For many women, the morning beauty routine can be very time-consuming, and there’s always a need to find tips and tricks that will produce the right results with less effort.
Here are 19 beauty tricks that will save you time and produce great results.
Dilute Foundation With Oil or Moisturizer
If you find that your foundation is too thick, add some moisturizer or oil to liquefy it. Liquid bronzer also works well if you want to give your skin a little hint of color as well.
Use Oils For Waterproof Makeup
For an effective way of removing waterproof makeup, try some coconut oil or olive oil.
Essential Oils For Plump Lips
To plump up your lips and give them more shine, try using some cinnamon and peppermint essential oils.
Brighten Skin With Baking Soda
To give your face a lovely glow, wash it with baking soda twice a week (but no more than twice a week since baking soda can affect the pH of the skin).
Revive Your Mascara
Revive dried-up mascara by adding a few drops of saline solution to it.
Restore Broken Mascara
If you’ve got broken eyeshadow or powder, add some rubbing alcohol to it, smooth it out and then allow it to dry overnight. You’ll be back in business.
Liven Up Nail Polish
For old nail polish that is getting too thick, add a little warm water to get it back to its regular consistency.
Hairspray Tames Eyebrows
For those unruly eyebrows, spray some hairspray onto a toothbrush and then brush your eyebrows to keep them in place.
Dry Shampoo Options
If you have light to medium-thickness hair, you can use baby powder (or cornstarch) as a great dry shampoo option.
Create Curls With A Flat Iron
Kill two birds with one stone by using a hair straightener as a curling iron. Simply twist sections of your hair from the root and then iron. Alternatively, try spinning the straightening iron as you work your way down a section of hair.
Keep Hair Breakage To A Minimum
Protect those delicate tips of your hair by applying some skin cream to them before going to bed.
Prevent Foot Blisters
New shoes can cause blisters, so protect your feet by applying deodorant to the bottom of your feet.
Boost Your Eyelash Curler
To get a longer-lasting curl from your eyelash curler, warm it with your hair dryer before using it.
Perfect Nail Polish Application
Eliminate nail polish application mistakes by applying Elmer’s glue around your nails before painting them. Simply peel off the glue when you’re done, and voilà!
Tape Your Nails
If you want to create patterns and designs when applying nail polish, just use some tape.
Prolong Perfume Scent
To make a perfume last longer, dab some Vaseline onto the area where you’ve applied the scent.
Amp Up Your Ponytail
Create a fuller ponytail by making one ponytail on top of the other. Hide the two rubber bands by wrapping a small strand of hair from the ponytail around them and then pinning it in place with a bobby pin.
Reduce Pimple Size
Reduce pimple size and redness by soaking cotton balls or swabs in eyedrops, freeze them for a few minutes and then apply on the pimple.
Eliminate post-shave itchiness and bumps by applying shea butter to freshly shaved skin.
