Looking to simplify your life? Even the smallest things can make a big difference, and we always love all the help we can get – in any department! That's why I LOVE beauty hacks because they're simple to follow, but also make you go “oh wow, how come I never though of that!”. But with so much on our plates, who has time to think of stuff like that? That's ok though, because we did the work for you! Check out these next 8 genius beauty hacks and save time, sanity, and also have some fun!
8 Amazing Beauty Hacks
#1. Use Hydrogen Peroxide To Lighten Your Locks
We all know the old lemon juice in your hair trick, but have you ever heard of hydrogen peroxide to lighten your locks? It's true! Simply mix equal parts hydrogen peroxide with equal parts water in a spray bottle and apply where you'd like to highlights, or all over! Let it dry, then repeat daily until you achieve your desired lightness.
#2. Use a Lighter Eyeliner On The Bottom Lid
Most people use the same shade of eyeliner on the bottom of the lid as they do on top (and it's mostly black). This will actually make your eyes smaller though. Instead, go for black on top and use a lighter shade, like a light brown on the bottom lid. Make your eyes pop even more by tracing a nude liner on your tear duct.
#3. Use Deodorant To Prevent Shine
On those hot, summer days, deodorant isn't just for your pits! Apply it to the bridge of your nose to minimize shine, as well as on the upper lip so you don't get that sweat stache.
#4. Avoid Mascara Clumps With Vaseline
Petroleum jelly, or Vaseline, has hundreds of uses! Apply a tiny amount to your lashes before putting on mascara and completely avoid those annoying lumps!
#5. Use a Cutlery Divider to Stay Organized
Those cutlery holders aren't just for silverware and cutlery! Put them in your bathroom and stay organized. Whether you want to put your toothbrushes in it like the picture above, or use it for eyeliners, mascaras, etc…
#6. Request Free Samples At Sephora
If you didn't already know this, you're in for a treat! Check out your local Sephora and ask for a free sample of your favorite foundation, lipstick, powders, perfumes, and even eyeshadows. That way, you get to walk out the door with a mini-haul that's perfect for on-the-go!
#7. Create a Perfect Cat Eye Using a Card
Follow the picture above to get perfect cat eye every.single.time. Fool proof and genius!
#8. Contour by Following The Figure 3 Onto Your Face
Contouring has never been easier! All you have to do is create a figure 3 onto your face starting above your brows, going onto your cheeks, and finishing right underneath the jaw line.
