Welcome back to another post, it’s another beauty one – and I’ve got a feeling if you own any bit of makeup, then you may like this post as it’s a useful one!
I’m really excited to share this post with you, because when I learnt about these hacks I was so surprised these tips even worked and lets face it, every loves a life hack especially when it can save you money!
I rarely scroll through Facebook nowadays but seeing as my boyfriend does it 2586277 times a day – I decided to follow in his footsteps and do the same. AND that’s when I come across these really interesting beauty hack videos. You can find the Beauty Hacks page here – but I wanted to summarise below some of my favourite hacks for you to try!
Fixing Broken Makeup
Dropped your powder and smashed it all up? How annoying is it when this happens! Especially if you go and spend over £20 on a powder based product. So if this happens, all you need to do is pour straight alcohol directly onto the product and with a cocktail stick or something similar and spread it around evenly. Then get a bit of kitchen roll and place over the product, then find something thats the same size as the product like a lid and press down hard on the kitchen paper/ toilet paper. Let the product dry and then voila – your powder has re-combined and good as new!
Arghhh – Have you ever gone to put your favourite lipstick on only to find the tip of the lipstick has broken off and drops right in front of your feet? Yep thats happened to me countless times and it infuriates me so much. I didn’t know this, but if this happens, what you can do is place the broken tip on top of the base as it would normally be, get a lighter and simply melt the product back together! GENIUS!
When you go to paint your nails and the nail polish is all dry and disgusting? Again, something I have experienced plenty of times before. I’ve known this for a while but still it’s a great tip and.handy when it comes to it. So all you need to do is put a few drops of nail varnish remover in the bottle and this helps loosen up the varnish and it goes back to normal consistency! YAY to this!
If you’re mascara become dry and clumpy – normally is an indication you need to go out and buy a new one as your one has seen better days. However – if you haven’t had time or (more like me) haven’t got the funds and you’re desperate, get a glass of hot water and whirl the mascara (the whole thing in the packaging, not just the wand) around for a minute or so, and this helps the mascara loosen and therefore is less dry!
This one I just found genius! I mean, I don’t think I’ll struggle because I have soooo many lipsticks, It’s ridiculous, but still this is so good and I think you should know. All you need is some vaseline and eyeshadow colours. Simply rub some Vaseline on the back of you hand, then rub in an eyeshadow colour of your choice – and apply it to your lips. This look creates more of a tinted lip balm look, rather than full blown colour – but hey, we’re okay with that right!?
So there are a few of my favourite beauty tips/hacks I’ve found from this FB page, which I highly recommend you check out. There are lots of other clips on there for all sorts of hacks including hair, makeup, nails etc.
