3 Life-Changing Makeup Tricks We Wish We Knew Sooner

February 21, 2018 by Emily Belfiore

Makeup can be so transformative. It has the power to hide blemishes, lift the skin, brighten the complexion and even make you look like your favorite celebrities! In fact, there are little tricks and tips that the pros swear by to help you get a flawless glam every time. From the way you apply your mascara, to wear you should highlight your face, here are three life-changing makeup tricks that we wish we knew sooner:

1. Use Translucent Powder To Get Bigger Lashes

 

Want fuller, longer lashes? All you need to do is dust on some translucent powder between each coat to achieve them! Take your fluffy powder brush and gently apply some to the lashes and follow with another coat of mascara until your lashes at the desired length and fullness.

 

"This provides grip and texture so that you can layer additional coats of mascara," according to makeup artist Lauren Cosenza. "When you coat layer after layer of mascara while it's still wet, you end up just moving the product around versus adding volume, fullness, or length."

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finish Airbrush Powder ($24)

 

We recommend IT Cosmetics’ Bye Bye Pores Powder, which instantly erases the look of pores and imperfections to deliver airbrushed perfection.

2. Use A Highlighter Pen Instead Of Concealer To Look More Awake

 

Everyone thinks that concealer is the only thing that will brighten their under-eyes and make them look more awake, but it turns out that you can get the same effect from a highlighter pen! Highlighter has a lighter texture and illuminates the entire area, which will make your skin look awake AND glowy! 

Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE Eclat Radiance Perfecting Pen

Yves Saint Laurent TOUCHE Eclat Radiance Perfecting Pen ($38) 

 

This is one of the best highlighters on the market, and it’s not hard to see why! It brightens, smooths, and perfects the complexion and delivers a radiant, natural-looking glow.

3. Use Transcluent Powder Over Your Lipstick For Long-Lasting Color

 

Tired of your lipstick fading away halfway through the day? Then you're going to love this trick from Cosmopolitan. Apply your lipstick as you would normally, then lay a tissue over your mouth and dust translucent powder over it to set the color. 

 

By using a tissue, you're making your lipstick long-wearing AND protecting the bold color from the white tint that can come with using translucent powder!
