5 Random Beauty Tricks That Make All The Difference

Today’s post is about the random, yet useful beauty hacks I’ve learned over the years. As we get older, I think we learn what works for us and what doesn’t. All those awkward stages pave the way to finding your ‘look’ – yes 90s brows I’m talking about you!

I’ve been given quite a few beauty and makeup tips over the years. Some useful, some not so much and some which are really random that they actually work!

So I thought I’d share them with you….

1. Don’t put your eye creams or serums on just before getting into bed. If you’re lying on your side with your face squished into the pillow, the creams will get into the creases. This will not help with wrinkle prevention! It will do the opposite, apparently. Instead put the products on 20 mins beforehand and let them dry and sink into the skin before lying down.

2. If you want more volume don’t brush wet hair straight away. Instead rough dry it with a towel and leave for approx 10 – 20 mins. Then proceed to detangle. If you brush your hair down straight away, you’re flattening your roots. Instead let it dry slightly first. This also reduces the risk of breaking your hair. Bonus.

13. If you’ve dry lips, pat your lipstick or lip gloss on for a smoother effect. Going from aircon to heating can leave lips feeling a little dryer than we’d like. Instead of lashing layers of lipstick over your lips, only for it to start to clump, try patting it on. Pat it on with the lipstick / wand itself, rub lips together, then dab a small bit more on with your fingers. It gives a much smoother look to your lips.

I alternate between whitening toothpastes and volumising shampoos (every 2-3 weeks) I find that my hair and in some cases, my teeth, get too used to the product and so start to react slower to the benefits. By switching every few weeks, you still get the same effects you did in the beginning.

5. Layer cheaper and expensive foundation together. By putting a layer of my ‘everyday’ aka less expensive foundation on first, only a small amount of the more premium option is needed. I tend to just dab a small bit of my current favourite; Double Wear on over my Rimmel offering. This results in the same effect, but less expenditure overall. Something I try to apply to all things in life!

So there you have it, my weird but useful beauty tricks. They may not work for everyone, but I have definitely benefited from them.
