#1 Cotton For Lash Lifts
Tired of flat, boring eyelashes?
Use cotton to get that desired lift!
Rub your mascara wand on a cotton pad so that it gets completely covered with a thin layer of cotton fibers. Run the wand over your eyelashes so as to get your lashes coated with the cotton from the wand. Then, apply a generous coat of mascara onto your lashes.
The Verdict: This instantly gives your lashes that desired lift, making your lashes look sinfully lush and fluttery!
#2 Red Lipstick For Dark Circles
You’ve probably only thought of lipstick as to be applied onto your lips. Well, there are other uses to this cosmetic product as well. You can use your red lipstick as a colour corrector to conceal your dark circles. Just dab slightly with a red lipstick under your eyes on the area of the dark circles before you apply the concealer and watch those dark circles magically disappear!
The verdict: Works well, but only if you use a light hand. Applying with a heavy hand will have you looking like a blood-sucking vampire!
#3 DIY Gel Liner
You don’t need to splurge all your savings on gel eyeliners anymore!
All you’ve got to do is heat up the kohl with a flame so as to soften it and it will transform into a fabulous gel liner for you.
The Verdict: You need to be extremely careful while heating the kohl since there’s a chance that you might burn your skin if you overheat it.
#4 Used Tea Bags For Chapped Lips
Treating chapped lips does not necessarily have to be the tedious task that you know it to be. You can always use a lip balm but if you’re looking for quick and more effective results, this hack might just be the one for you.
Wet your lips with cold water and place a used tea bag on them. Let it sit on your lips for a good 5 to 10 minutes before taking it off.
The verdict: This hack is our showstopper, our trump card. You’ll certainly have baby soft lips by the end of it!
#5 Soap As Brow Wax
If you’ve run out of your brow pomade, don’t panic! You can use your regular everyday soap bar to set your brows in place. Sounds weird, doesn’t it?
Well, the waxy texture of the soap gives you fuller, denser brows in a fashion similar to that of an eyebrow gel, only much better.
All you need to do is wet a brow brush with warm water, rub it onto your bar of soap, and run the brush over your brow hair to set it in place.
The Verdict: This hack sets your brow like a pro!
