The Power of Makeup: 10 Professional Tips and Tricks
Enhance your eyelash routine with a simple hack – use a plastic spoon to brush your eyelashes more easily. Gently place the spoon under your eye and apply mascara to your lower lashes with ease.
Eyeliner with tape
Get a perfectly even eyeliner application by using a strip of tape as a guide. Stick the tape at the end of your eye and draw your eyeliner along the edge. For best results, use paper tape and test its stickiness on your hand before applying it to your face.
Fixing dry mascara
Making your mascara more manageable is as easy as adding a drop of eye drops, contact lens solution, baby oil, or coconut oil to the tube. This will revive dry mascara and make it easier to apply.
Make eyes look bigger
If you want to make your eyes appear bigger and more alert, try using a white pencil to paint your lower lashes. This simple trick creates the illusion of larger, more awake eyes.
Tips for curling eyelashes
Get perfectly curled lashes in seconds by using an eyelash curler. After curling your lashes as usual, flip the curler and curl again for extra length and curl.
To make your lipstick last longer, apply it as usual and then press a piece of tissue paper onto your lips. Follow up with a light dusting of powder for a matte finish and extended wear.
For precise concealer application, use an eyeliner brush to blend and cover acne or acne scars. This technique allows for more accuracy and natural-looking coverage.
Don’t toss out your expired mascara wand! Clean it and repurpose it as a brow brush for perfectly groomed eyebrows.
Warm up eyelash curler
For long-lasting curled lashes, warm up your eyelash curler with a hairdryer for 5 to 7 seconds. The heat will help lock in the curl and keep your lashes looking beautiful all day.
When to replace
Remember to regularly replace your makeup tools to maintain healthy skin and eyes. Mascara should be replaced every 3 to 4 months, powder every 12 to 18 months. Nail polish should be discarded after 2 years of use, and lipsticks after 1 year to 18 months. Foundation should be replaced every 6 months to a year, and eyeliner pencil after 18 months to 2 years of use.
