Getting the makeup right when rushing early for class or the office can be a hassle. Imagine having to juggle between the perfect eyeliner and a toast of bread. Life would be much easier if there were shortcut keys to the perfect wing of the eyeliner and the seamless look of a contour, wouldn’t it?

Of course, it would be! Here is a list of some essential make-up hacks that can get you through your makeup routine with less frustration and more satisfaction. 

Upside-down Mascara Technique

You probably need to start using mascara properly. Applying mascara from root to tip is the conventional wisdom, but if you want your lashes to look their finest, you should do it the other way around. Using this method, you’ll put on three layers:

Begin with the outermost parts of the eyelashes. Move on the center begins to swing out, finally, from base to apex.

The better blush

Traditionally, we’ve been told to apply blush to the highest point of our cheekbones, above our smile lines. However, applying blush to your temples and around your eyes will give the appearance of a raised and oval face. Applying blush over the bridge of your nose and in the middle of your forehead will give you a healthy flush. Surprisingly, it gives the impression of more naturalness than a flush of the cheeks and makes your eyes more noticeable.

Concealer and contour 

This is the ultimate trick to get a flawless, natural finish to your makeup. Use concealer on blemishes and under the eyes, and contour in the hollows of the face instead of a full face of foundation, which you will then have to cover up with a concealer, highlighter, and contour. Use a brush or sponge to blend it all, and you won’t need foundation. Incredibly, it achieves a pristine finish while looking natural on your skin. The concealer will brighten and lift your skin where it needs it, while the contour will bring form and color to your face.

These hacks are easier, simpler, and have a better effect. Remember, you glow brighter when you are happier, and there is no greater happiness than satisfaction.
