As part of the blogging community, I always am on the look out for new tips, tricks and quick hacks to make life easier. All the hacks I have come across, seem to be jotted down in numerous notebooks: 1 – so I don’t forget them and 2 – to be able to share with my lovely readers. Here are 10 more to save time, money and to leave you feeling fabulous. 1. Apply concealer in a triangle shape under the eyes.
This will cover dark circles and highlight those cheekbones.
2. Warm your eyelash curlers with a hairdryer.
Lashes will remain curled all day. Paired with a fabulous mascara, this is a winning combination. I am personally loving Benefit’s Rollerlash at the moment.
3. Want intense eyeshadow?
Prep your eyelids with a white eyeshadow/eyeliner and your shadow will appear more intense and much brighter.
4. Want perfume to stay put?
Rub Vaseline on your pulse points and spritz. The fragrance will stick to the balm, leaving you smelling great all day.
5. Recycle old eye shadows.
Crush into loose powder and mix with a clear nail polish for your own bespoke nail colour.
6. Stained nails?
Mix baking soda and water. Soak fingertips for ten minutes. Voila! Stains will fade.
7. Dry skin under your nose?
Rub a little lip balm before applying makeup. This will soften the skin and stop your foundation sticking to the dry skin.
8. Dried up mascara?
Place the tube into a cup of boiling water for 10 minutes. The formula will soften and be as good as new. 9. Whiten teeth with Strawberries Mash strawberries in a bowl. Mix in a pinch of baking soda and brush teeth as normal. I have tried this and it works. 10. Use raw honey as a face mask With its antibacterial properties, honey is a rich, indulgent treat for the skin. Simply apply a thin layer to the face, leave for 5 minutes and then rinse.
