Makeup Tricks That No One Told You:
Hate getting mascara on your skin no matter how careful you are? Hold a plastic spoon under your lower lashes while you apply your mascara.
Use tape to create a straight line in your eye makeup. This is very helpful if you’re extending your makeup past your eyes for a cat eye look. The tape will only be on for a few seconds, so it shouldn’t hurt when you peel it off.
Highlight your eyes with white, pearl, or cream shadow. Apply it just under your eyebrow in the outer half, just under the arch. Also apply just a little bit in the corner of your eye near your nose. Apply the lighter color before darker colors so it blends well.
Line your waterline with a white eyeliner pencil. This helps your eyes look wider.
Extend the life of your clumpy mascara by adding a drop or two of Visine. Never, ever add water. This can introduce bacteria. Trust me, an eye infection is much worse than buying Visine or a new mascara!
Heated eyelash curlers are expensive. Heat yours with a hair dryer for 3 to 5 seconds. Be careful that you don’t get it too hot!
Apply foundation in downward strokes. You want to wash and apply moisturizer in an upward motion to go against gravity, but foundation is a little different. If you apply it upwards, it makes the teeny little hairs on our faces stand up and become more noticeable.
