Makeup artistry is by definition an art, and while we may not all be experienced makeup artists, there are tons of simple and easy-to-perfect makeup techniques that’ll instantly elevate your game. From our ride-or-die eyeshadow technique to the brow rule everyone needs to know, here are some makeup hacks that’ll take your makeup game to the next level.
For Flawless Eyeshadow: Halo eye
A halo eye has been our go-to makeup eyeshadow technique for years as it instantly opens up and exaggerates the eye. Plus, once you learn the basic technique, it’s so versatile as you can play with different textures and colors, or even experiment with negative space or adding a graphic line. If you’re wondering, what’s a halo eye? It’s an eyeshadow look that’s created by using light or bright colors in the center of the eyelid, which is contrasted by darker shadow on either side. Here’s our step-by-step guide:
Step 1: For a flawless halo makeup look, start by creating the contrasting shadow on the inner and outer corner of the lid. Taking a small fluffy brush, pack the shadow onto the outer corner, buffing the eyeshadow into your crease. For more drama, apply the deeper shade along your lower lash line as well.
Step 2: For the center of the eye – the halo – you want the pigment to pop, so pack the eyeshadow onto the lid with a flat brush using small tapping movements, then blend outwards for a less structured, blended finish. Finally, to play into the halo effect further, use a shimmer shadow on top to accentuate the light of the halo, then add a little shimmer directly below on your lower lash line.
For Perfect Brows: Bring Your Brows Closer Together
This brow hack is so simple, and yet it can make your brows look more sculpted, your nose more chiseled, and overall, help your face look more balanced. Needless to say, we’re obsessed. Literally, just by taking your brows further in by a few millimeters can make a big difference. Now, it might also be that one of your brows is naturally further in than the other, so it might even be a case of just needing to pencil-in one brow to make sure the brows are more evenly matched. When bringing your brows together, always start off by gradually working your way in as you also don’t want them to be too close together. Use a brow makeup pencil to create hair-like strokes, and gradually work your way in one hair at a time, to see what looks good on you.
For Bright Under Eyes: The Ultimate Concealer Hack
If you feel like your concealer never gives you the coverage you want, then this hack, made popular by the drag community, is about to become your go-to. The hack makes even your medium-coverage concealers more intense, and the trick is surprisingly simple. Start by applying a thin layer of concealer to the areas you want to target, then leave it for between one to three minutes – experiment to see which timing works best with your formula. Essentially, this ‘drying’ time helps the concealer set on your skin, therefore when you go to blend, it’s almost semi-dry, so it doesn’t disappear into your makeup sponge.
