12 Beauty Hacks That Will Change Your Life

1 | To make lipstick last longer, apply lipstick as normal but then place a tissue over the lips and brush translucent powder lightly over the tissue and remove. This will make the lipstick last much longer. 

2 | Apply concealer in a triangle shape outward from beneath each eye to form a triangle. This will give a better lift to the eye along with lightening it up. 

3 | To create the perfect cat eye/winged eyeliner look place a credit card at the outer corner of your eye and line it up to the end of your eyebrow. Hold it in place while you contour your lids with shadow. When you're done, you'll have a perfectly straight, symmetrical template to trace with your liner to create a flawless cat eye. 

4 | Adding a drop of peppermint oil or a pinch of cinnamon in your lip balm, gives your lips an instant plump. 

5 | Before applying nail polish, store it in the fridge. You'll never have to worry about air bubbles ever again. 

6 | Heat up your eyelash curler with a hair dyer to help your lashes curl easier and stayed curled for longer. When the lash curler heats up wait until it cools slightly (you don't want to burn your eyelid) then clamp down on your lashes to curl them. 

7 | After painting your nails, air dry them for a couple of minutes and then place them into cold water for a minute or two. Your nails will dry almost instantly. 

8 | Before applying lipstick draw an 'x' on the centre of your upper lip with your lipstick to get the perfect cupids bow. 

9 | Apply vaseline on your pulse points before spraying on your perfume to make the scent last longer. 

10 | Applying white eyeliner on your waterline makes your eyes appear less red, brighter and larger. 

11 | Easily create ombre nails by painting the colours you wish to use onto a sponge and applying it onto the nail. 

12 | To create your own gel eyeliner using a regular eyeliner pencil, hold the pencil over a flame for one second. Allow the eyeliner pencil to then cool for 15 seconds and then apply to your eyes for a bolder look.
