Do you know anyone who enjoys spending an eternity, or a small fortune, at the hairdressers? Or buying beauty products every week or month to get glamourous? I don’t!
We all have busy lives and we all have off days when we don’t feel or look our best. When this happens, we all could do with some quick and easy ways to make life simpler without sacrificing our, style or beauty.
If this resonates with you, then I’ve got you! These brilliant beauty tips & tricks to save you tons of time and money are exactly what you need. They’ll help you to quickly and easily look and feel like a fortune, without the need to spend an eternity, or a fortune, on beauty maintenance.
1. Apply Vaseline, Then Spray Perfume
Vaseline has many uses. We all know that it’s great for chapped lips, dry skin & scalp. However, it’s also excellent for sealing in the scent of perfume. So, if you need the scent of your perfume to last, use Vaseline, then spray your alluring perfume. You’ll smell lovely longer
2. Minimal Makeup Magic
Sometimes we don’t have the time or the motivation to put on a full face of makeup. In times like these, grabbing a bold lipstick, or lip gloss, can brighten your overall look. They’ll also ensure that all eyes are on your luscious lips and not the rest of your makeup-free face. If you have an extra minute, apply some mascara also to make your eyes more distinct and look awake and vibrant. Presto! Just like magic, you’ll look like you just stepped off a catwalk with only two items of makeup. If it’s sunny, complete the magic trick, by adding some stylish sunglasses and you’re good to go!

3. Disguise Roots With Mascara
If you don’t have the time, the money, or you’re feeling too lazy to get a retouch of your roots, it’s mascara to the rescue! To avoid making a bad situation worst, please make sure that the mascara’s the same colour as the rest of your hair.
4. Coffee Filter Blotting
Regularly buying oil blotters to remove that shine can become expensive over time. To save some money, grab a coffee filter to blot away those oils in no time.
5. Use Coconut Oil For Healthy Hair
Coconut oil has many uses. You can use it for cooking and frying and to moisturise dry skin. But my favourite use of this amazing oil is to revitalise dry, brittle hair. When used as a deep conditioner, coconut oil is known to penetrate faster and deeper than other conditioners. So if you’re in a rush, it’s the perfect time saving natural, deep conditioning oil treatment. And most likely much less expensive than getting it done at the hairdressers.
6. Hairspray Hair pins For Longer Lasting Hairstyles
Using hairspray on your hairpins helps the hair pins keep your hair intact longer. You can maintain that awesome hairstyle much longer without the fear of sweat, rain, or sudden movements ruining it
7. Use Honey For Sweet Skincare
No matter how chic and on trend your outfit looks, you can never slay with your style if your face is full of bumps and pimples. Even if your face is otherwise flawless with only one blemish, your appearance can be ruined and your confidence can be crushed. To avoid this disaster, apply some fresh lemon juice mixed with a bit of honey to the affected area. This should reduce the swelling and kill the bacteria quickly, causing your bump or pimple to soon shrink or fade away.
8. Saline Solution For Longer Lasting Mascara
Saline solution can make you mascara last longer. So if you need mascara urgently but don’t have the time or funds to get a new one right away, try adding a few drops of saline for longer lasting mascara.
9. Nail Polish/Varnish Removal
It’s easy to remove excess nail polish/varnish from around the edges of your fingernails. If you do not have the time nor money to get your nails done at the nail shop, no need to panic because of the excess polish around your finger nails. This is easy to remove. Simply grab a clean cotton bud/Q tip that you’d clean your ears with. Dip the cotton in nail polish remover. Wipe the excess polish off with the cotton and you’re done.
10. Microwave Gel Eyeliner
If your gel eyeliner is getting thin and needs a quick pick-me-up, then stick it in your microwave for a few seconds (not minutes) and presto! You’re good to go!
