We all know that nowadays working “smart” has become much more important than working “hard”. It simply means that we all need to learn to be more efficient, organized and confident apart from working hard at our workplaces. The exact same mantra can be applied to our beauty routines as well! How many times do you have to rush to work and put on your makeup in the bathroom 10 minutes after you leave for work? These are some secret beauty hacks you can use to get ready or makeup fast for a product or a feature you don’t own. Read on to know more about these fast tips!
1. Bad color payoff on your new eyeshadow?
There’s a solution without throwing away your eyeshadow! This also applies to nail polish. Well, the next time you have to apply eyeshadow, use a white blend-able eye pencil all over your lids before applying eyeshadow. It intensifies the color and makes the color of your eyeshadow pop! Do the same for your nails, applying a coat of white nail polish before applying the original nail polish.
2. Can’t take off that gorgeous but gritty glitter nail polish?
We all have faced this at one time or another, especially now that some brands of luxurious but shiny nail polish are hard to remove. Apply a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover to your nails. Wrap your fingers in aluminum foil and the shine will disappear within minutes. Or, use a lightweight glue as your base coat and then apply glitter polish. When you want to remove it, gently peel off the glue bit.
3. Can’t Find Your Volumizing Mascara?
If you need volume for your eyelashes at the last minute, here’s an easy hack to use. Take the loose powder that you usually use for your face. Apply it on your lids lightly with your eyes closed and apply a normal kajal. Then use a piece of cotton wool, focus on the lash tips and apply a little more powder and another coat of mascara. This will create volume on your eyelashes.
4. Does the lipstick remain faded?
Blot your lips with a powder blush in a similar shade. It sets your lipstick and it helps to avoid those unsightly color bleeds, and plus the color will be the same as your lipstick, so it’s way more foolproof than using powder to blot your lips .
5. Want matte lips instantly?
Switch any normal lipstick to a matte formula. Apply your lipstick, then cover your lips with a tissue. Apply powder all over the tissue and remove. The powder goes finer to the tissue and gives you a matte look!
6. Need to play your eyes?
Use some bronzer on the crease of your eyes, which can either be shimmery or matte. It gives you a beautiful makeup but not over the top look that you can wear to work as well.
7. Want to make lips fuller?
Apply gloss under your lips to add depth. Another hack is to lightly dab some shimmery eyeshadow on your lower lip, to create the illusion of plump, healthy lips.
