Blogmas: Beauty Hacks.

21 December 2013
One of the most common questions I get from clients is: Do you have a trick for (insert everything and anything beauty related here)? Most of these are easily answered and widely known by people who are interested in makeup and beauty products but there are a few that are both weird and not commonly used. Occasionally when I'm working on a photo shoot things pop up that need to be dealt with on the spot and today I'm going to bring you just a few of my weirdest beauty hacks, all of which I have used, most multiple times. I'll let you use your imagination as to why I needed to use these solutions.

Out of Dry Shampoo or baby powder? Dip a big fluffy brush in to your translucent powder and dust it over your oily roots, massage as you would with a dry shampoo and repeat process if necessary until satisfied with the results. 

Ever seen an armpit that needs exfoliating? Face scrubs actually work quite well here, they are good for the soft skin under there.

If your cheeks are flushed use a bold lipstick, it'll distract from your cheeks.

Accidentally get mascara on your eyelid and it's threatening to ruin your eyeshadow? Don't wipe it away instantly, let it dry completely before taking a cotton tip, placing it over the mascara smudge and twisting the cotton bud gently. It should loosen and lift the mascara without ruining the hard work you put in to your eyeshadow. 

Short lashes? Apply mascara and dust baby powder or translucent powder over the tips of your lashes with a small fluffy brush or cotton tip, apply another coat of mascara and be glad you didn't spend $20 on that lash fiber crap.

Baby oil, conditioner or coconut oil make great shaving lubricants when you're in a pinch (even when you're not, they are still great).

If your polish is chipped and you don't have time to fix it; apply a glitter coat or crackle over the top to mask the mess.

If your roots are growing out and you don't have time to colour; use an eyeshadow of the same colour to touch them up in a pinch. Avoid the shimmer of course.

Sometimes there is no beauty hack for the problem and I just want to do this:

  1. Brilliant tips hon - I can't tell you how much of a blessing it is to find them all on the one page! And I'm in awe of your blogmas posts - I'm struggling to put together two in a week, but one every day is PHENOMENAL!

    1. Thank you Kat hun :) Blogmas has actually been quite easy, it's only been the last few days that I've had a hard time pulling them together. I think next year I'll start planning early in November and it won't be an issue at all.
