a bottle-cap-size blob onto the back of your hand and use your finger to blend it across your forehead and nose. Dip your finger into the remaining foundation and run it over your cheeks and chin, smoothing over the edges of your jaw to blend the color into your neck. Heat from your fingers will warm the product, helping it glide across your skin better. "If you don't like using your finger, try a foundation brush instead," says celebrity makeup artist Fa biola.


The right size: For long hair, one Oreo; for short hair, one Hershey's Kiss

Application tip: It's as easy to overdo it with shampoo as it is w ith chocolate. Rein yourself in by pouring either an Oreo or a Hershey's Kiss amount (depending on the length of your hair) into your palm and applying the shampoo to your scalp. Rake it through your hair, stopping about halfway down your strands. "Most of the dirt and oil collects at your roots, so you don't need a lot of the product on your more fragile ends," Mancuso says.

Under-eye Concealer

The right size: A Tic Tac

Application tip: Just as a Tic Tac goes a long way toward masking bad breath, a Tic Tac-size dab of concealer is all you need to hide dark circles. Squirt a mint's worth of liquid concealer onto your finger. "Using a small brush, dab three little dots under your lower lash line—one in the middle, and one at the inner and outer corners," Fabiola says. Pat with your finger to blend the dots together. Smooth on another dot of concealer wherever blue peeks through. Dip an eye-shadow brush into loose translucent powder and use it to set the concealer. Repeat on the other eye.
