Applying make-up is a lot of fun which gives us confidence and a powerful appearance. However, the time-consuming process of applying makeup may stop us from wearing it frequently. To deal with this situation, we've compiled a list of tried-and-tested makeup hacks that you may use to save time which will simultaneously improve your makeup game.
1. Apply Concealer In Triangle
Instead of dotting the concealer under your eyes, apply the concealer in an upside down triangle shape. This will brighten the dark circles and draw attention up to your pupils.
Tip: Less is more in case of concealer so don't go overboard.
2. No Eyeliner? Use Eyeshadow Instead
Don't worry if you don't have any eyeliner; your eyeshadow palette will do the trick just fine. Simply dampen an angle brush with water or setting spray. Then, take the wet brush near your eyes and use it to line your eye just like you do with your traditional liner.
To get a smoky look, let the wet shadow line dry and then with light hands run a Q-tip along your lash line, and blend for a softer end.
Tip: Run your angled brush for a bit under a bit of tap water.
3. Easy Way To Put Fake Eyelashes
Fake Eyelashes provide fullness to the natural eyelashes and enhance the look. But to get the best from these eyelashes, don't rush. Do Not apply these lashes just after adding the glue. Let the lash dry for about 30 to 40 seconds and then apply the falsies. This trick will prevent the falsies from sliding around.
While applying the fake eyelashes, hold a mirror below your line of sight and look down in the mirror. This will help placing the falsies correctly.
Tip: Push your natural lashes and the false eyelashes together so they set well.
4. Use Light Liner For Wider Eye Look
Take a liner that is a few shades lighter than your skin tone and apply it to your bottom waterline. While dark liner on the waterline will close eyes in, white eyeliner has the opposite effect. This trick creates the illusion of bigger and brighter eyes.
Tip:Choose a liner colour that amplifies your eye look
5. Curl Eyelashes More Than Once
Don't make the common mistake of pressing eyelash curlers just once on your eyelashes. For the most natural-looking curl, pulse the whole length of eyelashes a few times.
Tip: Squeeze the curler gently instead of pulling your lashes outward or crimping
6. Use Lip Liner For Illusion Of Fuller Lips
Lip liner does more than simply keep your lipstick in place. It can also make your pout appear larger if you draw the liner just over the natural lines of the lips. Use a lip liner in the same colour of your lipstick to fill in your lips. It will give long lasting coverage. You can overline lips this way too.
Tip: For a perfect look, first scrub your lips before applying lipstick.
7. Use Thumb To Keep Lipstick off The Teeth
It gets really irritating when the lipstick gets stained in the teeth which makes your cute teeth smile look horrible and ruins your pictures. To avoid that and keep your lipstick only on your lips, we have a hack. After applying the lipstick, immediately put your thumb in your mouth, now quickly pull it out. This way, you'll wipe away lipstick, if any from the inside of your lips before it reaches your teeth.

Apply your favorite lipstick on your lips. After that, cover your lips with a tissue and apply translucent powder over the tissue. You'll have a matte pout that won't budge all night.
