10 Simple Beauty Secrets You Need To Know




Us girls are always on a hunt for the best beauty hacks. Whether that's to obtain wonderful glowing skin, perfecting that eyeliner flick or saying goodbye to those under-eye circles that we hate oh so much! So I've searched the internet and picked out my top 10 favourite beauty tips and tricks that may be very useful to you.

#1 Use nude eyeliner on your lower lash line to make your eyes appear brighter

To enhance the brightness of your eyes, avoid using white and opt for a nude toned eye pencil to fill in your lower lash line. Nude is a natural shade, so your eyes will appear healthier and wide awake.

#2 Blow dry your eyelash curlers 

Blowing hot air onto your eyelash curlers will certainly help your lashes curl easier and the staying power will last a lot longer! To ace this, warm up your eyelash curler with the blow dryer until it is heated. Wait until it cools slightly but is still warm as you don't want to burn yourself. Finally clamp down on your lashes to get the perfect curl.


#3 Making your makeup last longer

We all want lasting makeup, especially on long days. By dampening your makeup brushes before applying foundation; not only will your skin look more radiant, but your makeup goes further! This trick also works on eyeshadow to secure a little dewy sheen. Before you know it, you'll realise you're going through your makeup a lot slower.

#4 Apply Vaseline for perfume to last longer

If you want to smell great all day (most likely), rub vaseline onto your pulse points before applying the fragrance of your choice. This will be sure to make your perfume last longer.

#5 Use a clean toothbrush to get rid of flyaways

When you're trying to master a flawless updo, do you find those annoying flyaway hairs? If so, spray a clean toothbrush with hairspray and comb towards the back of the skull and boom they're gone.

#6 Turn your glossy nail polish matte

Doesn't it suck when you realise you're out of matte nail polish last minute or you're telling yourself that you couldn't possibly go out and buy ANOTHER nail polish to add to your collection? well fear not, with just a little touch of cornstarch you can mix this with a glossy nail polish and it will turn into a matte shade. It's that simple.

#7 Plump up your lashes with translucent powder

If you want to achieve fuller looking lashes, all you need to do is dust on a bit of translucent powder. This helps grip the mascara in between each coat and in a matter of seconds, you have the look you wanted.

#8 Use a spoon to create the perfect winged eyeliner

Holding the stem of a spoon against the outer corner of your eye, draw the straight line as the first step for your cat eye. Then, flip the spoon so it's hugging your eyelid, and use the rounded outer edge to create a perfectly curved winged effect.

#9 Use the same spoon to avoid mascara marks on your upper eyelid 

Hold the spoon so it's hugging your eyelid, and then apply your mascara like you normally would. As you sweep the mascara wand against your lashes and back of the spoon, you'll notice that the mascara is only hitting the spoon, not your eyelid.

#10 Sticky bobby pins

Place however many bobby pins onto a towel and spritz them each with a small amount of hairspray. This will stop them from sliding out of your hair and will save you from losing them!
