12+ Times Beauty Addicts Were Smarter Than The Rest Of Us

There are so many people on the internet these days providing helpful beauty advice. From saving money when you use simple tools for makeup application instead of expensive Beauty Blenders, to achieving results in half the time.

These beauty addicts have done the work for us and we should be grateful for it. So I've put a list together with some unusual beauty hacks we can all check out.

1. A Trick For Rosy Lips

Who knew you can use Tumeric and milk to achieve the perfect rosy lips look. Apparently, the curcumin in Tumeric lightens lips naturally.

2. Get Some Beauty Sleep

There is something to the old adage of getting some beauty sleep. When you sleep your body has time to rejuvenate itself and repair.

3. Use Castor Oil For Beautiful Hair And Lashes

Castor oil is wonderful for those delicate hairs like your eyebrows or eyelashes. Apply nightly to see great results.

4. Use Eye Shadow As Lipstick


If you've run out of your favorite lipstick but have an eye shadow in a similar shade, just mix it with some clear gloss and dab it on your lips.

5. Dry Hair In An Old T-Shirt


The cotton material in your T-shirt is less harsh and will let your hair retain more moisture. And it prevents frizzy hair. Yipee!

6. False Eyelash Application Trick


Never struggle applying false eyelashes again. Cut them up into thirds before applying. Then simply apply the lashes one section at a time. Genius.

7. DIY Activated Charcoal Mask


Mix 2 tablespoons of activated charcoal with 1.5 tablespoons of agar powder. Dissolve in hot water until jelly-like. Apply on your face for 30 minutes.

8. Instant Lip Volume


If you can't afford to plump your lips, there's an easy trick you can use. Line your lips with a lipliner lighter than your natural lip color to make them appear fuller.

9. Apply Mascara Using A Business Card


Don't worry about smudging that just applied eye shadow if you use a business card to apply your mascara. What a neat trick.

10. Eye Shadow Root Touch-Up


Quickly touch-up those roots between colorings when you use an eye shadow in a similar shade and blend it in with a makeup brush.

11. Silicone Bra As Beauty Blender


Not everyone can afford to buy that expensive beauty blender. Well, now you don't have to. Just use a silicone bra instead!

13. Use Cold Water To Set Nail Polish


No more waiting for your polish to dry!
