I don’t know about you, but I am always open for new ideas and tricks when it comes to makeup. Experimenting with different methods is important for finding the perfect routine that you can call “your own”. Makeup tips are always helpful, especially if you are a beginner in makeup and you want to find the easiest way to looking flawless. So let’s dig into these tips right away and stop wasting time.
01) White eye pencil tricks
Have you ever been put on Saturday night and the next morning you woke up looking like your eyes are bloodshot? We have all been there! The easiest way to make your eyes look more open and less tired is by using a white eye pencil in the waterline of your eye. White eye pencil can also be used as an eyeshadow base. Just smudge white eye pencil all over the lid and make those bright colors pop. White eye pencil can also be a helpful tool if you want to make your lips pop. Just contour the outside of your lips with a white pencil and blend it into the skin to contour lip lines and make your lips stand out.
02) Spoon Tricks
I am getting tired of social media clickbait and different tools beauty gurus use to attract attention, but there is one tool that turns out to be helpful. You can use a spoon to draw a cat eye by placing the spoon onto your lid and drawing with a liner by following the curve of the spoon. Spoon can also be used when applying mascara, to protect smudges on upper lid.
03) Heat makes it happen
If your eye pencil or lip liner has become too sturdy or you kept it somewhere cold, just use a lighter to make it softer. Just make sure you don’t place the lighter too close or you might get a liquid lip liner instead. Use your blowdryer to heat up your eyelash curler and make your eyelashes curl much easier.
04) Creasing Tricks
Creasing is one of the most common problems when it comes to makeup. Nobody wants to see their masterpiece of makeup ruined after few hours by lines that get created by our facial expressions. To prevent creasing under the eye, where you used a concealer, try the baking technique with a translucent powder. If you don’t have time for that, just set your concealer with some loose powder. If you want to avoid your eye makeup from creasing, then avoid using concealer on your lids. Use an eyeshadow base instead or just leave it with your foundation on.
05) Get that Perfect cat eye
I draw a cat eye almost every day with my liner and I was always counting on luck when it comes to making it look even. Using tape at the end of my eyes really helped me get that even look and it made my liner look much more “snatched”. Another liner trick is to use the dots technique, where you draw small dots which you connect into a cat eye. Liner can also be drawn mu h more easily by drawing the flick or the outer corner wing and then filling in the rest.
06) Mascar Tricks
When your mascara dries down and you are in a hurry to go out, just add few drops of lenses solution in the bottle. This is going to make it less dry and save you some money because you won’t be wasting any product. If you want thicker lashes, just dust some baby powder on your lashes before applying the mascara. Before you throw away your mascara brush, save it clean it and use it to declump lashes instead of buying a brush or comb for that.
07) Keep your tools clean
This is not a tip for applying makeup, but it i still important to keep everything clean if you are going to use it on your face. Best way to clean your brushes is by using a mixture of baking soda and warm water. Place your brushes in a bowl filled with this mixture and let them sit in there for an hour. After that, use some mild soap and clean your brushes under a faucet. Dirty makeup brushes can contain harmful bacteria and cause skin breakouts.
