I feel like every girl has their own makeup tricks and hacks designed for their specific makeup routine…So I thought I’d share seven of mine that I’ve picked up and learned over the past few years! Let me know in the comments below if you have used any of these or some of your favorite tips! Now let’s carry on, shall we?!
When doing your eyebrows make for sure to use a very light hand, you do not want your eyebrows to look too dark to where they look unnatural. Also, you definitely don’t want the eyebrows to look too boxy and squared, keep them natural looking. To use a light hand, hold your eyebrow pencil with the hand and near the opposite end of your brush applicater/wand and don’t press firmly.
Apply a little bit of shiny/glossy lip gloss or lipstick to the center of your matte lips to make your lips seem nice and plump. It gives the illusion of your lips looking bigger.
Dampen your beauty blender, it makes the foundation/concealer spread farther and sinks into your skin, leaving a flawless effect.
When doing your concealer, I definitely recommend this trick. Apply your concealer in an upside-down triangle underneath the eye. This gives the effect that your eye has been lifted and it automatically brightens your undereye circles, rather than accentuating them. It also is an automatic highlight to your makeup when blended out!
Need a perfect highlighter or have an eyeshadow that you’d love to use as one?! Then use that eyeshadow! It can act exactly as a highlighter and no one will ever know the difference! Mind. Blown.
Out of eyeshadow primer? Just use a concealer! This is literally a money saver and life saver, especially last minute. It works and acts exactly like an eyeshadow primer, and lasts just as long!
Use a shimmery, bright eyeshadow color or even a highlighter that you may have for the inner corner of your eye. It brightens up the eyes and makes them seem more awake then they actually are. Such a life saver when you’re not feeling well, but still want to look good!
