8 Beauty & Makeup Hacks To Overcome Any Emergencies
Being a girl is not easy—in the world of beauty, there are endless tips, tricks and rules to keep you looking fabulous every time. Read on to find 8 Beauty and Makeup Hacks for your beauty regime.
Trick No 1
Did you run out of shaving cream? Many of you might use shower gels or hand wash gels in place of it, but you should know that they not only remove the natural oil from your skin but also make it very harsh and leave lots of cuts on your skin. So, what is the solution? Hair conditioner is the best switch as it gives the skin the same softness as shaving cream.
Trick No 2
Are lip balms and lipsticks not giving you the desired results for chapped lips in the harsh winters? If you believe in an au natural procedure, this homemade lip scrub will work wonders.
Here’s what you need:
- 1tbsp brown sugar (normal sugar is fine too)
- 1/2tsp olive oil
- 1tbsp honey
Mix all these ingredients and voila! Your natural lip scrub is ready. You can store it as and when you need it.
Trick No 3
Crying over your favorite lipstick that just broke? Don’t worry, it’s not useless—you can fix it. Don’t believe us? Try this. Use a lighter to heat up the broken part that is still in the tube, then press the broken end back on to it. Heat up the seam with the lighter to seal it. Let the lipstick cool in the fridge for around 15-30 minutes. Easy peasy!
Trick No 4
Want that perfect French manicure in the comfort of your home? All you need is nail polish and a tape. Here’s how to do it. Apply the tape on your nail bed, leaving the tip exposed. Then, put your white nail polish on the tip. Leave it for a few seconds to dry, then peel off gently. Seal it with a top coat.
Trick No 5
Want a dark, intense kohl effect? Get at-home gel eyeliner in seconds. Take your kohl and hold the tip under the flame for a second. Let it cool down for around 15 seconds—the end result is a dark, intense ,smooth kohl. Isn’t this an all-time value-for-money trick?
Trick No 6
You don’t like to wear that dark shade of lipstick because it gets on your teeth? Do this to avoid it. After you have applied the lipstick, stick your finger in your mouth and pull out your finger. This way, the excess lipstick will get on your finger and not on the teeth.
Trick No 7
Have a sparkly eye shadow that is too bold for you to apply? Make it into an instant nail polish. To do that, you’ll need a clear shade and a glittery eye shadow. Put the powder eye shadow into the clear shade, shake it, and you’ve got yourself a brand-new polish.
Trick No 8
Want your lipstick to last longer? After you have applied it, take a tissue paper and hold it over your lips, then lightly dust a translucent powder (or a compact powder) over the tissue. This helps in sealing the lip colour for a long time.
