Heading back to school? Arm yourself with these super easy beauty tips and tricks that actually work!
#1 Beachy Waves With Overnight Braids
Want beachy waves but have no idea how to create them? Go to bed with your hair plaited into braids – the smaller the braid, the tighter the curl. Before heading out the next day, run a straightener over each plait before shaking ’em loose. #iwokeuplikethis
#2 Remove Nail Polish With Nail Polish
Did you know that you can remove existing nail polish with more polish? Simply layer on a fresh coat, wait a few seconds and wipe it off with a cotton pad. Repeat till there’s no residue left.
#3 Tightline To Brighten Up Eyes
Instead of labouring over creating the perfect cat eye, brighten up your peepers in an instant by lining your waterline with a water- and smudge-proof pencil eyeliner. Follow up with mascara to open up tired eyes even further.
#4 Doubling Clear Lipgloss As Highlighter

Swap highlighter with a clear lipgloss for a subtle, (and more affordable) dewy glow. Pat it on, set with clear powder and you’re good to go.
#5 Save Time Spent On Makeup Routine
Save the easier parts of your makeup routine for when you’re commuting – lipstick, blush or even mascara can be discretely applied. Have a pack of wet wipes/tissues handy, just in case.
#6 Hand Sanitiser As Emergency Deodorant
Sweating up a storm with no deodorant in sight? Apply a squirt of antibacterial hand sanitiser onto your armpits – it’ll neutralise any funky odour thanks to the rubbing alcohol.
#7 DIY Tinted Moisturiser
Running out of foundation? Create a high-coverage tinted moisturiser by mixing the foundation with a small amount of lightweight moisturiser.
#8 Emergency Makeup Remover
If you don’t have makeup remover handy, clean up smudged makeup with moisturiser or vaseline with a cotton swab.
#9 Using Blush To Contour
Pull double-duty on your blusher and warm up your complexion by using it as a contour. Peach/nude shades work well. Work it onto your brow bones, temples and sides of your mug and buff well till it blends into your complexion.
#10 Run Through Cold Water For Shiny Hair
Rinse your hair with cold water before leaving the shower. The cold temp will help to close hair follicles, leaving your mane shiny and smooth.
