Top 6 Makeup Hacks That You Wish You Knew
You don’t have to spend hours in front of a mirror to get your makeup perfect. There’s a wealth of beauty secrets just waiting to be used (and psst… we’re gonna give them to you.) Little tricks can you save you loads of time. Here are our top 6 makeup hacks that will change your life.
1. Turn Eyeliner Pencil Into Gel
This will make eyeliner easier to apply because it makes it softer. Grab a lighter (or some safe flame source) and place the tip of the eyeliner over it for about one second. Wait about 15 seconds for it to cool down before applying, and it should go on like butter!
2. Get More Out of Liquid Makeup
Don’t throw away makeup in tubes just because they seem empty. Cut them open and using a small spoon, scoop the makeup into plastic pots (these can be found anywhere at retail stores like Kmart or even $2 shops). This is a great way to save money on makeup and reduces so much waste – ah, we love sustainability.
3. Make Lipstick Stay On Longer
This old trick really works. No one likes “16-hour wear” lippie that is really just “until you eat food” lipstick that will disappear once you start eating. To combat this, put on a coat of lipstick, then lay a tissue over your lips. Dust translucent powder on to make the colour set so it stays on longer – it’s that easy!
4. Apply Dry Shampoo at Night
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 (and some awesome smelling hair!)
5. Fix French Manicures with a Rubber Band
Save yourself a trip back to the manicurist with this hot tip. 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 sticks out from the top and hey presto! A French tip that’s good as new (for free!)
6. Make Your Lashes stand out from the rest
Keep your lashes, looking lush and longer than ever. Grab yourself a pair of unique Nicola Cosmetic lashes, to crank your looks up to 100. It’s amazing how effective a couple of quality lashes can be to elevate your look, especially compared to the hassle of mascara. With over 6 different styles, this hack will have everyone turning heads.
