Top Five Makeup Hacks!

Top Five Makeup Hacks!

Hey gals! I know sometimes we struggle with perfecting our makeup and getting it to look like it was done professionally. Well today, I’m bringing you 5 makeup hacks that will improve your skills and make life much easier.

Hack #1:

Are you looking like a raccoon by the end of the day? By using a gel liner, like the ones commonly used to create wings, in our water line will prolong the wear of the black liner. Gel liners will improve the color pay off and wont smudge throughout the day.

My favorite gel liner is the Anastasia Beverly Hills WaterProof Creme Color in Jet.

Hack #2:

I don’t know about you but I love getting my moneys worth! By cutting into a tube of liquid foundation, you can use the remaining product before dumping out the container.

Who would’ve thought?

A great drugstore foundation that comes in a tube is the L’Oreal Pro Matte Foundation.

Hack #3:

When creating bold looks, try using a white base underneath your lid color. The white will make the eyeshadow pop and intensify it.

A shadow I love doing this with is All That Glitters by MAC.

Hack #4:

If you’re looking for a lipstick color that will last, try using this trick!

Apply your favorite lipstick, whether it be a red or light pink. Press one ply of toilet paper over you lips and pat it with a big powder brush and some translucent powder.

To finish this, layer a last coat of lipstick and you have got yourself a long wearing lipstick.

One famous lip color is Ruby Woo by MAC, perfect for this.

Hack #5:

Often while we apply mascara, we run the wand too far and smudge some on our lid.

Don’t freak! I got you covered.. Wait a few minutes, once the smudge is dry grab a cotton swab and lightly run it over the mascara. This flick the dry product right off!
