Once we are out from our house, all dressed up, we might not have the time or the chance to do even a quick touch-up. But not to worry, there are makeup hacks that help you look gor­geous all day long, with­out hav­ing to re­touch it again and again. Don’t for­get to use a primer. Many of us feel that primer is not im­por­tant and of­ten ne­glect it. But, let us tell you that it is the primer that helps your makeup stay longer. So make sure you ap­ply it un­der and over your eyes if you are plan­ning to wear eye­shadow and all over your face, so that the foun­da­tion can stick well. To make your makeup stay longer, you need to min­imise your pores. So be­fore you ap­ply makeup, rub ice cubes all over your face. This will tighten your pores. Makeup works best on taut skin. To pre­vent the ka­jal or eye­liner on the lower lid from smudg­ing, ap­ply loose pow­der on the top of your foun­da­tion, es­pe­cially un­der your eyes. If there is any spill, all you need to do is dust it off. Here’s a trick to avoid your mas­cara from splash­ing. All you have to do is to hold a busi­ness card just be­low your lashes while you ap­ply mas­cara. This will help you do a clean job. Nail paints take quite a while to dry, and when you are in a hurry, it seems to take hours. A per­fect so­lu­tion to this is to ap­ply pol­ish and then dip your nail in ice wa­ter. The pol­ish dries in­stantly!
