80% of women feel insecure about their bodies. This statistic is shocking and needs to change!
In light of this, we thought we’d gather together a few simple beauty hacks that’ll save you time, money and make you feel a little more glamorous because whether you believe it or not, you’re worth it!
So without further ado let’s dive into our favorite beauty life hacks.
1. Use Green or Orange Concealer to Eliminate Redness
If you have any redness on your cheeks or a bulging pimple, dab a little green concealer on it.
Green is the complete opposite color of red which consequently evens the tone of your skin.
Once you’ve done this, you can continue with your usual makeup routine.
2. Spray Your Perfume, so It Lasts All Day
If you want to smell the sweet aroma of your perfume all day, then you should spritz your scent in the following places; your hair, belly button, behind your ears, behind your knees, inside your elbows, and down your back.
This may sound strange, but it’s true- try it out for yourself if you don’t believe us!
3. Triangles Not Circles
When applying concealer, it can be tempting to use it in a semi-circle style shape under the eye.
However, you should aim to create a triangular shape under your eyes. You’ll find this brightens the entire area and give you the appearance of being fresh-faced and ready to face the day (even if it’s too early to feel that way yet!)
4. Keep Makeup Remover Next to Your Bed
Out of all these beauty life hacks, this is probably the most obvious. Nonetheless, it’s a valuable nugget of advice, so we’re going to talk about it anyway.
By keeping makeup remover on your bedside table, you give yourself no excuses when it comes to wiping the day off your face.
As you probably already know, sleeping with a full face of makeup can lead to spots and skin infections – not cool.
Spending 20 seconds taking off your make up is probably worth it in the long run.
5. Make Your Manicure Last Longer
Is nail growth showing underneath your otherwise perfectly manicured nails? If so, you can create a glitter ombre effect by adding a glittery top coat at the base of your nails.
This is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to disguise your chipped and overgrown manicure.
Plus, it looks gorgeous!
6. Perfect Your Winged Liner
Getting your winged liner even on both eyes can be a tricky task. If mastering this look is too much for you, don’t worry, we have a solution for you- clean any wobbles by using a cue tip soaked in Vaseline. Easy!
7. Look Awake and Ready to Go
If you’re in need of a little enhancement to look more awake, merely apply nude eyeliner to your waterline.
This hack not only brightens your eyes but it also makes them more prominent.
8. Make Your Hair Do Last Longer
This is one of our favorite beauty life hacks.
If you’ve gone to the trouble of doing a fabulous blow dry, make it last more than a day by rolling your hair into a looped bun before going to bed and fasten with bobby pins.
In the morning when you release your hair you’ll have gorgeous vintage style waves. Lovely!
9. Don’t Have Time to Dry Your Hair?
If you don’t have time to blow dry your hair, we suggest twisting your hair into a very loose low bun and secure it with pins.
You can then go about your day as per usual and let your hair down once it’s dried. This should result in effortlessly bouncy waves.
10. Do the Heels of Your Feet Look Dry and Gross?
Don’t worry if they do; we’re not judging- it happens to the best of us!
To smooth out cracked heels treat yourself to a soothing overnight foot treatment.
Thoroughly coat each foot with heavy duty moisturizer and then pop a pair of cosey socks on. In the morning your tootsies will be silky smooth.
11. Never Get Lipstick on Your Teeth Again!
When you’ve finished applying your lipstick, stick your index finger in your mouth and pull it out.
You’ll find that any excess lipstick rubs off on your finger instead of your front teeth.
12. Make Your Tights Last Longer
Before wearing a new pair of tights be sure to stick them in the freezer for a while.
Allegedly, freezing tights strengthens the fibers which decrease the likelihood of them laddering.
13. Get Perfect Lashes
Do you find it hard not to get mascara on your skin when applying it to your lower lashes? If so, the humble teaspoon will become your new best friend.
By holding the spoon directly under your waterline while applying your mascara, you’ll prevent this from happening.
14. Make Your Eye Shadow Pop
Do you want more prominent looking eyeshadow? If so, cover your eyelids with white eyeliner before applying your usual eyeshadow – simple yet effective!
15. Make Your Lipstick Last Longer
If you want your lipstick to last longer, you need to hold a piece of tissue to your lips (after you’ve finished applying your lipstick) and dust a small amount of translucent powder over the tissue.
16. Make the Most out of Your Eyelash Curler
You’ll find that a warm eyelash curler works better than a room temperature one. To quickly heat your eyelash curlers use your hair dryer (only for a few seconds – you want it warm, not hot).
17. Get Vibrant Looking Skin and Nails
We need protein for fabulous looking skin and nails.
So, try to include clean whey protein in your diet. Whey protein is proven to help our bodies create both hormones and enzymes that give us amazing looking nails and skin!
