With skyrocketing beauty and skincare product prices these days, who does not love makeup hacks?  Makeup hacks are often inexpensive, practical and offer multi-functional benefits for various makeup and skincare products.  Quite often, completely unrelated products are also widely acclaimed for their supposed beauty and skincare benefits.

Don't Try These Makeup Hacks

10 Makeups you must never ever try
Bet you’ve heard these makeup hacks before, and probably tried one or a few yourself in the past!  Below are 10 of the most popular makeup hacks that must be banished to oblivion before these hurt — the skin and the ego — of one more unsuspecting victim:

1. Colorless lacquer to stunt and cover up cold sores.
Cold sores are painful enough on their own.  Seriously reconsider if you’re considering this beauty hack at all!  Lacquers are among the harshest if not the most toxic beauty products around.  Stunting your cold sore with a lacquer will only make it more painful than it already is.

2.  Lipstick to dry out pimples. 
For all you know, it could be a makeup product you’re using that caused your pimples to breakout. So, why use an often chemical laden lipstick to further infect your already-infected pore?  Get yourself an inexpensive zit cream or cleanser that contains acne-fighting ingredients like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid instead.

3.  Permanent markers used as eyeliners. 
Yish! This hack is completely ignorant — period!  You don’t even have to think to delve into how toxic permanent markers can be for your skin, you just have to consider how you’ll take it off when you need to wipe it off.

4.  Crayons and Sharpies to color your eyelids and lips.
Using highlighters to color your nails is fine but, to color your face?  Totally unthinkable! Unless you perceive your face as paper, then go right ahead and draw with crayons and sharpies with it.

5.  Underarm deodorant to control excess oils.
Disgusting as it may sound, some people do think deodorant can solve their greasy face issues.  Let’s review!  What does an underarm deodorant try to control?  Sweat, isn’t it?  It’s not the same as oil so what’s the point of having to put this product on your face? Duuuuh!

6.  Onions to thicken your eyebrows. 
Unless you’ve never sliced open an onion before, you’ll figure out how foolish this hack is in an instant.  Onion stings your eyes and, unless you want to cry your tear glands out, it’s best to keep it away from your eyebrows.

7.  Glue to treat blackheads.
How hard is it to get yourself a nose strip, really?  If you don’t have one on-hand, boil yourself a bowl of water and subject your face to the steam.  This opens up your pores.  Follow up with a gentle wash and you’ll be free from blackheads without sticky glue on your face!

8. Lemons as skin brighteners.
The juice of lemon and lime are effective skin brighteners due to their natural astringent properties.  What most makeup tricks list fails to mention is that lemon and lime juice must never find its way on your face in its undiluted form.  These are super drying that it will not only zap out moisture from your skin but even burn it on the spot.  Always add in lukewarm water or honey in a 1: 2 up to 1:4 ratio.

9. Diaper rash cream to cure zits.
Just because zits are so common, that does not mean zits can be relieved by any other unthinkable means, does it?  Leave the diaper rash cream on your baby and find yourself a blemish cream. Any zit can instantly vanished with simple makeup tricks.

10.  Chocolate drink as a self-tanner.
Unless your objective is to be chased all day by ants, cockroaches and other insects then, go ahead and try this makeup hack while you have your bikinis on!

The popularity of social media, somehow, seems to have proliferated many of these makeup tricks too — and, it seems, in fact, more have surfaced in this past decade.  While you may love makeup hacks, it will be safer for you to know that many are myths, and some can actually harm you if you’re not careful.

Here we have brought you some amazing tips and tricks that show you how to apply makeup without having a mirror.

 1.     For the Face

Instead of going for a foundation, go for a BB Cream. This may not give you full coverage but would even out your skin tone. Use a setting powder if you don’t have a BB Cream, and for that, apply it with a big fluffy brush. This blends the Cream or Powder well, and you wouldn’t want to have any sort of cream or powder patch on you.

 2.     For Your Eyes

Use a cream or a liquid eye shadow. Choose a shiny dark stick in brown and blend. Glide the product over the top and mix it with the ring finger into your lash line. If you feel like it, you can put a soft brown kohl pencil in your eyes and mix it to mask errors.

