Most of us reach some points where we have to confront with different situations, some embarrassing, some of them would cost us too much, others take too much of our spare time so here are some simple, cheap and very efficient DIY beauty hacks that can save you from many uncomfortable situations that could ruin your day:
1. Keep Lipstick Off Teeth
One of the most embarrassing situations in life as a woman is to greet someone with a smile… and there it is, a red spot on you perfect white teeth. Avoiding this uncomfortable situation is even easier than applying the lipstick. All you have to do is, right after you finish applying your lipstick, just stick your finger in your mouth and pull it out. The excess lipstick will remain on your finger, wiping away any extra redness and leaving your teeth shiny and untouched by any spots.
2. Use Mascara as Eye Liner
What if you run out of money and mascara at the same time and you really want to go out on that date? Here is a simple solution, use your mascara as eye liner. Take an eye liner brush and rub it over the mascara brush. Then you can easily line your eyes, just as if you had your old eye liner back.
3. Apply Concealer in a Triangle Shape
Had a hard time sleeping last night because of studying, watching movies or talking on the phone? Just woke up with some unpleasing dark circles or bags under your eyes? The simplest solution is this easy technique that costs you nothing. On your usual concealer application, just change the way you do it. Instead of dotting on concealer in the pattern of your eyes, apply it in a triangle shape. Blend downward in the triangle shape an you’ll see how it will perfectly cover up those dark circles and bags, giving you the look that you want a whole day.
4. Make Your Own Gel Eyeliner
Maybe not everyone can afford a gel eyeliner, so why not make one on yourself. You only need your daily eyeliner pencil and a lighter. Gel eyeliners last longer are make your eyes look stunning, so for that effect, just take the lighter and carefully heat the end of any eyeliner pencil. This will soften the tip of the pencil and after applying, it will cool down and fix itself better for longer lasting effect.
5. Set Lipstick to Last
Every girl wishes for her lipstick to last a full day, without it ribbing off while talking or eating. All you need are a tissue and a bit of translucent powder. After applying the lipstick, hold a tissue over your lips lightly and dust just a bit of translucent powder over the tissue. The lipstick will last all day. Or another solution would be, before using lipstick, to apply some foundation cream on your lips and your makeup will last for sure.
