Gabs Gibbs’ And Jeline Catt’s Top 3 Hacks Will Change Your Beauty Game

Gabs Gibbs’ And Jeline Catt’s Top 3 Hacks Will Change Your Beauty Game


Stuck in a beauty rut? Two of our favorite Instagram beauty stars Gabs Gibbs and Jeline Catt have more than a few tricks up their sleeve.

Gabs Gibbs (@gabsgibbs)
Although initially gaining attention as one half of The Gibbs Guide with her equally gorgeous sister Chi, Gabs has started to carve her own path with her passion for all things beauty-related. From becoming a L’Oreal Philippines Ambassador to providing us with how-to makeup videos on YouTube, this girl has clearly found her calling. As Gabs likes to say, “Makeup is a mode of self-expression!”
1. Lipstick as blush

“These days, I’m all about that sunkissed glow. To achieve this, I also use my lipstick as my blush! I like using BARE MINERALS Gen Nude Radiant Lipstick in Tutu for this effect.” Perfect in time for the coming summer months!
2. Curl your bottom lashes
When asked about a favorite makeup hack, Gabs shares something many of us might not have heard of: curling your bottom lashes. “I’ve been curling my bottom lashes since I was in high school. I don’t recommend trying it if you’re not a professional but it does enhance your eye look even more!”
3. Don’t forget to moisturize!

“As I’ve gotten older, I learned more about the importance of knowing your skin type,” Gabs shares, adding, “Because I have dry skin, I learned that as long as the products I use on my face is moisturizing and has a lot of emollients, I’m good to go! Recently, I’ve been loving the LA MER Moisturizing Cream.”

Jeline Catt (@jelinecatt)
If Jeline’s name rings a bell, it’s probably because you’ve come across her blog, Sartorialust, or one of her beauty videos on her YouTube channel. However, she isn’t simply a blogger and a vlogger; as a stylist and creative director, she has also collaborated with brands such as TRESemme and Topshop. So, how does someone as busy as she is do it? “I like to start my day with meditation, followed by a morning workout. Doing this energizes me for the rest of the day,” Jeline says. For more of her hacks, read the beauty tips she shared with us below:
1. Sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen

Jeline stressed staying hydrated and wearing sunscreen daily to protect your skin. “I never encountered any major skin issues but I make sure to take care of my skin to make sure it’s in the best state it can be in. I swear by BIORE UV Aqua Rich Water Essence Sunscreen because it’s so important to protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun. I like how it’s lightweight and doesn’t leave a white cast on your face too.”
2. Minimum base for a maximum glow

Instead of a full face of foundation, Jeline likes to keep her base simple and uncomplicated. “I like to keep it at a minimum when it comes to my everyday makeup. I skip foundation and instead, I use URBAN DECAY Naked Skin Concealer in certain areas that need coverage, such as my under eyes.” To keep her skin glowing enough not to need foundation, she shares a beauty resolution she has this 2018: “I want to invest more in skincare rather than just make up!”
3. Achieve the perfect winged liner
Is evening out your eyeliner simply too frustrating for you? Jeline shares a smart hack for those of us who are perfectionists: “To create a clean cat eye or to wing out your eye shadow, I like to use tape as a guideline.”
