Pinterest isn’t just a platform for cozy home decor, dreamy wedding ideas, DIY projects or fashion inspiration, there is a huge community of beauty guru posting their tutorial, step-by-step instructions (with photos) on some of the most gorgeous makeup looks. While browsing a holiday makeup looks, we came across some super useful beauty hacks that we can all use in our
#1 DIY eyelash growth serum can be costly especially if it is something you use twice a day. Not to mention, a lot of times, we don’t know what kind of chemical or products is in it. We found this awesome recipe for eyelash growth serum on Pinterest and surprisingly they are typical things you can find either at home or at a local store.
The ingredients you will need is half a teaspoon of vitamin E, half a teaspoon of argan oil, half a tablespoon of almond oil, and one tablespoon of castor oil. If you have an empty sample size clear mascara tube clean it out thoroughly with a qtip. And mix the ingredients in; use a mini funnel or a syringe to keep it less messy. Use the mascara brush it comes with to apply. Use twice a day.
Also, once you get that castor oil, there are endless of things you can use it on. A few includes, softer lips, healthy cuticles, wrinkles, read more about it via this post - https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/344173596520668778/
#2 DIY Coffee Face Mask can help increase your blood circulation, which will give you a healthy glow! Coffee may do the magic in waking you up internally, but surprisingly it can be just as effective with refreshing your face on the outside too. Coffee has an anti-oxidants that function against skin damage and is great with getting rid of eyebags and puffiness.
The ingredient is simple, all you need is one tablespoon of grinded coffee powder and one tablespoon of honey. Mix both ingredient well in a bowl, and spread on to your face. Massage in circular motion and then leave on for twenty minutes. Wash off. You can do this once every 3-4 days or alternate between different masks.
Speaking of masks, another thing we learned on Pinterest is putting different mask on your face for combination skin.
#3 Did you know a hair spray can go a long way in protecting your hair? Instead of spending $40 on a bottle of hair oil, there are natural ingredients found at home that can do the same thing. Try mixing these in a bottle and giving it a spray - https://www.pinterest.ca/pin/311944711670204954/
water + spf 25 + rosemary = protection
water + aloe + argan oil + glycerin = defrizz
water + sea salt + coconut oil = texture
#4 A short and simple hack, but a super useful one - ever have mascara dried up and clumped? Run it under hot water for a minute, turning the bottle every 20 seconds to get the bottle going again. The longer you run it under, the more effective it may get.
#5 Exfoliating your chapped lips does not always have to be scrubs, try picking up a disposable mascara wand at your local beauty store (they are usually free!). Exfoliate by rubbing the wand left to right a few times on your lips to get rid of the dead skin. Do it for both your top and bottom lips.
#6 Ever come out of the shower and realized you forgot to shave? Don’t try splashing some water because it will sting, give baby oil a try instead! It will leave your leg soft and smooth without jumping into the shower! Alternatively, if you are in the shower and realize you don’t have shaving cream, conditioner can do the trick as well!
