The Fashion & Beauty bloggers at #TeamMissMalini decided to try and test some beauty hacks we’ve been seeing all over the internet. Rest assured, these 6 makeup hacks REALLY work! We’re covering everything from eyes to lips and we loved working with the wonderful products provided to us by Maybelline!
1) Card Trick #1
Eyeliner can be a woman’s worst nightmare, especially when you’re in a hurry. I know I’ve messed up a perfectly good winged liner or tried a cat liner that went horribly wrong. Solution? A card! That’s it.
Line the card at an angle from the outer corner of your eye to the end f your brow. Use this line as a guide to extend your liner. I used the Maybelline Gel Liner that comes handy with a brush. And you’re done! (P.S – If you’d prefer a cat liner like mine, just connect the end of your wing back to the liner at the corner of your eye.)
2) Card Trick #2
Another major mess-up I make way too often is spreading mascara all over my eye. No, raccoon isn’t the look I’m going for. So, let’s use our handy little card once again. Hold it on top of your lids and apply Maybelline’s Colossal Mascara. Do the same when you’re applying mascara below, by holding the card below your lower lashes.
This will stop your mascara from getting all over your eyes.
3) Powder Trick #1
Start out by applying your lipstick (or Lip Polish, in our case) as normal. Now, the lip polish is already long-lasting, but we’re going to seal the color with a handy little powder trick. Dab your lips with tissue to remove excess product, then hold the tissue there.
Use a brush to pick up some loose powder and apply it on your lips with the tissue as a layer in between.
4) Powder Trick #2
Apply a coat of Maybelline Colossal Mascara, then use a small fluffy brush to coat your lashes with loose powder. Once you’re done with that, apply another coat of mascara. Your lashes will definitely look thicker and fuller!
5) Kohl Trick
This is the best smokey-eye trick ever! All you’ve got to do is create a hash tag (#) using black or colored kohl at the outer corner of your eye. Then, smudge upwards and inwards. We used Maybelline’s Colossal Kajal in turquoise.
You’ve got a super easy smokey-eye!
6) Double Duty Blush
We used a compact blush brush to apply Cheeky Glow blush on the apples of our cheeks and the same brush to apply eyeshadow on our eyes. You’ll have an instant, flushed glow.
