You don’t have to spend hours in front of a mirror to get your makeup perfect. There are all kinds of little tricks you can use that will make applying cosmetics much easier and ensure that you always have the look you are going for. Here are some makeup hacks that will change your life:
Turn Eyeliner Pencil Into Gel
This will make eyeliner easier to apply because it makes it softer. Simply place the tip of the eyeliner pencil over a flame for one second. Wait about 15 seconds for it to cool down, and apply.
Get More Out of Liquid Makeup
Don’t throw away makeup in tubes just because it seems like they are empty. Cut them open, and scoop the makeup into plastic pots. This is a great way to save money on makeup.
Make Eye Shadow Stand Out With White Eyeliner
If you really want your eye shadow color to pop, use this trick. Apply white eyeliner all over your eyelid. Then apply your favorite shadow. The white will help to intensify the color.
Easy Eyelash Glue Application
Applying eyelash glue can be so tricky. Make it easier by putting the glue on a bobby pin. Apply the glue with the tip of the bobby pin for a more even and quicker application.
Make Your Own Lip Gloss
Don’t throw away your broken eye shadows. Instead, turn them into lip gloss. Crush the eye shadow into powder, then mix with petroleum jelly to make any color lip gloss you like.
Create Natural Contouring
It can be difficult to figure out where to put blush or bronzer for contouring. The easy way is to use your eyeliner pencil, or even a makeup brush handle. Place the straight edge directly below your cheekbone to get the right angle.
Cover Up Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles
Forget about dotting your concealer. Instead, apply it in a triangle shape, with the base at your lash line and the tip at the bottom of your cheek. This will hide redness beneath the eyes, and brighten up your whole face.
