6 Tiny Beauty Steps That Make All the Difference
Stepping up your makeup game doesn't require drastic measures. (And who has time to replicate a 45-minute YouTube tutorial anyway?) Simple tweaks, like switching up your go-to eyeliner shade and layering your mascaras, are all you need.
Switch to white eyeliner…
A black eyeliner pencil might be your go-to, but swapping your usual for white makes you look more awake. "Use it on the waterline to help the whites of your eyes pop and make your eyes look bigger and brighter," says Jenny Patinkin, makeup artist and author ofLazy Perfection: The Art of Looking Great Without Really Trying. Or dab it on to neutralize redness. L'Oréal Paris Cosmetics Infallible Paints Eyeliner in White Party glides on smoothly — no skips or tugging — and lasts all day.
…and Use It for Everything.
Who said that eyeliner should be reserved just for your eyes? "Lightly smudge it down the center of the nose to make it look slimmer," suggests Patinkin. "In the center of the lower lip, blend it before adding gloss to give your lips a pouty look." It's a soft, matte alternative to highlighter.
Prime your eyelids with concealer.
There are some makeup products that seem a little superfluous, and, if you're not a diehard cosmetics junkie, eyeshadow primer might be one of them. You can give the effect a whirl without a trip to Sephora by applying a base of concealer to your eyelid. "The yellow tone neutralizes any redness and can intensify your eyeshadow," Patinkin explains. Bonus: Your shadow may last longer, too.
Layer your mascara colors.
Blue mascara is a makeup MVP because it brings out the whites of the eyes to reduce redness and make them look brighter. If you want a more subtle look — read: not so '80s — apply blue mascara and then add your regular black mascara just to the tips of your lashes, suggests Patinkin. One like not only pops, but it also makes lashes look fuller.
Darken or lighten your brows.
You may have already figured this one out, but your brow color and hair color are closely connected. Less obvious: When you dye or highlight your hair, you should adjust your eyebrow shade accordingly. Patinkin recommends altering your brow color with a thicker-tipped pencil, like . It's easy to apply, and you don't have to deal with the hassle and cost of tinting your brows on a regular basis.
Brighten skin with shades of purple.
Using purple tofixunder-eye darkness? Yep, it's a thing! "Applying a lavender shade in a deep v-shape under your eyes and into the tops of your cheeks brightens your complexion," Patinkin says. The lavender shade in helps rid your skin of that not-so-cute sallow look.
