Hack #1: Conceal CorrectlyIn order to create a seamless, brightened undereye look, it's important to extend concealer past your dark circles. I swear by the inverted triangle trick, which is basically exactly what it sounds like. Swipe your undereye concealer straight across the width of your eye, down the length of your nose, and then connect the two sides to create a triangle shape and fill in the rest!
Extra Credit: Use a brisk dabbing motion to blend in the concealer instead of rubbing. It prevents pulling of the skin and concentrates more product in the desired area.

After applying eye primer, start your eye shadow routine off by applying a white base color. It will create a foundation that allows shadows to display their true color, as opposed to the one created when put directly on top of your skin tone.
Extra Credit: Save time and money by using this white eye shadow base from Nyx that works as a primer as well.

To make your lip color last all day or night, hold a tissue over your lips and dust the area with translucent powder. With this trick, you'll never have to buy a special long-wearing lip product again!

Give your tired eyes an instant pick-me-up with a little white or cream liner on the waterline and the inner corners of your eyes.
Extra Credit: Dab a bit of the color just above the cupid's bow of your top lip to add fullness.

For the longest lashes you've ever seen, apply a coat of mascara and then follow up by spreading baby powder on the tips of your lashes with a q-tip. Then, apply a second coat of mascara on top. The mascara will stick to the baby powder, adding on some serious length!
