3. Contouring Nose With Fork
The nose is something that makes everyone feel a bit self- conscious at times as unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with a perfectly straight nose. But why worry when you can contour it and make it look just the way you want it to be. The thing that makes contouring loved by all is that it can change the dimensions of one's face. Contouring can do miracles to your nose. A small nose can look longer, a wide nose can look narrower and a short nose can look taller just by applying some brushes of contour. As you now know contouring is an art of sculpting your face, so it is obvious you do not want to mess it up and be very precise in the process. One of the very effective hacks to perfectly contour your nose is using a fork. Yes, you read it right- 'a fork'. You just have to place a fork on the lower side of your nose and apply highlighter on the middle open slot. Then just apply your foundation on the other two open slots. Now, the last step is to blend it well to get a nose just as you wanted.
4. Coloring Eyelashes Using Liquid Lipsticks!
Recently numerous makeup artists and beauty bloggers caught the eyes of consumers for matching their lashes to their lipsticks. The beauty industry is currently running on the mantra "Not going back to black lashes!"
The beauty bloggers are creating evening makeup looks by taking cues from nude lipstick to create "nude lashes." Apart from nude lashes, glitter and colored lashes, are also topping the list of social media influencer marketing. You can apply blue, pink, nude, and white liquid lipstick as mascara for colored-lash looks. Although the beauty industry is launching more and more colored mascaras lately, nude ones aren't available just yet. So if you are low at budget, and desire for a colorful eyelash, reach out for a liquid lipstick. Before you start, the one thing that you should always keep in mind is to opt for an eye-safe liquid lipstick. Also use a tube with an applicator that has never touched your lips, because it can lead to bacteria and you'll end up irritating your eyes.
Start by simply curling your eyelashes, and applying concealer onto your lashes to turn them from black to beige. Then use a liquid lipstick to color the lashes, and focus on the roots first before lightly sweeping the pigment through to the ends. It's suggested to use a color that's available on your eye-shadow palette. Later use the same shade from the eye-shadow palette to cover the lashes and seal the color. And you're ready to slay!
5. Butterfly Eye Make Up!
Many of us find butterflies as one of the most beautiful creatures present. So wouldn't it be fascinating to add a butterfly to your evening makeup look? Your everyday usual winged eyeliner can sometimes be boring. So, why not, to carry it with a beautiful butterfly. Today, one of the most famous beauty tips for girls is to paint a butterfly on your eye and wear it as an eye mask with a winged eyeliner. Although it sounds a little difficult to paint a butterfly on your eye, it is not so hard to do so. You do not require any kind of artistic skill. Start with applying bright colored eye shadow (you can also try to blend some contrasting colors) and then use your usual black eyeliner to get winged eyes. Remember to tail your liner towards the eyebrows. The next step is to draw the arcs of the butterfly connected to the liner. Then just draw vertical lines from your eyelashes to connect the arcs of the butterfly to the liner. Now, comes everybody's favorite part which is to decorate your butterfly. Decorate it just the way you want like; you can use white dots over it or you can blend some beautiful bright colors to beautify it.
Just like contouring can change the shape of your nose and cheeks, eyeshadow too can change the shape of your eyes. As everyone has a unique shape and color of eyes, your eye makeup should also be unique. Eye shadow is an art that needs to be perfect to lift your eyes or else it can lead to a disaster. Beauty tip for girls with cat eyes is to color the outer corner of your eyes deeper with matte shades and then simply highlight your tear ducts using a shining eye shadow. For the girls with hooded lids stick to matte eye shadows for a soft smoky look.
Not only to different shapes, but eye shadow should also compliment your eye color. Girls with brown eyes look great with brown, green, purple, silver, and gold. For girls with blue colored eyes- grey, purple, green, and orange are great. For black colored eyes-cobalt blue can suit the best.
