Foolproof Smoky eyes
The key to creating a smokey eye is shadow placement and how you blend them. It’s not easy to know which shadow to use where. To master this smoky eye trick, you only need to know the color theory. Swipe on your shadows starting at the darkest and ending at lightest. Pick five shades from a Nude palette such as Rimmel Magnif’eyes Eyeshadow Palette Nude and apply them in straight stripes to your lids. Start at the outer corner, then work your way inwards. To create a seamless gradient, use a fluffy brush and buff the shadows.
Wet-Hair Brush Styling
If you want to give definition to your natural curls and waves, it is best to avoid brushing your hair. But this hack shows that a brush can be useful. Make small sections of your hair while it’s still damp. Smoothen each section with a brush like the Beauty 360 All Purpose Brush. When you reach the end of your section, turn your brush towards your face and wrap your hair around its handle. After curling your hair up to the roots, gently unwind it. For added bounce, you’ll have a spiral that can be twisted. This will give your head a defined texture.
Yellow Eyeshadow Ombre Lip Trick
Good news: ombre lips are back. As wild as this sounds, it is possible to achieve ombre lips with the help of yellow eyeshadow. Apply a layer of concealer to your lips. Next, apply a yellow eyeshadow, such as this bright one from the Wet n Wild PAC–MAN Game Over Palette. Apply a red lipstick to the inner lip. Finish with a sheer pink gloss to blend the two shades, creating that plumped, just-ate-a-cherry-popsicle effect.
The Do-Everything tool
Although it’s simple to just apply one color on your lid and call the day, some advanced techniques require practice. An eyelash curler is a handy tool for perfecting eyeshadows. It’s designed to fit your eyelashes so you can use it (such as the Tweezerman Classic Eyelash Curler) for a perfect cut-crease shape. Simply hold the curler just above your natural crease, and then blend the shadow. The tool can be used to create a cat eye flick or a defined eyebrow arch. It can also be used to curl your lashes, obviously.
DIY Cream Blush
A classic backstage makeup artist trick is to create a cream blush by mixing foundation and lipstick. You can create the perfect color by blending a little foundation with your favorite liquid lipstick. We are currently obsessed with Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor and Velvety Matte Liquid Lipstick In Obsession. Combine the two ingredients on the back end of your hand to make a creamy blush you can apply to your cheeks. To create a monochromatic, subtle look, you can use the same lipstick on both your lips.
