Every woman knows how hard it is to always be perfect and how much time and effort is spent on it.
Luckily there are life hacks that can make any lady's life easier. Bright Side gathered some of the most valuable tricks that will help you look like a million dollars.
Mascara will conceal growing hair roots.
Ladies who dye their hair dark know how bad growing roots look.You can deal with this problem with the help of mascara: just apply it to the roots.
Natural curls can be achieved without tongs.
To make natural-looking waves in your hair, you don't have to own special tongs. You can just twist your dry hair and heat it with a hair dryer. If you've got thick hair, it'll take more than one twist.
A pencil is good for curling hair.
Another useful life hack for your hair: if you don't have round curling tongs, twist your hair over a pencil and heat each lock with a flat iron.
A tissue won't let your hair electrify.
If you attach a tissue to your brush like this, it'll stop accumulating hair. This also helps avoid electrified locks after combing.
Starch will solve the greasy hair issue.
Many ladies have trouble with their hair becoming oily too quickly. Few know, however, that it's easy to solve: your hair will remain clean for longer if you apply starch or talcum powder to the roots.
A toothbrush will add volume to your hair.
You can add volume to your hair without special shampoos or difficult styling. Just comb it layer by layer with a toothbrush from the ends to the roots. The change will be obvious.
Lavender oil will give you luxurious eyelashes.
Two drops of lavender oil added to your mascara will help separate the lashes and make them longer. It's worth mentioning that lavender oil also accelerates hair growth, so you'll be pleasantly surprised after using such a mascara for a few days.
Scotch tape will help with eye makeup.
Use Scotch tape as a guide to put on eye makeup, making it several times faster. To make the tape less harmful for tender facial skin, apply it to your hand first and then unstick it.
A Q-tip turns everyday makeup into an evening look.
To quickly turn your natural daily makeup into evening ones, simply shade the eyeliner with a Q-tip. Then add your favorite colors to the picture.
Your makeup brush can change its shape.
To apply quality makeup, you don't have to buy all kinds of brushes. This powder brush can become broad if you clasp it with a pin or narrow if you clip it with a rubber band.
Forget all about lipstick on your teeth.
Lipstick on the inner part of your lips stains your teeth and spoils your smile. Get rid of excess lipstick by putting your finger, a pencil, or even a spoon into your mouth and pulling it out through closed lips. The lipstick you don't need will be left on it.
Aspirin will strengthen your hair and get rid of red spots.
An aspirin scrub will make your skin smooth and help dispose of red spots. Take a couple of tablets, wet them in a small amount of water, apply to your face, and wash off in five minutes.
The same goes for your hair: crush two tablets of aspirin and mix them into your favorite shampoo. Wash your hair as usual, and soon your hair will become stronger, shinier, and rid of dandruff.
A Band-Aid can fix your earrings in place.
Earrings on a hook are never in the same place and constantly turn. To fix them in place, stick the tip of the hook to the inner part of your earlobe with a piece of Band-Aid.
Bra wires can also be concealed with Band-Aids.
The sprung wire of a bra can damage your skin and cause a painful injury. To protect yourself, stick a piece of Band-Aid to the torn part of your bra to hold off the sharp metal.
Antiseptic will solve your sweat issues.
Deodorant doesn't always completely conceal sweat odor. An unpleasant smell may occur because of bacteria spreading. You can prevent it by applying some antiseptic to your armpits or any other problem area.
Hair spray will prevent sliding of your feet.
Choosing the perfect shoes is a nearly impossible task: these will chafe, and those will have a gap in the back. To solve the latter issue, just apply some hair spray onto the soles of your feet, and it won't let them slide forward.
Use freshly ground coffee as a scrub.
Everybody knows that using coffee for exfoliating dead skin cells is a good idea. However, many girls scrub themselves with used coffee grounds. In fact, it is more effective to use fresh coffee. It is rich in caffeine that lifts skin and antioxidants that help to nourish it. After all, fresh coffee leaves a nice scent on your skin after you wash the crumbs off.
