Despite the fact that we’re all very different and have our own visions of what is beautiful, there are some hacks that can suit everyone.
It’s pretty easy to understand why a person wants to look good and the countless hours spent in front of the mirror shouldn’t be a waste of time, right? Makeup is a great way to try different looks and styles that best fit your persona.
Bright Side collected some tips that will help you feel even better about your appearance!
1. Belly contouring
Summer is in full swing and it’s hard to overcome the desire to put on a short top. But many of us are too shy to show off our stomachs. In order to give off the appearance of having a toned torso, you can just contour your belly. Apply foundations of different colors to create six-pack abs and just blend the lines.
2. Prevent watery eyes
You can try this method before applying eye makeup. It will take you one minute. Wet a towel or cloth in warm water, put it over your eyes, and gently massage the area.
3. Create smooth eyebrows
You can use tweezers to help you draw smooth lines. Apply a little eyebrow gel or pencil on the edges of the tweezers and draw along the eyebrows.
4. Baby oil for lips
You can prepare a special scrub in order to return softness to your lips.
Mix ½ tbsp of sugar with 1 tbsp of baby oil into a paste. Add a couple of drops of lemon juice or ½ tsp of vaseline. Apply the mixture to your lips with your finger and rub. Use lip balm after washing the paste off your lips.
5. No lipstick on teeth
To avoid getting lipstick on your teeth, form an O shape with your lips, put your finger in your mouth, and pull it out slowly so that the excess lipstick will remain on your finger and won’t appear on your teeth.
6. Applying concealer under your eyes
The concealer triangle will help you hide dark circles. Draw lines from the inner and outer corners of the eye to the top of the cheek. Apply the concealer inside the triangle and blend it.
7. Lipstick from eye shadow
Sometimes it can be quite difficult to find the perfect shade of lipstick for your skin color. The good news is that you can easily create it yourself!
Place the contents of colorless chapstick into a glass container and then add some eye shadow to it and put it in the microwave for about 2 minutes. Then stir it together and pour it into an empty lipstick container. Wait until the lipstick cools and then you’ll have your perfect lipstick color!
8. Restoring a dry pencil liner
You won’t deny that it’s difficult to use a dry eye pencil. In that case, you can take a hair dryer and direct it at the eyeliner. Make sure to dry over the entire pencil for over half a minute. Now you can use your favorite liner again without any problems.
9. Lip products as eye shadow
You can easily use lip products on the eyes. Lipstick, lip liner, and gloss can be an excellent substitute for eye shadow. Firstly, it’s very convenient to use one thing for several purposes. And secondly, you save money on buying extra products.
10. Perfect eye wing with a pencil
You can use an ordinary pencil to draw smooth eye wings without any difficulty. Apply a bit of eyeliner on your arm and dip the pencil in it. Then put it to the eye edge and carefully draw a wing.
11. White eyeliner for bigger eyes
It’s a well-known fact that black eyeliner makes our eyes look smaller. So you can use a white one to achieve the opposite effect. Just apply it to the inner eyelid and your eyes will look bigger. If you want it to look more natural, use a nude liner.
12. Dot contouring
The rules of dot contouring are the same as for the usual method — you need to lighten the center of the forehead, the area under the eyes, the chin and the nose. Highlight the cheekbones and the forehead on the sides toward the temples. You can also add blush to the top of your cheeks. After you have placed all the dots in the necessary areas, blend them in.
