We all are aware of the health and beauty benefits that we get from drinking water. Be it your weight loss regime or beauty routine, none of them is ever complete without this magical liquid. But, do you also know that this wonderful gift from nature can also be used in many ways in your makeup routine? And, if you are thinking that the only way it can be used for makeup is for wiping it clean, then your opinion is going to change soon.
So, without making you wait anymore, let us give you some awesome ideas on how you can use water for fresh, flawless and long lasting makeup.
#1. For setting your makeup
Instead of buying expensive makeup setting sprays from the market, just buy a spray bottle. Fill it with water and a bit of glycerine. Just spray a litlle amount of this solution on your face after your makeup is done. It will set the makeup as soon as it dries, and will give you a fresh and natural look. Well, would you still want to spend money on setting sprays when you have a better alternative in the comfort of your home?
#2. As a cleanser
Water is undoubtedly the best natural cleanser. Unlike many other chemical-based cleansers, it removes the impurities of your skin in the safest manner. All you have to do is just add a few rose petals in a bottle of water and keep it aside for a few days. And there you have it, your very own natural, gentle and effective skin cleanser.
#3. For making new eyeliner colours
If you do not want to spend money on buying expensive coloured eyeliner, then here is a very economic idea for you. Simply add a few drops of water in your favourite colour of eyeshadow. And, there you have a homemade coloured eyeliner of your choice. Just apply it with a pointed makeup brush and get ready to flaunt your glamorous eye makeup.
#4. For blending foundation cracks
If not applied correctly, then the foundation cream might appear quite cakey on your face after some time. Well, if this ever happens to you, do not panic. Just dab some water on a makeup sponge or brush, and gently sweep it back and forth on your face to make the foundation blend.
#5. For correcting flaky liners
Sometimes, your eyeliner might not be applied in a neat and even manner. This might happen due to the friction caused by the application of a powdered eyeshadow on your eyelids. Also, if your eyeliner has got quite old, then it might get little dry and make it difficult to achieve a neat stroke. Well in such case, just add a few drops of water to your eyeliner or dip the brush or liner pencil in water before dipping it in the liner. And, you will surely see the difference!
#6. For long-lasting eyeshadow
The eyeshadow usually becomes dull after a few hours of their application. If you want them to look fresh, dark, glossy and intensified for long hours, then gently dab the eyeshadow brush in water and then apply it. The results will amaze you!
#7. Cleaning your makeup brushes
Not cleaning your makeup brushes regularly can cause skin infections. Also, the dirty brushes can totally spoil your look as the makeup particles and dust, which might have settled in them, would mix up with your fresh makeup. So, use water to help you out here as well. Just spray water on a piece of tissue and whisk the brushes on it. Let them dry on their own thereafter. You can also soak them in a solution of hot water and a small quantity of baby shampoo. Rine them with clean water after some time. And, your clean and sanitised brushes will be ready for use yet again.
Who knew that something as simple and readily available as water could help you out in so many ways? So, the next time you have any of the above problems while putting on makeup, let water come to your rescue right away!
