Beauty Tricks To Do With A Spoon
When it comes to beauty tools, it looks more like an investment. We spent a hefty amount on professional sponges, brushes and other tools. Not that investing in these is bad, infact these are must for any makeup lover to get that perfect makeup look. But not everybody’s pocket allows spending thousands of bucks on makeup tools.
You will be glad to know that the best beauty tools aren’t always the ones you buy in the makeup department paying oodles of money. You can use tea bags, scotch tape, business cards and more to revitalize everything from your face to your nails. But have you ever given a thought to this one household item that wins the whole household beauty tool game. The awesome household tool that I am talking about is “SPOON”. You can do a lot with this curvy tool.
Today I shall share some great beauty tricks to do with the help of a Spoon.
Curl Your Eyelashes
When your eyelash curler is nowhere to be soon, you can use a metal spoon to curl your lashes. Place the curved edge right above your top lashes with the back of the spoon against your eyelid. With your finger, lightly press your lashes against the edge to mimic the clamp of an eyelash curler. This will create a bend in the lashes and leave you with curled lashes. Move the edge of the spoon out along the lashes and continue pressing. For a more dramatic curl, heat the spoon up a bit with a blow dryer first.
The perfectly matching shape of a spoon with the eyelids is something you can benefit from while you glam up your eyelashes. Similar to using a business card, use the bottom of a spoon as a barrier between your lashes and skin. Just cover your eyelids with the spoon while applying mascara. This will not only help you to keep the eye shadow intact, but will also help in avoiding those mascara spots that are often visible on the eyelid. You can use the same trick while applying mascara on the lower eyelash. With this trick say no to mascara smudge.
Heal A Pimple
Help heal a new pimple by applying a warm spoon to it until it cools off. Run hot water over the spoon, and test the temperature on the back of your hand before applying it to your face. Running spoon under warm water will warm your spoon. Once the spoon is warm enough, place it on your pimple. Hold on until the spoon cools off.
Contour Your Face
Contouring is quite a tricky thing to do that can easily go wrong in case of lack of practice. How about making it easier? The spoon is a perfect tool for contouring. Place the concave side of the spoon on the apples of your cheek. The area just below the spoon is the one that needs contouring. So, now you know the area where to apply contour product.
Reduce Under Eyes Puffiness
Woke up with puffy under eye bags!!! Worry not, simply throw two spoons in the freezer while you get ready for your day and once they’re cold, gently glide them underneath your eyes from the inner to outer corners. The gliding movement will help drain the fluid that’s pooling underneath your eye, while the cold spoon will help minimize any puffiness.
Push back Your Cuticles
Use the tip of a spoon to gently push back your cuticles at the ease of your home when there’s no time for your monthly manicure. All you need to do is to simply run your hands under warm water for 10-15 seconds and pat dry. Now without applying too much pressure use the tip of a spoon to gently push back your cuticles. Ta da you are done.
Create A Cat-Eye
The hardest part of creating a cat-eye is keeping your lines straight and keeping them equal for both the eyes. Perfect your cat eye by using the handle of a spoon to assist you in drawing a straight, winged line, then flip the spoon and use the rounded edge to create the curved tip!
Prep Skin For Foundation
A chilled metal spoon is a great tool for pre-foundation. Take a chilled spoon (not frozen, or it will stick to your skin), and slowly run it along fine lines, following the direction of the facial lines. Repeat this a few times and then immediately after this apply your foundation. This trick temporarily “flattens” and “smoothens” your skin which allows smooth foundation application and prevent it from caking in the lines.
Get Perfectly Arched Eyebrows
Align the curve of the spoon to your brow to get the perfect arch. The curve of a large spoon is the perfect shape for an eyebrow arch. Line up the curve of the spoon underneath your brow, and lightly trace around it with a brow pencil. Use this line as a guide, and begin filling in your brows above it with light strokes. There you have perfectly arched eyebrows.
