Makeup Secret No.1: Naturally Plump Lips
Get ahead of the crazy, overdrawn lip trend and create naturally plump, soft
lips with the help of a sugar scrub. You can easily buy it in any drugstore
or create your own hydrating scrub by mixing a tablespoon of sugar, olive oil
and honey together. This quick makeup trick will ensure your lips are super soft without any dry parts and will help your lipstick glide on like butter and stay on all day. If you really would like to take it to the max and overdraw them a bit, use
a liquid or mousse lipstick and lip liner instead of a regular cream stick, so
you can overline it in a subtle way.
Makeup Secret No.2: Fixing Trick
Unfortunately, we all know the Cinderella-effect: after the makeup is perfectly done and we couldn’t be happier with it, it somehow magically disappears by the end of the night, leaving us looking like tired raccoons. If you are having an endless day and even the makeup setting spray isn’t enough, lock everything in place by applying a powder on top of your liquids and creams – set your liquid eyeliner with black eyeshadow, your highlighter with a peachy, shimmery powder and your foundation with a hint of translucent powder.
Makeup Secret No.3: Bright Eyes
This multifunctional beauty secret can help you making your eyes bigger and brighter, while being the perfect DIY “highlighter primer” for your cheekbones and brow bones. Grab a vibrant, white or silver eyeliner khol pencil and gently work it in the inner corners and lower lash lines of your eyes to get that “awake” effect, even if you have been pulling an all-nighter last night. Besides applying it on the eyes, pop a bit of product on your cheeks, brow bones, bridge and tip of the nose to brighten up your face and prep it for highlighting.
Makeup Secret No.4: Beauty Potion
This has to be one of my all-time favourite beauty tricks. If you have a medium to full coverage liquid foundations and its consistency is too thick, simply apply two drops of your favourite beauty oil in it while using it, mix it together and apply it to your face. The beauty oil will ensure the application will be flawless while giving your face a glow and keeping it hydrated.
Makeup Secret No.5: Focusing
Keeping the focus on either of your eyes or lips is definitely another key to success. I know, making the decision between a gorgeous, glittery smokey eye and a vampy, dark lip look is pretty difficult, but trust us – balancing your makeup and adding only one bold detail will be worth it at the end.
