I’m sure most people can relate, I am obsessed with Pinterest. If I have a question, need to find a dinner recipe, or looking for inspiration for a new project I want to work on I always find myself searching Pinterest first. The funny part is sometimes these Pinterest finds are in no way, shape, or form realistic to do. So I decide I would attempt some hacks I find that I have been wanting to try and see what the outcome is. This week I’m going to try out beauty hacks. Wish me luck..
Beauty Hack #1
Red Lipstick to coverup dark circles
So I found this red lipstick from CVS. It’s the Milani Passion. I read that the red is a color corrector for dark circles and I thought, “Hey, I’m the dark circle queen with 2 kids. I definitely need to try this out.” I wanted to do one side with the red lipstick and one side without to see if you can tell a difference. Then I forgot and did both and wiped off the left side.
It was really weird to put this under my eye. I looked like I was sick or had pink eye! I’m not sure if I blended it out as much as I need to but I let it set for a minute and put my foundation on. I did concealer over that and it covered it all up. I’m not 100% that it worked completely but we did say that it made my eye look a little brighter so I guess that’s a sign that it covered up some under circle!!
Over all I think I’m going to have to try this one again to see if it really worked!
So for now I’ll give it a PASS!
Beauty Hack #2
Use a spoon to get perfect wing shaped eyeliner
I have seen this one around the internet and don’t really know what to think.
I’ve tried this twice now. The first time the pictures didn’t come out so well but the winged liner wasn’t horrible. I felt that if you have never attempted winged liner and are looking for a quick guide because you don’t have time to run out or to watch a ton of YouTube videos it was a good try BUT my second time around trying it did not come out like the first time I tried it.
It actually was quite horrible the second time. My wing went so far up my eye it was awful. I don’t think I will try this one again and have to give it a huge thumbs down.
Beauty Hack #3
Use baby powder to lengthen and thicken eyelashes
To be totally honest I can’t really tell if it worked. I put one coat of Urban Decay mascara on. I used a q-tip to dust my eyelashes with baby powder. Added another coat of mascara, another coat of baby powder and one last coat of mascara. I did my left eye with just 3 coats of mascara. I can kind of tell a tiny bit that the right eye was thicker but length wise I did not notice any different. I would definitely give this another shot to see if it really helps. Maybe add a little extra baby powder.
I am going to give this one a FAIL because I didn’t notice a difference really.
Here is the final look of everything!
