10 Beauty Tricks to Ease Your Morning Routine!

Just a few tricks to make your beauty routine easier!

1.) Place your eyelash curler under your blow dryer for 30 seconds before using.  This will help enhance the curl you get from it making your lashes more eye catching.

2.)  Saturate cotton swabs in your favorite perfume and carry them in a plastic bag in your purse for when you want to freshen up.

3.) Spray a little hairspray on a toothbrush and comb over any fly-aways you have.

4.)  Spray bobby pins with hairspray before using to give extra hold.

5.)  Mix old sparkly eye shadows with clear nail polish to create fun new shades.

6.) Once your mascara starts to get clumpy put it in a glass of hot water for 30 seconds and it will help to warm the formula so it applies like new.

7.)  Use an old mascara wand to apply baby powder to your lashes before mascara.  This will help to lengthen and fill your lashes, making them look extra full.

8.) Make your own dry shampoo by combining corn starch, water and rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle.  Alternatively, baby powder gets the job done as well.

9.)  Mix cinnamon and Vaseline together to create your own lip plumper.  You can also use colored balm to create a colorful lip plumper.

10.)  Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol to broken foundation/blush to reset it to solid form  Leave it overnight and in the morning voila it's like a brand new product!

How To: Winged Eyeliner

One of the more popular makeup looks currently is winged eyeliner.  You can create a gorgeous eye look without knowing the first thing about makeup as long as you know your eyeliner.  It's a really easy technique that with a little bit of practice and time you'll be able to do with your eyes closed.  I used to be horrible at it, always making the liner way too thick and making my eye look super tiny, but over time I got better.  So, check out my tips below to see what tricks I use to make applying winged liner easier and let me know what you think!  What are your tricks?
