5 Life-Changing Beauty Hacks
Who doesn’t love a good beauty hack? At its best, a good beauty hack can save you time, money, or even open up your eyes to an entirely new (and better) way of doing things over in the beauty department!
Here are 5 simple life-changing beauty hacks that you should know about:
1. Achieve sharper brows with a cotton swab
We all love a well-defined brow. But surely we’ve all had those days where it just wasn’t meant to be. Here’s a trick to help you make the best out of your brow situation when nothing seems to be working!
After filling in your brows (whichever way you prefer to do them), dip a cotton swab into makeup remover or lotion. Swipe the cotton swab against the edges of your brows in a swift, brisk motion to clean them up and to sharpen up the edges. This is a great way to make sure both sides match!
2. Use your finger to apply concealer
Instead of using a brush to apply concealer, just do it with your fingers. Aside from saving you a couple of minutes in the morning, this also means that there’s one less brush to clean!
Ultimately, the main reason you should be doing this is because the warmth from your fingers will thin out the consistency of your concealer and up its blend-ability.
3. Prep your waterline with a cotton swab
Chances are there’s a very crucial prep step missing from your makeup routine! Before lining your eyes, gently roll a cotton swab over your waterline to ‘dry’ or ‘clean’ the area to achieve better results with your eyeliner application.
4. Layer your eyeliner
When lining your eyes, do you only stick to one formula? Well, you might want to think about investing in a couple of different eyeliner products.
The secret to a flawless eyeliner application is to use a pencil eyeliner to line your waterline and to fill in the gaps between your lashes with short dashes. Then use a liquid or gel eyeliner to complete the look!
5. Stack your false eyelashes for more drama
Need a pair of ultra-glam lashes?
Instead of running to the store to grab a more dramatic set of falsies, you can easily amp up the intensity with your lash situation by stacking two pairs of natural-looking lashes!
To make the transition look more natural, just cut the second pair of lashes in half and layer that one half over the outer 2/3 of your lash line.
