From mastering perfect waves to making the most out of your lipstick, discover the beauty tips that will change your life for good.
Beauty tips are a girls best friend, making the world of beauty so much easier to follow.
We have all been guilty of spending unnecessary time and money trying to make ourselves look and feel our very best.
So to make life easier, we have put together our favourite beauty tips that are both useful and oh-so simple that everyone can use them.
From hair and eyes to more general advice, here are the beauty tips every woman should know.
Use Clear Tape to get the Perfect Cat Eye
Cat eyes can be hard to get right, with one turning out perfectly and the other going horrendously wrong way too often.
Make life easier by using scotch tape to make a fool-proof line.
Angle the tape the way you would like the cat-eye to look and then simply draw on your liquid as you usually would above the tape.
When you peel the tape away you will be left with perfectly neat cat eyes.
Use an Eyelash Curler to get Fool-Proof Top Eyeliner
Give your eyelash curler a double purpose by also using it to easily dress your eyelid.
Simply draw eyeliner onto the top line of your lash curler and press down as usual to curl your lashes.
When you remove the curler, you will not only have curlier lashes but also instant top eyeliner without any effort.
Heat your Eyelash Curler with a Hair Dryer to make Curling Lashes Easier
Eyelash curlers already do a pretty great job at giving you curlier eyelashes, but heating them up makes them even more effective.
Using a hair dryer, simply blow hot air on your eyelash curler before letting it cool slightly and then using it as you usually would.
The heat causes the eyelashes to not only curl easier, but also stay curled for longer so you can have beautiful, fluttering eyelashes all day long.

Get Rid of Eye Bags with the Power of Tea Bags
Tiredness can cause dark circles or even bags to develop under your eyes.
Instead of spending lots of money on expensive creams, use cold tea bags to get rid of them.
Simply stew 2 teabags in hot water for a few minutes before squeezing the liquid out of them and allowing them to cool down. Then place them over your eyes for 5-10 minutes.
The caffeine in the teabags helps reduce fluid retention in the tissue around the eyes, helping to reduce any puffiness and sullenness whilst tightening the skin. This a simple and inexpensive way of bringing your eyes back to life.
Use Hairspray to Hold your Makeup in Place
Once you’ve finished your makeup, lightly spray your face with hairspray.
Just like it does for hair, the hairspray will hold your makeup in place for longer meaning you won’t have to make constant touch-ups throughout the night.
Dyeing your own Hair? Use Vaseline to Prevent Stains
When you dye your own hair, it doesn’t always go according to plan, leaving horrible stains on your forehead that you spend hours trying to scrub away or cover up until they fade.
To avoid such a disaster, simply apply Vaseline all around the outline of your face all the way down past your ears (yes those sideburns can cause problems too!) before you start dyeing.
Afterwards, wipe away the Vaseline and any dye that has drifted onto it will come away easily too.
Restore Dry Nail Varnish with Nail Varnish Remover
When your nail varnish becomes dry, sticky and clumpy, it is impossible to use and you may be tempted to throw it away.
However, this would be a huge mistake! Instead, simply add a drop of nail varnish remover to the varnish and then close and shake the bottle.
This will give the nail varnish a new lease of life and make it usable again.
Lipstick isn't just for the Lips
No time for a full face of makeup? Use your lipstick for multiple purposes to get a natural, rosy look.
Just lightly dab some lipstick onto your cheeks for blush, your eyelids for a glistening eye shadow as well as on your lips – this will give your appearance a quick cheery glow in no time and requires minimal effort.

Coconut Oil is the Answer to All your Prayers
Coconut oil has an amazing amount of beauty uses. Run out of makeup remover? Coconut Oil. Need some moisturizer? Coconut Oil. Trying to repair damaged hair? Coconut Oil. Want a new toothpaste? Coconut Oil.
Seriously, there isn’t much you can’t use this bad boy for. It is natural, effective and smells divine.
Use your Straightener to get Perfect Waves
Getting perfect waves needn’t be difficult.
Simply divide your hair into 2-3 sections and braid it. Then use a straightener to clamp down, making your way from the top of the braid to the bottom.
When you take the braids out you will have cute little beach-style waves that will last all day.
