40+ Awesome Makeup Hacks Every Girl Should Know
Every girl needs some cheats to help her look her best and stay beautiful. Here are some great hacks to get you looking and feeling fantastic!
Lip Makeup Hacks
– Place a folded tissue over your lips and dust them with a little translucent powder to make your lipstick last all day
– For a more appealing effect, outline your your lips outside of their natural line. Just make sure it’s only slightly outside your natural line though, because overdoing it could make you look like a clown.
– Get the 3-D Lip Effect – use your finger to apply just a little eyeshadow or frosted blush to the top line and center of the bottom lip – blend gently and voila!
– Keep your lips soft and flake free to enhance your lipstick. Use a little moisturizing balm and brush them gently with a toothbrush.
-Steer clear of high gloss lip looks. They require constant reapplication and you’ll need to work hard to keep your lipstick on.
– Try a lip stain crayon, they glide on easy, won’t give you clown face, and generally don’t require a mirror to give you a polished look. These crayons also have great staying power.
– Did your favorite lipstick get crushed or melted? Pop it into an old contact lenses case or get a small pillbox from the pharmacy.
– You can get the perfect Cupid’s bow and here’s how: Just make an X. Using any lip pencil, draw a diagonal line that extends down from the highest point of your top lip. Do the same thing to the other side of your lip, and then continue your lip-lining as usual. Your pout will be beautifully defined.

Eye Makeup Hacks
– Doing cats eyes but need a clean line? Use a piece of sellotape or credit card for a perfect finish.
– Want to wear colorful shadows but they keep fading, try priming your eyes with a white eyeliner or eyeshadow; this will make your color stand out.
– Getting your highlights right can be a make or break with eye makeup. The lighter colors (whites, creams, and pearls) should be applied to the middle of the eye, the inner corners and just under your brow bone. Use your lightest colors first, and then move on to your darker shades.
– Nothing looks worse than clumpy lashes so avoid this by not adding more than two coats of mascara.
– If your mascara has become clumpy and you haven’t had time to replace it yet, you can add a few drops of eye drops to extend its use.
– Use that credit card again! Hold it behind your lashes while applying mascara to avoid getting mascara on your eye shadow.
– For the best results when using your lash curler, pinch at the very base of your lashes, then lift up the curler into an inverted position; this creates double the curl and lasts much longer!

– Always wear something over your clothes to prevent getting makeup on them during application. Try an old T-shirt or towel.
– Remember that concealer goes on after foundation and not before.
