“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful”- Sophia Loren
Here’s a list of life-changing beauty hacks every girl should know about.
Turn Eye-liner Pencil Into Gel
This will make eyeliner easier to apply because it makes it softer. Simply place the tip of the eyeliner pencil over a flame for one second. Wait about 15 seconds for it to cool down, and apply.
Easy Smoky Eye Makeup
With your eyeliner, draw a slanted hashtag at the outer corner of each eye. Blend it in with the rest of your eye makeup. You get that smoky look without a lot of work.
Make Your Own Lip Gloss
Don’t throw away your broken eye shadows. Instead, turn them into lip gloss. Crush the eye shadow into powder, then mix with petroleum jelly to make any color lip gloss you like.
Spritz Your Perfume in These Strategic Places to Make It Last All Day
When it comes to perfume, it’s all about location—and we’re not just talking about a spritz around the neck and on our clothes. But wait, your hair and behind your knees?
Zap Frizz with a Bonnet Dryer
A happy medium between the vintage and state-of-the-art salon hair dryers comes in the form of a bonnet-style attachment, like the one being used on Lady Gaga. It may look funny, but it produces the same, evenly-distributed heat. Plus, it’s hands-free and portable. Perfect.
Master the Perfect Pimple Coverage
Layer foundation, concealer, and setting powder to ensure the blemish is completely covered and the product won’t budge.
Use a Pencil to Find Your Natural Brow Tail
Overextending the tail of your brows can create a droopy effect, drawing your face down. Your eyebrows naturally stop at a place that lifts your face up and out, which is what you want to maintain.To figure out where the tail of your brow needs to end, hold a brow pencil diagonally at your nostril and line it up with the side of your eye. Where the pencil hits your brow bone is where the end of your eyebrow should end (or can be extended to) without it looking unnatural.
Hit your eye lash curler with a hair dryer to heat it up, so your lashes curl easier
Blowing hot air on your eyelash curler will help your lashes curl easier and stay curled longer; it works the same way heat changes the pattern of your hair and holds a curl with a curling iron. To do it, hit the lash curler with your blow dryer until it heats up, wait until it cools slightly but is still warm (you want to be sure not to burn your eyelid), and then clamp down on your lashes to curl them.
Perfect your Cupid’s bow by drawing an “X” on your upper lip first as a guideline
To make the Cupid’s bow part of your pout look perfect, the easiest and quickest way is to take a lip liner in the same shade as your lipstick and create an “X” at your Cupid’s bow. Then, apply your lipstick as you normally would and voil!
Get Fuller Lips with Eye Shadow
Pale, frosted eye shadow is the perfect choice if you want fuller, pouter lips. Just apply your lip color as normal and then go over it with a frosted eye shadow. The frost is a bit thicker in eye shadow so it will give your lips a luscious full look when you just dab it on over your lipstick.
