There are few moments in every girl’s life that will make it ten times better. Well, this is one of them. The 9 life altering makeup hacks we are about to uncover will leave you happier than a kid in a candy store.
1. Skip the Clear Base Coat
Use a coat of white nail polish instead of a base coat. This will make your nail color stand out more. It will still protect your nails from becoming stained by colored polishes.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Achieve Perfect Winged Eyeliner With a Spoon
To get that winged effect everyone loves so much, you only need one common household item: a spoon. Start your eyeliner as you would for a cat eye look, press the rounded side of the spoon against your eyelid, and move the spoon outwards to create the winged effect.
5. 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.
6. Curl Your Lashes Faster
Use your hairdryer to heat your eyelash curler. Let it cool a bit, then use as you normally would. The heat will set the curl so it lasts longer.
7. 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.
8. Apply Dry Shampoo at Night
Use dry shampoo just before going to bed. As you move around in your sleep, the shampoo will really get worked into the hair. You will wake up with loads of volume and body.
9. Reuse Mascara Brushes
Sometimes you get a mascara brush you really like. You don’t have to throw it away when the mascara is gone. Clean it off, and use it with other types of mascara.
