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 Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
