Makeup hacks every woman should know

Take a look at your makeup collection and think of all the masterpieces you can create with it. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or a pro at makeup, tips and hacks always come in handy.

MAKE SURE YOUR PRIMER COMPLEMENTS YOUR FOUNDATION

Whether oil or water, your primer and foundation should share the same base; otherwise, they will repel each other or just slide off your face, making it difficult to blend.

AVOID PEACH FUZZ

Always apply foundation using downward strokes. Most of us have a thin layer of hair on our face, and applying foundation in an upward stroke will make the hair strands stand out. Looking fresh and pink like a peach may be your goal, but highlighting your peach fuzz definitely shouldn’t be.

BE CAREFUL WITH SHIMMERY BLUSHES

It is tricky to pull off a shimmery blush perfectly. In fact, it is a good idea to skip shimmery blushes altogether if you have large pores, pimples or other symptoms of troubled skin.

GO NATURAL WITH TIGHTLINING

Try tightlining for the perfect no makeup look. Instead of putting the eyeliner on the lashline, apply it beneath the line. Make sure you use a waterproof variant for this one.

USE A SHADOW TO LOCK IT IN

Use an eye shadow of the same shade as the eyeliner to set the liner in place.

PREVENTION FROM SMUDGING

When it comes to smudge prevention, kajal is not the easiest product to work with. However, to ensure your kajal stays put for hours, simply dab some eyeshadow over it once you are done. You can also use an eyeliner. Simply draw a line with the liner over your kajal. It will lock the kajal in place and also look super neat.

THE THUMB RULE

Getting lipstick on your teeth is surely not a look you were aiming for, but it happens more often than we care to admit. In order to avoid it, put your thumb inside your lips, pucker up, and pull the thumb out.

SHARING IS NOT CARING

It is not hygienic to share makeup items, even with your closest friends. There is a huge chance of infection spreading. Especially refrain from sharing eye and lip products.
