Let’s be real for a second, who really has the time to make sure they look flawless in the morning? Most of the time we roll out of bed just minutes before we’re supposed to be leaving the house, and we just about have a few seconds to throw on some clothes and tie our hair into a messy bun. Of course, we totally would make ourselves up and look even more beautiful than we already do (*wink*) if we had the time, but there’s no way we can give ourselves a flawless finish without a few hours on our hands, right? Well, not quite. Here are the easiest beauty hacks for a flawless finish.
The perfect cat-eye
I mean, who the heck doesn’t love a cat-eye. Winged liner is one of the best ways to turn the dial up on your makeup and make you look absolutely incredible. However, when you’ve just woken up, and you haven’t had your morning coffee yet, trying to get that wing perfect is near-on impossible. Or is it? All you need for the perfect cat-eye is a credit card. Yep, place the edge of the credit card where you want your wing to go, and use the edge to guide you along. It’s as simple as that.
Get plumped with peppermint
Have you always wanted to have lips like 2018 Kylie Jenner but always found that you look like 2013 Kylie Jenner? Well, you’re not alone. Sometimes you just need a little plump in the morning to get you pumped for the day, but your lips just won’t cooperate. Instead of resorting to lip fillers or drastic action, all you need is a little bit of peppermint. In fact, if you add peppermint oil into your lip gloss, your lips will immediately look bigger and fuller.
Fill in the cracks
When you don’t have a lot of time to get ready in the morning, your hair normally comes as an afterthought. If you haven’t washed it in a while, your hair may look think and wispy, almost as if it is stuck to your head. This can often make your parting look even more thin, and your scalp may be on display for everyone to see. If you’re conscious about this, all you need to do is brush eyeshadow onto your parting and let the powder do the work.
The power of 3
Eugh, contouring. Am I right? Who has the time to use different shades and colors to make them look like a clown before blending it all together in one brilliant facial masterpiece? Not us, that’s who! Thankfully, there is a way to perfect your contouring without spending hours in front of the mirror. It turns out that it’s all to do with the power of three. Simply draw a three on your face from the top of your eyebrow, underneath your eye, to the bottom of your cheek. Blend this in, and you’re onto a winner!
Get your lashes perfect
If you’re not fussed about getting your foundation just right or getting your contouring on point, you probably at least want your lashes to look perfect. Thankfully, there’s an easy way to make sure your lashes and your eyeliner are done at the same time! All you need to do is draw eyeliner on to the edges of your eyelash curler, and use the curler as you would. This ensures that the pencil transfers onto your eyelid and your eyelashes get nice and curled together. What more could you want?
Dull down your foundation
Buying the right foundation for your skin tone is one of the hardest things you will ever have to do in life. Trust us; we know what we’re talking about. Because of this, we often buy a foundation shade that is much too orange or bright for us – so what the heck do you do? Well, all you need to do is mix this foundation with some moisturizer, and it will automatically dull it down to suit your skin tone.
