What is it with keeping up a beauty regime? It’s so much hard work and can take a lot of time and effort. Luckily, if you are smart about the hacks and tips, you use you can cut some of the grind out of looking your best. With that in mind, read on to discover some clever tips that you didn’t even realise you needed, until now!
Always set your makeup
Loose powder is a popular makeup item for a reason! That reason is that absorbs all the extra product and helps your makeup set on your skin. That mens you get to keep your look for longer, no matter what the temperature or weather.
It also means that you don’t get as shiny throughout the day because the powder absorbs any excess oil that your skin is producing. So ditch the pressed powder, or the no powder approach and go for the loose stuff every time.
Sleep on clean pillow
This is an old-school skin care hack, but it can really work. It’s all about changing that pillowcase regularly. Yes, we are all busy, but a few additional pillowcase don’t cost much or take too long to wash and dry.
Then after a few days, you can replace them, and you know that there will be nothing against your skin that will cause blemishes. You can even turn them over each night, so you always get a clean side each time. Trust me your skin will thank you for it.
Put your perfume on right
Next, a hack that so many women need to know but don’t is how to apply perfume properly. If you though a squirt at the neck was the right choice then it’s time to up your game.
In fact, applying perfume to a brush and pulling that through your hair can give you a much better and long lasting result. Although, if you are looking for something a little more subtle why not go for an application behind the knees instead?
Wax those brows
How long do you spend plucking your eyebrows each month? Is it a fun job, or does it make you squint and sneeze? If so, then you will be happy to hear that you can get the perfect brow very simply and quickly by using waxing techniques instead of plucking or threading.
All you need to do is take 2 double-sided wax strips and cut them to the shape of your brow. Then apply and remove while holding the skin tight and the under brow is completed in one go. Then take the other strips and tidy up any strays in the middle and you are done for another whole month! Easy! Just don’t forget to apply some baby oil afterwards to calm the skin and remove any excess wax.
Add a little warmth to your face
Last, of all, we can spend so much time trying to get the perfect foundation match and blemishless skin that it’s easy to forget that a little warmth in the face is a good thing. In fact, a sweep of blusher or bronzer in the right areas can improve our look no end. Something you see how to do in the video below.
