Now that you are a college-going girl, wearing that overgrown baby hair near your temples is not an option.

It’s time to make sure your baby hair settles down and if your conditioner is not doing the trick on a bad day, use a tooth brush!

Just spritz some hair spray on a tooth brush and use this to brush the hair into place.

One of the most time-consuming beauty processes is drying your nail paint. If you’ve noticed, using the hair-dryer on your fingers doesn’t help either.

To dry your nails in 1 minute flat, just dip your painted nails in a bowl full of ice cubes and water. This will seal the nail paint, dry it super quick and prevent it from chipping

You just bought a brand new mascara a couple of weeks ago and its already drying up? Drop in it a few drops of your lens solution to revive it.

If you apply your kajal to the T in the morning and by mid-day it starts to smudge, here’s what you can do. After applying your kajal, just dab some loose powder on the area under your eyes, which will absorb any excess oil and pack the kajal in.

If you ask us, our pick is the quick and safe, Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal that is both waterproof and smudge-proof and will help you ace the perfect look with just one stroke.
