You don’t have to spend hours in front of a mirror to get your makeup perfect. There are all kinds of little tricks you can use that will make applying cosmetics much easier and ensure that you always have the look you are going for. Here are the top makeup Tricks that will change your life:
1. Oily Nose Makeup Fix
If you have an oily nose, use eyeshadow primer on your nose. Then spray with setting spray, then stipple your foundation on it. This will help it to last all day! This is probably one of the top questions I receive. Above I used Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden. Eden is a creamy vanilla nude that works well with my skintone.
2. Mascara Magic Tip
My friend Corinne swears by this trick. Stick your mascara tube next to your skin to warm it up (she does it between the boobs). It makes the mascara apply easier and it’s less prone to clumping. Shown with my favorite – Urban Decay Perversion Mascara.
3. Contouring for Fuller Lips Trick
I know you’re thinking, contouring is overdone. No seriously though, hear me out. Use a darker lip pencil to outline your lips. Then fill in the center of your lips with a much lighter lip pencil. Then put on your lipstick. It will create a multi-dimensional lip look that makes your lips appear fuller. I used Urban Decay 24/7 Lip Pencils in Native and Anarchy with Frenemy Vice Lipstick.
4. Eye Lift Makeup Hack
Grab a light pink-beige or beige matte pencil or eyeshadow if you have pale skin like mine. If you have a deeper skintone, I would use a brightening concealer shade. Now apply this color along the entire bottom length of your eyebrow and the outer 2/3 above your eyebrow too. Blend it out. I used Cover FX Perfect Pencil in N X-Light.
5. Achieve Perfect Winged Eyeliner With a Spoon
To get that winged effect everyone loves so much, you only need one common household item: a spoon. Start your eyeliner as you would for a cat eye look, press the rounded side of the spoon against your eyelid, and move the spoon outwards to create the winged effect.
6.Eyeliner Migration Makeup Fix
Eyeliner migration has happened to me a lot. I’ll put on eyeliner, and then a few hours later I’ll end up with dark spots under my eyes. To prevent that, take an eyeshadow that matches the eyeliner pencil and use that to set the eyeliner. Then use a setting powder underneath the eyeliner. I lined with Urban Decay Mood Pencil, set with my Viseart Navy from the Bright Editorial palette, then used NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder.
7. Lipstick Hack
You may already know my favorite lipstick hack. After you’ve applied your lipstick and blotted it, take a tissue and hold it over your lips, then use a brush to sweep setting powder over your lips. This will help your lipstick last longer. I used NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder.
8.Funky French Mani Beauty Hack
If you love having a french manicure, use a thick rubber band to section off your nail and then paint the uncovered part. You can choose any color you want, so you don’t have to stick to boring white.
