Have you ever heard the expression “It takes pain to be beautiful” ? Sometimes it feels that way with plucking, waxing, treatments, and all that cash being sucked out of your wallet. There are some ways that you can make your routine a little easier on yourself and your wallet. Here are a few great beauty life hacks to save you some time and money.
5 Beauty Life Hacks
If you can’t Dye, Hide:
If you are low on money or don’t have the time to get to a salon, this is a great tip for when those pesky roots start to show. Instead of having your roots show, try applying dye to conceal the natural roots. There are also boxed root touch-up dyes you can pick up. These are great for those moments when you can’t stand to look at a stark contrast with your natural and dyed hair color. You could also put your hair into styles where your roots are less likely to show such as a ponytail, bun, or braid. Just hide it until you can get an appointment with a stylist!
Reduce the Pain in Tweezing:
Before you are about to tweeze, get into the shower or place a hot washcloth on your brows. This will open up your pores and make the hair easier to pluck out, resulting in less pain for you. This method may also reduce the amount of time it will take for you to pluck those unruly eyebrows.
Wait to Shave:
Wait to shave your legs until about 10 minutes after your shower, this will produce better results because the pores are opened up more. Try not to use scented shaving cream or lotion to shave with, as these products are more likely to contribute to razor burn. Going for unscented shaving cream can also save you money over scented products.
Protect your Lipstick from Bleeding:
This is an old trick that can keep you from looking deranged when it comes to your lipstick. Apply your lipstick and allow it to sit for a few minutes, then apply some similar colored powder and reapply the lipstick. This tip will allow your lip color to last longer and reduce smudging throughout the day.
Concealer on the Fly:
If you are in a pinch and need some concealer right away, you can make your own with a few drops of your foundation and some moisturizer or BB cream. Just mix the foundation and the moisturizer together to create your concealer. When applying use a sponge or concealer wand to get the best coverage. Now you know how to make concealer if you are ever in a time crunch!
