All my makeup addicts out there and my beauty gurus, too, could you please raise your hand?? Aight, I see you! This one is for you. I made this because I care about my time and I care about my money and I want to pass down those words of wisdom to all my makeupholics and beauty hack rebels in the house! And if you’re a wise one, you better go ahead and scroll down!

1. Don’t give up on your broken powder based products

How many times did you break your brand new face bronzer, highlighter, powder, eyeshadow?…should I go on? And how many times were you left sobbing after they ended up literally exploding in your handbag and you were left with pigment covered bag contents in the shade of Moonlight? Well, not on my watch! All you need is a bottle of rubbing alcohol that you could buy from your nearest pharmacy. Rubbing alcohol is a clear and inexpensive liquid, as well. After that all you need to do is get a spoon or even better, a dropper. Add a decent amount to either of them and then just pour it into your powdery mess and let the alcohol sink. Then, let your product sit for approximately 10-15 minutes. You can smooth your product out with a knife mid-dry phase. Yep, that’s it. You’re done.

2. Chapped lips? no problem

Run to the kitchen, now! What you’ll need: a clean container, honey, olive oil and sugar. Mix all your ingredients together and congratulations! Look what you’ve created you miracle child you! You now have a perfect, natural scrub at hand any time you need it. Just dab your finger into the mixture and then rub that magic onto your lips for instantly smooth like a baby’s tooshie lips! Just don’t forget to moisturize your lips afterwards, that’s a must!

3. Don’t cry if you don’t have the ingredients in no. 2

Okay, so you’re some kind of hooligan who doesn’t have sugar and honey at home, fine by me! You could still exfoliate your lips using your toothbrush while brushing your teeth. Here’s how it goes; you go for your normal brushing routine, alright? You place a swirl of that Signal goodness onto your toothbrush and then you add a little water before you start brushing your teeth. While at it, brush your lips, too. Don’t go too hard though or else you’ll cut your lip. That’s literally it yeah.

4. Say goodbye to after shaving bumps!

So, your arms and legs are tired of all that last minute shaving that you end up doing more often than you’d like. That’s alright, not entirely, but at least for now, here’s what you can do to get rid of that skin irritation. Go make black tea! Yep! You heard it, go fix yourself a cup of black tea and add some vinegar to it. Afterwards, take that teabag out and rub it onto the irritated area. You’re welcome, sister.

5. Now you have a dry ass mascara and no cash to buy yourself a new one

This one’s incredibly easy, especially for those who wear contact lenses. Simply, just add some lens solution to your mascara tube then shake it really well and you’re all set, sugar!

6. Farewell to rusty silver rings/jewellery 

Coca Cola was created for a much greater purpose than drinking, it was created for silverware cleaning! Don’t believe me? try it! All you need is a glass container (preferably) and a bottle of coke. Pour a generous amount of the drink into the container and then place your rusty silver ring in it. Leave it in there for an hour and voila! Your ring is shinier than it’s ever been!

7. Numb the pain away

Does tweezing your eyebrows piss you off as hell because of all the times you accidentally pick your skin instead?! Well, child, I feel ya! Now forget all that irritation because I have the solution for you: ICE CUBES ALL THE WAY! Just gently rub an ice cube on the area you’re about to use your tweezers on and experience the beautiful numbness that follows. Tweeze away your troubles and never pick your little hairs before numbing the area with an ice cube first! Makes all the difference.

8. Get celebrity like flawless looking legs NOW

Yes yes, I used to go nuts for those Kate Beckinsale legs, too! I mean, look at how smooth they are! There are great airbrush products out there that actually achieve that same result, like Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs, but they’re all PRETTY pricy! I got my last one for 500 L.E. and I’ve been crying since! But you don’t have to go through the same mistakes I’ve made because now you can make your own leg foundation at home and it’s a piece of cake! All you need is a container, body lotion and concealer/foundation. I swear to God, that IS IT. Mix the two together and then smooth the mixture onto those legs of yours, let dry for twenty minutes before you put on your clothes! Enjoy!

9. Stop buying makeup removers

Instead of wasting your money on expensive makeup removing products, invest in a bottle of good ol’ coconut oil. First off, coconut oil wipes off all your makeup with a swipe no matter how heavy your makeup is, second, coconut oil doesn’t irritate your skin or cause redness while removing your makeup, third, coconut oil will leave your skin moisturized so, you won’t have to use a face cream afterwards unlike other makeup removing products.

10. Dry your nails faster

Do you seriously have to run but you’re afraid of ruining your oh so precious freshly painted nails? no worries. Just dip your nails into a bowl filled with cold water (Yes, like cold cold) and leave them in for a while. They’ll dry way faster this way!

Capiche?? You got this!
