5 Weird Beauty Hacks That Actually Work

Posted on: February 15th, 2017

Are you looking for ways to cheat the beauty system and hack your way through your routine? Check out these 5 weird hacks that totally work!

1. Craft Glue Manicure

Tired of getting polish all over your fingers? Don’t fret! You don’t have to splurge on salon-quality, peel off paint. Paint craft glue around your cuticles to prevent mistakes. Once it’s dry, you can just peel them off!

2. Loosen Up Your Mascara

If you’ve found yourself in a situation where your mascara is a bit drier than you like, heat up some water in a mug. Let your mascara tube soak for a minute. This will help the product loosen up and allow for easier application.

3. Matte Your Lipstick

Is your favorite lipstick glossy? Are you looking for a more mattified look? Use a 1 ply facial tissue, place it over your closed lips, and use a fluffy brush to add setting powder over the top. This will change your glossed lips into matte lips!

Alternatively, you can tap your setting powder right onto your lips.

4. Curl Your Lashes Faster

Everyone loves fuller, curlier lashes. If you’re looking to curl yours faster with a longer hold, try heating up your lash curler with a blowdryer first. CAUTION: Wait a moment for it to cool down. You don’t want to burn your eyes!



5. Dry Your Nails Quicker

A smudged mani is not one to be had. To dry your polish faster, paint a few thin coats on, and then dunk your hands into a bowl of ice water. The cold can help the lacquer harden.
