The Beauty Hacks You Need to Know


11930842_1465462947113898_2033867387_n

Lips: If you have dry lips don’t forget to exfoliate your dry lips with a clean disposable mascara wand for a smoother lipstick application. However, first make sure that you just apply some lip balm over your lip first in order to give your lips some slip, so it is much easier to slough away any flaky skin. Second, if you do not want lipstick on your teeth like me you can keep your lipstick off your teeth by sticking your clean pointer finger in your mouth, wrapping your lips around it, and then pulling your finger out. Any lipstick that would have gotten on your teeth will be left on your finger. Third, in order for you to make your lipstick last longer just apply your favorite lipstick and just hold a tissue over your mouth. After that dust a translucent powder over it. A small amount of the powder with transfer onto the tissue this way, locking in your color.

EyesIn order to make your eye shadow color to pop, first add a nude shadow base. This way the light reflect of the base shadow revealing the true color of the top eye shadow you are wearing. You want an easy way to apply eye liner? Use a lash curler to apply your eyeliner. Simply line the curler with eyeliner, curl your lashes and you’re done! It is that simple.

Face: In order to apply a concealer effectively, if you apply your foundation first, then you’ll find that you don’t need to use as much concealer. However, if you apply concealer first, you’ll remove most of it while applying your foundation. When concealing pimple, I find it more effective to apply a green concealer first and then applying a concealer of my own skin tone. In order to get a boost of hydration and glow in my skin, I spray my skin with Vitamin C Spritz (See Body Works Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz for $19). This only give my skin a nice glow but a keeps it hydrated as well. You can also apply rose water (Amazon for $9.99). In addition I apply Tatcha Supply Rich Silk Cream (Sephora for $150) which makes the foundation go in easily and my face do not dry out easily. You can get the travel size for $3o at Tatcha website. As for contouring I use my makeup brush handle as my guide to find my cheekbone when contouring. Makeup looks more natural this way. Trace a number 3 along the perimeter of the face, starting with the center of the forehead then tracing along your hair line. You then move down the middle of the ear follow by the hollows of your cheek, sweep back towards the ear and continue down alone the jawline. Wala! You just traced a number three. Just repeat until you get your desired look and buff the brush after to trace along to until blended. You now trace number 11 along the sides of your nose your give definition to your nose. In order to create perfect highlight just trace number 3 around the eye in one continuous sweep. Just start at the middle of the forehead just above the eyebrow and sweep all the way around the temple to the top of the cheekbone. Then just repeat with the brush to blend. Don’t forget to add hightlight tracing number 1 on the bridge of your nose and little bit on your chin as well. You are now all set.

Hair: If you want to prevent split end and breakage from your hair make sure your hair is well conditioned and lubricated. Leave-in condition will not weigh your hair down and keep your lubricated at the same time. When heat to style your hair make sure that it is well protected. Make sure you use a heat protection product to protect your hair. Check out Allure magazine’s Top 10 heat protection products under $20. If you are like me and do not want to blow dry then try out Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It (Sephora for $14) . This is an amazing product that gives me the perfect texture and definition that need for my air-dried hair. An for the days you want to go with the shampoo try the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk (Sephora for $20). This is the best dry shampoo I have ever use so far. It makes my hair feels  light and fresh. My friends could not tell that I did not wash my hair. I am happy.
