Are you tired of looking like a wreck, but don’t have time for a full-fledged beauty routine? Don’t worry, there’s no shame in answering in affirmative to this question. Almost all of us are in the same boat due to the fast-paced life we lead.
Irrespective of how much time we get in our daily lives, we always want to look our best. It’s a different matter that it becomes difficult to pull together a ramp-worthy look in the meager 15 minutes we get every day.
What if we were to tell you that we have a trick up our sleeve that will make this dream a reality? With the Internet being a vast reservoir of make-your-life-easy-in-a-jiffy beauty hacks, this reality is within your grasp. And to make it even more convenient for you, we have compiled a list of some of the best beauty hacks here for you. Here they are:
Don’t you just hate it when your favorite makeup product refuses to work as advertised, at the last moment? Well, if that product happens to be your favorite pencil eyeliner, then this hack might do the trick for you.
If your eye pencil is a little flaky and not gliding on smoothly, you just have to heat it over an open flame for a few seconds and voila! It will start gliding on like butter in no time.
If you have been parting your hair the same way for a long time, your parting becomes more pronounced. And this gives the impression that you are losing hair volume.
In order to avoid this, just dust off an eyeshadow, which approximates your hair color, along your parting. This will make your parting look narrower and as a result, your hair will look thicker.
Though they might be advertised as long-lasting, there are very few lipsticks that can survive a night of hard partying. And the ones that do, cost a pretty penny.
Here’s the penny-pinching trick to making your lipstick last longer:
Take a tissue and dust a bit of powder over it. After you’ve applied your lipstick, lightly hold this tissue over your lips. This will prevent your lipstick from wearing off sooner.
Those pesky dark circles can be made to vanish with this trick. Instead of applying the concealer over your dark circles in a crescent shape, apply it in the form of a triangle (look at the picture given below) and then blend it well.
It will lift up your face, concealing your dark circles in a more natural way.
If you have a mascara that has become dried-up and flaky well before its expiration date, this is how you can revive it. Just add a few drops of saline solution to it and mix it well by shaking the bottle. Your mascara will be as good as new in no time.
If you are wondering how you can look like a normal human being for the office, after a night of good old-fashioned revelry, here’s how you can do it: hold on two cold green tea bags over your eyes for a few minutes and watch your eyes de-puff like magic.
Want eyes like Bambi? Try this hack. Instead of lining your eyes with black liner all over (which makes them look smaller), line the top with black eyeliner and use a brown liner to line the bottom. After doing that, use nude eyeliner on your waterline. This will make your eyes pop!
To make your perfume last longer, dab on a little Vaseline on your wrists before spraying the perfume on them. The Vaseline will absorb the perfume and make it stay on for longer.
Want to curl your eyelashes, but don’t have too much time? Get your hairdryer to do the work for you. Heat your eyelash curler by blowing hot air on it with the hairdryer. Wait for it to cool down slightly (so that you don’t burn off your eyelash), and then use it to curl your eyelashes.
