Festivities can be challenging especially when it comes to makeup. With so many things to do, so may places to be, carrying your makeup pouch everywhere just doesn’t seem like the best idea. What does work though is making your makeup bulletproof to ensure that it stays sealed all day long. But, makeup goof-ups are inevitable. They can happen in the form of your eye makeup smudging, your lipstick bleeding or your foundation caking. Some makeup products are extremely versatile; they not only serve the purpose of what they’re supposed to do, but can be used as a variety of different hacks to fix makeup goof-ups.
 

Smudging Mascara

Smudging Mascara

Mascara can spill, leave marks, clump your lashes or make them look like gelled spikes on a kid’s head. So suppose your mascara leaves marks on your eyelid or even on the bottom of your eye, use the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer stick to fix this. It covers stubborn mascara marks that might make an unexpected entry during the day. Easy to carry and lightweight, let this concealer stick accompany you wherever you go! Apply directly over the mascara marks, or dab some on your finger and spot conceal. It works either way!

 

Flaky Lipstick

Flaky Lipstick

Cracked, flaky lips are anything but flattering. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly is known for its extreme hydrating and moisturising properties. Exfoliate your lips using a toothbrush, making sure you get rid of all the dry and dead skin. Next, dab a little bit of Vaseline on your lips till it disappears and then start with your lipstick.

If you already have lipstick on and your lipstick has started flaking, dab very little Vaseline on it and use a tissue to get rid of the excess. Then, retouch your lipstick again. This will make the flakiness disappear and will provide just the right amount of moisture to your lips.

 

Cakey Foundation

Cakey Foundation

If your foundation starts getting cakey because of sweat or the heat and starts feeling extremely heavy on your skin, loose powder is your ultimate solution. Loose powders have major oil soaking qualities that can give your foundation an even, smooth finish making your makeup look like it’s freshly done.

 

Ungroomed Brows

Ungroomed Brows

Did you put too much product into your brows and now they look like you’ve outlined them with a permanent marker? Or is your brow hair all over the place? Fret not. Use a spoolie or an old mascara wand to groom your brows so the hair sets and looks perfect.

 

Highlighter/Blush Fallout

Highlighter/Blush Fallout

Highlighter fall out can make you look oily and super sticky. You don’t want your face to shine excessively, do you? Grab your compact and cover the excess highlighter or even blush, for that matter by gently dabbing it over the excessive parts! This is a great last minute makeup fix.
