Having some make-up hacks up your sleeve can help you to look and feel fresh no matter where you are. If you are going to be out and about enjoying the festive season, these six make-up hacks will ensure that your look lasts as long as you do.
You can touch up your brows with conventional lash mascara. This comes in useful as you won’t need to carry your brow kit with you while out and about. Simply wipe off as much of the excess product as possible and gently swipe the brush over your brows.
You can use your individual blush and lip products when you’re getting ready at home. But for easy, on-the-go touch-ups, invest in a multipurpose tint instead. This can be applied to the cheeks and your lips to create a just-bitten, fresh-faced look with minimal effort.
Do you want to give your face a gorgeous glow every day? Using shimmery products on your skin will help to give your complexion a boost. For some subtle radiance, add a few drops of liquid illuminator to your face moisturiser or your liquid foundation before application.
Does your blush tend to fade over the course of an event? You don’t need to take a bulky make-up brush with you to touch it up – all you need is a round cotton pad. This can be dipped into your blush much like a compact cushion and carefully reapplied to your face.
Dancing might be fun, but during the warm party season, it can be disastrous for your hairdo. Prevent and tame any flyaways with an edge-control gel. Don’t have one? You can spray some hairspray onto a toothbrush to brush and set baby hairs in place.
Most of us need to touch up our lip colour. When you do, it can be messy, and the *last* thing you want is lipstick on your teeth! Prevent this by puckering up, putting your index finger in your mouth and pulling it out slowly. This will remove any product on the inside of your lips.
