Guest Post | 5 Make-up Hacks That Will Make Your Life A Lot Easier!

Being a make-up artist and stylist myself, I have done make-up on millions of faces in all the years I’ve spent in this industry, and I have experience of putting on make-up on all skin types and face shapes. In all these years, I’ve learned a few tips and tricks and I would love to share them with you guys!

A Bright And Glowing Complexion:

The first step of your make-up routine would be achieving a radiant and glowing complexion, which is easily achieved by mixing your foundation with a moisturiser. This creates a satin-like finish over the skin when finally topped off with a highlighter. Another reason I opt for this hack is that diluted foundation has a lesser chance of becoming cakey and it melts very naturally into the skin. 

The Perfect Crease:

I love how with little experiments, you find that some products can end up serving more than one purpose. If you use a bit of bronzer in the base of your eye shadow on top of primer, you give the eye a good base to put eye shadow on. Similarly, if your eye shadow has turned out a bit darker than usual, you do not need to completely wipe it all off. Just dab a clean eye shadow brush in a bronzer and with light strokes blend it into your eye shadow to lighten it by one or two tones. This tip works like magic!

Perfectly Curled Lashes:

To get those amazing upward curled lashes, you must already be using a lash curler. What if I told you there’s a better way of using it? Grab your blow dryer and heat your lash curler with the hot air. Make sure it doesn’t get too hot, then curl your lashes and lock in mascara to get perfect and longer-lasting mascara. Lash curls stay in place for longer duration depending on what mascara you’re using, find yourself a mascara that's long-lasting with a great finish to pull off the perfectly curled lashes look. 

Matching Lip & Cheek:

I’m going to give you a compound hack for this one; tinting your cheeks and lips in matching hues gives a very vibrant, natural look especially if you’re using the shades of pink. To get this look, keep a lip stain with you. It defines and colours the lips boldly and you can simply rub some on your cheeks to get a rosy shade. Or, grab your blush and mix some of it in a clear scented lip balm to give your lips some colour. 

Translucent Powder:

This one product serves has a make-up setter, oil-control mechanism and a thickening agent. Once you’re done with your make-up, never forget to dust some translucent powder on your cheeks and the rest of face to set the make-up in. It gives a luxuriously matte texture to the skin. In between two coats of mascara, it serves as a lash thickener. If you apply a little translucent powder in between your layers of lipstick, it stays on for longer.

I hope these simple and universal make-up hacks will help you step up your make-up game. Stay beautiful!
