For days when you get so busy or just don’t have the time and energy to put into making up, here are some Fast and easy shortcuts to look amazing and have a flawless model-like look. These tips also come in handy when you run out of products or are on a budget or you just want the perfect look.
Looking good doesn’t come easy, but these hacks sure make it look like child’s play…
Make Your Own Bronzer
To make your bronzer, Combine 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 2 teaspoons of cornstarch/powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, and 1 teaspoon of cocoa powder until evenly mixed. Use a large makeup brush to lightly dust the mixture everywhere you want to glow.
Get A Fuller Pout
Make your lips look fuller by applying shimmery eye shadow in the center of your lower lip after applying your lip colour. The reflection of light at the center of the lips creates an illusion of a fuller pout. The powder alsohelps set your lip color.
Try Apple Cider Vinegar As Toner
Don’t skip on moisturizer just because you have oily skin. This will dry your skin out and make it produce more oil. Instead, try an apple cider vinegar and water mixture, or green tea as a toner (both balance your skin’s pH levels) before applying your moisturizer.
Turn Your Pencil Eyeliner Into A Gel Eyeliner
heat your pencil eyeliner over a lighter or matchstick for a 1 second, let it cool for about 15 seconds and voila! You have a gel eyeliner
Eliminate Permanent Sweat Stains
Squeeze lemon juice on sweat stains, leave for some minutes and wash to remove the stains completely.
Save your old mascara brush and use to apply eyebrow color
Line Your Eyes The Right Way To Prevent Smaller-Looking Eyes
Don’t apply black eyeliner all around your eye. This will make your eyes appear much smaller than they are. Line the top with black liner, the bottom with brown liner, and the waterline with nude liner to really open your eyes.

How To Apply Under-Eye Concealer
The most flattering way to apply concealer is to draw a triangle with the base under your eye and the point toward your cheek.
This shape not only conceals dark circles, but it also instantly creates the illusion that your face is lifted. Think of it as holding a flashlight against your cheek, shining the light right underneath your eye, and drawing the focus upward.
Use Mascara as Eye Liner
If you have run out of eye liner and you are in a hurry, you can use your mascara instead. Just rub an eye liner brush over the mascara brush and then line your eyes. This works well if your mascara is the same color as the eye liner that you typically use and even if it’s not, it will help you to get your eyes lined in a pinch. The mascara will wash off your eye lids just like it does off your lashes.
Test Foundation On Your Neck Not Your Face
The skin on your face, due to increased sun exposure or breakouts, isn’t the same color as the rest of your body. So, if you match your foundation to your cheek, you might end up with a shade that doesn’t match your neck and chest and doesn’t look natural. Instead, swipe three shades of foundation right below your jawline, blend them in, and whichever shade disappears is the one you should choose.
Use Baby Powder For Longer And Fuller Eyelashes
For fuller and longer eyelashes, dab on some baby powder in-between the first and second coat of mascara. Repeat this two to three times.
Get a Cupid’s Bow Shape with Lip Liner
To get fuller and more luscious lips, you simply have to learn how to properly apply lip liner. In order to get the Cupid’s Bow shape, you just need to mark an “X” in the center of your top lip, line the corners and then join everything together. Once you apply your lipstick, your lips will look much fuller.
To Close Up Your Pores and Make Your Makeup Last Longer
Rub an ice cube all over your face before you apply makeup.
Apply Vaseline on Your Pulse Points Before Spraying Your Perfume To Make The Scent Last Longer.
Since the ointment is occlusive, it will hold the fragrance on your skin longer than if you were to spray the perfume just onto your skin.
White Eye Shadow Makes Eyes Stand Out
White eye shadow is a great choice if you really want your eyes to stand out. You just have to layer your lid with white eye shadow and then add the colors that you want. The white will also keep those other colors from rubbing off before the end of the day and you can even add white to the top of the lid by the brow to really make your eyes pop.
Set Lipstick to Last
A sheet of tissue and some translucent powder is all you need to mattify and set your lipstick. After you have applied your chosen lip color, hold a tissue over your lips and dust just a bit of translucent powder over the tissue. This helps to set the lipstick so that it lasts longer.
Get Makeup Off Shirt Collars Easily
Sometimes when you are in a rush to get ready, you may accidentally get makeup on your shirt collar. Foundation can be particularly difficult to remove. Just add a bit of shaving cream and wipe that makeup away with a damp cloth. The shaving cream works perfectly, won’t harm your clothing and best of all, you won’t have to take the time to change before you leave.
