Over the past year I’ve grown from a not-so enthusiastic fan of makeup to someone who sees the importance of looking good with as little makeup as possible. Some hacks come very handy on days I’m either dashing out to work or having a last minute outing and these are easy everyday beauty hacks every girl should know. Honestly, I only do full face makeup on special occasions. However, the essence of makeup cannot be undermined as makeup could have you go from looking extremely stressed to looking great in less than 10 minutes. Hacks are generally a faster and easy way to do something without the normal procedure or tools needed.
Carry a makeup purse with your essential makeup
Makeup bags and purses come in different sizes and styles these days which makes them easy to carry around in handbags. Have your concealer, powder, bronzer, eyeliner and lipstick in a makeup purse which you can create a look from or even touch up the makeup you already have on. Your makeup brushes can also go into the makeup purse depending on how large it is.
Curl your eyelashes with a spoon
You can make your lashes look fuller simply by placing a spoon on your upper eyelid and pressing your lashes against them. If you do not have mascara with you or lashes curler, this hack would come in handy.
Make your pencil eyeliner darker by heating it
This beauty hack works incredibly! Just hold your pencil eyeliner (or brow pencil) to heat for a few seconds and it will come out looking darker and almost gel like. For those that don’t know the difference between pencil and gel eyeliner, gel eyeliner is basically in a liquid like form which goes on more smoothly and pigmented.
Eyeshadow instantly improves your looks
Eyeshadow calls attention to the eyes and enhances beauty instantly. It’s important you know the colors that go well with your skin tone though. I am particularly a fan of subtle eyeshadow but some people like the smoky look and don’t mind loud colors on their eyelids which is fine. Loud eyeshadow colors should be complimented with subtle lipstick color. If you’ve got no time to spare, leave one for the other.
Lipstick doubles as a blush
Get some of your red or pink lipstick depending on your skin color and dab a little on your cheekbones. Rub lightly and your cheeks will look pinker, creating the blush effect. Matte lipsticks won’t work for this hack though.
Use a business card for the perfect cat eye
Whether you’re trying to get the perfect cat eye shadow look or simply using liquid eyeliner, a business card, ATM card or any other hard card would help you get the perfect angle until you master drawing it. I learned how to draw a winged eyeliner with a business card.
Smudge your eyeliner to create a smoky look
So you have no eyeshadow palette on you but you’ve got eyeliner? Apply and smudge a little to create a smoky effect. I have turned a smeared mascara into a smoky look using this hack a couple of times and I got away with it just fine.
