10 Weird & Wonderful Beauty Tips

Beauty tips and tricks are everywhere, but have you ever tried these unique beauty tips?


1. USE FOIL TO TIGHTEN PORES AND REDUCE PUFFINESS

Chill strips of foil in the freezer and apply to your face in the morning to reduce puffiness and tighten pores.

2. USE LIP BALM AS A CUTICLE CONDITIONER

Instead of carrying your cuticle oils out and about with you, give your cuticles a boost of life with this quick fix. Apply lip balm onto your cuticles and massage it in.


3. REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF WRINKLES AND EYE BAGS WITH PREPARATION H

Be careful around the eyes with this one as this cream is meant for, um, somewhere else. It has been rumoured in the beauty world, that applying Preparation H can temporarily remove wrinkles as it tightens the skin and reduce the appearance of eye bags as it reduces swelling.

4. PREP YOUR EYELIDS LIKE THE REST OF YOUR FACE

I would have never thought this was a weird one, but it turns out not everyone knows to use primer, foundation/BB cream and powder on your eyelids as you do the rest of your face. The skin on your lids is thinner than the rest of the face so preparing the base will even out colouration of the skin and setting the foundation or BB cream with a powder will make blending your eye shadow 100% easier!

5. STEAM YOURWAY TO A MATTE POLISH

If you want a matte nail effect, but don't own a matte polish; carefully hold your hand over the steam from boiling water in a pan or the kettle while your nails are still wet. This should instantly turn your nail polish matte. Be very careful with this as you don't want to burn yourself, keep your hand moving and don't put your hand too close.

6. USE BEER AS A HAIR VOLUMISER

Put beer into a bottle with a spritz nozzle and spray onto your hair when you need a boost; the yeast in the beer thickens your hair.


7. GET SLEEK HAIR WITHOUT DROWNING IN PRODUCT

If you want to get rid of flyaways and frizz, spray your favourite hair product into your hands and rub them together. Run your hands through your hair for a smooth finish without coating it in heavy products.

8. THICKEN THE APPEARANCE OF LASHES WITH LOOSE POWDER

After applying your first coat of mascara; apply loose powder to your lashes, carefully, and then apply a second coat.

9. USE TEA AND COFFEE TO CHANGE THE COLOUR OF YOUR HAIR

There are many different products you can use to lighten and darken your hair. I myself have tried a lot of them and can tell you that they most definitely work - 'How to: Boost your hair colour, naturally!'


10. USE VASELINE OR BODY OIL TO ENHANCE YOUR PERFUME

Pop a little Vaseline or body oil where you intend to spray your perfume, this will lock in the scent and make your perfume last much longer.
