Ladies, add these ten beauty secrets to your treasure chest to save time during your morning routine and ensure that you are always looking (and feeling) your very best.
01. Turn your eye pencil into a smooth gel liner for flawless application and long lasting finish. All you have to do is hold the tip of the pencil over a flame for two seconds and then let it cool for fifteen seconds before lining your eyes. Say hello to an intense smudge like never before!
02. The most excruciating part about painting your nails is waiting for them to dry; one misstep and you have to start all over again! To dry your talons quickly, immerse your nails in a bowl of cold water for a few minutes instead of waiting for them to air dry.
03. Make your own body scrub by combing one part of olive oil with two parts of brown sugar. If you want to smell like a goddess, add a few drops of essential oil or muddled mint leaves to the mix.
04. Greasy hair is never a good look, but what do you do when you are running late for work with no time to shampoo? Dry shampoo is your saving grace, but if you don۪t have any on hand, talcum power is equally effective (and much, much cheaper!) All you have to do is rub a little bit of powder into your hairline and you are good to go!
05. Forgot your lip balm? Don۪t stress. Simply dab a few drops of olive oil or honey for instant relief. Whatever you do, never, ever lick your lips because they will only become drier.
06. Let's face it ladies: nobody has the time to touch up their lipstick five times a day. Use one of the oldest tricks from the book to set your lip colour in place. After applying your lipstick, gently place a tissue over your smackers and brush powder on top. You're welcome.
07. Ladies, always pluck your eyebrows after a shower the hair will be softer so tweezing will hurt less. As a rule of thumb, always pluck from below as this allows you to maintain the arch of your brow with ease.
08. Never, ever go to sleep without removing your makeup! If you cannot get your hands on makeup remover or makeup wipes, use baby wipes instead. They will help you remove your makeup easily and are less harsh on your skin, too. Don't forget to carry a few in your handbag for emergencies!
09. Craving the perfect beach waves but scared of the damage your curling iron may cause? Beach babes, now you can create beautiful waves overnight with zero heat! All you have to do is braid your hair tightly before you go to bed. When you wake up, untangle the braids, spritz on some hairspray, give your tresses a bit of scrunching and you۪re good to go.
10. You've got a smile that could light up this whole town. Use it!
