Last year is all about going out from our comfort zones: dark lips, embracing freckles, tan skin, name it. These makeup trends were tried and tested. Checkout the latest professional makeup tips and tricks made easy for beginners:
Use spoon outside the kitchen
Aside from using it in stepping up your lash game, also use it under your eyes. Use it as “product shield” so you can freely apply a mascara without worrying of messing it up under your eyes. Hold the spoon as close to your skin as possible. The stainless or plastic material of the spoon also makes it easier for you to wipe off the remaining product residues. You can also use it on other parts as well, like upper eyelids, for creating a perfect eyeliner, etc.
Can’t perfect the winged eyeliner you’ve always dreamed of achieving from that makeup pro? Worry no more as you use another “product shield” technique but this time for eyeshadow and eyeliner purposes. Simply tape gently to the edge most part of your eye according to how high your wing you prefer to have.
DIY Eyeliner Gel
Turn your basic pencil eyeliner into an eyeliner gel by heating its tips. Typically, pencil eyeliners are much harder to apply. With the help of a match or lighter, magically turn them into a gel liner. Don’t forget to cool it down before smudging over.
More Mascara Volume
Dust your lashes with any loose powder available in between application to create a more volume, plumper strands of your eyelashes. Begin by applying your first coat of mascara. The wet and creamy texture easily absorbs the loose powder. Repeat the process according to your liking.
DIY Lip Gloss
Did you know that you can actually wear your favorite eyeshadow over your lips by only adding one ingredient? With Petroleum Jelly, it’s possible. Or you can opt to blend it over your lip balm instead for a more solid consistency.
Lipstick as concealer
You’re probably not one of the girls who prefers the red plump, so you start thinking of throwing these shades instead. Not anymore! Your (hatest) lipstick shade in red can actually play another role in your makeup routine. You may think of this as one of the most odd beauty hacks ever but trust us, this actually works color perspective wise.
For starters, peachy and pink hues will work best for fair skin while orange and dark shades will make your tan look better. Dab a thin layer under your eye and add concealer after. Consider this, doing the lipstick trick may sound like you’re adding another product in your routine but it actually cut your concealer application into half making your skin breathe by wearing lesser amount of makeup used. It automatically cuts down your cost too.
Washing your face mostly consist of a gentle upward massage to prevent it from sagging. However, applying a foundation does the opposite route. It’s because most, if not all of us, have naturally grown facial hairs and the only way to make it non-noticeable is brushing your foundation and concealer strokes downwards.
