Sometimes we do things the same way for years and never change our routine. Then someone mentions a little trick and we wonder "Why didn't I think of that?" We've put together eight make-up tricks and tips. If you have one, comment below and share with the rest of us!
Use eyeliner that has the undertones of the opposite color of your eyes to help each stand out and make your eyes pop! Blue eyes use copper eyeliner. Brown eyes, use navy blue. Green eyes, use purple.
Adding a wing to your eyeliner: place your pen at the outmost part of your nostril, then angle it upward to meet the outer edge of your eye. Start the wing at that spot and draw down toward your lash line.
Mascara goes on more smoothly if it is warm. Stick it in your bra while you do your other make-up or point a warm air dryer at it for a few seconds.
Use your hair dryer to SLIGHTLY heat up your eyelash curler (be sure to hold it against your wrist to make sure it isn’t too hot), and then curl your eyelashes while holding the curler horizontal to the floor rather than perpendicular.
Make your eyes look brighter: Use white eyeliner on your lower lash waterline, and then also white liner with a tad of shimmer on the inner corners of your eyes.
Brush your lips with a toothbrush and Vaseline. Do it before you apply lip color and it makes dramatic lipstick look smoother.
Make lips look fuller: Put highlighter on your cupid’s bow and in the center of your bottom lip. It gives more lip definition and makes them look fuller.
Moisturize 5 to 10 minutes ahead of applying foundation. Your makeup will be easier to apply and It will rest better on your skin. It’s so simple, yet many people don’t do this.
