30 Makeup Hacks

Welcome back! Today I decided that I would share out some interesting makeup hacks that maybe you girls should try out.

1. Turn eyeliner pencil into gel

This will make eyeliner easier to apply because it makes it softer. Simply place the tip of the eyeliner pencil over a flame for a few seconds. Wait about 15 seconds for it to cool down and then apply.

2. Check your makeup under different light

You may not have the best light when you are applying makeup. When you get into your car, check your makeup before going anywhere. The bright outside light will help you see any spots that you may have missed.

3. Remove glitter nail polish easily

Skip the base coat and use white glue (Elmer´s glue works well) instead. Follow with coats of your favorite glitter polish. When you are ready to remove the polish, it will peel right off.

4. Skip the clear base coat

Use a coat of white nail polish instead of a base coat. This will make your nail color stand out more. It will still protect your nails from becoming stained by colored polishes.

5. Make your eyes look wider

Sweep your mascara towards your nose instead of upwards. This will help make the lashes look fuller. It will also help to make your eyes look bigger.

6. Proper perfume application

Don´t spray yourself with perfume. You will smell like a perfume factory at first, then it will wear off and you won´t smell anything. Instead, apply it to your pulse points.

7. Get more out of liquid makeup

Don´t throw away makeup in tubes just because it seems like they are empty. Cut them open and scoop the makeup into plastic pots. This is a great way to save money on makeup.

8. Get more mineral makeup

Just because it seems like you can´t get any more out of your mineral makeup, it does not mean that you need to buy more. Simply use a penny to remove the bottom part of the container. You will see that there is still a lot of makeup left underneath.

9. Make eye shadow stand out with white eyeliner

If you really want your eye shadow color to pop, use this trick. Apply white eyeliner all over your eyelid. Then apply your favorite eye shadow. The white will help to intensify the color.

10. Winged eyeliner with just a pencil

Draw the cat eye with the eyeliner. Then, fill in the open space with liner. You will have the perfect wing every time.

11. Achieve perfect winged eyeliner with a spoon

Picture from Lifehack

To get that winged effect everyone loves so much, you only need one common household item: a spoon. Start your eyeliner as you would for a cat eye look, press the round side of the spoon against your eyelid, and move the spoon outwards to create the winged effect.

12. Reuse mascara brushes

Sometimes you get a mascara brush you really like. You do not have to throw it away when the mascara is gone. Clean it off and use it with other types of mascara.

13. Easy smoky eye makeup

With your eyeliner, draw a slanted hashtag at the outer corner of each eye. Blend it in with the rest of your eye makeup. You get that smoky look without a lot of work.

14. Easy eyelash glue application

Applying eyelash glue can be so tricky. Make it easier by putting the glue on a bobby pin. Apply the glue with the tip of the bobby pin for a more even and quicker application.

15. Make lipstick stay on longer

This old trick really works. Put on a coat of lipstick, then lay a tissue across your lips. Dust translucent powder on to make the color set so it stays on longer.

16. Make your own lip gloss

Do not throw away your broken eye shadows. Instead, turn them into lip gloss. Crush the eye shadow into powder, then mix it with petroleum jelly to make any color lip gloss you like.

17. Create natural contouring

It can be difficult to figure out where to put blush or bronzer for contouring. The easy way is to use your eyeliner pencil, or even a makeup brush handle. Place the straight edge directly below your cheekbone to get the right angle.

18. Create a perfect cupid´s bow

Picture from Lifehack

Use your lip liner (same shade as your lipstick) to draw an ¨X¨ on your upper lip. Apply your lipstick, using the ¨X¨ as a guide. You will have the perfect pout.

19. Cover up puffy eyes and dark circles

Picture from Lifehack

Forget about dotting your concealer. Instead, apply it in a triangle shape, with the base at your lash line and the tip at the bottom of your cheek. This will hide the redness beneath the eyes and brighten up your whole face.

20. Use gel eyebrow pencil for contouring

Picture from Lifehack

Mark the areas to contour with the dark-colored gel eyebrow pencil. You can easily smudge and blend this makeup for perfect contouring. Finish the look with an all-over cream highlighter on your cheekbones, the center of your forehead, and the cupid´s bow.

21. No more lipstick on your teeth

Picture from Lifehack

After applying your lipstick, put your finger in your mouth. Close your lips around your finger, then pull your finger out. The excess lipstick will get on your finger and not on your teeth.

22. No more mascara on upper eyelids

Picture from Lifehack

Use a spoon for this hack. Hold the round part against your upper eyelids while applying mascara. The excess mascara will go onto the spoon and not on your eyelids.

23. Remoisturize mascara

Picture from Lifehack

Do not throw away mascara just because it has dried up. Instead, add a few drops of saline solution. This will it moist and it will work as well as it did when you first bought it.

24. Curl your lashes faster

Picture from Lifehack

Use your hairdryer to heat your eyelash curler. Let it cool a bit, then use as you normally would. The heat will set the curl so it lasts longer.

25. Use an unusual item for blotting

Picture from Lifehack

Toilet seat covers are ideal for blotting makeup. They are made from similar materials as blotting papers. So, if you are out of blotting papers, reach for a toilet seat cover to blot away excess skin oils.

26. Plump up your lashes

Picture from Lifehack

Do not bother with expensive lash-pumping mascaras. Instead, dust some translucent powder on your lashes between coats. This will make your lashes look much fuller.

27. Get rid of split ends

Picture from Lifehack

If you have split ends, but are not ready for a trim, try this hack. Twist sections of your hair together. Then, trim the little pieces that are sticking out to eliminate slit ends.

28. Apply dry shampoo at night

Picture from Lifehack

Use dry shampoo just before going to bed. As you move around in your sleep, the shampoo will really get worked into the hair. You will wake up with loads of volume and body.

29. Fix french manicures with a rubber band

Picture from Lifehack

This is so easy and saves you from having to go back to your manicurist. Wrap a rubber band around your finger so it lies straight across the nail. Then, use some polish to fix the part of the nail that is sticking out at the top.

30. Eliminate the frizzies

Picture from Lifehack

Forget the towel for drying your hair. Use an old tee shirt instead. Unlike towels, tee shirts will not create friction. You will have soft curls instead of frizz.

This is are the 30 makeup hacks. I found some of these interesting. This is it for today. Enjoy the rest of your day. Until next time, bye!
