With life being as hectic as it is these days, it can be difficult to maintain a strict beauty routine. Try out these simple yet unusual tips and tricks to complete your own beauty routine in a fast, fun way.

Use baby shampoo as a brush cleaner. Baby shampoo isn't just for babies! It doubles as a great brush cleaner which has been tried and tested by many beauty gurus.

Heat your eyelash curler. If your lashes grow straight down, and just can't seem to hold a curl try heating your eyelash curler using a hairdryer prior to curling your lashes.

Put your nail polish in the fridge. Keep your bottles in the fridge to ensure nail polish applies smoothly, and more even. Say bye-bye to air bubbles!

Spray bobby pins with dry shampoo. Sick and tired of bobby pins constantly falling off your hair? Spray them with some dry shampoo to help them stay in place longer. Hairspray should work just as well.


String necklaces through straws when packing. We've all been in that situation where we're desperate to put on our favorite necklace, but it's completely and utterly impossible to untangle. Try stringing your necklace through a straw before packing it.

Use lipstick as a blush. Ever forgotten to bring blush in your makeup bag? You can easily remedy this by swiping a neutral pink lipstick on your cheeks and blending it well with your fingers.

Use tape or a credit card to master the wingled liner. Winged liner is undoubtedly one of the most difficult beauty looks to master, though it can be made easier by placing either a credit card, or tape to map out that cat eye flick.

Apply concealer in a triangular shape. To successfully cover up any dark under eye circles, apply concealer in downward triangle shape underneath your eyes.

Use a toilet seat cover as an oil blotting sheet. This may sound strange at first, however toilet seat covers work just as well at removing oil from your face.


Keep makeup wipes by your bed. Ever come home from a night out, way too lazy to remove your makeup? Keep a pack of makeup wipes by your bed so you have no excuse to go to bed with a full face on.
