Here you go….a little post of various hints & tips I have picked up over the years that you may already know….but some you may not.
Freeze Your Eye Liner
Does your eye liner constantly crumble while putting it on? Our friends at You Beauty recommend leaving it in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to applying your make up. It should glide along your lash line seamlessly after that.
Turn Up The Heat
For curlier, flirty lashes, the experts at You Beauty recommend heating your lash curler with a hair dryer for five to eight seconds before curling them.
Keep Misbehaving Eyebrows In Check
Spritz an old toothbrush or a clean mascara wand with hairspray, then brush brows and style them as desired. Even the most hard to tame brows will fall in line with this trick.
Applying False Eyelashes
Adding extra eye fringe amps up the glam instantly. First, take your falsies and loosen them by gently flexing the eyelash band, then curl your natural lashes to make sure your falsies line up with your actual lash line. Apply glue on your falsies using a Q-tip. Using tweezers (or finger tips if you feel that gives you more control), place your falsies as close to your lash line as possible. Let your lashes dry for a minute before you add a coat of mascara (this is optional).
Uses For Old Mascara Wands
Don’t throw away your old mascara wand, it’s still got a few uses left. Clean it and use it as a brow brush instead. You might even find it handy around the house — use it to unclog sinks or clean tough to reach areas in your home.
Don’t Pump Your Mascara
The experts at Beauty Is My Duty say that you should never pump your mascara (i.e., moving the wand up and down in the tube really quickly) because it will only allow air into the tube which will cause your mascara to dry (and ultimately shorten its lifespan).
