Beauty Hack # 1
Always blend your foundation in downward and outward strokes starting from the center of the face. This is the natural direction of hair growth and prevents foundation from looking patchy. A damp sponge or brush also gives a smoother finish than a dry brush.

 

Beauty Hack # 2

A light shimmery beige or pale gold eye shadow in the inner corner of the eyes opens them up and makes you look wide awake. A beige or white eyeliner on the waterline also opens up the eyes and makes them appear bigger!

 

Beauty Hack # 3
A creamy lipstick can easily double up as a blush! This sneaky tip can help you match your cheek color with your blush and save up tons of space in your makeup bag too!

5 Steps to a No-Makeup Look

 

Even if you love your lippie and can’t live without mascara, it’s always refreshing to sport a natural no-makeup look from time to time. This obviously shouldn’t be taken literally. It’s all about mastering the art of ‘looking’ like you have no makeup on! As Calvin Klein once said, “The best thing is to look natural, but it takes makeup to look natural.” Here’s how you can achieve a soft, no-makeup look in 5 easy steps –

 

5 Steps to a No-Makeup Look
5 Steps to a No-Makeup Look

 

 

Step 1 : Correct and even out your skin tone

Use a light coverage BB cream or foundation for sheer coverage and a natural finish. The idea is to even out your skin and not mask it under a heavy coverage product. Use a concealer to spot correct areas that need extra coverage such as the under eyes, sun spots and blemishes. Use a light powder to set the base, but remember to use a very light hand to avoid a thick powdery finish.

 

Step 2 : Tightline your eyes using a black or brown liner

Tightlining simply means lining the top and bottom inner rims of the eyes with liner, staying as close to the lash line as possible. Black can look a little harsh especially on gals with lighter/fairer skin and lighter eyes so I suggest using a brown liner for this step. Apply the liner into the roots of lashes to give them natural volume and instantly open up your eyes.
