Beauty Hack #1: The Shaving Cream Swap
Out of shaving cream? Bare those legs with confidence and swap in your conditioner—it’s filled with hydrating ingredients and will help you get a close, smooth shave.
Beauty Hack #2: Use White Polish As Base
Make any nail color look more vibrant by starting with a base coat of white polish. It will make the color pop!
Beauty Hack #3: Ingredient Hair Mask
Are your locks looking lifeless and dull? Look to your pantry for the answer—coconut oil makes an amazing hair mask.
Beauty Hack #4: DIY Mattify (Lips Edition)
Make any lipstick matte with loose powder. Apply your lipstick, place a tissue over your lips, then brush over it lightly with translucent powder—the powder will seep through the tissue and mattify your lip colour.
Beauty Hack #5: DIY Mattify (Nails Edition)
Love the look of matte nails? Make your own matte nail polish by mixing any loose powder eyeshadow in with a clear polish, then painting the mixture on.
Beauty Hack #6: Business Card Mascara Trick
Avoid mascara smudges for good by holding up a business card behind your lashes as you apply. This works especially well with your lower lashes!
Beauty Hack #7: Lip Balm, Brow Tamer
If you’re out of your favorite brow gel, use lip balm instead. Apply with your finger, then use a clean spooly to tame your unruly brows and set them into place.
Beauty Hack #8 Dry Your Nails Faster
Need your nail polish to dry faster? Dunk your digits in a bowl of cold water for one to three minutes to cut your drying time in half.
Beauty Hack #9: Instant Dewy Glow
Mix a dab of liquid highlighter or moisturizer in with your foundation to get that dewy, model-esque glow.
Beauty Hack #10: Save Your Shattered Makeup
Shattered eyeshadow or blush? Instead of throwing out your compact, just add a small amount of rubbing alcohol and mix it into a smooth paste. Pat it down with a spoon and let it sit overnight. Your powder will be as good as new!
