We have drafted some of the most effective and easy-to-use beauty hacks for a make-up look that wows.
Here are some of the cleverest tricks and must-know tips to help you look flawless in a flash.


Don’t apply bronzer all over. Sweep it over the side of the face in a shape of a ‘3’ over your forehead, cheekbones, and jawline to add contour and warmth to the skin for a naturally accentuated look.


When adding mascara, place the card directly behind your upper lashes or underneath your lower lashes. The card acts as a shield, letting you work the wand all the way to the base of your lashes without leaving a smudge. To create a cat eye, place the card at the corner of your outer lower lash line toward your temple, creating a slight angle, and use it as a guide when drawing your winged tip. Extend the eyeliner to the inner corners of your eyes along the upper lash line, and voila!

Use Eye Shadow To Help Fine Hair Appear Thicker

Using an eye shadow brush, apply a shade of eye shadow closest to your hair colour on to your scalp. This will instantly give the illusion of depth, making the hair appear fuller.

Use Lipstick As Cream Blush

Next time you run out of blusher, don’t stress – just use your lipstick! Simply swipe a clean finger over the top of your lipstick and dab the product along the upper half of the apples of your cheeks, and blend as you work your way across the cheekbone.

Dry Nail Polish Instantly with Ice Water

It may not be the most comfortable way to dry nail polish, but it’s definitely an effective at-home method. Fill a bowl with water and ice cubes. As soon as you have painted your nails, dip them in the ice water for one to two minutes.

Plump Up Your Eyelashes With Baby Powder

Boost your mascara’s ability to add volume by dusting some baby powder on your lashes between the first and second coats of mascara. The powder adds grip, so it will stick to your lashes in between each coat of mascara, making your lashes appear more plumped.

Use Vaseline To Make Your Perfume Last

Make your fragrance last longer but giving it something to hold onto, like Vaseline. Rub a small amount into the spots you would normally apply your perfume and then spritz your favourite fragrance over it. Thanks to the occlusive nature of the Vaseline the fragrance wont evaporate as quickly.

Apply Your Under-Eye Concealer In A Triangle Shape

This is the most flattering way to apply concealer – as well as concealing dark circles it also creates the illusion that the face is lifted, giving it a more youthful appearance. To start, the base of the triangle should be directly underneath your lower lash line, with the tip pointing down and extending to the cheek. Blend accordingly.
