6 Beauty Hacks to Save Your Day

Posted by Wynne Treco on

We’ve all run into trouble with makeup before. Either you forgot to pack all your products, or don’t have enough space for everything. So, I’ve compiled some quick and easy makeups hacks! Whether you’re in a rush, low on your makeup products, or looking to save money, these beauty tips are sure to help!

1.Make your own lip gloss or lip balm!

Don’t throw away those broken eyeshadows! They can be used to create customized lip gloss. Simply crush the broken eyeshadow into a fine powder, and mix it with petroleum jelly (you may need to heat it up in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it). Now you'll have your own custom shade of lip gloss!

2. Not just for your lips...

If you forgot to pack your blush, and don’t have time to run out to buy some-this tip is for you! Just grab your pink or red lipstick, and dab it lightly on your cheeks. When you feel you have enough color, blend the lipstick in lightly with your fingers. The lipstick acts as a cream blush, but just make sure you don’t add too much!

3. Dried up mascara? No worries!

If your mascara is dried up, you can revitalize it! Just pour a couple drops of your contact solution into the mascara tube. Keep adding drops until you have the right consistency. This quick tip will help you when you don’t have time to buy more mascara.  Only use this tip if your mascara is less than 3 months old!  You should toss your mascara once it is older than 3 months to avoid harmful bacteria.

4. Stubborn makeup? Go natural.

Just hit up your pantry! Coconut oil, grape seed oil, and avocados are all great ingredients that can remove your makeup! Plus, they all have amazing health benefits. Avocados contain omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D, and E which are great for your under eyes. Grapeseed oil doubles as anti-wrinkle and acne face cleanser. And coconut oil is an amazing natural moisturizer!

5. Plump your lips with peppermint!

Want to instantly add some volume to your lips without an exfoliating scrub? Easy! Just add a couple of drops of peppermint oil to your lip balm or lip gloss! Not only will this make your lip balm smell amazing, but the oils will help you quickly achieve fuller lips. You can even mix some peppermint oil with coconut oil to create your own lip plumper.

6. Your mascara is multifunctional too!

No need to pack your eyeliner! You can use your mascara as a wet eyeliner! Grab a thin, angled makeup brush, and sweep up the mascara off of the mascara brush. Then, apply it to your lid.
