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?

#1. For stain-free fingers

Apply clear nail polish to the inside of your rings to stop green stains from appearing.

#6. For a structured jawline

Can’t find your contour makeup? Use a darker shade of concealer.

#7. For smooth skin

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.
