Under Eye Concealer

Concealer: Applying concealer correctly can save the day. Instead of following the age-old practice of dotting your concealer under the eyes, apply it in a triangular shape. After rubbing it in gently, dab on some translucent yellow powder and watch your whole face come alive.

Smokey Eyes

Smokey eye look: Here’s an ultra-cool trick of getting perfect smokey eyes for a party or for work and that too in less than 5 minutes. Use your eyeliner and draw a slanted hashtag on the outer corner of your eyelid. Now blend this in with the rest of your make-up and voila, it’s done!

Winged Liner

Winged eyeliner: Doing a winged eyeliner at home may seem tough but it really isn’t. All you need is a few minutes and some scotch tape. Place a piece of tape at the corner of your eye, going towards your eyebrow. Now use your liner pencil to draw a thin line across your upper lash line extending all the way to the edge of the tape. Trace the edge of the tape with your liner and now make the line thicker on the outside edge than the inside. It makes your whole face look more defined.

White Eyeliner

White eyeliner: A white eyeliner or kohl pencil can work wonders. It is also a beautiful way to make smaller or droopy eyes pop. Use it on the inner corners of your eyes for a wide-eyed look. Draw a sideways V and then gently blend it in.

Lipstick: Your lipstick begins to fade and lose its initial vibrancy as the day progresses. And who has time to reapply it? Apply one coat of your chosen lip colour. Now lightly hold a tissue over your lips and dust off some translucent powder over the tissue. This seals your lip colour for a long time.

Longlasting Bun

Hair bun: It can be quite frustrating to keep tying your bun multiple times a day. An easy trick to help your hair bun stay put all day is to tie two ponytails as close to each other as possible. Merge the two in a neat bun. This way your bun won’t look loose or messy throughout the day.
