Quick Fixes for Makeup Mess-ups
We've all been there- you put your makeup on in the wrong light, or perfectly applied liner to one eye but then on the second you end up looking like a raccoon. Not to despair! As the holiday party season approaches, here are my top 3 handy tips to clean up your misstep, without having to start all over.
Falsies foux pas. If your false lashes have come loose, don't use your fingers to try and fix them- this usually makes it worse! Rather, grab your mascara and use the wand to set them back in place. This will also help to weave the false lashes into your real ones, helping them to look more natural.
(Hot tip: instead of using the entire lash strip, just cut off a section and adhere it to the outer lash line. Not only will this appear more natural, you also will get more use out of a set!)
Flaky lipstick. As much as we love bold lips (especially for those special night outs), there isn't much worse than glancing in a mirror and realizing your lipstick has stuck to everything but your mouth, leaving a patchy mess. The fix? Makeup removing wipes! This will ensure that reapplication will be smooth and sassy, with no gritty bits or uneven color.
Eyeliner emergency. No matter how many times you apply eyeliner, it often feels like each time is the first, and you have equal odds of perfection or a complete mess. That's why your best friend is the pointed cotton swab- dip it in a bit of moisturizer or makeup remover, and it's super easy to neaten up any messy lines or blotches.
