Instagram stopped being a place to upload selfies and holiday snaps long ago. You can now find all kinds of useful information and ideas there.
Here are 18 tips for looking beautiful every day that Enlighten found. You’ll wonder how you ever survived without them!
Use a moleskin patch to fix your underwire bra
Curl your hair using only a hair band
Simply tie up your hair in a hair band for a few hours or overnight.
Make small eyes look bigger and large eyes smaller
Apply white eyeliner on the waterline of your lower lids to make them look larger. Use dark eyeliner to make your eyes look smaller.
Make your mascara appear brighter
Add a little white eyeliner to make your mascara really shine.
Put old eye shadow to good use
If you have a little eye shadow left over, you can mix it with a small amount of Vaseline to create a new lipstick.
Make your hair look thicker
Apply a little eye shadow along your hairline that is similar to your hair color.
Clean your brushes without any hassle
Simply mix together a little olive or mineral oil with some dish soap at a ratio of 1:1. After washing, rinse thoroughly with water.
Use a thin pantyliner to block sweat stains
Tie your hair without a hair tie
Braid your hair without untangling the ends, as shown in the video.
Make your lower lashes look more beautiful
If you’re always left wishing your lower lashes looked fuller, why not try this simple trick?
Get the perfect lashes
Use an ordinary spoon when applying mascara to your lower lashes. The end result will be much neater and more beautiful!
The best body scrub in the world
Ground coffee is an excellent body scrub. It’s energizing, completely natural, and (provided you’ve drunk your coffee) also completely free!
How to pick the right foundation
The skin on your wrist differs in color from the skin on your face. It’s therefore better to test foundation on your neck.
Give new life to your mascara
If your mascara is feeling dry, add a drop or two of your favorite oil to bring it back to life and stretch it out until you’re ready to pick up more. Of course, if it has already passed its sell-by date, just buy a new one.
Make your lipstick last longer
Apply your lipstick, then place a tissue on your lips, and put powder on top of the tissue. This will help keep the color vibrant for a lot longer.
Make a simple case for your brushes
It takes just five minutes and costs virtually nothing.
Create a new nail polish
Just mix some eye shadow with clear nail polish, and you’ve got yourself a whole new color.
Fix a broken palette
Grind it up, then add a drop of spirit, and mix. Now press it with something hard. Just like new!