Eyes Makeup without a Mirror

It's certainly frightening to apply mascara without a mirror, but we're promising that it is not that hard! Hold the wand in front of your eyes and blink multiple times, so you can coat your lash.

 3.     For Your Cheeks

Since there is not much you could do to that without a mirror, you can choose a stick or a cream blusher, or even a lip tint. Apply it to the apples of your cheeks and blend it in circular motion till you hit the top of your cheekbones.

 4.     For Your Lips

When applying without a mirror, go for a tinted lip balm or a gloss. Instead of going for the whole, apple the lipstick or gloss on the bottom lip and press your lips together. This would distribute the color. If you feel you need it more, apply it on the lower lip and press again. Use your finger then to even out it out till the corners of your mouth.

Finish your without-mirror-makeup-look by applying your favorite kind of Glow Dew Mist to give a nice finishing dewy glow look. This all may look a bit difficult at the start, but after a while, you’d get used to doing your makeup without a mirror whenever you are in a hurry.

Quick makeup tips for beginners
 Makeup can magically transform you and enhance your personality. You can be the center of every occasion with the right makeup. Although it is an art, putting the right makeup is not that difficult. It has been a mystery for many people but you can master the art by taking simple lectures from master classes on makeup tutorials for beginners from an appropriate online tutorial. What makeup is perfect depends on the occasion and timing. However, some basic makeup tips can help you stand out of the crowd in all situations. Here we present some simple and quick tips for basic makeup.
The basic and essential groundwork for any kind of makeup is cleaning your skin. You can either wash your face with a gentle cleanser or can use a toner to wipe away dirt and impurities.
This is important to moisturize dry skin patches. Even if your skin is oily, you should not skip this step completely. Putting a little moisturizer will keep too much oil on your skin during day time. For oily skin, you can use a gel-based alternative.
    Light Foundation
Put foundation in little spots on your forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. Spread it in an outward direction. You should select the foundation that matches your skin tone. For better coverage, you can use a makeup sponge to apply the foundation but use the same spreading technique.
    Little Concealer
Use a concealer to cover dark circles under the eyes. Use a pointed brush put a dot of concealer on the dark circles. Use a concealer that is closest to your skin tone in shade. Remember not to pick a lighter shade.
    Set Concealer and Moisturizer
Use the translucent powder to set the concealer and moisturizer. You should apply it to your face with the help of a velvet powder puff in a pressing motion. You can remove the excess powder with a powder brush.
    Eye Shadow
You can use an eye shadow shade of your choice. If you are a beginner, you can start with a single color. A rounded brush or your fingertip is ideal to apply the shadow. Make quick short swipes across your lid up to the brows.
    Eye Liner
Use a black or brown pencil instead of liquid to start with. The best way is to lift your upper lid with one hand, look down, and apply it along the rim of the upper lash in small strokes.
    Curl Lashes
Perfectly curled eyelashes can enhance your look multiple folds. Use a lash curler for the purpose. You should put the curler at the base of your eyelashes. Press for around five seconds to see the magic.
One coat of mascara will keep your lashes in shape for a longer time. Apply to upper and lower lashes moving towards the outer corner of the eye.
    Blush Your Cheeks
Applying blush to the apples of your cheeks gives you a natural glow. You can use either cream-based or powder-based blush. Apply on apples blending upwards towards the temples. Smile while doing it for better results.
    Lip Gloss and Lip Color
Put lipstick with your mouth little open and starting from the center. Blend to the corners with your finger. You can also enhance your lips by outlining with a lip liner. If you are using a regular lipstick but want a matte finish, apply a little powder after putting on lipstick.

The air is cool and crisp, the leaves on the trees are changing colors and pumpkin spice can be found almost literally everywhere! This only means one thing: Fall is finally here! One of the most favorite and most anticipated seasons of the year, if not only for the fashionable fall-colored palettes, but also the opportunities to dust off our killer boots and magnificent scarves. And what better way to tie together a dazzling Autumn appearance than with beautiful, timeless makeup looks?

