We all have a lot to thank for SnapChat’s creators. We can now look how we want without even putting on makeup. The app is not only popular among teens, but also adults who would like to post effortless pictures of themselves and have some fun. Whether you’re heading out for a party or are trying on a new costume for a themed event, you might be able to recreate the SnapChat filter at ease, using advanced makeup and cosmetic techniques. There are some great ways to enlarge your eyes, make your skin look flawless, or simply get fuller lips. Below you will find a few tips on how to achieve SnapChat results without filters.
There are plenty of techniques used by makeup artists to enlarge your eyes. One of them is light eye shadow and the careful contouring. You might want to ditch the regular black eyeliner and opt for something lighter, too. Glitter eyeliners can help you create the perfect look any time. You might also want to try gold, silver, or even white eyeliners. It will give you a more natural look, and you don’t have to worry about smudging it, either. You might even combine the light eyeliner on the inside with a darker shade on the outside to create a dramatic look and get the larger eyes you love on SnapChat.
You can easily remove wrinkles and fine lines using a SnapChat filter, but in real life it is much more complicated. There are some beauty hacks you can use, though. There are plenty of face masks that will make your skin smoother and free from blemishes and wrinkles. You must, however, understand your problem completely to find the right solution. Once you have studied various cosmetic interventions, such as forehead lift and collagen treatments, you can choose the one that suits your budget and your problem.
We all love those cute pink cheeks, but recreating them and looking like Snow White is not that easy. You will have to ditch your regular contour and opt for a bright blusher. Instead of a horizontal line, you need to have a large makeup brush (not sponge) and apply the blusher in one place, right on your cheekbones. This will be a great makeup for a schoolgirl outfit or a fairy tale themed party as well. Don’t overdo it, though, or you will look more like a clown.
We all want fuller lips, and as time goes by, we are losing collagen. If you would like to get rid of the signs of aging, scrubbing your lips might be a great idea. You can use natural facial scrubs or special lotions for your lips that deliver just enough collagen to make you look younger and sexier at the same time. You might also try face yoga that will improve the circulation of your face, especially around your eyes and your lips, so you can naturally stimulate collagen production and get long term results.
If you have always considered yourself to be cursed as your face is not the perfect narrow heart shape, you can create an optical illusion through makeup and hair. Your hairstyle will make a huge difference. If you have a wide or round face, you should avoid short fringes and try no fringe or side bangs. However, your contour can also help you look slimmer, at least on your face. There are some great contour tutorials for round face that will help you achieve the right results.
Don’t you wish you could apply the perfect eyeshadow just like SnapChat? If you are not an artist and often get this step of doing your makeup wrong, you can get some help. There are stencils that will help you create a symmetric look and stay within the lines, so you don’t overdo the makeup. Generally, you will have to use darker shades closer to your eyes, and gradually reduce the intensity of the color as you are moving further. However, you can also combine two colors to create a distinctive look.

Are you heading out to a funky party and would like to get noticed? Opt for much darker colors than you generally choose and make sure that you have plenty of glitter makeup handy. You can add shimmer by using more oily makeup and foundation and simply leaving the mineral matt powder out. You can add glitter to your lips and eyelids, and don’t forget about those super long lashes with the gems or feathers to complete this look.
Are you going to dress as Poirot or a sad character from Alice in Wonderland? You will need some unusual eyebrow shapes that will make you stand out and give you a sad and sarcastic look. If you are not confident that you can do the shapes to look the same on both sides, it might be a good idea to use eyebrow stencils and fill in the area with the right color. You can have upside down eyebrows or square ones, depending on your costume. You might even add some color to it or define the shape using different, contrasting shades.
If you love the decoration SnapChat adds to your selfies, you can invest in some cosmetic gems that will hold all night, even if you are planning to dance until the morning light. Add gems to your eyebrows, eyelashes, and even on your lips. Complete the image by getting shiny beads braided in your hair. Gems can be a great addition to any makeup and are much easier to remove than piercings.
If you would like to recreate some of the SnapChat filters for a fancy dress party or just for fun, you might need some special items for your makeup bag. Start experimenting and see how close you can get to the images you have posted online and impress your friends at the same time.
No matter what, have fun! xx
