When it comes to beauty, everyone wants to know how to save time, money, and energy whenever possible. I’ve worked to round up some of the greatest beauty hacks that I know to be here in one convenient place for you.
- Create a perfect and even eyeliner
Winged eyeliner. We all know that it looks amazing, but it’s so hard to make look good. You usually end up with one eye that looks perfect, and the other eye looks like you asked a kindergarten to try it out. Try placing a small dot where you want the eyeliner to end on each eye before you apply it to the whole eye. This gives you a chance to make sure each eye is even before you start the process.To get the perfect cat-eye flicks, place some Scotch tape from your bottom lashes to your temple. Draw your liner as normal and when you get to the flicks draw along the edge of the tape, tapering the width. Finally peel back the tape and voila!
2. Apply baby powder to your lashes
To accentuate long lashes, use a cotton bud and apply baby powder to your top and bottom set of eyelashes. Once this is done, recoat the eyes with mascara for fuller looking lashes.
3. Multi masking
We all been in position when we know are skin needs mask, but we are not sure which one to choose. The best answer for that is multi masking. So you can put a moisturizing mask on the arias where your skin is feeling a little bit dry, you can use a clarify clay mask where you feel like you’ve got a brake outs, you can even use specific eye masks underneath your eyes, so your skin is getting the benefits of every single mask, but you using them all and castumaizing them all depending on your face and skin
4.Coconut oil as a makeup remover
This is basically one of the best makeup removers out there, it melts your makeup perfectly and it’s natural and very moisturizing, and plus is cheep. Miracle, right?
5.Never apply creams after your powder
For the most part, creams give color, powders set. Even colored powders are more for setting than they are for pigmentation. So within the above order of applying makeup, you still defer to creams first, powders second. A cream blush goes on before a powder foundation, for example. So you do not want to apply any cream on top of powder, it can ruin and move all of your previous make up, all your hard work can vanish in a second. After you apply your powder and set your face, you are done, so make sure that you do nice and flawless job with your foundation and concealer, that you prepared your face properly so you can set all your makeup.
6.Use Matte Liquid lipstick as Eyeliner
Many times it’s hard to find eyeliner that’s as bold and bright as the shade you have in mind. The standard liner colors are black, brown and navy if you’re lucky. Now brands are branching out to include colorful liners in special, limited edition launches. Because they are limited editions you can’t always put your hand on it, or if you look in high-end makeup brands they are too expensive. The best alternative are matte liquid lipstick. They glide on perfectly and they dry matte, so they will not move and ruin your previous eye makeup.
Mixing your foundations to get your exact color match is probably one of the oldest tricks in the beauty handbook. But you can also mix foundations with different finishes, for example you can mix matte foundation with oil based foundation, and find perfect finish for you, because sometimes matte foundation can be to drying for us even if we have oily skin, but if you mix foundation you can find perfect match for you. You can also apply different foundations in different arias, for example you can use a matte foundation only in your T-zone where you tend to get oily trough the day and in the other arias you can apply moisturizing foundation, even a bb cream.
8.Make any lipstick a matte lipstick
This old trick really works. Put on a coat of lipstick, then lay a tissue across your lips. Dust translucent powder on to make the color set so it transform any lipstick into matte and also stays on longer.
9.Create a perfect Cupid’s Bow
Use your lip liner (same shade as your lipstick) to draw an “X” on your upper lip. Apply your lipstick, using the “X” as a guide. You will have the perfect pout. You can also use slightly darker lipliner or in the color of your lips and do the same thing if you don’t want to wear lipstick and make your lips look natural, like you already have the perfect cudip’s bow.
10.Intensify any eyeshadow
If you really want your eye shadow color to pop, use this trick. Apply white cream base or a white jumbo pencil or white eyeliner all over your eyelid. This will make a perfect base for any eyeshadow that you want to stand out.
