Have you ever wondered how celebs always seem to have flawless makeup, with no sign of those daily dilemmas that we all face? Here are some beauty hacks to help you get that red carpet look.
Okay, so we don’t always have time in the morning to finish our makeup, let alone accomplish the looks we see all over social media from celebrities and bloggers. But with a few tips, tricks, and wonder-products, you’ll be ready to take on the day with a new found confidence.
Use a white/nude eyeliner to brighten eyes
Tired-looking eyes are probably the biggest insecurity for people who are constantly on the go. We’ve always been told to conceal under-eye bags with a shade lighter than our foundation to brighten the area, but what about making our eyes look more open and lively? Lining your waterline with a white or nude eyeliner will create the illusion that your eyes are bigger and therefore more awake.
Rimmel’s Scandaleyes Kohl Liner in ‘Nude 5’ is a great option.
Set eyebrows to make them last all day
All girls will agree that there is a fine art to filling in eyebrows, yet it’s so easy to ruin all our hard work by smudging them or using a powdery product that has fallen out by the end of the day. Setting them with brow gel is the solution to all these problems, as it’s the beauty world’s equivalent of superglue! For a more natural look, use a clear gel to simply set your pencil or powder product. Or if you want to define your colour, use a coloured gel which matches your product.
Try Rimmel’s Brow This Way, or MAC’s Brow Set to see the difference!
Use a foundation brush to correct any mistakes
We’ve all had one of those moments where we’re rushing our blusher or bronzer and end up applying it with a slightly heavy hand. A foundation brush with no extra product added can be the best saviour, rather than scrubbing frantically at your skin. Blending everything with a round-top brush would work best as it buffs the product into the skin, and hey presto, your makeup is perfectly even again!
