Hack 2: Use Concealer in a Unique Way
Apply concealer to the outer corner of your eye. This area is prone to redness, which can draw the shape down, so by neutralizing the discoloration, you can reshape your eye and create a lifting effect.
Hack 3: Don’t Just Keep Lip Liner for Lining
Use your lip liner to fill in the entire area of your lip, creating a matte base for lip color to grab to ensure longer wear.
Hack 4: Simplify the Smoky Eye
A smoky eye can be as simple as an eyeliner and a smudge brush. When in a pinch, line your upper lashes and slowly blend it out over your lid with the brush, creating a smoky effect.
Hack 7: Only Use Bronzer to Contour
Contour is achieved by using a deeper shade than your skin tone, so your bronzer could do double-duty as a bronzing powder as long as there is no shimmer in it.
