Beauty Hacks and Tips
Beauty hacks are tips and ways of doing things that help you improvise when you don’t have what you need at your disposal. They’re perfect in a pinch and can save you when you’re having a beauty emergency. Some of these are hacks and some are tips, but all of them are to make things easier.
Nail Clippers to cut off split ends
This might seem odd at first but it’s actually genius. No one likes split ends and there’s not always time to get to the salon for a trim, but this hack lets you trim them when needed without running the risk of messing up the rest of your hair.
Mask Cocktails – using multiple masks at once on different areas of your face to target it’s individual issues.
This is more of a tip than a beauty hack, and I know there are many people who may already do this, but I wanted to include it because it’s a really great way to target all of your skin concerns in one mask session. It also helps to balance your skin because each mask is helping the specific issue it’s made for.
Lipstick as blush
A beauty hack that is a tried and true method that has worked for decades that still works just as well today. Not sure what blush to wear? Worrying about your makeup looking cohesive? Use your chosen lipstick as a cream blush! I would advise not using certain colors, though, like blues and greens. And only darker colors if you’re comfortable with them as well as in cream form.
A Bobby Pin to extract pimples.
The first, and most important thing is to only use this in certain circumstances where you absolutely need to. And NEVER use it anywhere but your chin and forehead. If you have a blemish ready to go in any other area, run it over it lightly and if it goes easily, then you’re fine, if not, avoid it until you get properly extract it.
Now that the disclaimer’s out of the way, this technique works really well in a pinch. The looped portion at the top of the bobby pin works similar to an extractor and helps squeeze a pimple firmly but gently, enough to remove the pustule.
Rub an ice cube on your face before applying makeup.
The cold will close pores, making them appear smaller and reduce redness. Take an ice cube and wrap a paper towel around it, wait a few seconds for it to start melting, then glide it across your skin. Not only will this reduce the appearance of pores, but it will also calm blemishes and redness, and help to clear up acne. It also helps keeps your makeup on longer and give your skin a natural glow that will let you walk out the door confidently makeup free. Maintain that glow by regularly using ice cubes in your routine to increase blood circulation, as well as preventing wrinkles and premature aging.
Those are some of the most useful beauty hacks and tips.
