Beauty hacks were such a thing a few years ago and I feel like they all just disappeared! I’m like, hey girl, I’m still tryna get my daily glow up, where’d all my hacks go?! I love a simple trick to make my routine easier and more efficient, so I put together my top 10 for y’all!
1. DRY MASCARA WAND MAGIC.
If you are ever applying mascara and some of it gets onto your eyelid, just grab a clean, dry spoolie and use it to brush off the mascara! It literally comes RIGHT. OFF. Straight up magic! Don’t knock it til ya try it!
2. IT’S A BEAUTY TRICK, NOT A BOOBIE TRICK.
Y’all I came up with this myself and I feel like a straight up GENIUS. If you’re worried about getting blisters, just grab a nip cover (aka sticky boob), cut it into the right size, and stick it where you’d usually get the blister! It’s perfect for blister prevention, it sticks right on because they have adhesive backing already, and they are skin colored so they blend right in! Beauty hacks amiright?! *drops mic*
3. FAKE UR LIP INJECTIONS.
Want some fuller lips? Just take your lip liner and draw a little hump between the two points of your cupid’s bow – connect the dots! Then fill it in and you’re good to go! People in the street gonna be stopping in their tracks like “‘SCUZE ME – Kylie Jenner?!”
4. TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN.
Girl, there’s a big chance you’ve been using bobby pins wrong for a long time! The textured half should be facing down so that it can grab your hair more easily and stay put for longer! It might be simple, but if you’re tired of bobby pins falling out of your hair, it’s a beauty hack worth having.
5. PUT A TOP COAT ON IT.
Nails chipping like crazy? Girl I started getting gels because I just couldn’t DEAL with that nonsense anymore! But when I have to wear normal polish, I try to apply a top coat every few days. It seals it all in and helps so much more if you do it regularly rather than just doing it once!
6. STRIP THAT DOWN.
Lol Liam Payne reference anyone?? I get blackheads around my nose all the time and I love using the Biore Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. Before you apply it, splash warm water on your nose to open up your pores. Remember, warm water opens pores, cold water closes’em. it’s always so satisfying and disgusting seeing all of them on the strip lol.
7. YOUR SCALP NEEDS LOVIN TOO!
Our scalps can get so gross because of all of the hair products we’re always using, and sometimes normal shampoo doesn’t do the trick. Every once in a while, I use tea tree oil and jojoba oil and massage it into my scalp. Tea tree oil has bacteria-fighting properties to help keep your scalp healthy!
8. ONE LESS BRUSH TO BUY.
Why do we need like 69 makeup brushes to do one look?! This hack will cut down on one! Grab your powder brush and place a bobby pin right across it, pinned the brush fibers into a straight line. Oila! You have a contour brush!
9. POP IT, LOCK IT, POLKA DOT IT.
Want your eyeshadow to pop more? Apply a white or white-nude eyed show base first! It helps the colors you apply on top to be more vibrant and even helps it to stay on longer.
10. I BRUSH MY HAIR BACK AND FORTH.
When you’re shaping your brows, brush all of the hairs down, and then take the pencil and line the upper portion of your brow all the way to the outer edge. Then brush the hairs UP, and outline the bottom half. SHABAM! Perfectly shaped brows!
