Do you have that red or dark lipstick that is messy to apply? I have! I love wearing red lipstick on a special occasion but it always leaves a red mark on my lips but this hack has saved me! If you want a precise look, you can do this with lip liner and then fill in with the lipstick.
10. If your eyeliner pen runs dry, remove the tip, and flip it around. You might be surprised to find that there’s a whole lot of liner left!
You will have a huge advantage if you are having an eyeliner pen. You can remove the tip and switch it to the other side so you will be able to use up all the eyeliner left.
11. The secret of long-lasting lipstick
This has proven to me that my lipstick can last long. Prep your lip with a lip scrub and smoothe your lips. Then, apply lip balm and concealer or foundation. After that, line your lips with lip liner and fill in with lipstick. You can coat your lips a couple of times for a more intense color.
12. Long-lasting eyeshadow or eyeliner. Who doesn’t want that??
I tried this hack and it is the best ever! I am not joking. I use translucent powder every time I do touch up and it helps remove the oil on your eyelid and under the eye where your eyeliner usually bleeds.
