8 Brilliant Beauty Hacks Every Girl Should Know

Written by Grace & Silas

Since many of you really liked the beauty tips that I’ve found before, I thought I’d do another search for some awesome makeup and hygiene hacks. As girls, there’s a lot to remember when we want to look and feel our best, so any tips and tricks will help (especially when we don’t always have the time to spend an hour in the bathroom). So down below, I found some great hacks from other bloggers who found some awesome ideas.

I love finding other people’s lists of tips and hacks and sharing them with my readers. And I especially love giving you guys the link to the list I found them from. It gives you guys the opportunity to see even more great sources from awesome bloggers. So check out what I’ve found and head to the bottom if you want to see even more!

Use a Lip Brush to Apply Mascara to Lower Lashes


Found from Buzzfeed: See Source Below

I think applying mascara to the bottom lashes is one of the hardest things to do. You think you’ve got it until the wand barely touches your skin and then it’s everywhere. And don’t even get me started if you have to sneeze; it looks like you just became the Joker. But that’s what lip brushes are for apparently; making mascara just a little easier to apply.

Heat Proof Summer Beauty – Victoria’s Secret Tinted Moisturizer


Found from Hairspray & Highheels: See Source Below

Whether it’s hot right now or not, I think we can all agree that makeup that’s not going to melt off our skin is basically a need. I have an oily face, so this find, from Hairspray & Highheels, is definitely a saver.

Use Hydrogen Peroxide to Lighten Your Hair


Found from Wrapped in Rust: See Source Below

If you want some easy highlights, just do an equal parts (50/50) mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water. Then spray it on your hair, let it dry, and repeat daily until your hair is where you want it. Super simple right?

Use a Lighter Eyeliner on the Bottom Lid


Found from Listotic: See Source Below

If you want your eyes to pop, use a little bit of eyeliner on your bottom lid, but make sure it’s a lighter color. And go ahead and use a nude color on your tear duct to make your eyes look even bigger. It’s definitely a look that will make you stand out (in the good way).

Put Deodorant on the Bridge of Your Nose


Found from One Crazy House: See Source Below

If the sun just isn’t letting up and it’s getting pretty hot out, apply deodorant to the bridge of your nose to keep it from getting shiny (clear deodorant I’d assume).

Use Petroleum Jelly to Avoid Mascara Clumps


Found from Society 19: See Source Below

Ever in a rush in the morning and trying to get your mascara just right when it decides to clump? Yeah, not fun. But that’s why petroleum jelly is so handy (usually known as the brand name Vaseline). Apply a little to your lashes before putting on mascara, and you’ll be sure to avoid clumps.

Silverware Divider for the Bathroom


Found from The Cottage Market: See Source Below

Whether you want to use a silverware divider for your hygiene or makeup, this is a great way to keep things organized and easy to reach. Definitely great, especially if you’re in a rush in the morning and don’t feel like digging through your drawer to find that one thing you need.

Get Free Samples of Almost Any Product in Sephora


Found from The Krazy Coupon Lady: See Source Below

Now I definitely count this as a beauty hack. When you go to Sephora, just ask for a sample of their foundations, perfumes, powders, and even lipstick. Then you’ll have some free makeup on the go without dropping forty bucks out the door.

I’ve found that many of these beauty hacks really do work. It’s so handy when you have just a few tricks up your sleeve to make things a little easier (or save yourself some money). Being a girl can get complicated (unless you super low maintenance, then props to you my fine lady), so check out the rest of the hacks from these awesome bloggers, and be sure to let me know in the comments below if you have any makeup tips yourself! I’d love to hear about them!
