We. Don't. Have. Time. Period. Between our demanding career, whirlwind of social life, and family commitments, is that really a surprise?
However, that is no reason to go slack on your beauty game, dear ladies! Before you step out of that door, with next to no eye-makeup, wait and read. Here are some incredible, easy-peasy beauty hacks for all the busy gals out there!
From correcting the smudged lipstick, to freshening your greasy hair, and of course, perfecting that cat-winged eyeliner, we have covered every single beauty woe we face on day-to-day basis.
Before we get started with the beauty tricks for busy girls, there are a few points you need to keep in mind.
Never commit the mistake of stepping out without applying a sunscreen, at least an hour before. Quit touching your face. Never use expired beauty products. Go easy on the makeup and give your skin some breathing space.
Love thy self. And for that added TLC, here are some beauty hacks that work like a charm. Bonus Point - it won't cost you a penny.
Dry Nail Paint In No Time
Fresh nail paint and no time to dry? Here is a quick hack. Simply, dip your painted nails in ice water. Hold it for a few seconds and Voilà, your nail paint is dry. No smudge, no pain, no wait!
Freshen Your Hair With Perfume
Three days without shampooing? Try this. Spritz your favourite perfume onto your hair brush, and comb it through your hair to distribute it evenly. Not only will it freshen up your hair, but also leave it smelling incredible!
Master Perfect Winged Eyeliner With ID Card
Yes, it is that easy. Hold the card on the corner of your eye, parallel to your eyebrows and swoop the liner for that perfect wing. Don't worry about the smudge. Your eyeliner will be clean, crisp and sharp, like a pro.
Make Lipstick Last All Day
Apply your regular lipstick, press a tissue paper over your lips lightly and dust it with a face powder. Wait for a few seconds, the powder will seep into the pores, then turn your lipstick into matte and make it last all day long.
Correct Wrong Foundation
Bought a foundation that is a tone too dark for your skin? No problem. Simply add a few drops of your regular moisturiser to lighten the tone.
Cracked Heels, Good Bye!
Mix a pinch of Vicks VapoRub with an equal amount of petroleum jelly, and rub it on the affected area. Put an a comfy pair of socks and by morning, your heels will be soft and smooth. Do this every day until it is fully healed.
Stinky Underarms, No More
What to do if you have stinky armpits and don't want to use chemical-based deodorants. Simple. You dust the area lightly with baking soda. Baking soda neutralises the acids present in the sweat.
If your mascara has left your eyelashes clumpy, all you need is an old tooth brush. Gently swipe the brush onto your lashes, it will take the clump right off.
If you want thick and sharp lashes, before applying the eye makeup, try this easy beauty hack. Dust your lashes with baby powder sparingly. It will create the impression of fuller and extended lashes.
Steer Clear From Dark Circles
Take two used green tea bags and pop it into the freezer for a few minutes. Place it over your eyes and let it sit until the coldness seeps out. The chock-full of antioxidants present will lighten dark circles, remove puffiness and make your eyes pop. Try this under-eye dark circle-removing remedy every day to see amazing results!
