Use mascara to shape your brows
Do you know how one end of your eyebrow pencil has a spoolie? Well, it’s there for a reason. It helps shape the brows before and after filling them in. Here’s a trick you probably didn’t know: after you’ve applied two coats of mascara to your lashes, dip the wand again, remove excess product and lightly run through your brows to fill them!
Make your eyeshadow pop
The best way to show that you’ve put effort is to ace your eye makeup. To make your eye eyeshadow pop, use a white kajal or concealer as a base before applying your eye makeup products. It will bring out the vibrancy of the product and enhance their colours.
Quick smokey eye
Perfecting the smokey eye requires practice? Not really! When you are a procrastinator, you need to learn a few hacks to get the job done. For a quick smokey eye, we suggest you use the hashtag technique. Take a gel-based eye pencil in dark brown or black colour such as the Lakme Absolute Kohl Ultimate Kajal – Black and draw a hashtag on the outermost side of the lid and blend the product inwards. Swipe some light brown eyeshadow over it and you’re done!
Use multi-tasking products
Invest in a multi-tasking product or use a berry lip shade to accentuate each area of your face. The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color can be used to create a monotone look. To do this, apply some product on your lips, cheeks and eyelids and dab dab dab.
Add volume to your roots with dry shampoo
If you’re having one of those days when your hair is lying flat on your scalp, all you got to do is add some volume at the roots. Pick your dry shampoo and lift a section of your hair, spray from a distance so the product reaches the roots. Flip your hair upside down and voila!
