You’ll absolutely love these makeup hacks if you’re a makeup junkie. They save you a lot of time and protect you from the horrors of a makeup application gone wrong.

#1 Bye Bye Spider Lashes!
 

#1 Bye Bye Spider Lashes!

There are days when we don’t get the time to apply mascara properly, and it ends up clumping and looking like spider legs. Know that it does not look very appealing. If you don’t have the time to take it off and start all over again, Vaseline is perhaps the only thing that should be able to get you out of such predicament. Take some Vaseline on your fingertips and rub it over your eyelashes. This will separate your lashes from one another and make them look neat and pretty.

#2 Set your lips with a blush!
 

#2 Set your lips with a blush!

We’re all guilty of having licked the lipstick off of our lips at some point in time.

Well, you can ensure that your lipstick stays on for much longer by applying some powder blush onto your lips. All you need to do is that after applying the first coat of your lipstick, take some powdered blush on a fluffy brush and dab it all over your lips. Then, apply another coat of lipstick over it. You’ll surely notice the difference once you’ve tried it!

#3 Use a highlighter for fuller lips!
 

#3 Use a highlighter for fuller lips!

Honestly, we wouldn’t mind having even 10% of the fullness that Kylie’s lips have. Full, plump lips are extremely beautiful and luscious to look at, and while most of us aren’t blessed with perfectly plump ones, there’s a way to make them appear so! Apply some highlighter around your cupid’s bow and the centre of your lips after you’ve applied lipstick, to make them look plumper. Easy, isn’t it?

#4 DIY Gel liner!
 

#4 DIY Gel liner!

Why spend a fortune on buying a gel liner when you can make one for yourself? Yes, you heard that right! All you need is pencil eyeliner and a lighter. Place the tip of the liner a little over the flame for about 3 to 4 seconds and see the pigment turn to gel! Quickly apply your eyeliner before it cools down. Repeat this until you’ve managed to apply the gel on both eyes.

#5 Use a concealer for even lips!

If you have pigmentation on your lips, you’re certainly no stranger to the pain caused while applying lipstick. Uneven tones and lip discolorations make the application of lipstick extremely problematic and the final result, pretty unflattering. A concealer can solve all of these issues for you. Before applying your lipstick, apply some concealer on your lips. You’ll instantly notice the difference it makes!
