These days, there are millions of beauty blogs, YouTube videos and social media posts dishing out all sorts of advice. With so much noise it can be hard to figure out what works and what doesn’t. Don’t stress over it, we’ve picked up 5 really good beauty hacks that you can follow to simplify your routine.
1. Put your eyeliner in the freezer
If you love wearing eyeliner, you already know how frustrating it is when it crumbles midway across your eyelid! Instead of continuously sharpening it, place it in the freezer for about 10 minutes before you are going to apply it. It’ll harden up and will glide on seamlessly!
2. Shave using conditioner rather than soap.
Skip the soap and opt for hair conditioner next time you need to shave your legs! Soap can dry out your skin, while conditioner will actually soften the hair on your legs making it way easier to get a close shave. The added bonus is that your legs will also feel silky smooth!
3. Blast your lash curler with hot air
To help get curlier and flirtier eye lashes, simply heat your curler with some hot air from your dryer for a few seconds before you curl them for some instant oomph!
4. Make your manicure last
Don’t you hate it when you get a manicure and then the next day it’s already chipped! To help make yours last longer, wipe down your nails with an acetone-based cleaner before you apply the polish and it will stick much better.
5. Use raw potatoes for puffy eyes
Potatoes are a natural astringent which basically means they helps decrease water retention and they also contain catalase, which is an enzyme that will also help lighten dark circles! So cut yourself a couple of thick slices of raw potatoes and pop them on your eyes for 10 minutes and kiss goodbye to puffy eyes.
