Tips and Tricks to revitalize dried mascara
You should only keep your mascara for about three months, because it can habour some nasty bacteria if kept longer. If your mascara before three months seems to be getting a bit cakey before you toss it out, try this little trick! Add a couple of drops of fresh saline solution to the tube in order to thin and liquefy your mascara again. Another great tip is that Sephora has some great travel size mascaras at their beauty-on-the-fly section that will last one or two months so you do not need to worry about it drying out you can just get a new tube.

White eyeliner is your new besty
Probably one of the most versatile pieces in your eye makeup arsenal should be a white eyeliner pencil or eye shadow stick. alistbeauty uses white eyeliner in a light blended application all over your eyelid before applying your regular shadow color. The white base will intensify the color, which is especially important for sheer colors that need a boost. Secondly, you can apply a white shadow stick along the outer part of your brow bone and blend into your all-over eye shade to define your brows and brighten your eyes. Lastly, use white eyeliner applied along your lower water line to open up your eyes and make them look brighter, whiter, and larger than they actually are. If you have deep skin, try a nude liner on your waterline instead.
Tight lining for Super-thick lashes
You may be used to applying eyeliner above your eyelashes to accentuate your look, but have you tried tight lining before? If not, definitely give it a go, we at alistbeauty have had great results because it can really change how you do your eye makeup forever. When you tight line, you should be applying eyeliner directly at the roots of your lashes with a gentle “dotting” technique. This gives you the appearance of thicker and fuller lashes without any mascara. Use this liner technique alone with a nude eye shadow and no mascara or clear mascara for a gorgeous natural look. Or you can add this technique into your regular routine, because when paired with winged liner, mascara, and dramatic shadow, tight lining care really make your eye makeup look amazing.
Alistbeauty suggests you change your routine to stop your concealer from creasing. Make sure you’re using a relatively thin formula under your eyes, not the thick stuff you’d normally use for covering blemishes. Apply only to the inner corner under your eye, before sweeping down across your cheekbone. Use a damp sponge or brush to blend up under your eyes and into your cheeks, then let dry. After it’s dried, gently pull down on the skin under your eye, and carefully blend out any creases that have formed using your fingers. Once this is done, use a translucent setting powder and a soft brush to gently add a light coating of powder over your under-eye area.
If you’re especially prone to creasing, you can try “baking” your makeup for longer crease-free power: After applying a much thicker coating of translucent powder, let it sit several minutes, which will “bake,” or set, your base makeup. Then use your fluffy brush to dust off all the excess powder.
