Hello Loves 💞!Today I will be sharing some of my favorite beauty and fashion hacks 🕵! Every beauty maven and fashionista has her own tips and tricks, little shortcuts that make life a tad easier and for a whole lot cheaper 🤑now who doesn’t love that! Some of you might have already tried and/or heard of some of these 😱! For others this might be an introduction, in any case sit back and enjoy as I take you through the hack list of a shopaholic 💫
✨Dry Shampoo hack ✨,
✨ The reason this hack is first is because I hate washing my hair😡. It takes too long and then I have to condition it, wait for it to dry and turn into a frizzy, fluffy ball then straighten it…you get the idea 😒.I try to extend time between washings which is not always easy cause my roots get oily pretty quick.
✨ Now commercial dry shampoos work fine ( some of them). But here’s the problem, they are pricey💸, they run out too fast 👎🏼and they are chock full of chemicals. Here’s where the hack comes in, you can make dry shampoo in your own kitchen for a fraction of the price! All you need is : arrowroot powder about 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons of Dutch cocoa powder + 1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder. (If you have lighter hair omit the cocoa powder, I have super dark hair so I feel it blends in better with the cocoa😇).
✨Mix together keep in an airtight container and use like you would regular dry shampoo! Plus you get the added benefit of smelling like chocolate and cinnamon yumm!.
✨Tinted Moisturizer hack, ✨Don’t feel like full coverage, but don’t want to invest in a tinted moisturizer or CC cream? No problem just mix a pump or two of your foundation (liquid💧) with your moisturizer and voila!✨ your own tinted moisturizer/CC cream!
✨Skimpy eyelashes hack,
✨I have tried this countless times! I don’t have skimpy eyelashes nor do I have lush lashes I fall squarely in between 😒. At times however when I am too rough removing my eyemakeup or just rub the crap out of my eyes my lashes do fall out at random 😱. Castor oil to the rescue ! Just use a cotton swab to apply castor oil to your lashes just before bedtime and you will see thicker, longer lashes guaranteed !✨
✨Crossback bra hack,
✨Wearing a halter dress or tank tops and don’t own a Crossback bra? No biggie, take a medium sized paper clip and thread it through the bra straps at the back to make a temporary cross back bra and hide those pesky bra straps out of sight. You can buy the real bra clips later here.
✨Face scrub hack, ✨Run out of exfoliator? Rummage through your pantry. Baking soda is an ingredient in most everybody’s kitchen. Mix two tablespoons baking soda with 1 tablespoon lemon juice and apply to your face. Rub gently over your face as you would with a convention scrub and wash off. Smooth, glowing skin yes indeed ✨!
✨Eyeshadow hack, ✨ Eye primer and concealer not making those shadows bright enough? Apply a white liner pencil on your lid after your primer and brush on your shadow, the white will make the colors pop!✨ This works really well on pastel or lighter shades that don’t show up too well especially if you have a darker skin tone.
✨Never fear, all you need is an anti perspirant and you’re good to go. Just make sure you use a separate one for your feet 😷. Roll on the anti perspirant on the soles of your feet let dry for a few minutes and you are good too go!👣
