Makeup Tips and Tricks for Everyone
There are so many beauty looks out there these days. From influencers to YouTubers it is hard to keep up.
If you have a hard time getting these beauty looks right, you need these tips and tricks to help you get it right. These looks are easy when you know the right tips and tricks.
Melt Your Pencil Liner
Pencil liners are a must for any of the eye looks, you can't get a good eye look without the perfect liner. Pencil liners usually come in a pencil, but they are cream makeups.
Cream makeups will glide and apply smoother when heated. To melt your pencil liner, hold the tip of the pencil above a flame. Be careful not to burn we only want it to be warm so it will glide over the eyelid.
White Eyeliner Helps You Pop
If you want to use a lighter colored eyeshadow you can make it pop with a little white eyeliner. Eyeliner is not only for under the eyes.
Apply it over the entire eyelid and then apply your eyeshadow on top of the eyeliner. The white eyeliner will help intensify your shadow giving it a pop.
The cat-eye is a huge trend in the makeup world. It can be difficult to master though. One thing that will make it easier is using an outline. Use your eyeliner pencil to outline your cat eye, make it perfect.
It is much easier to remove the outline if you need to correct or start over. Once you have it perfect you can fill it all in and stay in the lines. Do your outline on both eyes and make sure they are even before you fill them in.
It's much easier to get that perfect look when you can practice with an outline and make adjustments.
Use a Spoon
I know it may sound silly to use a spoon when applying makeup but hear me out. Using a spoon as a stencil can help you get the perfect curve for your eyeliner application.
Hold the spoon handle up to your eyelid to follow for a straight line. For cat eyes or extended line looks it's a great way to make sure your lines look good. Now flip it over to apply the top line and get that perfect curve. Follow along the edge of the spoon with your liner to make the perfect lines for your eye look.
Hashtag Smoky Eye
The smoky eye seems like it should be easy. It may seem like applying some dark-colored shadows is all there is to it. It's a little harder than that, it can go bad quickly if you don't know how to do it right.
First, use a creamy liner to create a small hashtag symbol on the outside third of your eyelid on both sides. Now use a blender to smooth out the look. This will keep your look even on both sides and stop you from going overboard with the dark liners.
Spoon on the Mascara
Grab that spoon you used in the eyeliner tip above. You can also use it as a shield when applying mascara. Slide it between your eyelashes and eyelid and apply your mascara with no worries. You can apply it easier and get good coverage.
Saline Solution to the Rescue
Have you ever had your mascara dry up in the tube? First of all, a bonus tip only uses your mascara for three months tops. After that it's may collect bacteria that is not your friend.
If it dries up though before the three months are up, you can fix it. Put a couple of drops of saline solution in the tube and mix it with the brush. It will bring your mascara right back to life.
Heat Up that Curler
Have you seen the heated eyelash curlers? Don't spend money on that when you can do it yourself with a blow dryer. It is super easy, hold your curler in front of your blow dryer until it is warm.
Now curl away. Be careful though, don't burn your eyelid! Make sure it is warm but cooled off a bit. Test it out on the back of your hand before you use it on your eye.
Bobby Pin Double Duty
Those bobby pins are everywhere, it seems like they multiply sometimes. Use the end of a bobby pin to apply your eyelash glue. Put a small dot on the tip of one of the ends and glide it across your eyelash. Make for easy application and fewer messes.
Make Your Own Lipstick
If you like to match your lip color to your eyeshadow, then this is the perfect tip for you. Don't run out and buy a new lipstick every time you change eye color. Keep some petroleum jelly on hand.
Mix a little bit of your eyeshadow and some petroleum jelly to have an instant lipstick. Apply to your lips to have that perfect complete look.
