After watching countless beauty tutorials over the years promising tips and tricks that will improve my beauty routine, these are the three easy beauty hacks that have stuck with me.
1. Oil in foundation
For a flawless base, mix 2-3 drops of face oil into foundation. The oil won’t alter the formula of the foundation, it simply adds a little skincare benefit and creates the prettiest dewy finish. Wayne Goss has been championing this hack for years but the recent popularization of face oils has made it so much easier to use. The best part is that it works with any face oil.
2. Powder on lips
A little translucent powder is the key to turning any lipstick into a long-wearing one. This beauty hack is incredibly simple: swipe on a layer of lipstick, blot with a tissue, dust on a light layer of translucent powder, then apply a second layer of lipstick. Et voilà – color that will stay all day.
3. Vaseline under fragrance
It only costs $4 to make your expensive perfume linger longer. Just dab the littlest bit of Vaseline on pulse points or any areas you spritz your scent – inside wrists, bottom of neck, inside elbows – before applying. The product will hold the fragrance longer than dry skin on its own.
