15 Beauty Hacks That Will Revolutionize Your Makeup Routine

Beauty and makeup hacks are conquering the world of social networking websites, offering viable alternatives to surgical enhancements. But sometimes there are so many of them pouring in that you feel overwhelmed and lost as to which ones are genuine and can be used at home to perfect your look.

If you’re tired of blackheads on your T-zone, mix a bit of toothpaste with baking soda. Use a new toothbrush to gently rub it on your chin, nose, and forehead for a few minutes. Then wash it off with warm water. The mixture gets rid of blackheads and cleans the skin of extra oil.

14. Eyelash lift

Applying mascara every morning and again if you’re going out for dinner can sometimes feel tiresome. Some people might even be allergic to the components of mascara. Fret no more! There is a great solution: eyelash lifts. You can either visit a beauty salon or use one of the DIY kits sold online.

13. Plumper lips

Lip augmentation, with all those needles and blood, can scare anyone. But there is a simple way to make your lips plumper: just take a fork, and gently poke your lips. This will increase blood circulation and make them look sexier. Then apply your lipstick or lip gloss.

12. Duct tape curls

Our grandmas taught us to use newspaper or pieces of cloth to curl our hair. But there is a 21st-century method! Get some duct tape, and cut it into pieces of even length. Fold so that the sticky part is inside, and then use as curlers. Sleep on them for a night, and you will have beautiful curls in the morning.

11. Matching lip gloss with nail color

This is probably one of the coolest and easiest hacks. We all want that perfect color match for both our lips and nails. But what if you don’t have a matching nail polish at hand? Use your lip gloss or lipstick instead. Apply it to each nail, and then cover with 2 layers of top coat. Done! You’ve got yourself a perfect match for your lips and nails!

10. Mascara as eyeliner

If you have a date but can only find a mascara in your purse, then use it as an eyeliner as shown above. It will definitely complete your look!

9. Dark underarm spot removal

Men’s hair removal products are so good that ladies can also use them. For example, the dark spots under your armpits can be easily whitened by using Nivea Men Dark Spot Reduction Cream.

8. Looking fresh in the morning

We’ve all been there: sleepless nights because of studying or kids crying, which leads to dark circles under your eyes in the morning. But just apply white or cream eyeliner inside your lower waterline, and voila! You look fresh!

7. Ponytail lift

If you want your ponytail to look like it came from the 1960s, just use 2 bobby pins underneath it. Instant lift-up!

6. Pimple redness reduction

An unexpected pimple is always a pain. Use eyedrop solution to reduce redness and swelling. Apply one or 2 drops onto a cotton pad, and press against the pimple. Leave for a few seconds, and then remove. The pimple will be less red and swollen.

5. Taming baby hairs

If you’ve decided to go for a ponytail or braids but those baby hairs are sticking out, use a new toothbrush to put them in place. Finish the look with some hair spray.

4. Perfect cat eyeliner with a bobby pin

Bobby pins can be useful when creating great hairdos, but they are also a solution for the perfect cat eyeliner. Apply liquid eyeliner on the edge of the bobby pin, and press it onto your skin. Then color inside the shape, and finish the rest of the line. Perfect.

3. Curling eyelashes with a hair dryer

To make curled eyelashes last longer, use a hair dryer. Take an eyelash curler, and heat it with a hair dryer. Leave it to cool off just a little, and then use as usual.

2. Crayon lipstick hack

Your kids’ crayons can become your lipstick! Mix them with coconut oil (or any other natural oil), and apply to your lips. You can also play with color mixing!

1. Toilet seat covers for blotting

No blotting paper at hand but your T-zone needs some cleanup? Use toilet seat covers (clean ones, of course!).
