On the days when our skin is looking a little less than perky due to a few too many late nights, red wines and not getting our recommended eight glasses of water a day, it is deeply upsetting to be faced with the reality that an immediate face-lift with no surgery or downtime required has yet to be invented. And honestly, we’re starting to feel personally attacked.
Thankfully, beauty guru Chloe Morello has got our back, developing a genius technique for faking a lifted visage without having to go through the stress of having your face rearranged by a plastic surgeon. Phew, way to come through sis.
Turns out the secret has absolutely nothing to do with fiddling with your face – mind blown. It’s actually all about the hair with this one, and as Chloe demonstrates in the handy instructional video below, the technique is actually quite simple:
Split the hair into two sections like a half-up half-down type of ‘do, then take a small section of hair from either side of your head and fasten them together at the back of your head using a small hair band. Tightening the mini ponytail you’ve just created to achieve your desired level of lift and then release the top section of hair to hide all your handiwork. Et voila – feline features in a flash.
Chloe’s got all the secrets. Here’s what she does for perfectly flawless foundation.
