Hi everyone, welcome back

These five beauty hacks can help cut down your daily beauty routine while still looking your best.

1 – Don’t have time for a full eye shadow routine? Use your bronzer as eye shadow, defining your crease and gently patting it over your eyelids.

2 – To make the eyes seem brighter, use a white eyeliner to line your waterline.

3 –  Use red or orange lipstick to conceal dark circles; Apply the lipstick using a brush under your eye area, then reach for your concealer as normal and apply over the top, blending in with a sponge or your fingers.

4 – Moisturize your lips with a vaseline, this juices up your lips. Next use lip liner and for the final step apply the lipstick… this make the lips looks bigger and healthy …

5 – Dry shampoo leaves hair looking and feeling refreshed without washing. It Absorbs excess oil from the hair, and leaves them looking beautiful and healthy.

 

That’s it from me today, thank you for reading xx

Makeup tips for eyes

Hi everyone, welcome back

“Your eyes are the windows of your soul”. Beautiful eyes give an impression of having a beautiful heart and beauty at this stage of human evolution is achievable with makeup.

Image result for makeup tips for eyes

There a multitudes of ways to define your eyes using makeup, but all that mascara, liner, shadow, contour, and highlight can get incredibly confusing…..

Apply eye primer with the help of your finger; the eye primer will even out your skin tone. If you have dark circles, don’t forget to use concealer.

Eye shadow – Select your eye shadow colour according to your taste. looks awesome. If you have selected more colors start form the lightest color and move on to the darkest.

The bronze eye makeup will make you look exclusively stylish not only in night parties but also in daytime functions. Pick up the idea and speak with your eyes.

Highlight your eyes in the right place. Apply a light, sparkly eye shadow right under the eyebrow and in your tear duct. This trick will make it look like light is bouncing off your eyes!

Apply a gel, pencil, or liquid liner on your top lash line. If you have light eyes, go with a brown eyeliner, while brown eyes will pop with black liner. Work the liner into the lash line as close to your eyelashes as you can.

If you want your eyes to look more awake and your brows to look more defined, apply a white eyeliner underneath your brows along your brow bone, then blend.

Your eyelashes are the most beautiful part of your eyes; spend more time to make them even more beautiful. Use a thick mascara brush to apply mascara on your eyelashes.

Curl your eyelashes to make your eyes look bigger. Applying mascara is an easy way to define your eyes, but using a lash curler truly opens them up.
