9 Beauty Hacks Every Woman Must Know


The Makeup industry has evolved a lot in the past few years, and standards of makeup perfection are very high. There are various makeup products available in the market, starting from eyelash curlers to highlighters, which have made makeup choice even complex.

Makeup is an art that one can learn.

But not everyone has the understanding of right makeup choices, applying techniques and makeover choices.

So, I am here with some simple makeup tricks and hacks that will make your life easier.

Transform Liner:

There is a variety of liners available in the market. Basically, liners are divided into three categories:

pencil liner

gel liner

liquid liner.

The pencil liner works best for the beginners because of its good grip.

However, liquid liners are more for professional use for thin, winged, sleek looks, whereas gel liners are the darkest and highly pigmented liners. I love the result of gel liners the most but gel liners are typically available in very few colours. To go crazy with different colours and texture of gel liner. I transform my coloured pencil liner into gel liner by simply introducing its tip to the flame for a few seconds. Let it cool, apply and see the change in consistency of the product in front of your eyes.

Make your Eyeshadow Shade Pop:

Many of us use primer and concealers to make our eyeshadow stay for a longer time period and to make its colour pop out. But what if you missed out your concealer? Well, don’t worry – the next hack is for you!

Do you have a white eyeliner? Yes. Great!

White eyeliner is a versatile product that can help you resolve many makeup problems. Well in this situation you can use your white eyeliner to cover your eyelid and blend a little. The opaque consistency of the white eyeliner will help sheer or less pigmented eyeshadow look more colourful on the eyelid. In addition to this, due to its high consistency it provides eyeshadow a base to stick properly. Know more about white eyeliner here.

Revive Your Eye Makeup:

Eye makeup products such as mascara or liner have a life of 6 months. But sometimes these products dry out really fast. Plumping mascara or liner tube is one of the reasons too. Well, to make them stay wet for longer, you can use a few drops of eye drops or saline solution instead of alcohol because they are friendlier to eyes. If you do not have eye drops we have another tip for you. Dip your mascara tube in a bowl filled with hot water for at least 10-15 minutes. This will also help you revive your dried mascara or liner. Find some amazing mascaras on this post.

Make your Customized Lipstick:

There are several makeup brands with numerous lipstick shades but there are times when you are not able to find perfect shade that you want or require. By using loose makeup colour pigments and Vaseline you can create your own lip colour. The benefit of this technique is you have control over the consistency of colour. Similarly, you can make tinted lip balms by replacing Vaseline with bees wax and coconut oil.

Avoid Peach Fuzz:

Always apply makeup with downward stroke because most of us have facial hairs and they usually grow downwards. Applying makeup with upward strokes will make your facial hairs standout.

Concealer:

Applying concealer with multiple strokes is not enough. If you apply your concealer in a triangular shape under your eyes, between your nose and cheek bones it will sculpt your face, blend well and less countering will be required. In addition to this, people who are suffering for breakouts can check concealers for covering pimples and acne scars here.

Two-in-one:

Well there are times when you fall short of makeup items and you think there is no way out. But let me tell you one tip that can save you when you do not have your liner with yourself. Take your liner brush and a mascara tube, open it and make sure that the wand contains enough product. Dab your liner brush on the wand and you are good to go.

Stay hydrated:

The simplest and easiest way to have younger looking skin is staying hydrated. Our body requires water to drain out toxins from our body, which not only cleanse our body from the inside but we can also see it’s reflection inside out.

Matte it:

Like your lipstick’s shade but do not want to go glossy? Turn your glossy lipstick into matte. Apply your lipstick and hold a tissue paper between your lips. It will soak any excessive moisture. Now take face powder and by the help of brush, apply a thin coat of powder on your lips. Do not apply too much and you have the matte lips in the same shade that you love.

Completely Cosmetics (Part 2) Lipsticks

Lipsticks add a sheer touch by setting the tone and adding colour to the face. What colour you wear is vital and is key, for when you are either out shopping or dining out at a restaurant. You can choose so many different types of lipsticks, from L’Oreal, to Revlon, Mary Kay, Chanel, MAC, Sephora, Charlotte Tilbury, the list is endless.

