#1 Hide those dark circles

Apply the red/orange lipstick around your eyes onto the dark circles. Then follow it up by applying your concealer (with a brush or a beauty blender) and lock it with a loose powder.

And, you are good to go! This trick is perfect for all Indian skin shades and trust us when we say this, you will never just use a concealer once you start using this trick (read, tried and tested)!

You can also use your lipshades as blush and eyeshadows and lock them in with a loose powder.

#2 Lighten a lip shade and make it stay for longer

Haven’t we all had a shade that is too dark for our skin colour or sometimes we may just be in the mood for a nude shade. But if you don’t have a light colour and do not wish to waste money buying a new shade, worry not; there is a hack for that too! All you need is a concealer and some loose powder.

Most of us usually have a pink or a red shade in our makeup kit, but not necessarily a nude one. So to lighten your shade, just apply some concealer on top of your lip shade and gently dab it all over your lips. Your lipstick will automatically lighten.

As for keeping it set for longer, all you need in addition is a tissue paper. Place the tissue over your lips and then pick up some loose powder with your brush and gently brush it over your lips. This should be done with just a smidgen of loose powder. This trick will keep your lipshade in place for many hours.

An additional tip: If your lips get stained with a dark colour and you have to change into a new lighter shade, dab some concealer on your lips before you apply the next shade and you will get its true colour!

#3 Make your face look slimmer

Another one of our major worries is how to make our face look slimmer. Well, there is a simple trick to do the job. You would need either a bronzer, or a nude lip shade or a brown eye shadow. If you have either, you can instantly take off kilos from your face. All you need to do is to contour.

After you’ve applied your foundation (which can be a mixture of moisturiser and a BB cream), use the brown eyeshadow or the nude lipstick and apply it in a thin line onto your cheeks (pout to find the exact line below the cheekbone), on the either corners of the bridge of your nose and also on the jawline.

Blend it well with a brush or a beauty blender and you will instantly notice the effect. Lock it with a loose powder. Now apply your blush and highlighter (if you like), lipstick and you are good to go.
