10 Beauty hacks that will make you look like a million bucks
Quick fixes to everyday problems, ways to make makeup go further or tips passed down through the generations, you can never get enough beauty hacks. So, here are ten of our top beauty hacks that will help make you look like a million dollars:
1. Fix fake tan mistakes
When you get too much fake tan on one part of your skin, you can easily tone down the orange with a quick wipe of the area with some cotton wool, soaked in some liquid makeup remover.
2. Bring a touch of colour to your face
When you’ve got no blusher with you, but your cheeks are looking a bit pale, apply a spot of bright lipstick to the apples of your cheeks and then blend outward.
3. Prepare your nails with vinegar
For a smooth, bubble free finish to your nail polish, swipe your nails with some vinegar on a cloth before you apply the polish. The vinegar will remove any stubborn, old polish that has been left behind and will clean off any oil form nails too.
4. Warm up an eyelash curler before using
Your eyelash curler will work a lot better if you slightly warm it up first. Just blast the curlers with the blow dryer for a few seconds and the curl in your lashes will be more pronounced it will last for longer. Be careful and gentle.
5. Use baby powder as a dry shampoo
It’s an oldie, but it can be a real lifesaver, so it still gets a mention here. At a pinch, when you haven’t got time to wash your hair, baby powder makes a great alternative to dry shampoo.
6. Clear blackheads with baking soda
Here’s a simple, homemade mask that will soon make blackheads nothing more than a memory. Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with the juice of an orange and apply it in the same way as you would a mask, but apply only on the area affected with black heads, and leave it on for about five minutes, before washing off with warm water.
7. Define your lips with concealer
A touch of concealer to the skin, at the corners of your mouth and to the indented area between your nose and your mouth, will help to bring out your smile and give you a more defined cupid’s bow.
8. Dry nails fast
Here’s another beauty hack for when you are running out of time. If you just painted your nails, plunge your fingers into a bowl of cold water and it will dry the polish super fast.
9. Fix split ends without a trip to the hairdresser
You can make split ends look healthy again by pinching the ends of your hair with your fingers with a little leave in conditioner or body lotion on them. It will keep the split ends hidden, until you get a trim.
10. Create your own custom lip gloss
To create your own custom lip gloss mix some loose eyeshadow pigment that you like with a little bit of Shea butter in a teaspoon and then apply it with your lip brush, as you would a lip gloss.
