Today, we’re walking you through some of our best-kept beauty secrets, serving a guide to mastering makeup tips at home. These simple steps and tools will give the illusion of salon-standard lips, brows and lashes. Oh, and if you’re uncertain of what specific enhancements will work for your distinct facial features, you can try on our beauty hacks via Maybelline’s virtual try on tool.
#1 Lash Extensions
Obsessed with the allure of long, full and fluttery eyelashes, but hesitant to risk the health of your lashes with extensions? Fair call. We’ve got just the product duo to replicate voluptuous lashes, all via simple makeup tips at home. First, build up a habitual routine of applying Maybelline’s Lash Sensational Serum every morning and/or night before bed. This targeted growth-enhancing serum is loved for its fast-acting effects, promoting thicker and fuller lashes within just four weeks. Next up comes our instant lash-lengthener: the Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara. This jett-black lacquer gives long lashes without extensions or the need to book in for a lash perm, meaning you can simply wash off its brilliant eye-opening magic and reapply when desired.
#2 Eyebrow Tint
Maybelline’s beauty range covers the ultimate eyebrow tint at home. You retain complete control of the tinting process, free from the time and stress of an appointment. A brow revolution, our Tattoo Brow 3 Day Gel-Tint only needs to be on for 20 minutes before peeling it off to reveal fuller, darker, defined eyebrows. That tint will only be semi-permanent, lasting for roughly three days before you can either repeat the process, or keep things natural. Your face-framers will also be left nourished by the moisturising properties of Aloe Vera and Royal Jelly. And the best bit? It’s all done within moments, without having to even leave your bathroom.
#3 Brow Shaping
The fastest and most effective way to sculpt professionally-perfected eyebrows at home is with an at home brow stick. Our Tattoo Studio Brow Lift Stick is the equivalent of an instantaneous brow lift at home. This brow tidier allows for effortless shaping and defining of unruly brow hairs, combing and colouring your eyebrows into sleek silhouettes. Making this one of the best makeup tips at home, the tinted wax works to fill in sparse areas while the brow-lifter brush gives immaculate shape in a matter of swipes.
#4 Brow Lamination
Brow lamination makeup has become an increasingly popular way of styling brows to their fullest potential in the last couple of years. While salon experiences offer semi-permanent brow laminations, some people may want to swap between a more natural brow from day-to-day, and a laminated brow for certain occasions. If that’s you, one of the greatest makeup tips at home is taking a bar of soap and a wet spooly brush to push your eyebrow hair upwards (like in a professional brow lam). This will mimic the hold and shape of a brow lamination, but easily wash out when you’re ready to resume your natural look.
#5 Fuller Lips
Achieving plumper, glossier lips doesn’t require cosmetic procedures. You can create bigger lips in a second with Maybelline’s Lifter Gloss Hydrating Lip Gloss. This wonder-gloss is formulated with Hyaluronic Acid to replenish dry lips, while a range of warm-toned colours work to enhance your lips’ contour and natural hue. Fuller lips without filler? Yes please.
#6 Teeth Whitening
Whether it’s before a crucial presentation, a big celebration or just a conscious daily habit, whiter and brighter teeth is one of the most beautiful features we can flaunt. Maybelline’s makeup trove contains lipstick shades to elevate your pearly whites. One of the easiest, swiftest makeup tips at home is applying a blue-toned shade to your pout from our Super Stay 24® Lipcolor range. This particular tone of red is loved for its smile-enhancing properties, maximising brightness with some clever colour-play.
