10 Beauty Hacks| From me to you

So today I thought I would share 10 tips and tricks that I find useful either on a daily basis or once every now and then. These are personal beauty tricks that I use and I hope you find them just as helpful as I do!



1. FOUNDATION
Mix foundation with moisturiser- this will help keep your skin moisturised during the winter months, it will help your foundation last longer (especially if you're waiting for pay day), and it will help add a natural dewy glow. I find this great, as the cold harsh wind can dry and irritate my skin.

2. MOISTURISER
Lay your moisturiser on its side to allow the cream to fall to one side of the pot to avoid it getting underneath your nails!

3. EYELINER & EYESHADOW
Place sellotape under your eye, following the bottom waterline and then out to where you would put your eyeliner flick. Use this as a ruler to get a straight winged liner and to get a straight even line when applying eyeshadow.

4. ACNE
Apply a couple of drops of lemon juice to acne to help lighten the scars. If you have sensitive skin then diluted it down in some water.

5. SHAPED EYEBROWS
Stray hairs in your eyebrows? Apply Vaseline and comb into the desired shape, do this for up to 3 months or until the stray hair is no longer..err stray?

6. SPLIT ENDS
Part your hair down the middle into two sections. One at a time, twist each section tightly, then using your index finger and thumb, lightly backcomb the twist. This will help you identify split ends so they can be trimmed away! Hurrah!

7. UNDER EYE CIRCLES
Apply concealer in an upside down triangle under the eyes (big base along the underneath of the eye with the thin tip down) this will help cover dark circles better.

8. PLUMP LIPS
If you want to make your lips plump like Kim Kardashian, try adding a few drops of peppermint oil to your lipgloss!

9. BIG EYES
Use a white or light shimmery coloured eyeshadow by the tear duct area of your eyes to create an illusion of bigger brighter eyes.

10. CONDITIONED HAIR
Coconut oil is a great way to repair damaged hair. Apply evenly throughout your hair and leave overnight (yes your hair will look super greasy but it’ll be worth it, place a towel over your pillowcase to protect it from the oil). In the morning shampoo twice to get rid of the oil and condition. Va-wala! You have beautiful soft shiny hair!
