1. Reuse your nail polish and Fix broken lipsticks
Many of us ladies throw away more than half of the nail polish when they feel it it’s getting dry. Why? Because we never knew the dual purpose of the nail polish remover solution. Don’t throw away your nail polish when you see it drying. Just add some nail polish remover solution to it and let it rest for some time. The nail polish will be again ready for use. You can also put a dried up nail polish jar in hot water. This will help it melt and will make it reusable. You can even put your nail polish in a refrigerator – this will help to prevent bubbles forming in it. Your nail polish will look beautiful and smooth.
Lipsticks are soft so they get broken easily. But that’s not an issue. Put the broken pieces together; burn them under a low flame of a lighter and then place it in a freezer for some hours. When you see that it is solid again, you can use it just like before. See, how simple this is and you can save some cash too!
2. Use an eyeliner to make eyes look bigger
Bigger eyes always look more attractive and beautiful. It is because of the proper highlights done on them. If you want to make your eyes look bigger, don’t apply eyeliner on the upper eyelid. Apply it on your lower eyelid. This will make your eye look bigger and more appealing than ever before. Adding some Kajal on your eyes can also be effective.
3. Get perfect lipstick
First of all, don’t be tense. First, apply some lip liner around the edges of your lips. Then fill up your lips slowly and properly. You’ll definitely have the perfect lipstick then.
4. Get winged eyeliner easily
If you’re not very good at applying eyeliner you should try this trick. Hold your breath while applying the liner. This will help your eyes to stay still in position. Take a spoon or a paper and put it in a position on the eyelid you want your liner to be. It will act as a stencil and you’ll get the perfect winged liner. Try it, you’ll feel like an artist.
5. Get clean lower eyelids while putting eye shadow
