Beauty Secrets You Never Knew About | Hacks that will Change Your Life!
The best kept beauty secrets have been locked up…until now! The time has finally come, and the vault is open! Get ready to enter and uncover some of the best beauty hacks from our secret beauty files.
Get Clump Free Lashes
Clumpy lashes are one of the most annoying makeup problems you likely have to deal with on a daily basis! It takes just the right wand, the right application technique, and the freshest mascara to get clump-free results! Amirite??! Well, girl, we’ve got your back! Now you can rest easy knowing you can achieve that perfect, clump-free look every time, no matter what!!!
First things first, you want to choose a lengthening formula rather than a volumizing one. The volumizing mascaras tend to be more sticky and create a more clumpy look. Next, you want to wiggle your mascara wand from side-to-side as you’re stroking upwards. Finally, to remove any remaining clumps, use a clean spooly brush and run it through your lashes. The dried up mascara clumps should fall right out.
Make Your Lashes Appear Voluminous
Skip the fancy lash primers and voluminous mascara formulas! You can achieve that voluminous lash look using a translucent powder between each layer of mascara.
Simply dust some translucent powder onto your lashes using a powder brush right after applying your first layer of mascara. The powder will adhere to your lashes making them appear thicker. Finish off by applying another layer of mascara over top. You may repeat this process until you’ve achieved your desired look!
Curl Your Lashes Faster
Yes, lash curlers are nothing new, however this beauty hack will help you achieve that desired curl faster and help it last longer!
To do this, heat up your lash curler using your blow dryer. Make sure to let the curler cool down slightly so you don’t end up burning your skin!
Then curl your lashes as per usual. The heat is the secret to getting that quick curl – just think, same idea as a hair curler, but for your eyes!
Revive Old Mascara
If you’ve got an old mascara that you want to use up entirely, but it’s starting to look a lil’ crusty, add a few drops of saline solution into the tube to bring it back to life! You should get a couple extra uses out of it.
Grow Thicker Brows
If your brows are sparse, nourish them with your favorite facial oil. Apply a couple drops of oil onto a brow comb and brush into your brows.
The oil treatment will strengthen your hair follicles and help the hair grow thicker and faster.
Make Your Brow Color Last Longer!
Before filling in your brows, make sure you take your primer all the way into your brows. This will make the makeup stay put for a longer-lasting brow.
Brighten Up Your Eyes
If you didn’t get much sleep last night or you’re looking a little haggard, brighten up your eye area using a white shimmery eye shadow on the inside corners of your eyes and along your brow bone.
Make Your Eye Shadow Appear More Vibrant
Some eye shadows just don’t look as pigmented on your skin as they do on the pallet. To make your eye shadow color look more saturated, apply white eye liner across your eye lid first. This will make colors pop and appear more vibrant!
Prevent Your Lipstick from Bleeding
When you wear lipstick all day long, it can start to bleed into fine lines and wrinkles. To prevent this from occurring, this neat little hack will be a life saver! Before putting on lipstick, start by applying a thin concealer base. This will help your lipstick stay put and prevent it from bleeding.
Create the Illusion of a Fuller Lip
If you want to have full lips without lip filler, consider this option! Line your lips using a nude liner and accentuate your cupid’s bow. Also, before applying lipstick, dab concealer around your lips. This will make your lips pop and appear bigger.
Get a Dewy Finish
When applying liquid foundation, first apply a few drops of facial oil onto your brush. The oil will create a dewy finish and prevent your foundation from appearing dry and cakey.
Blot Oily Skin on the Fly
If you’re on the go and notice you have areas of oily skin on your face, don’t worry! Brown napkins like the ones you find at Starbucks are great at soaking up excess oils from your skin.
Make Your Hair Appear Thicker
If your hair is falling out or your hair is thin and your scalp is really noticeable, here’s a quick and easy trick to give the illusion of thicker hair! Simply find an eye shadow that’s a similar shade to your hair. Take a brush and dust some shadow along your hairline and where your hair is parted. This will camouflage any sparse areas and make your hair appear thicker. Easy fix!
Make Your Nail Polish Dry Faster!
If you’re like most girls, you probably don’t have time to wait around for nail polish to dry. To make your polish dry faster and get you out the door faster, try this quick trick. Dip your hands into a bowl of ice water for a minute or so. The polish will set and you’ll be on your way!
Okay, now that you’ve got the 411 on all things beauty, it’s time to share the knowledge with your girlfriends!