Timeless Looks for Your Fall Makeup - Beauty Tips


Your face should be considered the canvas – the base - of your masterpiece. A beautiful canvas like this shouldn’t be coated in a hundred layers of cake-batter-like foundation! You can keep it simple with a light foundation that can benefit your lovely skin with an SPF and anti-aging ingredients. A matte-finish is preferred by many, leaving your skin looking airbrushed and shine-free. A matte finish tends to be a little bit thicker, but applying a thin layer is absolutely perfect for those ladies that suffer from an oily skin type or prefer a more "Photoshopped" look. A more dewy finish typically comes from a thinner, water-based foundation. If you want a natural, effortless look, then definitely go with this type of foundation. You can even try using natural colored bronzers or Autumn-colored blushes to maintain that healthy summer glow, but still exude warm, flushed cheeks.

Tips for Applying Your Blush and Foundation

Since every foundation uses a different brush, for a specific look, we wanted to cover a few and their uses. Such as this: Use a large, full brush for a mineral foundation and sheer coverage. For those that choose liquid foundation, use a synthetic foundation brush or flat head for the best look.

Tips for Applying Your Blush and Foundation

Be sure to use small motions to apply the makeup onto your skin and be sure to blend it in (You don’t want obvious lines anywhere). Not blending is one of the worst foundation faux pas.

To get radiant and uniform coverage, also be sure to blend your foundation into your ears, hairline, and on your neck.

You can use a plastic spoon to help with contouring your blush or bronzer. Place the round part of the spoon on the apple of your cheek, aligning the handle to face toward the top of your ear. Using your favorite color, contour below the spoon, remove the spoon, then apply color to the apples of your cheeks and blend it in to soften.


People almost always notice someone's eyes first. We have been taught since we were children to always look at someone when they are talking or when we are listening. Our eyes can be one of the most stunning features we have and so it is imperative to accentuate them rather than mask! Here are two timeless looks that are bound to draw some attention: The "cat eye". This look has been around for decades, being classically worn by actresses and models throughout the 1950s. Creating that seductive little curve, your eyes will scream elegancy. Second, "smokey eyes". This look is still worshiped by fashionistas. This makeup effect can be simplified or dramatized and can deliver a sexy, mysterious appeal. No matter what color choice you make, be sure to use a good shadow and smudge brush to smoke out the look. And be sure to soften the under-eye liner to create that edgy look!

Tips for Drawing That Cat Eye

Draw your line with a pencil first, then go over it with a liquid eyeliner.

Apply the liquid eyeliner in little dots. Now all you have to do is connect them for an even line!

Literally any color of eyeshadow can be made into an eyeliner by wetting a thin brush, like a detail eye Makeup Brush or an Angle Brush and running it over the shadow.


Who can look at red lipstick and think it's ugly? No one, right? Red lipsticks and glosses are pretty coveted by most women. This daring, classic color can vamp up any of your simply makeup looks and it’s found in thousands of  variations of shades. A cherry red is a classic that drips in sexual appeal. Whether you just want to make a bold statement or you want to entice the entire world, red lipstick is a must for Fall.

Not a super-fan of red? Not to worry. A lot of people really love deep rich plums, burgundies, browns, and burnt orange browns this Fall. Who wouldn't? There is surely something to be said for these rich shades and tones. Why not pair a burgundy matte lip with a nice matallic topper for a rich, trendy look? Or try a burnt orange brown with simple, natural eyeshadow and a simple blouse for a nice, simple look this Fall.

Tips for Those Lips

Have you ever wondered why some of red lipsticks you’ve tried make your teeth look yellow? You picked the wrong one! To find the right one, look for a red lipstick that has blue or purple undertones. This tip will make your teeth super white.

And it may seem like an unnecessary step, but try filling in lips with a lipliner and apply your lipstick afterward. It will significantly prolong your lip makeup.
You can also avoid annoying lip makeup bleeding by using concealer around your lips to produce a sharp finish or using longwear lipsticks.

These looks may be sported year after year, but when something works, why stop doing it? Fall is the perfect time to wear these absolutely timeless makeup styles. Elegant, luscious colors are prevailing trends this year. So put on your boots, grab a sweater, and try some new makeup ideas, Fall is here!
