Your everyday beauty essentials have hidden talents: Unleash them with these tricks that will give you a gorgeous reboot with makeup you already own
- Take mascara and pink lipstick where they’ve never gone before
These makeup-bag staples aren’t one-hit wonders. “A warm, rosy lipstick looks great on cheeks, and even eyes, applied all over, it creates a soft, harmonious look. After you’ve swiped the hue on your mouth, finger-pat it along your cheekbones and very lightly on your lids. Then try this mascara tip: Wet a pointy eyeliner brush, dip it in your mascara, and you’ve got a black liquid eyeliner,sweep it along your top lashes for a clean, elegant finish.
- Everyday Eyeshadow
Many women like to wear nude eyeshadow during the day, but it doesn’t really do much for you. Instead, try one that’s a few shades lighter than your skin tone. Brush all over the lids, and it immediately makes you seem more awake. If you have olive skin, try a peachy shade, and for dark skin, go with a camel hue.
- Master the winged eyeliner
Try: start at the outer corner flick first: I follow the curve of the lower lash line and draw it on as if it’s an extension of that. Then draw along the top lid and connect it to the flick.
