Here are 23 of the very best beauty hacks we are thrilled to share with you for hair, skin, and body…
1 || For A Dewy, Model-Like Complexion
Mix a dollop of liquid highlighter in with your face moisturizer. If you want coverage and dewiness, combine the highlighter with your favorite foundation, BB cream, or tinted moisturizer.
2 || Avoid Lipstick From Staining Your Teeth
If you’re wearing a bold lip chances are, color will end up on your teeth. So ensure that the color stays off by using these two quick and easy post-lipstick steps. Put your finger in your mouth and pull it out. You’ll be amazed how much lipstick ends up on the inner part of your lip. Or you can coat your teeth with a thin layer of vaseline, any misplaced lipstick will slide right off.
3 || Cut Your Morning Shower Time in Half
If you’re a morning hair washer, shampoo and condition your locks simultaneously. Lather up the top of your head, run conditioner from the middle to the tips, then rinse out both at the same time. Your roots are where you need shampoo the most (dirt oil, and products build up there), while the ends require hydration and minimal cleaning..
4 || Spruce Up Your Nails in Minutes
If you don’t have time for a manicure, clean and brighten nails by buffing them with a toothbrush and a dab of whitening toothpaste. Finish with a swipe of hydrating cuticle oil for a pretty and healthy-looking sheen.
5 || Shiny Face? Grab Your Hand Sanitizer
Combat a shiny face with your hand sanitizer. The ingredient that works for this trick is dimethicone, a type of silicone. It smooths like a primer and provides a protective coat locking in moisture which creates the shine. You can use this along the hair line, your forehead, T-zone or if you have glistening cleavage..
