Every girl knows that taking care of yourself and looking like a million dollars requires a lot of time and effort.
We at Bright Side are always on the lookout for ways to make your life easier, and that’s why we’ve put together these 17 ingenious beauty tricks to help you save time.
An alternative to gel for your eyebrows
Instead of using gel for your eyebrows, this blogger recommends applying some ordinary hairspray. Spray some onto a special eyebrow comb, or use an old mascara brush. Smooth out your eyebrows right after using the spray.
Whitening your nails
Your fingernails can take on a yellowish tint if you use lots of different dark polish colors. To make them look clean and white again, soak a cotton wool pad in lemon juice, wrap it around your nail, and then cover it with foil. Keep it like this for 10-15 minutes, then remove. The details are here.
Remembering when to use a product by
Most of the time companies use this symbol to indicate how long you can use a beauty product after it’s been opened. So that you don’t forget when exactly this will be, write the date on the bottle using a marker immediately after opening it for the first time.
Emergency help for a broken nail
An ordinary tea bag will help you cope with that catastrophe known as a broken nail. Remove the tea leaves from the bag, and cut off a piece to fit your nail. Stick it on the spot where your nail has broken, and cut off any excess that goes beyond the length of your nail. Now use a nail file to shape, and then cover with a base coat of polish.
Eye drops for dry mascara
To bring dry mascara back to life, this blogger recommends using eye drops or contact lens fluid. Add a few drops to the mascara tube, close it, and shake a few times. Now it should be as good as new.
Cleaning hair straighteners and curlers
To clean your hair straighteners or hair curlers, mix together some baking soda with hydrogen peroxide, and wipe it along the surface using a soft tissue. Then wipe one more time with a completely dry tissue, as shown here.
Use blusher to give your lipstick a matte finish
To give your lips a luxurious matte look, use blusher as shown here. Just be careful to choose the right shade.
