12 Intriguing Make Up Techniques Nobody Told You About! Content

1. Conceal dark circles and puffy eyes the right way
by creating a triangle with your cover-up.
2. Turn a pencil eyeliner into a gel formula with the help of a match or lighter. (Hold your eyeliner pencil under the flame for literally 1 second, and let it cool for about 12 seconds. Finally glide on your newly gel eyeliner for a smudgy more bold look!)
3. Hit your eyelash curler with a hair dryer to heat it up, so your lashes curl easier.
4. Use a spoon to create the perfect winged liner. (Holding the stem of a spoon against the outer corner of your eye, draw the straight line as the first step for your cat eye. Then, flip the spoon so it’s hugging your eyelid, and use the rounded outer edge to create a perfectly curved winged effect.)
5. Draw your cat eye first, and then fill in the open space for a perfect winged liner application every single time. (As seen)
6. Use that same spoon to avoid mascara marks on your upper eye lid. (Hold the spoon so it’s hugging your eyelid, and then apply your mascara. As you sweep the mascara wand against your lashes and back of the spoon, watch as the residue coats the back of the spoon rather than your skin.)
8. Apply eyelash glue to false lashes with the tip of a clean bobby pin.
10. Perfect your cupid’s bow by drawing an “X” on your upper lip first as a guideline.
11. For long-lasting lip color, put on your lipstick, lay a tissue over your mouth, and then dust translucent powder over it to set the color. (Believe it or not, this really holds lip stick for hours so disregard staining your lips with a lip stain!)
12. Blot your face in a pinch with a clean toilet seat cover. (Both blotting papers and toilet seat covers are made out of similar fabrics and will help soak up excess oil on your skin. So, if you’re in a pinch and headed to the bathroom to freshen up anyway, grab one of these covers and pat it over your skin to decrease any excess oil on your face.) *Toilet seat covers are mostly found in public restrooms*
