1. Apply concealer in a triangle shape.
Do the dark circles bother you? You no longer need to be concerned. We’ve got a hack for you! Stop dotting your concealer and try applying it in a triangular shape to brighten your under-eye area. It's ideal for concealing dark circles under the eyes. Draw the base of the triangle directly under your lash line and the tip pointing toward the apple of your cheek. This helps to completely conceal any redness and shadows, giving the appearance of brighter under eyes.

2. Apply your foundation before concealer
Applying your foundation before your concealer is the simplest way to improve your makeup routine. Consider this: Starting with a layer of foundation can help minimize any redness or discoloration almost like you're creating a smooth canvas for the rest of your products. You may then use your concealer to spot treat any zits or lingering redness, using far less product in the process. Another advantage? Applying foundation before concealer is a brilliant fix for reducing caking and creasing.
3. Use a spoon as a mascara shield
Every woman has been through the pain of finishing her eye makeup only to discover that she’s somehow ended up with mascara on her lids. Well, thanks to this hack, you can finally put an end to that pesky problem. All you need is a spoon from your kitchen to get perfect mascara every time. Simply place the end of the spoon beneath your lashes before applying mascara as usual. Any residue or excess product will now end up on the spoon's back rather than on your face.
4. Make your eyeshadow pop with white eyeliner
You love to try out vibrant and trendy eyeshadows? To make a sheer or less pigmented eyeshadow look more vibrant on your eyelid, first, blend a white eyeliner pencil across your entire eyelid. While dark liners will close eyes in, white eyeliner has the opposite effect. This will create a clean white background for the bright colors to pop out. The opaque coverage of the white liner will intensify any eyeshadow shade and make it pop and give the illusion of bigger eyes. Try this hack now to see the difference.
5. Make your lipstick last longer by setting up your lip color with tissue and powder.
Lipstick has a knack of ending up everywhere but on your lips, whether it's a wineglass or a cup of hot coffee. If you find that yours disappears before the end of the day, try this handy trick to extend its life. After applying your liquid matte lipstick or a crayon lipstick, dab some translucent powder on your lips with a tissue. This will help to set your lip color and make it last longer.

Finish with a shimmery sweep across the top of your cheekbones and under your temples.
8. Refresh your clumpy mascara
