We have entered the new year with some amazing parties & smiles! :) But getting back to the routine, we have one of the most important things to take care of—our skin. You must have seen a lot of beauty hacks & makeup hacks that you never really use because they’re confusing as hell.
And no matter how many resolutions you make, one thing has remained the same over the years – laziness. :) But who doesn’t want flawless skin? So if there are makeup hacks/beauty hacks that I can really do, they should be with few ingredients and under 5 minutes.
So I came up with 7 lazy people-friendly beauty hacks that anyone can do without having to sigh and say – “oh my god what am I even doing!”
Hack #1: DIY Tinted Moisturizer
You can make it easily at home using a lightweight foundation and a high-quality face moisturizer. Even adding a few drops of a good sunscreen and a coin-sized amount of foundation works really well towards getting flawless skin.
Make sure the moisturizer/sunscreen you use is hydrating, or the DIY tinted moisturizer will soon start feeling uncomfortable.
Hack #2: Foundation + Highlighter for that Extra Glow
Trust me, this hack is a life-saver when you have no time to immaculately apply the highlighter at the right places. This can also prove to be a good way to make your makeup last longer!
Hack #3: Make your Own Illuminating moisturizer
Have you always been wanting that glass-like smooth glowing skin we always wonder how to get? Here’s a way: Mix a little bit of highlighter with your favorite hydrating moisturizer. Ta da! Your homemade illuminated moisturizer is ready! Get ready to flaunt your flawless skin.
Hack #4: Hack #3 + Lipstick = Natural Blush
Get those “naturally flushed cheeks” without having to watch a hundred tutorials. Take your favorite pink lipstick, mix a little bit of highlighter to it, and add a good-quality moisturizer. Voila! You have your natural-looking cheek tint!
If not this, you could directly apply your lipstick as a cheek tint for a natural blush!
Hack #5: No time? Tinted Moisturizer Works Wonders
At times we’re running late and don’t have the time to go for the whole moisturizer→primer→concealer→foundation→compact routine. Have a good, skin-friendly tinted moisturizer for such times—your 5-in-1 solution to lack of time.
Make sure the one you use is hydrating so you can wear it comfortably for longer durations. It also gives a good base for blush.
Hack #6: Facial Oil for the Win
If you have dry, acne-prone skin, begin your day with a good quality facial oil. It will keep your skin away from dryness and even wrinkles in the long run. It also acts as the perfect primer and keeps the makeup intact for longer, giving you flawless skin in the long run too. And of course, the glow you get in the final look is everything you’d ever ask for!
Hack #7: Eye Cream for the Laugh Lines!
Don’t underestimate the power of a good eye cream, especially once you’ve entered your 30s. With regular massage around the area, random lines around the neck or smile lines around your lips can be smoothened, and even fade. Keep it overnight for better results.
Of course, along with these beauty hacks, face yoga will do wonders. Don’t forget to wash your face twice daily, apply a skin-friendly day cream and night cream, and most importantly, get your beauty sleep!
Have a super happy 2022! :)
