Top 5 Ultimate Beauty Hacks
That don't break the bank, but change your whole routine
Listen, we are all looking for ways to make our beauty routines easier and cheaper. Pay close attention, because you don't want to miss this!
1. Vaseline is your new best friend.
Honey, let me tell you, Vaseline has changed my life. It takes mascara off. If you apply it to your makeup-free lashes and brows every night, they will grow fuller and faster than ever. Just take a little spully or clean off an old mascara wand, put some Vaseline on the bristles, and use it like a mascara for your lashes, or an eyebrow wand for those brows. Trust me, you will thank me later. AND it makes amazing chapstick.
2. Lemon juice and egg whites shrink your pores better than any store bought face mask.
If you get a bowl, spoon, and toilet paper, you can make a pore-shrinking sheet mask. Use two tablespoons of lemon juice, and three eggs without the yolks. Now, mix that very well. Now, take your toilet paper, and cut or rip it into a bunch of strips. Take the strips and completely dip them (one at a time) into the mixture, and them apply to your face, using the spoon to make them as smooth as possible on your face. Now, let the strips sit on your face until they dry, maybe like 20-30 minutes. The best part is peeling the strips off your face, and seeing how much better your pores look. Once all the strips are off, use warm water to rinse any left on your face.
3. Place a warm washcloth on your face when taking a shower.
Before you wash your face, let a warm washcloth sit on your face for 30-60 seconds. This opens up your pores, so you can get a deeper clean out of your favorite face washes.
4. Longer and Fuller Looking Lashes.
We all have those days when we don't feel like putting on a full face of makeup, but also feel like we look like crackheads if we don't apply a decent amount. Well guess what, I got your back. Tightline your water and lash line before applying your mascara. You will notice a big difference in the length and volume of your lashes.
5. Last hack: We all have those two shades of foundation taking up space in our makeup bags.
One is too light, and one is too dark. Instead of letting them sit in your bag and waste space, or pouring them onto the back of your palette to try to mix the perfect shade, try this and let me know how it works for you. I'm telling you, my face has never looked better since trying this technique. Are you ready for it? Okay. Take the shade that is closest to your shade, usually the lighter one, and dot it alllllll over that beautiful face, while leaving room for more dots. Take the other shade, usually the darker, and apply dots of that in the little areas left between the first shade you used. Now, blend it all out. If you are anything like me, you want to blend the one color, and then the other. No, blend it all together at the same time. I am telling you, my foundation has never been such a perfect shade, nor has it come out looking as airbrushed as it does, when I do this trick.
