Taking care of beauty can be a lot of hard work but there are hacks to make it so much easier.
Your beauty routine can be pretty painless. While also making you look absolutely perfect. From hair to makeup, these tips will astonish you.
You’ll wonder how you completed your beauty routine without them. We’ll show you how to properly use tools and the right way to apply.
1) Lazy Makeup Removal
Sometimes taking your makeup off and washing your face is just too much. Like when you’re super tired, drunk, or just being lazy. Place makeup remover wipes next to your bed so you have no excuse but to wipe that makeup off.
2) Don’t Spill The Polish
If you make one false move while you’re applying nail polish, you can make a huge mess. Use a bottle ring holder to prevent this. It will keep the bottle steady and help you apply with precision.
3) Mark Your Makeup
It’s not likely that you’ll remember when you opened your makeup after its open. So it’s best to mark it with the date you opened it. That way you’ll know for sure when it’s time to toss.
4) Clean A Curling Iron
Is your curling iron full of gunk? Scrub it with steel wool. This will have it looking brand new again.
5) Numb Before You Wax
Everyone loves how smooth they are after they wax. But no one likes how painful it is. Try a topical numbing cream to reduce the pain.
6) Find The Dupe
Luxury makeup brands really can’t be beaten. However, you can find items that are similar and look almost like the makeup from your favorite luxury brands. Check out dupe that Instagram account for duplicates for popular brands here.
7) Get Rid Of Nail Polish Stains
Sometimes nail polish will stain your nails even after you remove it. Use baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, and hot water to get it off. Get the details here.
8) Get Rid Of Puffy Under Eyes
Do your eyes get puffy? The best way to get rid of this is to store your under-eye cream in the refrigerator. The cold will make the blood vessels in your eyes smaller and shrink the puffiness.
9) Foundation For The Seasons
Don’t buy a different foundation for each season. Instead, use a foundation mixer. This one will run you between $6 and $10.
10) Use Eyeliner To Shape Your Eye
You can give your eyes different shapes by applying your eyeliner in different ways. You can make your eye look rounded, almond-shaped, or elongated. Get the details here.
11) Toss It Out
Using makeup past its expiration date can be dangerous. It can give you a bacterial infection. You can find expiration dates for all your makeup here.
12) Know Where To Look
If you don’t see what you’re looking for on that list, don’t worry. You can find a jar symbol on your product packaging that has a number and an “M” which indicates the number of months it can be used for.
13) DIY Oil Blotting Sheets
Need an oil blotting sheet in a pinch? Use a toilet seat cover. They work the same way.
14) Get A Free Makeup Class
YouTube videos are great for learning how to do makeup. But sometimes you need someone to show you so that you really get it. Sign up for a free class at your local Sephora.
15) Dry Upside Down
You can mess up your makeup brushes if you don’t dry them right. Dry them upside down to prevent damage to the handles. You can use a cutting board and rubber bands to dry them in the right position.
16) DIY Brush Cleaner
The best way to clean your brush is with a mat. But you can make one instead of pay for one with a glue gun and paper plate. Get the details here.
17) The Key To Glitter Nail Polish
Glitter nail polish is great and really pretty. But it’s a pain to take off. Use a peel-off base coat. Use an orange stick to gently peel it off when you’re ready for a new color.
18) Fix A Liquid Eyeliner Pen
Is the tip on your eyeliner pen dried out or bent? Try pulling the tip out and flipping it over. Get the details here.
19) The Right Way To Match Foundation
Testing foundation on your arm will give you a false match. Try matching it to your neck instead. You can also try taking a picture with the flash on to see how it looks in photos.
20) Don’t Diss The Drugstore
You can buy some pretty good product at the drug store. Shopping at the drug store also lets you try products out. If you don’t like the products you buy, you have 30 days to get a full refund if you bring your receipt.
21) DIY Gel Eyeliner
Turn your pencil eyeliner into gel eyeliner in seconds. Just hold the tip under a flame for about a second. Let it cool for 15 seconds and use to get a more intense smudged look.
22) White Base Coat
Use a coat of white nail polish as your base. This will make your color coat pop. It will also protect your nails from being stained by colored polishes.
23) Check In A Bright Light
It’s happened to all of us. We do our makeup in an ill-lit room and when we get into the light we realize out uneven our makeup is. Check your makeup outside or in bright light to make sure its even and you didn’t miss any spots.
24) Balance With Green And Orange Concealer.
Using a green concealer will tone down redness. Using green and orange can help you correct uneven skin tone. Get the details on how to do this properly here.
25) Make Your Eyes Look Bigger Wider
A simple brush stroke can totally change the look of your eye. Sweep your mascara toward your nose, instead of upwards. This will make your eyes look a lot bigger.
26) How To Apply Perfume
Spraying yourself down with perfume is NOT the way to apply perfume. Apply it at your pulse points. This will make the scent last longer.
27) Use All Of Your Makeup
Knowing that there is more makeup left in your tube but you just can’t get it out is so annoying. Cut them open and scoop your makeup out. Place it in an empty plastic pot.
28) Apply Foundation At The Center
You can look like your wearing a mask if you apply your foundation wrong. Place the foundation at the center of your face and blend outward. This will give you a more natural look.
29) Use All Of The Minerals
Is your mineral powder done? Dislodge the bottom part of your mineral powder container with a penny. You’ll find more in the bottom.
30) Bronzer Shape
Bronzer shouldn’t be applied haphazardly. And especially not all over your face. Apply it in the shape of a three-over your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline.
31) White Eyeliner For Eyeshadow
Use white eyeliner to make your eyeshadow standout. Outline the area you want to shadow with eyeliner and fill it in. Then apply the shadow on top.
32) Cover the Pimple
Dab the pimple with foundation. Then with concealer. Finish off with a setting powder.
33) Spoon For the Perfect Wing
Trying to get the perfect wing eyeliner can get messy. Instead of trying it freehand, use a spoon to guide your strokes. Use the photos for instructions.
34) Save That Brush
I am convinced that a good mascara has nothing to do with the mascara itself. It’s all about the brush. If you find a good brush you like just clean it off and use it with other mascaras.
35) Easy Smoky Eye
Use the hashtag technique. Make a hashtag in the corner of your eye. Blend it for a smoky eye look.
36) The Right Way To Use A Bobby Pin
You’re using bobby pins wrong. Place the wavy side against your head. This will give you a better grip.
37) Prop Up Your Pony
Place two bobby pins on the underside of ponytail. Place it through your elastic. This will prop up your ponytail.

Apply your lipstick. Place a tissue across your lips. Dush with a translucent powder so your lipstick will stay longer.

Want your hair to look thicker? Dust eyeshadow the same color as your hair along your hairline. This will make it look a lot fuller.

Fill a bowl with ice water after you paint your nails. Soak them for a few minutes. This will help your nails dry fast.

Got a broken eyeshadow? Mix it with some petroleum jelly. Now it’s a lipgloss.
43) How To Apply Eye Concealer
Draw a triangle with the base under your eye and the tip pointing toward your cheek. Like your shining a flashlight under your eye. This will brighten up your face and eye area.
44) Well Rested Eye
Use highlighter slightly lighter than your kin. Draw three lines in the inner “V,” the middle section of your eyelid, and below the brow bone. This will make you look well-rested when you aren’t
45) Fix Foundation Stains
Did you smudge makeup on your outfit? Wipe a dot of shaving cream on it. This will make sure the stain comes out after you put it in the wash.
