10 Beauty Hacks Every Girl Should Know

In the vast world of the Internet, good beauty is hard to find, especially with so many tips and tricks to sift through. However, here is more beauty advice. But research revealed 10 collective beauty hacks that come up in multiple posts or videos. Basically, the hard work is done for you. Now let's get started. 

Hack #1: Have a compact of blush/powder/eyeshadow/bronzer that has completely shattered? Don't throw it out! Fix it. All you'll need is some rubbing alcohol and a spoon. Saturate the shattered powder with the rubbing alcohol and smooth it out with the end of the spoon. Clean up the edges with a tissue and let it sit overnight. You should wake up to a fully functional compact that looks (almost) as good as new. 

Hack #2: Have an unbearable bout of dry skin? There is a perfect and oh so simple face mask for you. All you have to do is mix equal parts aloe vera gel and honey. Put the aloe in your hand first, then just squirt the honey right on top. Mix them together in your hands and just slather it on. It will tingle a bit from the aloe, but leave it on for 10-15 minutes and you should notice a more hydrated face!

Hack #3: Are your lips feeling dry and chapped lately? You can fix this while brushing your teeth! After you've taken care of those pearly whites, brush your lips in circular motions to slough off all the dry skin on your lips. This also makes your lips plumper! After you've gotten all the dry skin off, slather those luscious lips with some good ol' vaseline. 

Hack #4: Is your hair a tangled mess every time you get out of the shower? Change your routine while you're still IN the shower. Take a wide tooth comb in with you, and comb through your hair while your conditioner is still in it. But the trick is to comb from the bottom to the top. This will prevent new tangles from forming (which happens if you were to start combing from the top). 

Hack #5: Now this one may seem a little "risquè" for some of you, but it is a beauty hack some of you may need. When shaving "down there" it is likely most of you suffer from razor burn or some red bumps. This can be an easy fix if you are willing to sacrifice being 100% hair free. You just have to shave WITH the grain of the hair instead of against. Yes, there will be a small amount of hair left behind, but you should notice your skin will be much happier. 

Hack #6: Every girl loves their eyeliner, but what happens if you're getting ready for a night out and you either can't find your eyeliner, or it's all gone? All you need is an angled brush and your favorite dark eyeshadow. Wet the angled brush first--this makes the color of the eyeshadow more opaque--and then dip it in the eyeshadow. You can now use this as your eyeliner! It does tend to look more natural and not as intense as a normal eyeliner, but you can build the color to your preference. 

Hack #7: Whether it is hormonal acne, stress acne, or any other type of acne, every girl knows the pain of that enormous blemish right under the skin. Now, you may be tempted to pick and squeeze at this monstrosity, but don't. This can lead to an acne scar, or an unsightly scab that is impossible to cover up. Just take a hot washcloth (as hot as your skin can bear) and press it onto the blemish until the washcloth cools. This should help both bring the infection to the surface, and reduce swelling. 

Hack #8: Are your locks looking a little dull and frazzled? Liven them up with a simple hair mask. Virgin coconut oil is all you need. Take at least a tablespoon and distribute it evenly throughout your hair from the ears down. Putting this in your roots may make them look more oily than shiny in the morning. For the most beneficial treatment, leave it in overnight and wash it out in the morning. Your hair should look revived and well moisturized. 

Hack #9: Want to clean your makeup brushes, but don't want to break the bank? Don't waste your money on expensive brush cleaners, just take a trip into the baby beauty aisle. Johnson & Johnson's baby shampoo is gentle enough for your brushes and cleans like a dream!

Hack #10: All ladies have that one special lip gloss that is perfect for their lips. However, it is impossible to use the last of the product because it gets stuck on the sides. In order to get to the last part of the product, fill your sink with warm water that's high enough to cover the lip gloss. Place the lip gloss in your sink and let sit. The remaining lip gloss on the sides should slide down the tube to the bottom, allowing you to use the rest! 

Hopefully these 10 hacks help you all out on all of your future beauty endeavors!
