TOP 10 EVERYDAY COSMETIC TIPS THAT ALWAYS WORK
Whether you are new to applying makeup or consider yourself a pro, many cosmetic tips and tricks will make your makeup application easier and look more professional., but plenty more are out there. Here are the top 10 beauty tips:
1. MASCARA WANDS FOR YOUR EYEBROWS
Use your mascara wand (spoolie brush) to plump up your eyebrow arches. Quickly brush them upwards to give you a fuller look. When you have time on your hands to fill in your eyebrows, your mascara wand can help you prep your eyebrows and ensure the hairs are in the right place before you get started with your powders, gels, and pencils. To skip this step entirely, you can always go for professional quality at home eyebrow tinting. We also have a guide on everything you need to know to get your eyebrows tinted
2. LIP COLOR THAT LASTS
No one likes lipstick that doesn’t last and needs to be constantly reapplied. Here’s a hack for that. Put on your favorite lipstick, put a tissue over your mouth, and then dust translucent powder over the top of the tissue. This will help to set the lipstick and stop it from fading. And the tissue will protect the lipstick from becoming lighter from the powder.
3. NO MASCARA MESSES
So you’ve created the perfect eyeshadow look or smokey eyes, and then you put on your mascara, and whoops, the whole look is smudged! The tip here is to hold a spoon over your eyelid and then apply your mascara. There’s no chance of swiping your mascara over your masterpiece this way.
4. DO AWAY WITH FOUNDATION FUZZ
If you don’t want the hair on your face standing out like peach fuzz after applying your foundation, and let’s face it, who does? Try applying your foundation using downward strokes only. If you stroke it upwards, your hair will stand out.
5. HOW TO SPEED UP CURLING YOUR LASHES
If you heat up your eyelash curler, you will curl them faster, and they will keep their shape for longer. This works the same way a hair curler would. Heated hair holds its form much easier, and for longer. So how do you do this? Heat your curler with your blow dryer. Of course, you don’t want to burn your eyelid, so let it cool slightly or test it on your arm before clamping down your eyelashes and curling. For a faster and safer way to heat your eyelash curler, PermaCurl provides a better way to heat your traditional eyelash curler. Simply pop your traditional squeeze curler into the warming unit, and it’ll be the perfect temperature to curl in a minute. No standing around with a blow dryer necessary!
6. BLENDING BRONZER BETTER
Are you looking to create chiseled features with your bronzer? Draw two inverted triangles on your cheeks with a bronzer. Once this is done, you can blend it out, and soon you’ll have the best blended bronzer and features that are perfectly edged.
7. NO MORE SMUDGED KAJAL
Kajal is notorious for smudging, but it is still such a widely used and fantastic product. So how can you use it better and stop the smudging? Simply pat some eyeshadow over it once you are finished applying it, and that will lock in the kajal and prevent the dreaded smudge.
8. TIGHTLINING FOR A NATURAL LOOK
Tightlining is when you apply eyeliner right to the base of your lashes. This will create a fuller appearance around your lashes, and it won’t even look like you are wearing makeup. A tip on how to tightline well is to use a brush to gently push your gel eyeliner into the roots of your top eyelashes. Check out this video for more help.
9. HOW TO QUICKLY PERFECT THE SMOKEY EYE
The smokey eye is always a popular look, but it can take quite a while to blend by using many different eyeshadow shades. But to do it quickly, there is something called the hashtag hack that you can try out. Use an eye pencil to draw a slanted hashtag above the outer corners of your eyes and blend with a smudger tool. This will help you create that smokey eye with dark and light shades in all the right places.
10. LIGHTEN YOUR FOUNDATION
If you’re looking to lighten the look of your foundation, you can add one or two drops of argan oil before applying it. This will lighten the shade while keeping it easy to glide onto your skin. The oil will also help add a warm glow to your skin that evens out reflecting light – that means the perfect selfie.
