Of course, not everyone has the beauty budget celebrities have. We may not have makeup artists and expensive beauty products that our favourite celebs use, but we can still look great. Looking good even when you are on a budget is why beauty hacks were invented.
Check out the beauty hacks that would keep you slaying all the time:
1. Pencil to Gel liner
If you cannot spend money on both gel eyeliners and the pencil kind, there is no need to worry. If you have the pencil liner, you can turn it into a gel liner in two steps. Place the tip of the pencil over a naked flame for some seconds. Pop into the refrigerator to cool and then apply. You would get the same finish as a gel liner.
2. Repairing Broken powders or eye shadows
Gather all of the broken pieces of makeup into its original container, and crush the whole thing up (even the parts that may not have broken)
Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol or cleanser to the compact, and let it soak in. Use your finger, the back of a spoon, or any other appropriate thing to rub and smooth down the makeup. (You can place transparent nylon over it to prevent it from staining your hands)
Once your makeup is all smooth again, all you have to do is wait, preferably overnight. The alcohol has to dry out, and once it does your makeup will be totally back to normal.
3. Long-lasting lipstick
To get your lipstick to last all day, there are two tricks to try. If you have a concealing foundation, apply that to your lips after lining them properly. Then apply lipstick. It will stay all day.
If you don’t have a concealing foundation, simply place some tissue over your already applied lipstick. Then apply some powder onto it and you get the exact result.
4. Use Mascara as Eye Liner
If you have run out of eyeliner and you are in a hurry, you can use your mascara instead. Just rub an eyeliner brush over the mascara brush and then line your eyes.
This works well if your mascara is the same color as the eyeliner that you typically use and even if it’s not, it will help you to get your eyes lined in a pinch. The mascara will wash off your eyelids just like it does off your lashes.
5. Get Longer, Fuller Lashes with Baby Powder
You don’t have to wear false lashes to get that long, full look. You can achieve the same look by simply dipping a cotton swab into baby powder and running it across your lashes after you have applied a coat of mascara.
Then just apply a second coat of mascara and it will adhere to the powder, giving your lashes a much longer and fuller look. You can also apply concealer on your lashes before using your mascara.
6. Business card method to apply perfect mascara
Who else hates it when you are applying mascara and it messes up your look by smudging on the eyelids. The solution: business cards. Place a business card behind your lashes before you apply mascara. It straightens your lashes and prevents mascara from smudging on your eyelids.
7. Drying nail polish
If you do your manicure or pedicure yourself, then drying it quickly can sometimes be very necessary.
The fastest way to dry your newly painted finger/toenails is to stick them into cold water for a few minutes.
