5 Beauty Hacks to Fix Makeup Mishaps

Beauty is about enhancing what you have. Let yourself shine through.” - Janelle Monae

As the quote suggests, most women love to wear makeup and will at least have a basic makeup kit in their closet. We aren't all perfect and are prone to make beauty blunders from time to time. Such blunders spoil our look and often need to be rectified as soon as possible.

So, if you are in need of a quick fix to resolve makeup blunders, here is some advice:

Too Much Foundation
Ever applied more foundation than necessary? Is it giving you an unnatural makeup look? This can easily be rectified by using a moisturiser. Apply a small amount of moisturiser, using your fingertips, in small circles over your foundation layer. Use a sponge to get rid of the extra product. Avoid using a moisturiser that is too thick as you will end up spoiling the whole foundation layer.

Nowadays, matte makeup is a trend amongst women. No one likes to have a shiny T-zone. Pressed or translucent powder is commonly used to get rid of any shiny and oily areas of the face. Although, powders help set our makeup in place, it doesn’t always look nice to have an overly-mattified look. In case you forget to ward off the excess powder from you face, give it a quick spritz using a facial mist. It will get rid of the chalky look and leave you with a glowing complexion.

Bold Brows
Perfectly, sculpted brows is what we all aim for when defining our brows. What if your effort made your brows look too bold, and not so natural? This may have happened to you at least once, right? Don’t worry, there is a solution. If you've filled in your brows too harshly, work a spoolie brush through the hairs to get rid of any extra product and help distribute the product more evenly. You can find a spoolie, as well as other brushes, at a discounted price at Feel Unique.

Bleeding Lipstick
You may be frustrated to find that the lipstick that you just applied has spread outside the lip line. It is bound to happen sometimes, thus, a quick fix is required. For this, you will need a damp sponge (or a cotton bud) and concealer. Remove the lipstick that has shifted away from the lip line using the sponge or cotton bud and then apply some foundation or concealer over the area. You can avoid this situation altogether by applying an anti-feathering lip liner before applying your lipstick.

Smeared Mascara
If your eyes have ever watered in the wind, or emotions are getting the better of you, you may find your mascara has smudged. It's very easy to rectify. All you will need is a damp sponge or cotton bud to clean up the area. In case you are on the go, you can simply use a tissue to clean up the mess and then apply concealer to the area. A number of concealers and correctors are available in cosmetic stores.

So, next time you find yourself suffering from a makeup mishap, try out these simple and easy trouble-handling tricks. You are sure to look amazing and stunning in no time!
