- Fake Falsies With Baby Powder
After you’ve curled your eyelashes and applied one coat of mascara, dip a clean mascara wand or cotton swab into some baby powder and sweep it along the underside of your lashes. Then, apply another coat. The mascara adheres to the baby powder, creating dark fibers that make your lashes look longer and fuller – without the falsies.
- Dry Shampoo Technique
Dry shampoo is practically a revelation in the beauty sphere. It’s my go-to strategy when I’m short on time and can’t wash and blow dry my hair. However, while it’s a miraculous addition to any bathroom cupboard, using it improperly and not giving it enough time to work can leave you with white spots or still-oily locks.
Dry shampoo is essentially a fine aerosol powder that, when applied to roots, absorbs extra oil and leaves a fresh scent, mimicking the effects of traditional washing. While I prefer a commercial dry shampoo, blondes can make do with cornstarch. It has the same absorbent effect and blends well with blonde coloring.
I like to apply it heavily on my roots while my hair is loose and work it in with my fingers, as one would a typical shampoo. Then, give it 5 to 10 minutes to absorb your excess oil. This is an ideal time to hop in the shower – just tie your hair up in a loose bun. After that, you can brush your hair out and it should look clean and shiny without any white residue.
- Shaving Cream Technique
Running out of shaving cream? Use hair conditioner or coconut oil in its place. Coconut oil also works as a great, natural makeup remover!
- 4.Having a battle with fly-away hair?
For fine hair, spray a little hairspray on a toothbrush (one you don’t use to brush your teeth, of course!) to tame fly-aways along the hair line. For coarse or thick hair, spray hairspray directly on the fly-aways and smooth it with a toothbrush.
- Exfoliating Lips
Lipstick over soft, smooth lips looks lovely. Lipstick over chapped, flaky lips? Not so great. Unfortunately, because lips are made up of thin skin, they’re prone to drying out and flaking. That means your lip color usually looks messy, bleeds outside of the lip line, and doesn’t last as long.
Use a clean, soft toothbrush to banish flakes for good. Just wet it and run it over your lips in a circular motion, taking care to be gentle (there’s no need to scrub). Then, make sure to moisturize well with a quality lip balm. Do this once a week and you never have to deal with flaky lips again.
- Pin Staying Power
Make sure your pins have real staying power by laying them out onto a paper towel before you start pinning. Spray them all with a generous coat of firm-hold hairspray and allow them to dry. Then, when you use them for your style, flip them and make sure the wavy side is the one closest to your scalp. They’ll be budge-proof until you’re ready to take them out.
- No Time To Do Makeup?
If you’re short on time or beauty supplies, use lipstick to add some color to your eyes, lips and cheeks. Just blend it in so the glow is subtle and you are out to go!
- Perfect Smoky Eyeliner
If your eyeliner doesn’t cooperate with that, try heating it up to loosen the pigment a bit. Just grab a lighter and hold it to the tip of your eyeliner for one or two seconds. Then, let it cool for 15 seconds before applying and smudging it with a brush or your finger.
The traditional smoky eye is black or gray, but that can be a bit much for a daily get-up. When wearing it in the daytime, using a color can look less dramatic. If you have brown eyes, try a navy pencil and shadow. For blue and green eyes, plum really makes the color pop.
- Multi-Tasking : Air- Dry Your Hair While Doing Your Own Things
When you get ready in the mornings, do everything else in your routine before drying your hair. Letting it air dry for a while will speed up the blow drying process!
- The Foundation Brush
Liquid foundations are usually applied in one of two ways: with the fingers or with a sponge. However, a third technique – and possibly the best – is to apply it with a stipple brush, a round brush with flat bristles. Fingers don’t always blend well, and sponges soak up plenty of your precious product – both problems you avoid with the stipple brush.
Just dot your foundation on your face, use the brush to press it into your pores, and then sweep to blend. It gives you a nearly perfect airbrush finish with minimal product. I picked up a stipple brush from E.L.F. for about $3 – a steal, considering how much I use it.
