Ladies, for all the best beauty tips, you’ve arrived at the right place. We understand that most of us are on a tight budget and we gloss over fashion editorials with a tinge of loathing because all the women just look so perfect. Don’t ever forget that everything is perfectly styled and photo shopped, so don’t beat yourself up. We can’t all be rich lotto millionaires, so here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your daily beauty routines. So go ahead, and get gorgeous!
8 Beauty Tips
#1 Freeze Your Eyeliner
Are you fed up with trying to put eyeliner on when it’s constantly crumbling and smudging your perfect lines? We’ve all been there. In fact, far too often, this is why we’ve come up with a way to help combat this annoying thing. Leave your eyeliner in the freezer for at least 15 minutes prior to applying your makeup. It should glide smoothly along your lash line quite seamlessly after that.
#2 Shave with Conditioner
Say what? If you’ve run out of shaving cream, or if you are currently using soap to lather your legs, think again! Using conditioner instead will soften the hair on your legs and make it easier to shave. It will also leave your skin feeling extra silky.
#3 Rinse Your Hair with Beer or Vinegar
Rinsing your hair with beer helps to restore moisture to your hair. The vinegar will up the ante in shine. Soak your hair in either liquid (not simultaneously) for a few minutes, and then rinse with cold water when you are done soaking.
#4 Turn Up the Heat
For all the ladies out there wanting curlier and flirtier lashes, then we recommend heating your lash curler with a hair dryer for a few seconds before curling them. The heat from the lash curler will help bend your lashes more easily; similar to what a straightener would do to your hair.
#5 Don’t Neglect Your Elbows
It can be quite easy to forget about your elbows since you rest on them all day and don’t really see them because they’re on the back of your arms. The best cure for dry elbows is to rub Bio-Oil onto them every day. You’ll feel softer elbows in two days, and your boyfriend will too…
#6 Lighten Hair with Chamomile Tea And Lemon Juice
This tip is superb for those of you who are afraid to dye your hair because of the yucky peroxide. For a more natural remedy to this hair problem, you can rinse your hair with a mixture of chamomile and fresh lemon juice instead of conditioner to permanently lighten your locks. Let your hair dry while sitting in the sun or by using a blow dyer – the heat will help activate the lemon juice and lighten your hair. Perfect for blondes and brunettes!
#7 De-Puff Eyes with Raw Potatoes
A dermatologist at Skinworks recommends using raw potato slice to soothe your eyes. She says that they are astringent, meaning they help decrease water retention and also contain the enzyme catalase which helps lighten dark under eye circles. Wash and peel the potato. Cut two slices and place one on each eye for 10 minutes. Relax with them on for a while. Then rinse your eyes gently with lukewarm water and ta-da! You’re beautiful again.
#8 Say Cheers to Makeup Sponges
Sponges make us so angry because the company who created them are sly. You waste so much foundation on sponges due to the majority of the liquid seeping into the sponge and drying there. Get a foundation brush. You waste less, they are easier to clean, and you get a more even and precise application.
Now that we’ve enlightened you on how to become more naturally beautiful without any artificial chemicals and expensive gimmick products to avoid, all we have left to say is to get out there and be beautiful!
