Makeup hacks and techniques are something that everyone should know. These amazing hacks will save you time and money. Today, we will tell you how to enhance your lashes and how to shield your eye shadow from the frequent mascara war.
Here are top 15 makeup hacks that will change your life
1. Don’t Test Foundation on Your Wrists
You need to test foundation and concealer on your face or neck, instead of your arm or hand. It is because your hand is likely to be of a different color from your face, so it is the only way to get an accurate color match for the foundation.
2. Work on Lashes
Begin with the application of first coat of mascara, followed by dusting the lashes with a coat of loose powder. This will aid in enhancing the lashes by making them appear thick. Now you may add a second coat of mascara to cover the dustiness and you’ll see the difference for yourself.
3. The Right Way to Apply Concealer
This makeup hack will brighten your under eyes and highlight your pupils. You just have to apply the concealer in upside down triangle instead of dotting it under your eyes. Try and see the difference.
4. Use Eye Shadow as Eyeliner
Your eye shadow pallet can do wonders for you. You just need to know the proper tricks. If you ever run out of eyeliners, your pallet can come in handy. You can use this simple makeup hack by wetting an angle brush with water or setting spray, and then dipping the brush into your eye shadow. After this, you need to line your eye as you would normally do with traditional liner.
5. Apply White or Nude Liner to Your Waterline to Widen Eyes
White liners help open and widen your eyes, which is in contrast to what the dark liners do. You only have to find a liner that is a few shades lighter than your skin tone and apply it to your waterline. This will give the illusion of big and brighter eyes.
6. Brush Your Brows into Place
You do know that your eyebrows are a crucial part of your face, right? If you don’t, read on. This makeup hack is life-changing if you ever run out of brow gel. Apply a tiny amount of hair gel onto a clean spoolie or a toothbrush, then brush your brows into place. It is a quick and easy trick suitable for your brows.
7. Highlight Your Cupid’s Bow
Highlighting lips gives an illusion of fuller lips by making them appear bigger. Firstly, get your preferred lipstick shade and apply it. Then dab some highlighter on the cupid’s bow of your lips and see the difference right away.
8. Use Lip Liner for an Illusion of Fuller Lips
This is another method to project your lips bigger than they actually are. Using lip liners over natural lips can make your pout appear larger. For long-lasting coverage, use a lip liner that is of the same color as your lipstick and apply it.
9. Set Lipstick with Translucent Powder
This is an old trick that really works. For this, you only have to put on a coat of lipstick and lay a tissue across your lips. Dust some translucent powder on the lips in order to set the color so that it stays put for long.
10. Achieve Perfectly Winged Eyeliner with a Spoon
Don’t you want the much talked winged effect that everyone loves so much? You can get it with one household item: a spoon. First, line your eyes as you would for a cat eye look. Hold the round side of the spoon against your eyelid, then move the spoon outwards to create the winged effect.
11. Turn Eye shadows into Lip Gloss
Trust me when I say that this is the best makeup hack ever! If you have an eye shadow that you love, and you would also like to wear it as a lip shade, you only have to mix the loose pigments with a little bit of petroleum jelly. Voila! Your custom-made lip gloss is ready to be applied.
12. No more Lipstick on Your Teeth
To get rid of excess lipstick that gets stuck on the teeth, you can do a simple trick. Put one finger in your mouth after applying lipstick. Then, close your lips around the finger and pull it out of your mouth. Thus, the excess lipstick will get on your finger rather than sticking onto the teeth.
13. Curl Your Lashes Faster
DIY your own heated lash curler by blowing hot air on your eyelash curler. The additional heat will help you curl your lashes faster. It will also keep the lashes in proper position for longer duration.
14. Melt Your Pencil Liner to Help it Glide
Cream products blend better when they are heated. You can choose to slightly melt the eyeliner pencil before you start lining your eyes. This way, you do not need to do multiple coatings. Thus, saving time and effort.
15. Use a Spoon as a Mascara Shield
How immensely annoying it is to smudge your mascara while trying to apply it! Here’s the fix – use a spoon at the back of your lashes and apply the mascara. If you fumble, the residue will coat the spoon rather than your skin.
