Sometimes, doing makeup can be stressful. If you’re in a rush to get to work in the morning or are late for a party, it can be even more stressful.
However, this article has gathered together some fun tips for you to try the next time you’re doing your makeup. These tips should (fingers crossed) help to make the experience more enjoyable for you.
As soon as you’re ready, let’s take a look at them.
Firstly, Don’t Go Too Fast
Doing makeup automatically becomes less fun when you see it as a challenge that you need to rush through. Instead, you should relax, sit back, and take your time. This way, you will be able to enjoy the experience more.
In fact, you can even play games on your smartphone in-between for some light entertainment. At least this way you won’t become bored with your makeup routine. For example, you could play mobile slots, which is a fun online casino game.
You could also try Project Makeover, which is a free-to-play game on iOS and Android. If you need some makeup inspiration, it’s definitely a game you should download!
Next, Listen To Music In The Background
When doing your makeup, it’s never a good idea to sit in silence. Instead, you should listen to some music in the background. If there are no songs or albums you want to listen to currently, you should stick to a podcast instead.
Right now, there are lots of interesting podcasts out there.
Lighting candles is a great way to relax when applying makeup. Here are some of the best scents to test out:
Ideally, you’ll need to make some space on your makeup table for your candles for extra safety.
Use Vaseline As A Base For Your Makeup
Here’s a fun little makeup tip: use Vaseline as a base.
Not only will this help to keep your skin moisturized, but it will also prevent it from becoming clogged.
This is because Vaseline forms a protective layer around your skin that prevents dirt, grime, and the makeup itself from clogging the pores.
The best time to use Vaseline as a base is during winter when it’s cold outside. Doing this will help to prevent dryness, too.
The actual term for using Vaseline on your face is ‘slugging’. Slugging once a week helps to reduce inflammation, redness, and even acne all the time – so don’t knock it until you’ve tried it!
Make Your Own Bronzer
Did you know that you don’t have to buy your own bronzer from the store? That’s right: you can make it yourself at home. To do this, you will need:
- 2 teaspoons of cinnamon powder
- 3 teaspoons of corn-starch
- A few drops of essential oil (or coconut oil)
Once you have mixed everything together in a tiny bowl or cup, you can then apply it to your face. After a while, you will learn the ratio of ingredients that work best for your skin.
