There are so many rules, tutorials, and new trends when it comes to your makeup, hair and nails. In a fast paced world, sometimes we take the easy way out when it comes to our beauty routines. These beauty hacks will have you looking your best without spending too long in front of a mirror. They're simple and will certainly play up your best features!
Just like we have different hair types, we need different tools to make those types work best. When doing a blowout, the brush is the most important tool. If you have thin or wavy hair, use an all-nylon brush for less tension on your hair. On the other hand, if you have thick or curly hair, use a boar-bristle brush to grip your locks.
Life's hard and running out of your favorite lip stick makes it even harder. Well, this simple DIY stain will keep your lips colorful until you have time to get more. Simply wet a pink-toned (or any color you want to wear) eyeshadow and apply to your lips!
We all hate that sticky mess that comes with trying to apply a smooth coat of mascara to your lower lashes. It either comes out clumpy or leaves smudges all over the eyelid. Ditch the wand in the mascara tube and use a fan brush to apply mascara to your lower lashes.
Don't feel like a dark smoky eye fits your bubbly personality? Well then go for the brighter version of the smoky eye! Start with a cream color shadow on the lids, then use a long shadow brush to buff a color of your choice outwards. Finally, apply concealer wear necessary to diffuse the color more if needed.
There's no need to drop a ton of money on the latest beauty trends. For a glam glow without all the money, simply use these two products you probably already own. Use cream or dry oil on your cheekbones to create the desired highlighting effect without actually using a highlighting product.
The French manicure has been a staple nail style, well, for as long as you can probably remember. Don't want just a plain color? Go for the French manicure. Now, here's another reason to jump on the French mani train. By painting a wider, thicker tip you'll give off the illusion of a longer nail bed.
Not sure if you'd look good with bangs, but want to try it out before you make the big leap? Or, do you simply want bangs some days and not others. Follow these few easy steps to create the best looking faux bangs. First, decide where the bangs are going to lay from your hairline to the middle top of your head. Once you have that shape, tease away and clip the bangs in place. Finally, create a zig zag part to hide the clips and you've got the best looking bangs!
We get it, using curling irons or straighteners to get the perfect wavy look can be challenging and time-consuming. With this simple trick you won't need to use either. Simply dampen your hair with a hold and shine product, twist sections into one long spiral and then "cinnamon bun" the spirals into knots. Hold in place with a rubber band, making sure to tuck in the ends. Let your waves loose when the knots are completely dry.
One way to keep your summer tan long into the fall months is to create a beachy glow using bronzer. Apply the bronzer to your nose, apple of your cheeks and your forehead for a sun-kissed look.
Are you a glitter queen? Well, here's a tip for you. The best way to get that pesky glitter to stick? Lip gloss. Use a clear lip gloss to stick on glitter and use surgical tape to create the shape you want your glitter to flow.
Your straight hair doesn't have to fall flat. As you're drying it, use a round brush to place on the roots under the section. Work your hair up and around in a "C" shape to bring hair off of the scalp. Bring on the volume!
Long gone are the days of dark lip liner. Seriously, don't use that stuff. Instead, opt for a lip liner that is a color lighter than your lips. It will give the appearance of more volume.
Instead of using makeup primer, use eye shadow primer all over your face for a natural glow.
There's no need to cake on pounds of concealer and foundation to cover up unwanted blemishes. Instead, use a small brush to simply dot the concealer on the blemish and finish off with a little bit of powder on top.
In order to get your makeup to set properly, you need to reduce moisture on your face before applying any powder. Simply take a tissue and gently rub over the oiliest spots on your face.
