Blogoversary Beauty Hacks!

Hey guys! Today, I thought it would be fun to list some really cool beauty/skincare/haircare hacks! I'll put in some proper graphics later today, since I'm in a time rush right now, so check back later to see them!

1. Use a toothbrush to remove dead skin from your lips! Brush them gently, in a circular motion.

2. Wash your pillowcases often, or invest in a silk pillowcase
 to help stop acne!   

3.  Coconut Oil makes a fantastic lotion and eye-makeup remover! (I think I need to do a post on the miracles of coconut oil.)

4. (I think this is my favorite!) Use rubbing alcohol to fix broken powders, eyeshadows, and blushes!    Cover the powder (in the compact) with plastic wrap, and mash it up with the back of a makeup brush or paintbrush. Take it off, add a few drops of rubbing alcohol, smooth it over, and let it dry! Check out the tutorial at the Beauty Department.

5. For a DIY Gel Liner, hold a regular eyeliner pencil under a lighter for a second. Let it cool down for 15, and now you'll get an intense smudge!

6. Apply concealer in a triangle shape to conceal under eye circles. You can also use cucumber to
calm down puffiness!

7. You can use a spoon as a guideline for winged eyeliner.

8. Use a rubber band or bandaid for a perfect French tip!

9. Use shimmery eyeshadow in the corner of your eyes to make them look more awake and bigger.

10. Now, the most important..... Apply perfume at your pressure points: neck, behind ears, wrists, behind knees, and elbows.  

That's all for now, but make sure to check out this list from Buzzfeed, which is pretty cool!
