MAKEUP HACKS YOU SHOULD KNOW
I know there are dozens of makeup hack all over the web but the ones I am about to share are the ones that I use most times. They may be few or common but they always come in handy especially in an emergency.
Another advantage of the makeup hacks I am about to share is that it is good for light travellers who still want to slay. Are you on a tight budget? Oh! Yes! this for you as well… make the best of what you already have in your makeup purse while you save up for that important project you have in mind or save up for your school books or solve a serious problem , pay the bills or just save money because there are many ways to use one product and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Let’s dive right in …
BABY POWDER AS SETTING POWDER
Well, this is very common I must say, especially for setting your concealer highlights. But you have to be careful with this; make sure you dust it off properly to avoid white cast on your face.
2. MASCARA + ANGLED BRUSH = EYELINER
You know how it hurts to run out of eyeliner? OMG! This is an emergency situation !!! So, here is what you do. You need an eyeliner brush or an angled brush and your mascara. Pull out your mascara wand and touch your brush on the wand to take some product … Voila! you have yourself some eyeliner.
3. SHIMMERY EYESHADOWS FOR HIGHLIGHTERS
you can customize this to your taste. you can use the gold-toned eyeshadows, the bronze ones, the peachy / rose gold ones, even the silvery ones depending on the look you are going for. This comes in handy when you are travelling, you don’t need to carry so many products because one product can serve two purposes.
4. BROW PENCIL AS LIP LINER
Some brow pencils come with dual functions while some don’t but that doesn’t mean that if you forgot your lip liner that your brow pencil cannot suffice.
5. MATTE BROWN EYESHADOW FOR CONTOUR POWDER
Yep! its makeup, that its labelled eyeshadow doesn’t mean it should be only for the eyes. When you want to travel light this could work or you have a tight budget this too can work for you till you can afford to purchase a contour powder. Or if you are just starting out with the contour game you can practice with this hack till you get comfortable then you can go ahead and purchase a contour kit or palette.
6. WINGLINER STARTER KIT
I know you are wondering why I named this hack a starter kit. Well, let me share an experience with you. When I was still starting out with makeup, I had a really hard time getting my eyeliner to be straight, talkless of being winged.
So, I resorted to using my black eye pencil which was straight but blurry, meanwhile, the liquid eyeliner/ gel eyeliner was very dark and sharp. So I thought to myself, what if I join the two? And that was how this hack was invented!
What I do is line my upper eyelid with an eye pencil first, wing it. Then, proceed to retrace it with a gel/liquid eyeliner and sharpen the wing with the liquid/ gel eyeliner.
I hope you learned one or two new makeup hacks that you will incorporate into your beauty routine?
