I LOVE finding out about beauty hacks! Any kind of hack for that matter! I know everyone has a hack or two to share that undeniably works and gives you huge party props when mentioned at a gathering. Today, I am about to drop some more fun HACK bombs on you! I hope you find these super helpful.

Removing Smeared Makeup From Clothing

Ok, we have all been here before...we get dressed in a bit of a hurry and accidentally get makeup on our collars. What to do?! Hack #1: Shaving Cream to the rescue. Just use a little bit of cream and a warm washcloth to work out the stain and watch it disappear. Your shirt will smell great and it will look like nothing ever happened. Shaving cream isn't just for shaving anymore.

Hiding a Pimple

You wake up and have horrible bloodshot eyes from allergies or just not sleeping well. But wait, there's more...you wake up to find a pimple staring right at you! What to do?! Hack #2: Grab some Visine, lubricate your eyes, and then soak a cotton ball in the solution and apply it to the pimple for a few minutes. The redness will subside for a few hours and you can then apply concealer as you would normally. No one will be the wiser!

Fixing a Mascara Mess

Are you always getting mascara on your eyelids? And do you have business cards? Wait, how do these two relate? Hack #3: Use your business card as a shield when applying mascara! Just place it on top of your eyelid down to your lashes and then apply your mascara. No messy lids! You will be left with messy cards though, so make sure you toss those so that they aren't accidentally handed to a prospective client!

Filling In Brows

Do you need your brows to have a "filled in" look, but are short on time? If you have a bar of soap and a spoolie brush lying around, you are in luck! Hack #4: Take a wet spoolie brush, dip it into warm water, rub it onto a bar of soap and then brush your brows up for a fuller effect! How in the world did anyone marry these two products together and then think to apply it to their brows?
This spoolie brush can help you pull off one of our beauty hacks on the fly!

Plumping Up Your Lips

Sometimes you would just like your lips to look fuller. If you have a white or flesh colored eye pencil lying around, you can make this wish come true! Hack #5: Outline your lips with the pencil, and by "outline" I mean go around your lip lines, not on the actual lips themselves. Blend the line out with a sponge and apply your lipstick! A fuller pout awaits!

Applying Lipstick

An angle brush can be used for eyebrows, eyeliner and now lips! Hack #6: Use an angle brush to apply your lipstick, especially bright and intense colors! That angle will really help with the curvature of your cupids bow. Now, HACK it up! Do you guys have any fun and awesome beauty hacks to share? We would LOVE to learn about them!
