Makeup Tips for 2020
Unfortunately, most women don’t put a lot of effort into looking good because they are working from home. This is the biggest mistake that you can ever make. Looking good should be about you, not others. When you look good, you feel good. It’s a great motivator. Therefore, the next time you wake up for the normal work-from-home routine, spend some time in the mirror to make yourself look good before taking that video call with the boss and colleagues.
Clean your Skin
Before you apply any makeup on your face, make sure that you have a clean and blank canvas. Use a cleanser that matches your skin tone and texture. Cleaning your face gets rid of any dirt that may mess up with the foundation.
Applying the Concealer
Some women have the habit of dotting the concealer in the area they want to apply it. Unfortunately, this method is not very effective. For example, if you want to make your under-eye area really glow, start by drawing a triangular shape with the concealer. Then, use this pattern to completely cover shadows or redness underneath and make your under-eyes look brighter.
Custom Lip Gloss
You can customize your makeup and apply it in other areas. For example, you may have an eye shadow with a very unique color. You have tried searching the market for a lip gloss with the same color, but have been unlucky. Take heart because there is a way to get the lip gloss of your choice. Take loose pigments of the eye shadow and mix with some petroleum jelly. Then, apply it on your lips.
Mascaras have this annoying habit of drying up after a few weeks or months of usage. When that happens, pour a drop of saline solution into the mascara, and it will get its normal smoothness back. You should also keep in mind that mascara should only be used for three months. If it’s more than three months old and dried up, don’t use the saline hack because the mascara is no longer safe to use.
Heat the Eye Liner
If you have to apply the eyeliner multiple times to get the shade you want, there is a way to speed up the process. Before applying the liner, gently heat the head so that it blends better. Let it cool down for a few seconds before using it. You’ll notice that the color pops out easily after heating it.
