Sometimes beauty-life hacks can significant change their lives, as well as help save time, effort and money. In addition, often they work no worse than specialist. Now the dissemination of such tips has reached an unprecedented speed and network users do not cease to discover new ways to improve their appearance with the help of improvised means.
We are confident that the pioneers of these 11 beauty-life hacks deserve a separate award for creativity and courage.
Use conditioner first and then shampoo
Regardless of what products you use, most of us were taught to wash our hair the same way: shampoo (rinse, lather, rinse, repeat) then conditioner.
But, hair-care brands have started rolling out lines that ask us to do the complete opposite: condition before shampooing. “Conditioning before you shampoo is great for adding nourishment to fine hair without weighing it down,”. “It also promotes a longer lasting blowdry and primes the hair before cleansing, allowing shampoo to distribute easier and more evenly.”
Change the parting
Many of us are accustomed to certain hair wearing – the same parting, and do not change it every day. However, this is not very useful for hair, plus their volume is lost faster. We advise combing the hair on the other side, fixing it with varnish – so that there is no temptation to return the old hairstyle during the day. Subsequently, change the parting as often as possible, ideally – every day.
Use regular mascara with waterproof
If your problem number 1 when applying makeup is that the mascara printed over the eyelids, remember the main thing – choose mascara with moisture-resistant properties (do not confuse with waterproof!). It is ideal for daily makeup and is easily washed off with warm water. Yes, it’s difficult to get drama and volume with it, but you won’t worry all day how your eyelids look.
Do not change the temperature of the water when washing
There is a myth: hot water opens pores, and cold water closes them. In fact, the pores are not muscles; they cannot open and close. And even if you like skin contact with hot water, excessively high temperature of the water can deprive your skin of its protecting fats, which will lead to overdrying of the skin or excessive salivation.
Foundation with pink undertones
Most tones have a sandy or beige tint, but if you set a goal, you will find a foundation with a pinkish tint – it is it that allows you to achieve the freshest complexion. Of course, like any other shade, it needs to be selected according to skin color (it is better to test on the neck, and not on the wrist), but nevertheless, a barely noticeable pink pigment instantly makes the face more youthful.
Apply concealer with brush at the end of makeup
Another tip for using concealer is to apply it not after a layer of foundation, but as a final touch, when the makeup is generally ready. Sometimes it is necessary to mask not only small redness and dark circles under the eyes, but also shadows that crumble under the eyes, so it is better to do everything all at once. By the way, it is better to use a thin brush for concealer. If you do this with your fingertips, you will leave quite large and noticeable spots on the skin. A brush will provide a more accurate application.
Use life hack to quickly remove gel polish
Apply regular varnish to the center of the nail before applying the base. The adhesion of the gel polish to the base along the edges of the nail plate is enough for the coating to last long enough, but it can be easily removed by soaking it with gel polish remover.
Dry your hair with your hands, not comb
To keep your hair healthy and voluminous, do not comb it while blow drying. This will allow you to lose less hair (wet, they fall out much faster, especially if you start combing), and at the same time raise them at the roots. Raise the strands with your hands and blow dry your hair, creating a basal volume. Only after combining the moisture completely take a comb in your hand.
Make soft contouring with foundation
Contouring is, anyway, a trend for the camera. In life, the sculptor’s strips on the cheekbones often look like dirty spots, even if you have applied very little. One of the options is to replace it with blush, which will help not only to correct the oval of the face, but also to give the face a more fresh, healthy color. Or take a foundation a couple of shades darker and blend it under the cheekbones, on the forehead along the hairline and along the back of the nose.
Use two-sided application of mascara
Want to make your eyelashes look thicker, and mascara does not give the desired result? Try painting them below and above. This is not so much a beauty trick, but the right way to apply mascara, which not everyone knows about.
Lip darkening for more volume
If you want to visually enlarge the lips, instead of highlighting the “checkmark” above the upper lip in the usual way, darken the hole in the center of the upper lip. Just as you darken the area in the center under the bottom.
