Let ‘s find out 10 beauty tricks that every woman should know:

1) Add saline solution to dry mascara 

Mascara should be replaced every 3 months as bacteria accumulate inside which can cause infections . However, it often happens that the mascara dries out sooner, either due to inattention or because the brand is not of good quality. At that point, what to do? You can make it usable again by mixing it with a few drops of  saline . The latter will dissolve the encrustations and make the dry mascara liquid again!

2) Heat the curler with a hair dryer

An already well-known beauty trick, this. To shape your lashes more easily and keep the curl longer, just heat the curler with the hair dryer. The operation follows the same logic as the plate: you need to heat the base of the tool, wait for it to cool down a bit and then apply it to the lashes.

3) Mix the eyeshadow with a gel

Have you run out of lip gloss or lipstick and don’t want to buy a new one? No problem, with a little ingenuity you can easily prepare one at home , in a few minutes. Just mix an eyeshadow with a gel and that’s it.

4) Apply the glue of the false eyelashes with the tip of a bobby pin

The application of the specific glue on the false eyelashes is a very precise operation that requires a lot of attention and a steady hand. With a simple clean hairpin everything becomes easier. After a few minutes, when the glue has dried, calmly apply the false eyelashes to your eyes.

5) Use a spoon to avoid mascara marks

When you apply mascara on the eyelashes, it happens very often to leave some marks on the eyelid, perhaps staining the eyeshadow. A simple spoon can help us avoid it: just place it just above the eye, with the curved part facing outwards, while applying the mascara.

6) Use the “triangle” corrector

To cover bags and dark circles, the concealer is essential, but perhaps the correct way to apply it is not the one usually used. By drawing a triangle under the eye, instead of the dots, imperfections are better hidden, giving greater brightness to the face and greater intensity to the gaze.

7) Use a pen 

Not all faces are the same, so makeup shouldn’t be, either. To find the most suitable solution for each case, you can resort to the help of a pen , to be placed under the cheekbone. In this way, it is easier to understand how to apply highlighter and other products with the brush for the most natural effect possible.

8) Dry your face with a paper toilet cover

Some skins are oilier than others and often produce excess sebum, creating a shiny effect on the face. When you are away from home and do not have special wipes, you can also use paper toilet covers to absorb excess liquid from your face . The effectiveness is the same, the practicality as well!

9) Soften the eye pencil with the lighter

To make eye pencils softer and more gel-like, just the flame of a lighter . After about 15 seconds, the tip of the pencil will be softer and ready for use. The color, which will have the consistency similar to that of a gel, can be applied as an eyeshadow or lip tint.

10) White pencil on the eyelids

To bring out the color of the eyeshadow on the eyelids, you don’t need to overdo the quantities and you don’t even need too much effort. Before applying it, it is advisable to first apply a layer of white pencil, which will help the pigments to distribute themselves better, with a more intense effect.
