We have ways to save you money, ways to save you time and some surprising new ways to use some old products. Read our top 100 beauty hacks and tips and let us know if we have missed any of your favourites:
1. Make your own eyeliner gel
Gel eyeliners are great, but they can be a bit more expensive than eye pencils. You can get the same effect though, by heating the tip of an eye pencil with the flame from a lighter or a match and then, use an eyeliner brush to apply it, just as you would apply regular gel eyeliner. Just be sure that you only warm the pencil though, and make sure it is cool enough to use on your eyes.
2. Make lipstick last longer
Here is one of the especially useful beauty tips for when you go out: to stop your lipstick from smudging and rubbing off, blot the lipstick (after applying it) with some tissue paper and then, apply a light dusting of translucent powder. Repeat a couple of times to get the intensity that you want. The powder will set the lipstick and make it last a whole lot longer.
3. Create your own wonderful lip balm
This simple recipe for a lip balm is just as effective as the store bought kind and 100% natural. Gently melt the following ingredients over a low heat and then allow it to cool before using: 1 tablespoon beeswax, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon shea butter, 2 drops rose essential oil (or use any other essential oil of your choice).
4. Homemade bronzer
Try this wonderful beauty tip and create your own homemade bronzer to give you a bit of summer glow. Mix together 1 teaspoon of cocoa, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of cornstarch (or add more of cornstarch, depending on how dark you want your bronzer to be) and add 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and you have a homemade loose bronzer! It’s that easy!
5. Use a credit card to apply mascara
This is one of the popular beauty tips that many makeup artists often use: hold a credit card (or any other card) up to your lashes, when you apply your mascara and it will give you an easy way to get the mascara right up to the roots of your lashes, without smudging. Just be sure to wipe the credit card clean again, before you use it in a store!
6. Stop razors rusting
This beauty tip can help you keep your razors clean and rust free: coat them with a little olive oil after each use. The oil will keep the air from getting to the razor and stop the metal from oxidising.
7. The secret to perfect smoky eyes
This is one of the most useful beauty tips for ladies who particularly love the smoky eyes makeup look: to stop the shades from becoming mixed together and creating an unsightly muddy look, always use a different, clean brush for blending. Remember too to clean the brushes, when you move from one eye to the other.
8. Use eyeshadow to get full lips
If you love full looking lips but you don’t want to do any cosmetic surgery, here is one of the good and efficient beauty tips that can help you: apply your lipstick as usual and then go over it with a coat of a pale shade of frosted, shimmery eyeshadow, concentrating in the middle of your lips; it will help add dimension to your pout and will give your lips a much fuller look, without lip injections. If you want to achieve even better effect then slightly outline your lips with the lip liner of similar colour to your natural lip colour and this will make your lips appear even bigger!
9. Use a spray starch as a dry shampoo
Are you in a rush and run out of dry shampoo? No problem, here is another one of effective beauty tips that will help: grab some spray of starch and spray that on the oily parts of your hair.

The baby powder will thicken up the mascara and make your lashes look much fuller and longer. Try!
13. Beat the bugs with dryer sheets

14. Soothe bikini line rash with camomile teabags

It works in just the same way as applying heat to the hair on your head does. Only make sure that the curler is not too hot, we don’t want to burn ourselves! Also, don’t use this trick too often, only on special occasions, or, otherwise, you can damage your lashes with an overdose of heat.
17. Brighten up your eyes from the corners

You can make your standard whitening toothpaste more effective by sprinkling a little baking soda on top of it, before you brush. Baking soda is a very effective tooth polish and it will get into the hard to reach parts of the teeth better than just toothpaste alone. You can use this treatment occasionally, just as you would use any other teeth whitening treatment, but avoid using baking soda on a daily basis, as it can also damage your teeth.
