Makeup hacks are basically solutions derived out of necessity. These solutions are frugal and save a lot of money and time. A lot of us use hacks to get the perfect makeup looks. Sometimes we ask for recommendations from friends and sometimes we create our own hacks. Here are 10 makeup hacks that will save you time, energy and money.
Let’s discuss 10 amazing makeup hacks that are tried and tested and also are very useful.
10 Makeup Hacks every girl should know
- BROKEN LIPSTICK
This is one of the most common mishap that we encounter. But do not throw your lipstick into the bin. Instead take the left over lipstick in a tiny container and mix it with hot coconut oil. It then converts into a lipgloss and can be used without any hassle.
- EMPTY LIP GLOSS
Is your lip gloss almost over? But you see the sides of the bottle and notice that the inner side has lipgloss stuck to it. So dip your lip gloss bottle in hot water for 5 minutes. All of the stickiness on the sides will melt. This way you will still have a lot of gloss to use.
- OUT OF EYE PRIMER
You may run out of primer just before a party and wonder what to do? There is a trick for the eyes. You can use a transparent lip balm on the eyes so that your glittery eye shadow stays for a longer while. Makeup hacks also involve playing with your products a little so let’s just use this hack to our benefit.
- CLASSY OFF SHOULDER LOOK
If you are wearing an off shoulder, don’t forget to highlight your neck and collar bones using a highlighter. It makes the look very smooth, neat and shiny.
- MESSED UP NAILS
I think all of us have experienced this scenario where we apply our nailpolishes and for some reason it smudges and the OCD triggers. There is a simple solution for this. Dip your nails in water and clean it using a lemon. This way the nail polish coat will fade away but the colour will still be there. You can reapply the nailpolish very conveniently on that nail again.
- MAKE YOUR EYES LOOK WIDER
Did anyone tell you that you are applying the mascara wrong? Sweep the mascara towards your nose and not outwards. This makes your eyes look wider.
- PERFUME APPLICATION
Apply you perfume behind the ear, on the the wrist, base of the neck, on the elbow and also behind your knees. These are the pulse points where you should apply your perfume rather than sprinkling too much perfume and smelling like a perfume factory.
- MAKE YOUR EYE SHADOW BOLDER
If you really want your eye makeup to be funky, first apply a normal white eyeliner on your lid and then apply the eyeshadow on top. You can further highlight your eyeshadow with a white eyeliner too.
- MAKE YOUR LIPSTICK LAST LONGER
This is an old trick but still works. Apply your lipstick and then dab it with a tissue and dust some powder with a brush on top of the tissue. The colour becomes very bold, strong and lasts long.
