Everyone loves those days where their makeup routine goes smoothly and their hair sits calmly. But looking perfect often comes with extra time and effort, something most of us do not always have. But with these secrets that will save you time, money and hassle, looking your absolute best will be a breeze!
There is so much to know and learn about makeup, it can often be overwhelming. So whether you are a rookie or expert in the makeup and beauty department, here are some tips that can help improve your skills and have you looking flawless:
Clumpy Mascara Fix
Have you ever gone to apply your favorite mascara, only to find that it is getting a little chalky and powdery, or it is completely dried out? This has happened to the best of us.
Mascara has a short lifespan and is meant to be replaced in as little as two to three months. Luckily, a trick has been found that will extend its life and can turn your 3+ month-old mascara into a performer once again! Simply twist open the tube and add 1-2 drops of any brand of eye drops. Then mix it in with the wand…. and BOOM, you have got nearly new mascara.
Is It Really Just a Toothbrush?
So you are at the store for a new toothbrush, but instead of getting just one, it may be in your best interest to pick up the multi-pack because the toothbrush can assist your life in more ways than just scrubbing your teeth.
Along with the obvious cleaning of the pearly whites, it can also be the perfect lip exfoliator. The toothbrush scrapes off the dead skin with the simple additive of water. Another way to remove all of the dead skin buildup is the easy mixture of coconut oil and sugar. Again just scrub it onto your lips, with a toothbrush or finger, and in no time your lips will feel fresh and soft.
Not only is the toothbrush great for lip renewal, but it can also tame any wild hairs. With just a squirt of hairspray onto the brush, you can comb down any crazy flyaway’s in your hair or tame those disobedient brows once and for all.
Last, but certainly not least, is the trick of using a toothbrush to clean out the dust and grime underneath the nails. Just use the brushes bristles to clear out any old grime and soon your nails will look just as shiny as your teeth!
With the uses mentioned here, and numerous others to be discovered, the toothbrush may as well be known as the variety brush.
We have all used bobby pins and we have all had them slip out of place throughout the day. But do not worry, there is a super simple fix to this problem! Before using your bobby pins, lay them out on a paper towel and simply spray them down with hairspray. Now when the bobby pins are put into place they are sure to stick to your hair and stay in place all day.
Magic Matte Lips
Yes they are back in, and yes they are everywhere. The matte lip outbreak is upon us once again. Sadly, matte lipsticks seem to have less variety, not to mention building up a collection may be pricey. Fortunately, if you own a lipstick of any kind you can wear a matte lip.
First apply any lipstick shade you like to your lips. Then take a piece of tissue paper and remove one of the layers. Place another layer over your lips and then take a small amount of translucent powder and spread it onto a brush and apply over the tissue. Remove the tissue and your once shiny and glossy lip is now a beautiful and refined matte. You can apply more powder as needed to accomplish your desired effect. So whether you want to save a few bucks or cannot find the matte shade you hoped for, this trick is a great “go to” and will also give you longer lasting lipstick.
These are just a few beauty tips that can make everyday life so much easier, especially those busy mornings where you want to look perfect but do not have enough time.
