Every woman uses makeup in some way, shape or form. Some don’t leave their home without it. Some feel it’s a waste of time. But nonetheless all of them either feel like putting it on at some point or another, or they have to — either as a work requirement or on a special occasion.
Here’s 10 tips and tricks that anyone will find useful, even if you hate using makeup.
Use the concealer the right way.
Use eyelash curlers and a soft eyelash pencil: draw a straight line along the top metal strip, then use the tongs by gently pressing them into the eyelid fold for about 30 seconds — voila, the eyelash contour is ready!
If you don’t have time for a full makeover, using an eyebrow pencil can be enough to drastically change the way you look.
15 seconds over a lighter will easily revitalize even a completely ancient pencil.
Use your credit card to make a straight line for the “feline” look.
A cotton swab and foundation cream will help salvage smudged lines.
Want to get rid of the bags under your eyes? Keep your cream in the fridge.
Use a credit card to apply mascara evenly.
Use a light-hued pencil to give your eyes a fresh and vivacious look.
For more saturated shadows, apply a light pencil underneath.
To cover up signs of insomnia, use a concealer around your eyes.
Use a light pencil for lip volume.
Never forget that makeup should be appropriate for the occasion and emphasize your strengths. Great makeup is always all about subtlety. Good luck!
