Make up tricks

Achieving the perfect makeup doesn’t need to be complicated or time-consuming.

Thanks to these handy tips and tricks you’ll never have to feel frustrated in front of the mirror again. Whether you’re wondering how to nail the perfect cat-eye or make your lipstick stay on longer, you’ll find the best advice right here. So, no matter if you’re a beginner or somewhat of a pro, you’re sure to learn a thing or two from these helpful hints.

 

Never put concealer on your eyelids

Although you may be tempted to apply concealer or foundation to your eyelids as a base, you should always refrain.

While using concealer under your eyes is a great way to mask dark circles and under-eye bags, applying it to your eyelids can ruin your eye makeup by causing it to become creased.

 

Using tape or spoon for cat-eye look

Creating the perfect cat-eye look with eyeliner can be tricky. Not only is it hard to get the ideal flick and shape, but you also need each side to match. For an easy way to nail the perfect feline flick, try using a spoon or some tape. Start by creating a straight line from the outer corner of your eye following the edge of the spoon. Then, trace around the curved edge from the end of your flick back down to your lashes and fill in the wing.

 

Shape your eyebrows

Shaping your brows needn’t be difficult, just follow these steps. Start by brushing your eyebrows with a spoolie, so the hairs sit naturally.

Then, use a soft, waxy brow pencil to shape the outside of your brow with the thinner side of the tip. Using the flatter angle of the pencil, fill in your brows using short, hair-like strokes. Finally, blend some highlighter just below your brow bone for lift.

 

Match lip colour with cheeks

Matching your lip colour with your cheeks creates a lovely, coordinated, and natural appearance.

To achieve the look without a dual-purpose product, you can easily turn your favourite lip crayon into a cream blush. Just apply some to the back of your hand before using your finger to blend it across your cheeks.

 

 

Quick smokey eye

While a lot of smokey eye looks require several different shades of eyeshadow and a whole lot of blending, there is a fast and easy alternative. Simply use an eye pencil to draw a slanted hashtag above the outer corners of your eyes and blend with a smudge.

Doing so will instantly create a killer smokey eye that’s dark and light in all the right places.

 

Make your lipstick last longer

Whether it’s a wineglass or your husband’s cheek, lipstick has a knack for ending up everywhere but on your lips.

If you find that yours keeps disappearing before the end of the day, try employing this handy trick to give it a longer life. After swiping on your lippy, place a tissue over your lips and dust on some translucent powder. Doing so will help set your colour and make it instantly longer-lasting.

 

Fake the cheekbones

Although not everyone is born with killer cheekbones, we can all fake it. All it takes is some simple sculpting. Start by puckering to find the hollows of your cheeks and apply a deep nude blush or contour powder in the sunken area under your cheekbones.

Next, apply a peachy blush starting from the apples of your cheeks and moving outwards while lightly blending with the nude blush beneath. Finish with a sweep of shimmer along the top of your cheekbones and under your temples.

 

Exfoliate your lips

To easily achieve soft and smooth lips that are lipstick ready, exfoliate by gently rubbing them with a baby toothbrush. To make the process even more efficient, use a simple homemade lip exfoliant and brush on in circular motions. All you’ll need is some brown sugar and coconut oil to create an easy, useful, and natural exfoliate.

 

Fuller lips

For ladies with a little pout, over lining can be the key to achieving big, luscious lips. All you need to do is follow Kylie Jenner’s lead and apply lip liner just outside your natural lip line, focusing on the Cupid’s bow and center of your lower lip.

The extra line will make your lips appear instantly bigger and plumper.

Tips to look after your teeth

1. Brush at least twice a day. The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums.

2. Use fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.

3. Brush thoroughly. Tooth brushing should take between two and three minutes.

4. Floss your teeth daily. Use a slow and gentle sawing motion.

5. Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices. Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be ‘eaten’ right down to the gum.

6. Limit sugary foods. Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids.

7. Protect your teeth from injury. Wear a mouthguard or full-face helmet when playing sports.

8. Try to save a knocked out tooth. If possible, hold the tooth back in place while you seek immediate dental advice. If this is not possible, wrap the tooth in plastic or place it in milk and seek dental advice immediately.

9. Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food. If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.

10. See your dentist for regular check-ups. You should also visit your dentist if you have a dental problem such as a toothache or bleeding gums.
