Surely you would go to a beauty salon for makeup. Whatever stops you in perfecting the art yourself at home? All you need to know is your face shape, the colours that would flatter your face, how to apply the makeup and you are good to go. Here are a couple of makeup tricks to make you look beautiful and irresistible.
Applying mascara on your lower eyelashes is easy without any room of smudge on the under-eye skin. Use a plastic spoon, an instrument that helps you get a thicker coat.
Scotch Tape Eye Stencil:
If you want to go for a daring look, then this unconventional beauty aid will not disappoint you. Use a piece of scotch tape to make a balanced and even look for both eyes.
Hiding Under Eye Bags:
Instead of sweeping concealer to the under eye area, go and highlight the crease and then apply a darker shade to the puffy area.
Fixing Clumped Mascara:
Add eye drops or contact solution to your mascara. This will reduce the clumping and make it easier to apply.
Making Eyes Bigger:
Agreed black eyeliner defines the eyes but it is the white eyeliner that makes your eyes look larger.
Which girl would not want to flaunt big and curly eyelashes? When you use the lash curler, pinch it at the base of your lashes and then lift the curler up. You can also hold a blow dryer to your eye lash curler for 5-7 seconds. This will keep your lashes curled up nicely.
This is an interesting way to applying your eyeliner in between your lashes. A great way to define your eyes, it makes the base of your lashes look thicker.
Making Lipstick Last:
Creating a matte look on lips is the new trend these days. Place a tissue over your just applied lipstick, then powder your lips over the tissue. This will develop a long lasting matte look. Use a baby toothbrush to exfoliate your lips. To do that, make a homemade lip exfoliate using sugar and coconut oil. You can also cover your lips in lip balm or petroleum jelly before scrubbing.
There are many ways to cover the blemishes. Instead of using the whole concealer, rub a bit of it on an eyeliner brush and then apply to get a unique touch.
Flawless Finish: A small drop of oil is all you need for a radiant complexion. Make your foundation more fluid and thinner without sacrificing any coverage is by adding a small drop of facial oil to your foundation. You can use any oil like argan oil, olive oil, coconut oil or any other beauty oil, mix it in your cream or liquid foundation and then apply it with your fingers or makeup sponge for a flawless finish. The oil makes your makeup look refreshed and more luminous. You’ll find that your skin’s texture will be improved and the oil will help provide a more flawless finish.
Washing Mascara Wands:
There is often the tendency to throw away mascara wands once they have been used. Save the expense of buying a new mascara wand by washing the used wands for further use.
Throwing away Used Makeup:
If we keep our makeup for too long, chances are they might become unhealthy for our skin and eyes. Ideally, use mascara for 3-4 months, foundation for 6-12months, lipstick for 12-18 months, eyeliner for 2 years.
Happy keeping your makeup lasting with simple objects!
