Let’s take a close look at these hacks that will make your life easier and super fun.
1. Apply Foundation before Concealer
Starting your makeup with a foundation instead of concealer is going to cut any discoloration and redness. It is a hack that few artists are going to tell you. A foundation is also going to create a smooth canvas that you can add layers on. This is also great when you are almost running out of concealer, so you don’t need to use the extra product. Once you have your foundation base ready you can use concealer to work on all the extra redness and blemishes. Need some more convincing? This hack is great to avoid creasing and caking.
2. Exfoliate your lips before applying Lipstick
Scrubbing your lips before applying lipstick preps your lips. Chapped lips are not pleasing for anybody, your lipstick feels the same way. Use a gentle lip scrub and buff away any unwanted dry skin. Beware to not exfoliate your lips every day as that may tend to irritate and bruise your lips, do it once a week for smoother lips.
3. Melt your pencil liner to help it glide
Have you ever had a pencil liner that tugs at your skin instead of gliding? If you answered yes, try this hack. And you only need an eyeliner pencil and a heat source. Hold the tip of your pencil over any small heat source like a lighter or candle. Keep rotating it for a few seconds and it will begin to melt. Let it cool down for a bit and test it out on the back of your palm. Ensure it has cooled down well before you use it.
4. Make your eyeshadow pop with white eyeliner
Trying out Pinterest-inspired eye makeup looks and wondering why it is never as good as it looks on Pinterest? Try this hack. Before you try out trendy eyeshadows, prep your eyelids with white eyeliner this will create a clean white background for the bright colors to pop out. Apply your eyeshadow directly on the white eyeliner so it stands out.
5. Use a spoon as a mascara shield
Told you we will be using more than just makeup products! Are you the one who avoids using mascaras only because it tends to get messy? You can use this awesome hack to avoid mascara ruining your eye makeup and get your eyes done in a jiffy as well. All you need is a spoon and your favorite mascara that elongates your lashes. Hold a spoon like it’s hugging your eyelid and swipe your mascara wand as you normally would over your lashes. This will ensure that the mascara only gets onto your eyelashes and nowhere else.
6. Map your contours with a brow pencil
Ran out of your cream contour stick? Absolutely no problem! Use a brow pencil to map out the area you wish to contour, over your foundation. Run it over the hollows under your cheekbones, over the temples of your forehead, sides of your nose, hairline, and jawline. A brow gel pencil is great for contouring as it is highly pigmented and easy to blend out. You don’t want any harsh lines to ruin your contour.
7. Test foundation and concealer on your neck instead of face
Next time you head out to buy a foundation and concealer, test it out on your neck instead of your face. This might seem a little odd right now but you will thank this hack when you get the perfect shade for yourself. The color of your neck is least affected by sun or acne, it is closest to your true skin tone.
Use these 7 best makeup hacks to make your life a lot easier especially for those who avoid the luxury of makeup because c’mon it is a little tedious. These makeup hacks will make you comfortable and save you hours of sitting in front of the mirror trying to figure out how your makeup will last longer and look flawless. Makeup is great to uplift your spirits and accentuates your beauty.
