20 makeup hacks you need to know !

Published on 7 August 2020 at 13:34

Have a look at your makeup collection and think about how many different looks you can make with it, even if you only have one eyeshadow pallet think about the mixtures of colours!  But what if I told you baby powder can add more volume to your eyelashes?! Here are 20 makeup tips and tricks you’ve probably never heard of before.....

1. Heat your eyelash curler

Blow your blowdryer on your eyelash curler to heat it up. The heat creates instant curling but make sure your test to make sure you won’t burn your eyelids cause that would not be good !

2.Do your makeup under natural light

I think this is a obvious one but doing it in fake lights cause make certain colours look something else like you could think that you look okay in fake lights but actually you could look reallllyyyyyyyyy pale.

3. Cheap diy fan brush

Fan brushes can be really expensive and there are lots of different types. Grab your favourite blush brush and put a bobby pin where the bristles start.

4. Wet the brush before applications

Spray some setting spray onto the tip of your brush and then when using your shimmery and glittery eyeshadows you can apply them better.


Everyone needs to clean your brushes there is no excuse and they can carry lots of bacteria if you don’t  !!!!!!

6. Know your different brushes

You have to make sure that you use the right brush for the right job and product. It creates the best results !

7. Rubbing alcohol 

If your makeup pallets breaks or cracks you can add some rubbing alcohol then hold it in place and you can restore your old pallets.

8. Walk into it

Normally when you put makeup on perfume can come afterwards but you should spray it upwards and then walk into it. It will distribute the fragrance and won’t affect your makeup.

9. Colour tone

Know your colour tone. Are you cool, warm or neutral? It is important to know your colour tone because makeup has undertones to suit you. An easy way to check is looking at the colour of your veins.
bluish purple veins- cool tones

green- warm

if you can’t tell- neutral 

10. Know the correct order

You should know the correct order of how to put your makeup on and it creates the best result like using the correct brushes.

11. Make it last longer

Dab some translucent powder onto your lips or colourless eyeshadow to make your lipstick or lipgloss last a lot longer. It will create more dimension on your lips too!

12. Use the mascara applicator 

When the mascara has run out keep the applicator and clean it. You can then use it to brush your eyebrows.

13. Contact lens solution 

Instead of throwing out your old dry and flakey you can add some contact lens solution to restore it.

14. Use tissue paper

To stop your mascara from clumping wipe off the access product with tissue paper.

15. Get a brighter shadow

If you want your eyeshadow to pop and if it’s less pigmented than you want add some white eye liner on before to add a base.

16. Eye lift 

To create a instant eye lift and add highlighter above the brow.

17. Feathery strokes

Use feathery strokes when filling in your brows to make them look more natural.

18. DIY bronzer 

You can create your own bronzer by mixing cinnamon powder, cocoa powder, some nutmeg powder, and mix with some cornstarch. 

19. Certain application for certain coverage 

When putting foundation on use your finger for sheer coverage and use a brush for full coverage.

20. The baby powder hack

The last hack is definitely my favourite. Put on your mascara like normal then dust some baby powder on them and then add another layer of mascara on it will give your eyelashes a plumper and fuller look.
