By  |  0 Comments



We all have a set of beauty tricks up our sleeves- some we gather from magazines and newspapers, some that are passed down from our mothers and grandmothers. But as girls, we are always on the lookout for new and interesting beauty tips that we can incorporate in our daily life.

Being so busy in our personal and professional life, we all long for easy and quick beauty hacks that prove to be real time savers. A few simple beauty hacks and tricks can make life so much simpler and better.

If you are looking for such easy beauty tricks and tips, then you are in luck. Listed below are twenty beauty hacks that can really be useful in your daily life, especially while grooming or dressing up in a hurry.

  • Going on a date but unable to hide those hideous enlarged pores? Rub some ice cubes on your face before doing your makeup to make your pores appear less noticeable.


  • Suffering from dry chapped lips in the winter? All you require is adequate exfoliation. Brush off the dead skin cells from your lips daily with a toothbrush for soft and pink lips. Remember to be gentle with the brush.
  • Is removing water-proof eye make up always a mess? Instead of using a regular cleanser, pour some baby oil on a cotton wool and rub on your eyes gently. The make up would come off instantly.
  • Don’t have blush in your purse but suddenly got plans for a party? Use your lipstick as a cream blush in times of emergency. It gives the same finish as a blush.
  • To avoid the clumping of your mascara, use an old toothbrush to brush your eyelashes after applying your mascara.
  • A common mistake we all do is buying a lighter shade of foundation than our skin tone. To avoid wasting an entire bottle of foundation, try mixing a pinch of bronzer with your foundation, every time you apply it. A bronzer would help you achieve your correct shade.
  • If you don’t own an iron, use your hair dryer as an iron to remove wrinkles from clothes. Its simple, take the hot dryer and hold it close to your crushed or wrinkled outfit. Continue until all the wrinkles are smoothed out.


  • To get rid of dandruff, crush an aspirin pill into your shampoo and apply on hair. Rub on the scalp gently and wash off for dandruff-free hair.
  • Don’t you dread the moment when your mascara bleeds or somehow ends up on your lids? To prevent that from happening, take an ear bud and dip it in some makeup remover. Now use the ear bud to gently wipe away the mascara streaks from your face, without ruining your make up.
  • To get rid of a zit overnight, dab some toothpaste on the pimple before going to sleep. The next morning, you will notice that the zit is much smaller and the redness is gone.
  • It really is a bother when you can do nothing but sit patiently for your nail polish to dry. But there is a quick fix to this problem. After applying the nail polish, dip your fingers in ice cold water for a few seconds. The nail polish will dry immediately.
  • To make your nails stronger and healthier, apply almond oil on your nails before going to bed. This will make your nails stronger and they will not break easily.
  • With our hectic schedules and busy lives, it is not possible to wash our hair everyday. Unwashed hair ends up looking limp and flat. In such situations, take some talcum powder in your hands and rub it through your hair. Now brush your hair normally and you will find that your hair looks much fuller and voluminous.
  • A common problem faced by all of us is when our mascara dries up and we end up throwing it in the trash. To let the product not go to waste, put the mascara in a cup of hot water and you will find that the mascara has liquefied. But to avoid an eye infection, remember that this tip is just for a one time use.
  • Eye pencils or kohls don’t have the same intensity as gel liners. Well now you can have the depth of a gel liner from a pencil itself. Hold the tip of the pencil for one second on top of a flame and immediately remove it. Let it dry for a minute and then start applying for a darker colour.
  • To hide a pimple or acne, apply a darker shade of concealer than your skin. Apply foundation above it to provide better coverage.
  • Some of us suffer from tired, puffy eyes thanks to our busy schedules and long work hours. To get rid of tired eyes instantly, take two green tea bags(ones that you have used and cooled off in a refrigerator), place them on your eyes and keep for 20 minutes. This will brighten your eyes instantly and prepare you for a night out.


  • If you are suffering from stained and yellow teeth, add a few drops of lemon juice to a tablespoon of baking soda and brush your teeth with this mixture. You will notice whiter teeth in just two weeks.
  • Now you can bid goodbye to cracked feet by applying clarified butter on the area. You will notice smoother feet with just one application.
  • To restore dry nail polish to its original form, pour some nail polish remover in the bottle and shake well. Voila! Your nail polish is as good as new.
