8 Makeup Hacks Every Girl Should Keep Their Eye On

8 Makeup Hacks Every Girl Should Keep Their Eye On

Makeup is an essential part of a girl’s life. It helps in enhancing the physical beauty and helps in making your features appear more attractive. Several girls reserve make-up for special occasions and many apply a little every day before going to work or college. The desire to look good is a normal one because the way you look also has an effect on your mood. Looking beautiful also helps in increasing a person’s confidence.

You cannot go to parlor every day to get your makeup or hair done. It is important that girls can handle their makeup all by themselves. Here are some of the hacks that can be very helpful to every girl.

1. Turning Eyeliner Pencil into Gel Formula

The colors such as green, black, burgundy, etc. are eyeliners which make it difficult to create and apply a thin line. You can make things easier by holding them under the flame for just about one second. After heating it let it cool for fifteen seconds. After this procedure, you will see a change in consistency of the eyeliner. You can finally glide on the gel you have made and create an instant smudge formula.

2. Perfecting the Winged Liner

You can apply the perfect winged liner by holding a stem of a spoon against outer corner of the eye. Use the stem of the spoon to draw a straight line because it is the first step of getting a cat eye. The next step is using the other side of a spoon so that it hugs your eyelid. Use the rounded edge to draw a curved winged effect. This makeup hack is the best way of creating a cat eye.

3. Getting Instant Smokey Effect

Girls like to have Smokey eyes, but they may find it difficult to create it. There is an easy way of creating it. All you need to do is to draw a hashtag symbol before the outer corner of the eye. Once you have drawn it, you need to blend it out. Use a smudger to blend it and you will have the trendy smoke eyes.

4. Applying Mascara on Upper Eyelid

If you do not want to get your mascara marks on the top eyelid, then you should use the curved edge of a spoon. Hold the spoon so that it hugs your eyelids and apply mascara. As you use the mascara, you will notice that black residue coats on the back of the spoon and your upper eyelids stay clean.

5. Adding Saline Solution to Flaky Mascara

It is important to know that you are only supposed to use the mascara just for three months. After three months there is a chance of it collecting bacteria. If you see contaminated mascara, it can lead to eye infection. If you find that your mascara has become dry and flaky within the three months, you can revive it by adding a few drops of saline solution.

6. Curling the Eyelashes Perfectly

If you want to curl your eyelashes easily and make sure that they stay curled, then the best way is to blow hot air on the eyelash curler. A heated eyelash curler will make it easier to curl them because it will work similarly to the curling iron. The heat helps in changing the pattern of the hair. You can use a blow dryer to heat it. Wait for it to get a little colder, or you will end up burning your lashes. Make sure they are still warm when you clamp it down on the lashes so that they are curled.

7. Putting on False Lashes

Outing on false lashes is not an easy task. It is important that you are very carefully in applying the eyelash glue. If you do not use glue correctly, the lashes will not stick to the real lashes. To apply the glue entirely, you can use a clean bobby pin. It will help in evenly using the glue along the base of the false lashes. Wait for a few seconds so that it becomes tacky before putting them on.

8. Mixing Your Lip Gloss

If there is an eyeshade that you are obsessed with and you have loose pigments of that color, you can wear that eyeshade as a lip shade as well. All you need to do is to mix the pigment with a little amount of salve like petroleum jelly. Mix these two things with a spoon and use it as lip shade.

These hacks can help all the girls in doing the best makeup and look stylish and beautiful.

How to Keep Yourself Awake at Work Without Caffeine

How to Keep Yourself Awake at Work Without Caffeine

Keeping yourself awake at work can be a real challenge when you’re bored, exhausted or sleep-deprived.

But before you reach for that can of Red Bull, bottle of Mountain Dew, or pot of coffee, try these healthy remedies to stimulate your 5 different senses and help you stay awake at work:

Sight – Visual Stimulation

The first thing you do when you wake up is opening your eyes, so your visual stimulation is very important to keeping your energy level high.

1. Maximize your exposure to light.

Your body’s internal rhythm is regulated by the amount of light you receive. The greater your exposure, the more alert you will feel.

Open the shades and let in the sunlight. Step outside or look out the window. Turn on all the artificial lights in your office or around your work space.

