If you’re like me you’re always on the lookout for fast & fuss-free ways to get your pretty on. There are a wealth of clever “beauty hacks” out there and these are some of my favorites! These beauty tips and tricks are perfect for anyone trying to get the most out of their makeup. Some of them will save you money, some will help you get the look you want fast or on-the-go, and others will simply make your life easier! And we could all use some of that!
From simple household items to your usual beauty products, we have an alternate use for each one of them. Yes, you can use one product in so many different ways to tackle all your beauty problems and get the most out of them, instead of spending heavy bucks!
Here are some of the best beauty hacks to make your life simpler and lighter!
1. Plumping lips
Mix a little bit of peppermint oil or cinnamon essential oil into your liquid lipstick to get that plumping lips effect. The peppermint helps to stimulate the circulation under the lips and creates a swelling effect, thus making your lips appear fuller!
You can create a full, fake pout without makeup or surgery just by incorporating this beauty hack.
2. Blotting Paper
Use a coffee filter in place of expensive oil blotting sheets. This is a pretty cool hack for all my girls who have oily skin and need to pat that oil on the face all day long, it’s quite a struggle and spending on blotting paper is such a waste when you have a useful and cheap alternative. Yes, coffee filter and butter paperwork like any blotting paper!
3. Soft feet
Get smooth feet while you sleep! Apply moisturizer on cracked heels and put on some socks. And the best way to do this is to put Vaseline all over your feet; massage it for a good 2 to 3 minutes and then put on some cozy socks. You will wake up with baby soft feet, yes that’s our guarantee!
4. Foundation stains
You can fix foundation stains with a little bit of shaving cream. We hate it when we’re so into our makeup routine and accidentally drop some of that foundation on our clothes! But don’t worry; we’ve got the coolest hack for you girls: If you take off your shirt and accidentally smudge your makeup on the collar, just wipe a dollop of shaving cream on the spot to pre-treat it before tossing it in the wash.
5. Matte nails
Matte nails are the new trend! But are heavy on the pocket. All the broke and lazy girls are going to love this hack. Okay so it’s pretty simple, are you ready for it? Here we go: Just apply some cornstarch to a glossy nail polish to give it a matte finish. That’s all folks!
6. De-puff those eyes!
The quickest way to de-puffing and tightening your under-eye skin is to apply a cold, caffeine-based product, like two cold green-tea bags, under your eyes for five or six minutes. It’s quick, easy and always available in your kitchen. And if you’re like me who wakes up with a whole puffy face, looking like a football – well then, all you have to do is put one more pillow under your head. Yup, sleeping on two pillows stimulates circulation and you will wake up with a de-puffed face!
