Makeup tips and tricks to live by
Grab a spoon
There’s nothing more annoying than getting mascara marks on your upper eyelid just before you need to rush out the door. Grab yourself a teaspoon and hold it behind your lashes and your lid as you apply to easily avoid this makeup no-no. But don’t put the spoon away just yet! It’s also the perfect tool to use to get that flawless winged eyeliner look. Simply place the spoon handle against your cheek and follow it to ensure the straightest, steadiest line possible.
Contouring can really make your best features POP. But it takes forever, right? Well, not if you do it the ‘lazy girl’ way! Just dip an angled contouring brush into your matte bronzer (we love the allergy tested Maybelline Fit Me Bronzer that lasts up to six hours) and draw the number three on each side of your face (with the back end of the three facing your ears and the curve of the three underneath your cheekbones). Blend well and look how you glow!
Achieve that seemingly elusive smoky eye in minutes by drawing a hashtag on the outer corner of your eyelid using a black or brown eye pencil of your choice. Use a complementary eyeshadow and a brush to blend. The 10 shade L'Oréal Paris Color Riche La Palette Nude Intense has a few smoking hot options.And there you have it. Three beauty hacks that will simplify your makeup routine and your life. You’re welcome!
