Clean Your Makeup Brushes at Home
This is the exact way I clean makeup brushes, and you can find my original post here. Ideally I’d love to do this every month, but realistically I think I’m going on 6 months and really need to do some makeup clean up.
Fix Your Broken Makeup
We’ve all been there. We drop our precious, expensive makeup and watch in horror as it drops to the ground and crumbles into broken fragments of the beauty it once was. No need to cry and trudge back to Sephora to crack open your wallet again. Instead use this handy trick from Lauren Conrad for bringing that cherished makeup back to life.
Apply Your Eyeliner Like a Pro
Eyeliner is a tricky game that many of us are still practicing before we consider ourselves pros. Rest your elbow on a surface for a steadier hand while you apply your eyeliner. Up your game with this and 6 other eyeliner tips that you can find on the blog here.
Travel Light and Leave Your Expensive Products at Home
I’m always so scared of leaving behind my favourite lipstick or foundation at a hotel far far away. That’s why I was so happy when I found this Pinterest hack of using contact containers or other small containers (I use all of my tiny David’s Tea containers) to travel with small amounts of your favourite makeup.
Use Coconut Oil Like a Beauty Pro
Coconut oil is my go to makeup remover, and for good reason. Not only does it remove makeup better than other removers, it’s made my eyelashes grow longer and thicker too, win win! You can find the original blog post here, or save the pin to see the other great uses later.
Even Out Skin Tone and Soften Your Face
This face mask looks disgusting, but it seriously works. Mix up cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, and lemon juice for an amazing at home weekly face mask. I store mine in a sealed container in the fridge for up to a month.
