Check out these hacks if you want to spend less time in front of the mirror.

Here are 4 hacks, which will make your beauty routine much easier!

  1. Fix The Oiliness With Baby Powder

If you tend to get oily in your T-zone and you either run out of powder, or, you can’t find anything which does not break you out, this small hack can be a lifesaver. Dust a little bit of baby powder on your face with the help of a big, fluffy brush. You can also use it to bake your under-eye area. It will set all of your makeup quickly as well as give you a nice, smooth finish. Avoid putting on too much, though. Baby powder is not translucent and can potentially leave a white cast if you use it in abundance. It is amazing when you need to absorb different types of oils quickly – you can also use it as a DIY dry shampoo or as a volume buster if you don’t have time to go to the salon in East NYC.

  1. Figure Out The Contouring

Use a long pencil or a makeup brush handle to determine where to put your contour on. Press the object of choice underneath your cheekbone and use it as a guide!

  1. Fluff Up Your Eyelashes

If the thickness and the volume of your lashes leave much to be desired, try dusting a small amount of baby powder or regular translucent powder on them in between the mascara layers. Don’t go overboard with this trick; otherwise, you’ll be left with two sets of spidery lashes.

  1. Create A Perfect Cupid’s Bow

This hack is a gem if you still don’t know how to define your cupid’s bow or you are simply not feeling like spending half an hour on the task. To create the desired shape, simply put an X in the center of your upper lip where you want the shape to be and use it as a guide.
