When people look back to life before quarantine, it is easy to see how fast-paced living allowed little-to-no room for any time to relax and take a breather. Everyone seems to be rushing to transportation stops, catching project deadlines, or drilling school work. Most people have been accustomed to this setup which is why in today's scenario, people start to feel fidgety when there are free slots on their daily schedule.

One way to make use of any spare time is by learning life hacks—kitchen hacks, laundry hacks, gaming hacks, or even hair and makeup hacks. For makeup aficionados, trying out new beauty tips is always a good way to spend any excess time. Check out these eye-centric beauty hacks you can try today.

Use petroleum jelly

Before putting on mascara, apply a bit of petroleum jelly onto the lashes and spread evenly. This will allow the mascara to glide through smoothly and avoid any clumps.

Powder your eyelashes

After the first application of mascara, lashes may still look a bit incomplete. But with a few dabs of powder before a second coat of mascara, lashes will significantly look a lot fuller and fluffier.

Heat your lash curler

To get eyelashes to curl faster and hold longer, heating the lash curler with a hairdryer is a favorite tip among many makeup artists. Just make sure that the curler is not too hot before using on your lashes.

Connect the dots

Putting on eyeliner is perhaps one of the most challenging parts of applying eye makeup. Not to worry as this tip has been proven by several first-time makeup users. Simply put dots along the edges of your eyes and follow through it with your eyeliner.
