Here’s 10 more amazing beauty hacks every girl should know…
Want mega volume lashes?
This is a really simple trick. Simply dust your face with powder and then apply mascara at the roots of your lashes. This gives them an amazing voluminous look, even more so if you do it two-three times!
Have trouble with oily hair?
If you are one of those people who have oily hair then here’s a great way to disguise it. If you are blonde, always carry with you some baby powder or if you’re brunette a bronzer compact. Rubbing these into your hair is a great way to disguise oiliness. Alternatively, simply use a good quality dry shampoo!
Bring a powered compact back to life with rubbing alcohol
If you drop a powder compact, it can smash into tiny pieces that are impossible to use. So long as the broken pieces haven’t scattered all across the floor, don’t throw it away, because it can be saved. Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol to the broken pieces, and then smooth the paste back down into the compact. Leave it dry overnight, and voila, you will have one resurrected powder compact.
Super shiny lips…
If you want those super shiny lips that all the celebs seem to have then it is really easy to do and doesn’t involve really expensive products. All you need is some Vaseline to top up your lipstick with. You’ll instantly get extra shine and you can also use it on your cheekbones as a fantastically effective natural looking highlighter.
Are your nails stained from overusing dark nail polishes? There’s no need to panic. All you need to do is put your nails into lemon juice for a few minutes. The gentle acid action will have your nails looking bright again in no time.
Wild eyebrows? Vaseline to the rescue again!
Are your eyebrows a bit unruly? If so, don’t worry. All you need to do is rub some Vaseline on them and you will find all those unruly hairs tamed and in place. If you don’t have any vaseline, use hair gel, wax or any other hairstyling product. Even hairspray will do the trick!
Always use cold or lukewarm water to wash
Did you know that washing in water that is too hot can be bad for your hair and skin? Basically, the hotter the water, the more it can cause dryness and can also irritate the skin. Therefore, if you want your skin and hair to look their best then always wash, bathe and shower in lukewarm or cold water.
Need your nails to dry quick?
Dunk them in some ice cold water! Yes it really works! Nail polish dries when it encounters cool temperatures, so try freeze-drying your polish in place by using ice water.
Drink more water
One of the biggest causes of skin dryness, blemishes and blotches is dehydration. Most of us do not drink enough water. You don’t have to go overboard but just by replacing a couple of your daily coffees with a good sized glass of water will do wonders for your skin.
Take care of your diet
Along with drinking more water, eating a healthy diet is crucial to making your skin look better without having to resort to expensive makeup and treatments. Cutting down on sugar and carbs, eating healthy fats and lots of vegetables will give your skin a wonderful natural and healthy glow.
