In the last post about make-up saving fixes, we told you how to fix clumpy mascara, cakey foundation, and chipped polish. Today we are going to help you out even more by telling you how to fix an oily t-zone, smudged eyeliner, and runny lipstick. After these tips you will no longer have to throw away your favorite make-up.
1. Oily T-zone. When you have a oily t-zone, you can use a large powder brush to apply powder as needed to absorb oil. It will keep your make-up looking great, while getting rid of the excess oil on your face. If your face is prone to becoming oily, try use an oil free moisturizer, and try using a once a week oatmeal scrub. It is great for exfoliating your skin, and it helps to decrease the oil.
2. Smudged Eyeliner. Not everyone loves to rock the smudged eyeliner look. If you do just evenly smudge both eyes with a make-up sponge. If you do not want the smudged eyeliner look, take a cotton swab to blot and lift way the streaks the best you can. You can prevent the smudged eyeliner look by staying away from heavy moisturizers around your eyes, and use a gel-based liner. They go on much smoother than liquid eyeliner, and do not run. Also try using eyeliner just on the top lid.
3. Mussed/Runny Lipstick. Lipstick that doesn’t stay in place is not a good look for anyone. To clean up runny lipstick, dip one end of a cotton swab in make-up remover and wipe off the area. Use the other side of the cotton swab to remove any access remover. Use a small dab of concealer to cover up any left over discoloration. To prevent lipstick bleeding, use a clear of color close to your lipstick as a liner. Or you can use a matte lipstick. They have fewer moisturizers, so it is less likely to bleed. To add shine, just use a simple lip gloss.
I hope this simple make-up fixes give you beautiful, long lasting make-up. Come back to see our next blog post.
