If you’ve ever wondered why my hair is so big, it’s cause it’s full of beauty hacks. LOL. These little tricks have made my life a little easier, so I thought I’d share.. hope it helps
- Makeup stains
If you take off your shirt and accidentally smudge your makeup on the collar, just put a few drops of shaving cream on the spot to pretreat it before throwing it in the wash.
- Curling your lashes
Heat your eyelash curler with a blow dryer for about 30 seconds, as blowing hot air on your eyelash curler will help your lashes curl easier and stay curled longer. It works the same way as when your hair holds a curl with a curling iron; heat changes the pattern of your hair. But wait until it cools slightly but is still warm before applying it, since you probably don’t wanna burn your lashes off LOL.
- Sharp eyeliner
If you’re one of those people who is terrible at getting their liquid liner to look even, place the edge of a piece of tape in line with your bottom lash line and angle the top toward the end of your eyebrow. And follow the line of the tape for perfect eyeliner (this can also be used for achieving that cut crease eyeshadow look).
- Controlling flyaways
If you’re like me and have major fly aways in your hair, spray hairspray on a cheap toothbrush (obviously not the one you use for your actual teeth…) and brush down the little hairs. This will keep them in place all day! You can also use the same technique on your eyebrows, instead of using a brow gel.
- Oily hair
It’s a well known fact that washing your hair every day is damaging, so what is one with oily hair supposed to do? Add 3 tablespoons of salt to your bottle of shampoo, and it’ll keep your roots clean for longer.
- No more shaving cream
Your days of buying shaving cream are over. Instead use hair conditioner over the areas you want to shave and then go in with your razor. I can promise you will literally have the softest smoothest legs ever. Thank me later.
- Sniff worthy hair
Take your favourite perfume and spray it on a hair brush, then brush it through your hair a few times. The smell will last much longer than spritzing it on your skin, plus your hair will smell amazing.
- Make your own lip plumper
Instead of dishing out $40 bucks for a lip plumper, buy a little bottle of peppermint oil and mix it with lip gloss to give the same plumping effect.
ps. My friends over at reviews.com tested a bunch of hair dryers on the market right now and decided on the best ones. So if you’re looking for a new one, defintely give their reviews a read (here).
