The Internet is full of small beauty tricks to create cheaper and faster makeup.
WeGoRo has decided to check the 11 tricks that seem to be the weirdest and most doubtful. Here is what we have!
The tip: It is a popular piece of online advice. You should take a small shot glass, apply it to your lips, and breathe in. The vacuum in the vessel plumps your lips.
The result: The lips have become red and swollen. If you try too hard, you can even end up with a bruise. This is probably a very popular tip, but we’re not going to do it again.
Conclusion: The life hack doesn’t work. Besides, your lips are perfect as they are!
The tip: To conceal your "black eye," you should apply bits of lipstick to the skin under your eyes and shade it with a base.
The result: The shadows are gone, but red stains remain. Now you look like a kabuki theatre actor!
Conclusion: You can use the tip only if you are really a theatre actor and you need good face paint.
The tip: Take a thin thread, and apply some mascara to it. Then touch the thread to the eyelid. This way you can draw a straight flick.
The result: The tip is not trustworthy. The flicks are not straight, and they are different in size.
Conclusion: This hack doesn’t work.
The tip: In order for the nose contouring lines to be straight and symmetrical, use a fork. Its size is perfect for separating the ridge area from the wings. Draw the necessary lines, and shade them.
The result: The lines are really awesome, but make sure your nose doesn’t end up too pale.
Conclusion: We can say the tip works, but it’s still more convenient to do the same thing in the usual way.
The tip: You need to put the pencils into hot water for some time. When they are soft, you can draw any eyeliner you want.
The result: The makeup is quite bright and colorful, and the line is easily drawn. But as soon as the makeup is dry, it falls into pieces.
Conclusion: The hack doesn’t work.
The tip: Cut the beetroot in half, and apply to your slightly wet cheeks.
The result: You have a certain kind of blush, of course, but it’s too red and bright. Besides, it is almost impossible to remove beetroot stains from your face.
Conclusion: The tip works but not as expected. You should not try this.
The tip: Mix shaving foam with a spoonful of sugar. Then apply the mixture to the skin, and rub it. Make the layer thick.
The result: This scrub is almost ineffective. You will also have to waste practically the entire foam tube. It’s cheaper and more effective to buy and use an ordinary scrub.
Conclusion: The tip doesn’t work, but you look rather funny!
The tip: Your nails can turn yellow after using dark polish. To whiten them, apply a cotton pad with lemon juice to your nails, then wrap them with foil and wait for 10-15 minutes.
The result: Nothing has changed. The color of the nails remained the same.
Conclusion: It’s not a method that works.
The tip: If you are out of loose powder, you can use either flour or starch instead.
The result: Flour is all over your face, eyes, and mouth. It’s also in the air. But there is no "powder" effect.
Conclusion: The tip doesn’t work.
The tip: We didn’t give up and decided to try another way of drawing straight flicks fast. With this method, you can use either a credit or a business card.
The result: As before, it is difficult to create flicks this way. Besides, they do not look natural, although they are quite straight. It’s still better to use the good old manual method.
Conclusion: The hack doesn’t give results.
The tip: There is a tip for those who fail to create a straight browline: apply pieces of adhesive tape on the upper and lower sides of the brow, and crosshatch the space between them.
The result: The brows look too straight, angular, and unnatural. There is no way you could go out with such brows.
Conclusion: The hack is not effective.
We wanted to try this idea, but since some soaps can cause very unpleasant effects when swallowed, such as diarrhea or vomiting, we decided against trying this tip.
This common beauty hack can also be very dangerous. Citric acid can cause serious skin burns, while cinnamon causes allergic reactions in some people. You should be very careful with such internet tips and triсks. Not all of them are useful.