I love to wear pinky tones, because I am really girly-girl, I could have pink everything but my room’s not pink! I am just definite at wearing pink lipstick, as it shows my personality. I hardly wear red, only for really special occasions.

The most luminous lipstick I love is the Queen Lipstick / Matte Revolution. It gives a full plump look and the colour is pretty and bright. It has a great matte lip effect, and is totally flattering.

Completely Cosmetics (Part 1) Finding the right foundation

When choosing a foundation you need to take into consideration your skin type and shades available. The colour you choose is VERY important. ALWAYS make sure that you test the foundation in natural light. When in a store or pharmacy the bright lights may not show the colour right.

If you have oily skin, it is best to use OIL-FREE foundations, such as:

Revlon’s New Complexion Oil Free

revlon-foundation

The light weight formula gives you a perfectly smooth, even tones skin.

I love using MAC STUDIO FIX which I always buy from either the Myer or David Jones department store. It gives a total matte finish, which gives a flattering, natural look, and is $50.

Inspirational Blog Book Idea


    What do I LOVE to do? What are my passions?

What leads me to fulfilment?

These are questions I ALWAYS ask myself. I have always been the type to think about things that leave me feeling satisfied in life, and have a sense of achievement or excellency.

I want to create a life filled with LOTS of passion!!! Where I can talk to people about what I love to do! 

I have many first loves! Coffee, shopping & reading – which are probably the main three things of my life! And now! Writing! I had my first EVER article published in the local community paper, The Pheonix last Friday and bought it just today to see what it was like! 

   
I lived in Melbourne, Australia for 18 years of my life, so I have created my own sense of style, personality, and I loved my life when I was living there. Living in the suburb of Footscray, it was filled with diversity and I loved eating Chinese food mostly! 

Moving to Merriden in 2013 changed me. I had a massive culture shock and I honestly didn’t get used to it till now! TWO years later!!! 

I told a friend today that Merriden has changed me….. She responded with “HOW did it change you?” And I replied with this. 

“Very good question! Because big city girls CAN be quite superficial/fake…. Not all…. And I’m not saying I was like that, I just don’t find having the latest Burberry coat to the latest Gucci bag is as important as having family and friends around you!”

What do you think of this statement I made? Is my theory too harsh? If you’re a city girl, is there something in your heart that needs to change? Appreciate life a bit more? 

Maybe have a think about your soul…… 

I am loving a book I bought in Melbourne….. “Too beautiful” Beauty Tips for the Soul ❤️❤️❤️

    
It has so much TRUTH in it! And has beautiful quotes that make you reflect on life and what your soul needs to live a life of beauty. 

A beautiful soul is better than a beautiful face!

It has beautiful quotes such as this! 

   

Wisdom is better than pearls or gold. It is a quality that a lady needs to get through her day. Understanding is precious as well. Understanding people and what they go through in life is an amazing quality to have. 

Is wisdom something you want? 

Understanding?

I wanted these words to be a book as I hand wrote them, but I am thinking maybe one day I can create a “Blog Book”! Filled with quotes, writings, images and such in a book similar to “Love, Style, Life as I mentioned in Best Book Investment …. ❤️

I feel like, if I move back to Melbourne I will be HIT with inspiration because it is so full of fashion, great people, amazing art and culture and I can go to the L’Oreal Fashion Week which I totally miss! 

Melbourne IS Fashion. Collins street was my home….. And I worked on Queen Street when I was 18 in my first job as a Claims Assistant at Gallagher Bassett Services, after a year it didn’t work out, but I remember with my first pay I bought a CUE outfit! And I still have it to this day! Cue was my favourite brand for a VERY long time! I shopped there on Collins street everyday when I was 18-20 years of age! 

Being in Merriden it changed me because there is literally, only Target!!! It took me ages to adapt to just 1 to 3 shops! 

I shall leave you with another quote from the book, and have a think about what you can do to create a “beautiful soul”…..

Do you want to organise charity work? For example, I am currently looking at maybe hosting a morning tea with Cancer Council here in Merriden! 

Is there something you can involve yourself in to help out with your community? 

  
Kindness is also another beautiful quality to have a pleasing heart. 

Think about what you can do this week, where you can use wisdom or kindness! 

What can you do to free your soul?
