Taking an unconventional approach to makeup can help you out in loads of situations, like when you’re pressed for time and lack the products to finish your look. Using beauty products in a different way can change your routine for the better, and sometimes, can make applying your makeup that much easier! Who said lipstick has to be reserved for the lips when they make such amazing blush tones? A well-mastered hack can save you from many beauty emergencies, not to mention, keep you from running out of the house all frazzled!
We’re giving you the inside scoop on truly genius beauty hacks some of our favorite celebrities are gushing about! Ready to get innovative?
Facial mists for hydrated hair
We love a good facial mist, but sometimes our hair needs some moisture too. Instead of leave-in conditioners or gels, opt for Evian Mineral Water Spray instead! Spritz it on the ends of your strands for a smooth finish. Did we mention, Lucy Hale toldByrdie she swears by this technique?! If she’s doing it, we HAVE to try it!
Use lipstick in replacement for blush
Fun fact: cream blush actually came from the idea of applying lipstick to your cheeks. A classic satin or matte finish lipstick is the perfect substitute for blush. In an interview with W Magazine, supermodel Joan Smalls uses red lipstick and peach lipstick on her cheeks, too, rather than reaching for a different blush.
Using lip balm as mascara primer
Ever thought about using lip balm as a mascara primer? It adds shine to your lashes and holds the product longer. And to top it off, this beauty hack is Queen Beyapproved! She told Allure she uses Rosebud Salve to prime her lashes before curling.
Add baby powder to your lashes for fullness
Apply your mascara normally, then brush it out even more with baby powder for that extra fullness. This technique will give you stronger looking lashes like Kim Kardashian West, without the falsies! If you need a little extra help check out this tutorial from fashionlady.in!
Use tape as a liquid eyeliner stencil
Unless you’ve got the hand of a surgeon, mastering the technique of liquid eyeliner is far from easy. So instead of leaving it to your sub-par artistic skills, just take some good ‘ole scotch tape and use it as a guide for your liquid eyeliner. Jamie Chung toldByrdie she likes to use this trick whenever she feels like doing a feline flick.
