Fix shine zones
Face becoming a greasy mess? Keep blotting sheets and a beauty sponge in your bag. Wrap the blotting paper around your beauty sponge and dab it on the shiny areas of your face. It will take the excess shine away without leaving your foundation cakey or patchy.
Smooth out creased eyeshadow
A day out in the sun = makeup meltdown! Your eyeshadow transfers, creases and even fades as you go about the day. but worry not. Simply wipe the eyeshadow lines gently and use your fingertips to smooth the colour out all over your lids.
Clean smudged eye makeup
Runny eyeliner and smudged mascara can be fixed in just a minute. How? Roll a cotton swab around your eyes for a quick clean-up. Use a moisturiser to smoothly clean smudges and then reapply your eye makeup.
Perfect your pout
It takes only one bite of a burger or a sip of coffee for your lip colour to disappear, smudge or bleed. Remove your faded lipstick completely using a tissue paper. Then apply a lip balm and fill in with lip liner before you apply your lipstick to make it last longer.
Buff translucent powder
To instantly freshen up your look, dust some pressed powder or finishing powder with the help of a fluffy brush on your face. It mattifies your look, smooths out creased makeup and provides an even finish in just one buff.