2. Exercise your eyes (or give them a break).

Roll your eyes up and down, side to side and diagonally. Rotate them clockwise and then counterclockwise. Squeeze them shut and then open them wide. Do this several times.

Reading and sitting in front of a computer screen for long periods can lead to eye fatigue.

Take regular breaks with deliberate blinking and looking out into the distance.

3. Take note of your environment.

Learn to enjoy people-watching. Observe their activities, speech, body language and interactions with others. Notice the details of building, trees and other objects around you, including their color, shape and size.

By doing this, you’re not only relaxing your eye muscles but also calming your mind.

Hearing – Auditory Stimulation

What you hear or listen to have direct effect on your brain. This is why we feel so annoyed and sometimes angry when we hear construction noise when we’re working.

4. Engage in conversation.

Talk to a friend or colleague. Trade funny stories. Discuss your business venture, a creative idea, the latest political scandal, or any other topic that interests you.

Practice mindful listening to what you and the other person are saying. Tune into the tone, volume and content of the conversation.

Learn how to practice better listening from this guide:

Why Listen to Reply Instead of Understand Is the Key to Failure

5. Listen to upbeat music.

Try hip hop, rock or jazz to keep you alert. Instrumental, non-distracting music works best.

Sing, whistle, and hum along if you can. Plug in the earphones if you must.

Smell – Olfactory Stimulation

If you’re feeling sleepy and suddenly smell the coffee, you’ll probably feel more energetic. This is why smell is an influential stimulation.

6. Work your nose.

Aroma therapists recommend essential oils of peppermint (to boost energy), rosemary (to build awareness), eucalyptus (to increase oxygen), cedarwood  (to activate your mind), and cinnamon (to improve your reaction time).

If you don’t have essential oils on hand, you can use lotions or burning candles that provide the same scents.

Citrus like lemons, limes, grapefruits and oranges are also natural olfactory stimulants. Get a whiff of these citrus scents to stay awake.

Taste – Gustatory Stimulation

If you want an energetic day at work, you can’t let your tongue feeling plain and flavorless.

7. Have a good breakfast.

Start off with the most important meal of the day.

Think fresh, light and healthy: bran cereals, wholegrain breads, fruits, and yogurt.

Nix the heavy stuff like sausages, greasy eggs or pancakes.

8. Drink lots of water.

Keep a glass or bottle of H2O near you and sip from it throughout the day. Dehydration can leave you feeling tired, sluggish and sleepy.

So make sure you drink enough water throughout the day. Not sure how much to drink? This can help you:

9. Eat energy-boosting snacks.

Nuts and fruits (like bananas, apples and strawberries) are sure bets. Pairings with staying power include baby carrots with a low-fat cream cheese dip; celery sticks with peanut butter; red peppers with hummus; and plain yogurt with granola.

Avoid carb-filled, sugary snacks that make you crash and leave you feeling tired.

Touch – Tactile Stimulation

Last but not least, your sense of touch will make you physically feel more energetic and less stressful.

10. Splash cold water on your face.

Do this in the morning, during bathroom breaks and in the afternoon. Being exposed to cold water pushes your body to adjust and regulate its internal temperature, which in turn keeps you alert.

This works the same as you take a cold shower to increase mood and alertness. Take a look at this article to learn more about it:

11. Use acupressure.

Apply pressure to, massage, or tap on the stimulation points of your body. These include the top of your head, the back of your neck, the back of your hand (between the thumb and index finger), just below the knee and your earlobes.

Watch this video to learn about the acupressure points you can try:

12. Get moving.

Move away from your chair and stand, walk, run or climb the stairs. Feel the earth under your feet. Stretch and twist. Do jumping jacks, lunges, push-ups and back bends.

And if you need to move more discreetly, wiggle your feet, bounce your knee up and down, scrunch your toes, or cross your legs.

You can also try some simple stretches and exercises at your desk:

Unlike addictive caffeine fixes, these remedies activate your senses, engage your attention, amp up your energy and prevent morning grogginess and afternoon slumps without the side effects or health risks.

Pick a few ways from this list of suggestions and practice them consistently. And when you do this consistently, you’ll soon see the positive results — a more energetic and productive you at work.
