10 Makeup Tips That Make Your Makeup Infinitely Easier
Statistics show that 60% of women in Europe and America wear makeup. How about you? Do you wear makeup every day?
If so, you need these.
Tip 1: Melt Your Pencil Liner to Help It Glide
Creamy makeup products blend better when they’re warmed up. So if your eyeliner pencil skips or tugs on your eyelid or takes multiple coats for a decent color payoff, melt it down slightly before you start lining. To do so, hold the tip of your liner under the flame of a lighter for a second or until it gets tacky, let it cool slightly (swatch it on your hand to make sure it’s not too hot or melted), then watch the consistency change right before your eyes.
Tip 2: Use White Eyeliner to Make Your Eyeshadow Pop
To make a sheer or less pigmented eyeshadow appear more vibrant on your eyelid, blend a white eyeliner pencil over your entire eyelid first. Then, put your eyeshadow right on top. The opaque coverage of the white liner will intensify.
Tip 3: Outline Your Cat Eye First
If you’re struggling with nailing your winged eyeliner look (also, hi, same, I feel you), try drawing the outline of the shape first and then filling it in. Extend a line beyond your lower lash line to create the bottom of your cat eye first. Then, decide on the thickness you want for your wing, and trace the top line from the end point of your flick to your upper lash line. Once you have the shape mapped out on both sides and everything looks symmetrical, fill in the open space.
Tip 4: Use a Spoon as a Stencil Winged Liner
If freehand drawing your cat eye just isn’t gonna happen for you, grab a spoon and use it as a stencil. Holding the stem of a spoon against the outer corner of your eye, use a liquid eyeliner to draw a straight line as the first step for your cat eye. Then, flip the spoon so it’s hugging your eyelid, and use the rounded outer edge to create a perfectly curved winged effect.
Tip 5: Use a Spoon as a Mascara Shield
Nothing is more annoying than making your eyeshadow look perfect, and then swiping on mascara and ruining the whole thing with smudges. The fix? Hold a spoon so it's hugging your eyelid, then apply your mascara like you normally would. As you sweep the mascara wand against your lashes and back of the spoon, the residue will coat the back of the utensil rather than your skin. Genius.
Tip 6: Heat Your Eyelash Curler With a Hair Dryer
DIY your own heated lash curler by blowing hot air on your eyelash curler. The added heat will help your lashes curl faster and keep the shape for longer. Just hit your lash curler with a blow dryer until it heats up, wait until it cools slightly but is still warm (test it on the inside of your arm so you don’t burn your eyelid), then clamp down on your lashes to curl them.
Tip 7: Plump Your Lashes With Translucent Powder
Dust some translucent setting powder on your lashes between coats of mascara to plump up your lashes. The translucent powder helps grip the mascara in between coats, leaving you with fuller, more voluminous lashes.
Tip 8: Conceal Under Your Eyes With a Triangle Shape
If you want to really brighten your under-eye area, stop dotting on your concealer and try applying it in a triangular shape. Draw the base of the triangle directly under your lash line and the tip pointing toward the apple of your cheek. This helps fully conceal any redness and shadows to create the illusion of brighter under eyes.
Tip 9: Map Your Contours With a Brow Pencil
Don’t have a cream contour stick? No problem. After you’ve applied your foundation, mark the areas you want to contour—the hollows under your cheekbones, your temples, along your hairline, jawline, the sides of your nose, the tip of the nose, and the crease of your eyes—with a deeply colored brow gel pencil. Yep, you read that right. Brow gel pencils are really concentrated, yet very smudge-able, which makes them perfect for contouring.
Tip 10: Blot Your Oil With a Clean Toilet Seat Cover
Okay, yes, this sounds gross, but hear me out! Both blotting papers and toilet seat covers are made out of similar materials and will help soak up the excess oil on your skin. So, if you’re in a pinch and headed to the bathroom to freshen up anyway, grab one of these covers and pat it over your T-zone to decrease any excess oil on your face.
OK, that is all, we hope they are helpful for you.
