10 Everyday beauty tips and makeup hacks that will simplify your life
Do you want the secret to beautiful makeup every day that doesn’t take hours to perfect? Read this article for 10 simple tips that will make your makeup look as though it took all morning:
1. White eye shadow will make your colors more vibrant
If you want bright, fancy eye makeup, do a layer of white eyeshadow (or use soft white eye pencil) underneath, before adding the eyeshadow color you want, to make it stand out a lot more. This will also stop your eyeshadow from rubbing off throughout the day.
2. Coconut oil does wonders for your hair
There are several ways to use coconut oil in your hair. You can leave it in overnight like a treatment, apply some while in the shower or just rub some into your hair when it’s dry. If you have thick or dry hair, it is the best thing for de-tangling and moisturising. If you’re having trouble brushing your locks, put some coconut oil in and try again to see instant results. It will not only make your hair feel really soft, but it will also add beautiful shine and luster. The only warning is that, if you apply too much, your hair might look like it’s wet all day – but it will still feel great!
3. Use a spoon to prevent getting mascara on your skin
If you’re messy with mascara, holding a spoon behind your eyelashes while you apply it will stop any getting on your eyelid. It is the perfect shape for doing this and will work on top and bottom lashes.
4. Oil pulling
Coconut oil is going to make the list again but this time, not for your hair. Another one of great beauty tips is to use coconut oil for your teeth. As well as fantastic oral benefits, it is one of the fastest and safest ways to whiten your teeth. Simply put a spoonful of oil in your mouth and swish it all around and in between your teeth for ten minutes before spitting it out. You’ll see results within a few days.
5. Applying glue to false lashes
Fake eyelashes can be one of those fiddly things that are difficult to apply but if you put your glue to the end of a bobby pin and use that to apply it to the lashes, it’ll be a lot easier and cleaner to use.
6. Conceal dark circles under eyes
The best way to cover up tired and puffy eyes is to apply your concealer in an upside triangle shape directly under your eyes and seamlessly blend it in. This will make your face look young and bright. This is one of those beauty tips that celebrities love to use all the time!
7. Dry your nails faster
Some nail polishes can take hours to fully dry. Here is one of wonderful beauty tips and tricks that can save you time: if you just can’t sit still for that long, submerge freshly painted nails in cold water for a few minutes. When you pull them out, they’ll be dry and shiny.
8. Smoother application of eyeliner
Eyeliner pencils can be a little tricky to apply smoothly. Try holding a lighter under the tip for a second; the heat will make it much softer and easier to use. Only make sure that your eye pencil is not too hot when you apply it.
9. Make nail polish out of unused eyeshadow
If you have eyeshadows that just going to waste, because they’re too dark or bold, you can turn them into nail polish by crushing the powder up and mixing it into clear nail polish. Try it!
10. Smooth out your lips
If your lips are a bit dry and flaky, apply our old favorite coconut oil and brush them with a soft toothbrush. It will make them softer and can even plump them up a little bit. Add your lipstick over the top for flawless, smooth looking lips.
