Makeup Hacks That Every Women (And Men) Should Know

Apart from the usual tips and techniques in makeup, having a bit of tricks and hacks up your sleeve should come in handy, especially if you’re in a state of emergency. Oh, I don’t know; it can be your favorite makeup product just ran out unexpectedly (or worse, lost) or perhaps you’re trying to glam up on a budget. Whatever the reason may be, these makeup tips will surely help you in the long run.

Makeup tips on your face

If you want a lightness of a makeup yet you are seeking a decent coverage, mix your favorite moisturizer with a drop of foundation (depending on the consistency and coverage that you need) and spread it evenly onto your face.

Finish with a little bit of mineral veil and you will look dewy fresh all day long.

Makeup tips for the peepers!

Want something different from the usual eyeliner? Try out this makeup tip: turn them into a gel-ish formula by holding the kohl under the flame for a few seconds and let it cool before applying them onto the lids. A more dramatic eye will certainly look back at you in the mirror.

Light and shimmery eye shadow colors are certainly a nuisance as you need to apply the color layer by layer to make it visible. Pop the color by applying an opaque, white eye shadow (beige also works well) and watch a single dust will make the color obvious. Alternatively, an eye primer can also produce the same effect.

It’s a rule that mascara has a lifespan of three months, after the cap is open for the first time. Here’s a makeup tip if the tube have ‘die’ shortly before the first three months – bring them back to life with a few drops of saline solution (not too much or it will be too runny to apply!).

For a longer and more curl for your lashes, use a heated lash curler (with iron or hair dryer) for few times before applying mascara. Works every time.

To avoid mascara marks smearing unnecessarily on the eye lid, cover them up with a spoon and apply the wand onto the lashes. Watch how un-pro fingers (that’s you!) work with no residue marks left on the lid. Alternatively, you can use the edge of a tissue for the same purpose.
