Here are every girl’s essential 6 makeup hacks for everyday makeup application. Grab your makeup bag, and let’s glam! By Makeup artist Jelan Nasr
1. Lighter coverage
During cold days, our skin tends to get dry, it can be tough to get a smoother complexion while applying foundation. You can add one or two drops of argan oil (only argan oil) before applying your foundation for a smoother application and a natural glow.
2. Create your own glitter liner
You only need two products, eyelash glue, and the glitter color of your choice. Line your eyes with eyelash glue, then with a small angled brush, press the glitter on top and start tapping until you cover the glue line. It’s that simple! makeup hacks
3. Get that sultry smokey eye
You are going to take a black or brown pencil liner. Line the pencil along your lash line then, take a small pointed brush and smudge it with a brown eye shadow to create a smokey effect. Put on your mascara, and voila! You are ready to hit the town.
4. Naturally lifted cheekbones
Start by finding the hollows of your cheekbone. Then with a deep nude contour powder apply it inwards towards your face. The trick is to apply a peachy blush above your contour area to create a lifting effect. Add your highlighter on the high points, instant lifting!
5. Soft, luscious, exfoliated lips
Make a gentle lip scrub using brown cane sugar and honey, and use once a week only. Exfoliating helps buff away any dry skin sitting on your lips, leaving you with a smoother, softer canvas for your lipstick. makeup hacks
6. Melt your pencil liner to help it glide
Creamy makeup products blend better when they’re warmed up. If your kohl eyeliner skips or tugs on your eyelid, or takes multiple coats for a decent color payoff, melt it down slightly before you start applying it. makeup hacks
Hold the tip of your kohl liner over the flame of a lighter until it softens, let it cool for a second then swatch it on your hand to make sure it is not too hot or melted.
