Beauty: Tips and Tricks

We all have our established beauty routines that we abide by from day to day. I thought that I would share some of my favorite tips, tricks and secrets I have learned through other bloggers and the web, hoping that you may be able to benefit from them in your daily routines. Some of these you might already know or use, though some might inspire you to try something new.


Silky Soft skin: Just add a few drops of baby oil to your body wash to leave your skin feeling extra silky and smooth!

Makes eyes appear bigger: If you don’t already own a white pencil, invest in one now just for this simple trick! Instead of lining your bottom lid with dark eyeliner, use a white pencil to create the illusion of a bigger eye.

Make your eyeshadow pop: Another use for the white pencil is making your eyeshadow brighter The key to making your fun eyeshadows pop is a white base. Use a white eyeliner and cover your entire lid before applying the color of your choice.

Clumpy Mascara: Add a drop or two of Visine (or any brand of eye drops) into the tube, and then rub the wand around inside.

Healthy hair: Rather than using a towel, use an old t-shirt and pat dry — Don’t rub! Rubbing your hair will lead to breakage.

Flawless face: When applying foundation and blush, swirl your brush in a circular motion from the cheek to the hairline, this provides an air-brushed look.

Lasting lipsticks: Exfoliate your lips once a week and dab foundation on lips prior to applying the colour, lipstick holds better on smooth lips.

Lipstick coverage: Smile when you are putting on your lipstick, this is the best way to get complete coverage, corners included!

Long-lasting fragrance: If you want to smell fabulous all day long, spray a little bit of perfume on your hair brush, it’s a fact that hair holds fragrance longer than skin!

Healthy Hair: Apply a hair mask using coconut oil and an avocado leaving your hairy silky smooth and shiny.

Eye Pencil: If your eye pencils are soft, leave them in the fridge for an hour, the less creamy they are, the less wastage will occur.

Makeup Tools: Wash your make up brushes with baby shampoo, it is very gentle and won’t cause any damage, making them last longer!
