7 Beauty Hacks Every Fashionista Should Know!!


Everyone could use some tips and tricks to getting yourself ready like a pro, and if you’re in a hurry, the easier you can make life on yourself, the quicker you can get ready for that big event. Here’s a collection of tips and tricks from the likes of Cosmopolitan and Harpers Bazaar that just might speed you up along the way!

1. Turn a pencil eyeliner into a gel formula with the help of a match or lighter.

Hold your black, green, burgundy, etc., kohl eye pencil (which typically creates a thin, harder-to-apply line), under the flame for one second, let it cool for 15 seconds, and then watch the consistency change right before your eyes. Finally, glide on your newly made gel liner for an instantly smudgier formula.



2. Cover your eyelid with white liner to make any eyeshadow shade pop.

To make a sheer or less pigmented eyeshadow appear more colorful on your eyelid, take a white eyeliner pencil and run it over your entire eyelid. The opaque consistency of the liner will intensify any eyeshadow shade and make it pop instantly against your skin.


3. Draw your cat-eye first, and then fill in the open space for a perfect winged liner application every single time.

It’s much easier this way. Use the pic below as your guide.


4. Add saline solution to a flaky mascara formula to re-wet it.

You’re only supposed to keep mascara for three months, because beyond that point, it can collect bacteria and lead to eye infections. However, if your mascara dries up within those three months, revive it with a couple drops of saline solution.

5. Hit your eyelash curler with a hair dryer to heat it up, so your lashes curl easier.

Blowing hot air on your eyelash curler will help your lashes curl easier and stay curled longer; it works the same way heat changes the pattern of your hair and holds a curl with a curling iron. To do it, hit the lash curler with your blow dryer until it heats up, wait until it cools slightly but is still warm (you want to be sure not to burn your eyelid), and then clamp down on your lashes to curl them.

6. Apply eyelash glue to false lashes with the tip of a clean hair-pin.

Use the tip of a hair-pin to evenly disperse the glue along the base of your falsies. Then, wait a few seconds for the glue to get tacky and apply!

7. Mix loose pigments with a salve or petroleum jelly to make your own custom lip gloss.

If you have loose eyeshadow pigments that you’re obsessed with and want to wear as a lip shade, blend it with a little bit of  petroleum jelly (like Vaseline) in a spoon and swipe it onto your lips. Voila!
