24 Perfectly Useful Beauty Hacks For Makeup, Hair, Manicure and Skin
To be honest, we have all tried countless easy beauty tricks at home without telling anyone and they are the secret behind our flawless and on-point look, at times. Feel no shame in sharing them as you might help your fellow beauties in looking fabulous.
I have tried here to share some of my beauty tricks that I really find useful. I hope you do too!
1. Eye-pencil Management:
Before you go on to sharpening your eye pencil, put it in the fridge for a few minutes. This will prevent it from totally crumbling when you sharpen it. You must know how an eye-pencil crumbles off while sharpening it if it has been put in high temperature. The fridge hack is totally helpful and prolongs the life of an eye-pencil.
2. Perfect Eyeliner:
Oh, the struggle. Take it easy. Draw the outlines finely, don’t rush for filling them up. As soon as you are done outlining the shape you want, fill it in. First, decide the kind of wing you want to have, draw its outer design and then go for filling it. There, no more re-applying!
3. Mix for a Classy Look:
I suggest mixing up bright colors like green and blue with cream and brown color. Simple dark or dull colors often don’t do the trick. Combinations look great and give a completely new look. They give a shiny yet classy look which would do for both evening and night parties.
4. Eye-makeup Remover:
Coconut oil is a great eye-makeup remover. Apply some on a cotton pad and rub gently on your eyes. No more rubbing your eyes violently to take the colors off and no red eyes after the removal. Just pick some oil and cotton pads and get started. Be careful and make sure it does not get in contact with the sensitive parts of the eye.
5. For Better Lip shade:
Coat your lips with a translucent powder before applying lipstick, it will hold on the shade for a longer time. This is a great hack if your lip shade fades away quickly. The powder hack can also come in handy for a matt look.
6. No- Smudge Mascara:
For ignoring any smudges from Mascara on your eyelids, use a piece of paper. Put it behind your eyelashes while applying the Mascara in a way that it covers your eyelids and any excess Mascara hits the piece of paper, it will keep your eyelids smudge-free. It is way better than having your eye makeup ruined.
Blush on the apples of cheeks towards the hairline, then come downwards for a perfect blush-on look. You may already know that brushing towards the hairline is the trick but coming downwards after that is a hack that gives the blush a heavier and prettier look.
1. No Tangle Trick:
After conditioning your hair after shampoo, do not comb your hair and let it dry just like that. It won’t tangle that way. Conditioners are supposed to make your hair soft and the way you comb your hair may ruin the result.
2. Use Mousse:
For braiding your hair, use a simple mousse for a finer and more textured look. Little hairs can come out of the braid and make it look ugly; usage of a good mousse will prevent that and make a perfectly settled braid.
3. Go Easy:
While drying your hair with a Towel, don’t go too hard. Don’t twist your hair as it can damage it. Go easy on them and rub them softly with a nice and soft towel.
4. Clean and Shiny:
You can use dry shampoo or baby powder if your hair gets oily on a long day at work. It will restore the shiny look for you. It is normal for our scalps to be oily at the end of the day. Sweat can make it so; a dry shampoo will be at your rescue.
5. Start from the Bottom:
While combing your hair, always start with the tips. This will prevent any tangling. No matter what kind of hair you have, combing from the tips is a useful hack. You will notice less hair falling from your head, if your hair falls too much.
6. Tilt in:
Tilt your head inwards a little and then start blow drying your hair. Start with the roots and this will give it more volume. It is important to blow dry your hair thoroughly and the right way, otherwise it can be harmful and look ugly.В
1. Quick Do:
If you want your nails to look good but don’t have the time for making them up, just put up a clear coat of nail polish and stick glitter on it and you’re ready to go! Sometimes, we go days with the same manicure and don’t get enough time for renewing it. If in a hurry, just put on a new coat of the same shade and stick some glitter on it while it is wet. This will give your nails a fresh look.
2. Olive Oil:
Before applying nail polish, apply some olive oil on your cuticles. That will make it easy to remove the sides stained while applying. We ain’t no perfectionists who can apply nail polish without messing up, the sides are compulsory to be ruined a little, at least. A slight coat of olive oil before applying nail polish will make it easier to clean the sides after you are done as it will keep the skin moisturized.
3. Be Sure About the Edges:
If you use stickers for French tips, make sure that the edges of stickers are far away from the edges of your nails. If the edges of the stickers come in way of your nail paintbrush then it can create great mess. Make sure you have the perfect shape of the sticker on your nail so that you have the perfect result.
You can easily remove glitter from your nails by simply dabbing some cotton pads dipped in nail polish remover and then covering your nails fully with foil. The glitter will come off as you will remove the foil. The nail polish remover will do its work under the packed foil and it will be way too easy to just rub the glitter off. We know how big of a headache it is to remove glitter from nails.
5. Set & Dry:
If you want the nail polish to be thoroughly dried, then dip your nails in ice cold water for a minute or so after applying the nail polish. This solidifies the polish not only at the tips, but whole of the length. I do this when I don’t have the time to sit under a fan for 10-15 minutes after applying nail polish.
For Skin and Body:
1. Keep a Spray with You:
Especially in the summer heat, keep a handy water spray or a moisturizing cream for the protection of your skin. Our skin needs hydration and the sun can cause great harm if proper care is not taken.В
2. Skin Nourishment:
Make sure your skin gets enough of nourishing cream or an eye gel. They will prevent wrinkles and keep your under-eye area healthy and lush. Under-eye wrinkles increase with age and only frequent creaming can prevent it from happening for some time.
3. Morning Care:
Make sure to rinse your face in the morning with cold water, particularly the under-eye area. Also, rub ice on that area for some extra care. This will make your face look shinier and brighter.
4. Minimize Swelling:
Rubbing ice cubes can also minimize swelling on your face. It also reduces any inflammation. You can also try vasoconstrictor nasal spray for a brighter result. Ice cubes hydrate your skin in a way that water doesn’t, therefore rubbing ice on your skin is a great hack for always making it look healthy.
5. For Smoothness:
In order to get smooth skin, try dry brushing on your body. Before taking a shower, brush your skin gently with long and firm strokes with a medium sized body brush. This will make your skin incredibly smooth and also increase the blood circulation.
6. Soft Feet:
You can use any old face cream for this purpose. Just apply it overnight and wear thin cotton socks before going to sleep. You will have the softest skin in the morning!
