Beauty hacks, tips and tricks

Hello beauties,

Today I’m going to share some of my favourite beauty hacks, or you could call them tips and tricks.

Those who know me well know that I am obsessed with ‘hacks’! Life hacks, beauty hacks, cleaning/organization hacks you name it I’ve probably tried them all!
I will happily sit for hours and watch hacks videos on YouTube, well.. because I have no life obviously… There is just something so entertaining about them.
So without further rambling, lets get onto it…..

Using baby powder for oily hair instead of dry shampoo

Now I definitely love me a good dry shampoo however this is a goody and an oldy that I have been doing since school days (that’s a long time ago for those wondering) well and truly before ‘dry shampoos’ were even a thing.
The tip with this one is to put the powder onto a brush and brush it through your hair.
You want to make sure you don’t have any visible powder anywhere on your head of course. And don’t use too much you don’t want to look like you are going grey!

 

Drying nails under cold running water 

to use
When I first started doing this I hadn’t read about it anywhere I was just in a rush one day and thought why not try drying them in cold water.
This hack is obviously great for those people like myself that do not have the patients to sit around and wait for nails to dry and even when I do spend the extra time drying I still always manage to knock them on something and ruin all that hard work!

 

Hairspray on a spooly to tame and set brows in place

Now you could just use a brow gel or something along those lines but when your all out or want to try something else then this one works great.
Using a clean spooly (which you can buy in bulk at most drug stores/pharmacies) spray some hair spray onto the spooly and then comb through your eyebrows, style them the way you want and they should be good to stay like that all day long.

 

Line your waterline with a white eyeliner to make your eyes appear bigger and brighter

Using a white eyeliner in your waterline can create the illusion of bigger eyes, just as using black eyeliner on the bottom waterline can close your eyes in and make them look smaller. So try accentuating your eyes with this hack

 

Clean your makeup brushes often

Okay so this tip really is a no brainer but I myself cannot even take this tip on board, I definitely do clean my brushes… but often? Nope! Just being honest!
I clean my brushes when I notice they need washing this could be around every 2 to 3 months. However I don’t use my brushes daily.
One of the main reasons you should clean your makeup brushes is they harbor bacteria and then you go and use that brush and wipe it all over your face! And that ladies and gentlemen is how you get breakouts! So go get cleaning!!

 

Fixing broken makeup with rubbing alcohol

Now this one I have not yet tried but have been meaning to do so. I have a broken eyeshadow that I want to save. And I think this is an awesome trick to save any powder product that could crack and break.
The idea is to break your product up into a fine powder and then add some rubbing alcohol and press back into container and let it dry. I am going to attempt this myself one day soon and will make a post on it so stay tuned for that one.

 

Well that’s it for my favourite beauty hacks, hope you enjoyed the read and even try some out yourself, if you do let me know in the comments or if you use these hacks already let me know.
If you have any other great hacks I’d love you to share them with me in the comments, I’m always on the lookout for more hacks!
