tips and hacks always come in handy. It is smart to get your money’s worth by using the same product in multiple ways. Here are 15 makeup tips that will make sure you look your best at all times.

 

1. Sharing Is Not Caring.

It is not hygienic to share makeup items, even with your closest friends. There is a huge chance of infection spreading. Especially refrain from sharing eye and lip products.

The world of makeup is huge and full of wonders. Explore the world and keep discovering new ideas to express yourself through makeup. Hoping these 50 makeup tips will help you to look at the multitude of possibilities and keep the makeup adventure junkie in you alive.

 

2. Heat Your Eyelash Curler.

Blow your hair dryer on the eyelash curler before curling your lashes. The heat will help you to get perfectly curled lashes instantly. However, make sure the dryer is on low heat mode and test the temperature on your hand to avoid getting burned.

 

3. Use Waterproof Products Carefully.

Although water resistant products are good for long wear and stay put, extended exposure to such products can cause harm to your skin. As water resistant products require a lot of rubbing or special products to remove, wear and tear of the protective layer of the skin is highly possible.

 

4. Walk Into The Mist.

Your makeup is usually incomplete without a dash of your favorite perfume. However, don’t empty the bottle on yourself. If it’s a strong fragrance, instead of directly spraying it, spray it above your head, a little away from your body, and walk into the mist. It will distribute the fragrance evenly and linger on.

 

5. Make Your Own Palette.

Whether it a concealer palette or an eyeshadow palette, there are always only a few colors that we use. Palettes are usually expensive, so buy refill eyeshadows of the colors you like and set them in an empty box to make your own palette comprising of products you will actually use. It can save you a lot of money as single colors or refills cost way less than palettes.

 

6. Clean Your Brushes.

There is absolutely no excuse for not cleaning your brushes, unless a serious skin breakout is the look you are going for. Unclean brushes are breeding grounds for bacteria and makeup residues impact their performance as well. Clean them with a mild shampoo at least once a week.

 

7. Practice Overlining With Caution.

If you want your lips to appear slightly bigger, you can consider overlining your lips, that is, putting your lipliner outside your lips. However, be careful while doing this. If you go overboard, it will look too obvious and exceptionally tacky. For best results, apply along the outer margins of your lips.

8. Start From The Middle.

For a defined cupid’s bow, draw an ‘X’ where your cupid’s brow should be, and then apply the lipstick normally. Even if you do not plan to highlight your cupid’s bow, start applying the lipstick from the middle of your lips and move outwards for a flawless finish.

 

9. Prevention From Smudging.

When it comes to smudge prevention, kajal is not the easiest product to work with. However, to ensure your kajal stays put for hours, simply dab some eyeshadow over it once you are done. You can also use an eyeliner. Simply draw a line with the liner over your kajal. It will lock the kajal in place and also look super neat.

 

10. Go Natural With Tightlining.

Try tightlining for the perfect no makeup look. Instead of putting the eyeliner on the lashline, apply it beneath the line. Make sure you use a waterproof variant for this one.

 

11. Proxy For Eyeliner.

On the days when another battle with your eyeliner seems impossible or you just want a soft look, take an angular brush and use eyeshadow instead of an eyeliner on your upper lash line. It gives a natural and breezy look, absolutely perfect for summers.

 

12. Instant Eye Lift.

For an instant lift in the eyes, use your highlighter just above the arch of your brows and blend it out. It will not only define your eyebrows perfectly but also have a dramatic impact on the appearance of your entire face.

 

13. DIY Bronzer.

If you are in the mood for trying out something fun, try making your own bronzer. All you need are a few items that are already sitting on your kitchen shelf. Take some cinnamon powder, cocoa powder, some nutmeg powder, and mix with some cornstarch – and there you have your bronzer. If you are a fan of makeup with natural ingredients or want to keep chemicals completely at bay, it doesn’t get any more natural than this.

 

14. Blush Under Foundation.

This is also a clever way of reversing the order of applying the product to get smashing results. All you have to do is apply the blush first and then apply the foundation over it. The end result looks like you are glowing naturally from within.

 

15. Know The Important Focal Points.

This hack is for those days when you are running late or just feeling too lazy to apply your concealer properly. Just dab on a little concealer, preferably with a brush, under your eyes, on the corners of your mouth, and near your nose, and you are good to go.
