Amidst the chaos that we call life, there’s nothing more disheartening than when your beauty game throws you for a loop (i.e. realising your completely out of mascara a minute before you’re supposed to be heading out the door). We’ve rounded up a few need-to-know hacks to make your life a little easier.
Best of all, these tips don’t require buying anything. Most likely, you already have what you need at home. I know, genius right?
Apply clear nail polish to the inside of your rings to stop green stains from appearing.
Make your ‘do appear fuller by creating a smaller ponytail slightly below your regular one.
Use shampoo (instead of expensive makeup remover) to wash your makeup brushes.
Run a tube of dried-out mascara under hot water to get a few more applications.
Apply ice on puffy eye bags to reduce swelling.
Can’t find your contour makeup? Use a darker shade of concealer.
Waxing can be time-consuming and hair removal creams can cause skin irritation. It’s better to use a gel (like Satin Care Gel by Venus) with a razor to shave.
Braid damp hair before bed to wake up with natural, no-heat waves.
Place a tissue over your pout and brush with translucent powder for long-lasting lip colour.
Use sticky notes or tape to create a defined wing eyeliner.
Yup, it’s easy-peasy!
