5 Game Changing Beauty Hacks

fashionlush, beauty hacks, beauty tricks & tips

I am definitely no makeup expert or skincare guru- but over the years, I have learned a few things from being in this industry… but also from being kinda lazy when it comes to all that sorta stuff.

I am not the girl spending hours a day doing my hair or make-up (who has time for all that?!), so I live for a good beauty hack to make getting ready for the day or night more timely & efficient. Ya feel me?

SO- today i am sharing with you guys my top 5 game changing beauty hacks, but I kinda cheated cause I feel like there are way more than 5 tips in this post. Rebel rebel.

Enjoy these little tricks of mine & if you guys have any beauty hacks I need to know about- SPILL. x

1. Lips: before putting on lipstick I always brush my lips with a charcoal infused toothbrush to exfoliate off dead skin & then follow with my Glossier Balm Dotcom mixed w/ a few drops of peppermint essential oil. The peppermint gives a quick, all natural, plump!

2. Eyes: I am recovering from eyelash extensions, so to make my (currently) very short lashes appear longer, I have a very specific mascara routine. First, I brush my lashes with a lash brush, then I heat up the eyelash curler with my blow dryer to give them extra curl, next I apply primer + mascara (this mascara is my favorite). Added beauty hack: line the top part of your eyelash curler with eyeliner before using it and it will literally apply the liner for you!!

3. Skin: before putting on on makeup I always always always give myself a quick ice facial. It makes my skin look like I just got botox (no lines, cause it’s actually frozen), shrinks up my pores, & makes makeup go on FLAWLESSLY. Post makeup- I always spritz rosewater on my face for added dew & to set my makeup look. This rosewater spritz is my favorite of the moment cause it infuses coconut oil, vitamin e oil, & geranium. Very refreshing & luxurious.

4. Perfume: I don’t know if it’s just me- but I have always felt like my perfume doesn’t last long. I recently learned if you put Aquaphor on your perfume points (wrists, neck, whatever) before you spray, the scent will last allllll day  long. Try it- works like a charm. Also, spray perfume on your hairbrush to keep your hair smelling good for days on end.

5. Hair: sleep on a silk pillowcase to prevent breakage in the night & GET A SHOWER FILTER. The hard water of your shower is killing your hair & a shower filter fixes that problem in seconds.

    I lovvve these tips. I give myself an ice facial every single morning too and it seriously is the best thing I’ve ever discovered. It works wonders on how my skin looks under my makeup. I’ve never heard of the Aquaphor thing before though… So I’m going to try that one out. Fingers crossed it works for me too! I stay feeling like all of my perfume is going to waste. Thanks for sharing!
