Every woman is good at taking care of others and herself. However, taking good care of yourself might require a lot of time and effort, which is probably why most woman ignore themselves.
Time is money, so we’re going to show you these 16 beauty tricks that will help you save some time.
Take a look:
#1. Gel for your eyebrows
Instead of using gel for your eyebrows, this blogger commends applying some ordinary hairspray. Spray some onto a special eyebrow comb, or use an old mascara brush. Smooth out your eyebrows right after using the spray.
#2. Nail whitening
To make them look clean and white again, soak a cotton wool pad in lemon juice, wrap it around your nail, and then cover it with foil. Keep it like this for 10-15 minutes, then remove. The details are here.
#3. Remember when to use a product by
Write the date on the bottle using a marker immediately after opening it for the first time.
#4. Broken nail?
An ordinary tea bag will help you cope with that catastrophe known as a broken nail. Remove the tea leaves from the bag, and cut off a piece to fit your nail. Stick it on the spot where your nail has broken, and cut off any excess that goes beyond the length of your nail.
#5. Dry mascara
To bring dry mascara back to life, this blogger commends using eye drops or contact lens fluid. Add a few drops to the mascara tube, close it, and shake a few times.
#6. Cleaning hair straighteners and curlers
To clean your hair straighteners or hair curlers, mix together some baking soda with hydrogen peroxide, and wipe it along the surface using a soft tissue. Then wipe one more time with a completely dry tissue, as shown here.
#7. Use blusher to give your lipstick a matte finish
To give your lips a luxurious matte look, use blusher as shown here.
Before applying your nail polish, apply some lip balm or Vaseline to the skin around your nails. This will prevent any polish from staining your skin, because it can be removed easily with a brush or Q-tip as shown here.
#9. Cosmetics while travelling
This will soften any blows that come from being shaken around. Find the instructions here.
#10. Plate to wash brushes
Take an ordinary single-use plastic or paper plate, and make random shapes on its surface using hot glue. When the glue has dried, mix together some water and shampoo, and rub your brushes against the plate until the water running from them turns clear.
#11. Dried-out eyeliner
If your eyeliner pen has dried out, just remove the brush head and turn it round, as shown here.
#12. Baby oil

#13. A soak for the skin on your feet
For baby-soft skin on your feet, wash them in the following mixture taken from this blog:
- 2 cups of warm water
- 1 cup of vinegar
- 1 cup of mouthwash
#14. Hair static
To get rid of static and smooth out your hair, just use ordinary dryer sheets. Pass them through the full length of your hair. Find the instructions here.
#15. Lipstick trick
This blogger offers some useful advice for using lipstick. After applying it to your lips, suck your finger for a moment. This will leave any excess lipstick on your finger and not on your lips.
#16. Hacks for skin and travel
