From hair to makeup, there are always going to be shortcuts that will help you to save time and get that magazine model look, without spending hours or a small fortune in doing so. We have collected a list of 40 beauty hacks that are easy, inexpensive and best of all, very effective. Use one or use them all to get the look that you want in just a few minutes each day.
Beauty is not something that comes natural to every woman. Some have to spend time priming and polishing in order to get the perfect look that they want. While every woman is beautiful in her own right, it is no secret that there are some who look like they spend much more time with their beauty routine than others.
However, this does not mean that every beautiful woman in the world spends hours getting ready every morning. There are hacks or short cuts that you can use to help you to look like you spend hours in the bathroom, while in reality you may only have to spend a few minutes.
Make Your Own Instant Bronzer
Even if it’s winter or you rarely get out in the sunlight, you can look like you have just stepped off the beach. Just mix together 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of cocoa, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg and 2 teaspoons of cornstarch. This makes a great bronzing powder that will give you that sun kissed look without actually having to spend any time in the sun.

Easy Gingham Check Nails
Just paint your chosen nail polish color onto scotch tape, cut carefully and use the strips to create a beautiful gingham design on your nails. You can do this in many different colors to match virtually any look. Trip the tape carefully when you have it in place and then add a top coat to keep it there.

Get Makeup Off Shirt Collars Easily
Sometimes when you are in a rush to get ready, you may accidentally get makeup on your shirt collar. Foundation can be particularly difficult to remove. Just add a bit of shaving cream and wipe that makeup away with a damp cloth. The shaving cream works perfectly, won’t harm your clothing and best of all, you won’t have to take the time to change before you leave.
Keep Under Eye Concealer from Creasing
Concealer is great for hiding those under eye circles but it tends to crease, particularly if you have a few wrinkles. To keep it from doing this, begin by applying a light primer to the area before you add concealer. Be sure that you add concealer with a beauty blending sponge and dab softly to create fewer lines. Then just add powder and you should have a smooth finish without the creases.

Apply Eye Makeup Like a Pro
Getting the natural look with your eye makeup can seem difficult. To make it easier, apply liquid or gel eyeliner before you begin applying shadow. The eye liner should be subtle for the natural look. When applying shadow, remember to keep dark shadow closest to the lashes, medium shadows directly on top of dark and then lightest on top of that toward the brow.

Use Visine to Tone Down Pimples
If you have a zit that just pops up out of nowhere and you have a special evening planned, you can tone down the pimple just a bit by dabbing it with Visine. Visine helps to bring the redness to a bare minimum. Just soak a cotton ball in it and then hold it on your zit for a few minutes. The redness will go away for a few hours and you can cover up the zit itself with concealer.
Easy Two-Toned Nails
To get nails that look like they cost a fortune at the salon, you just need tape and some craft scissors. Cut tape with patterned blade scissors in lengths that will fit the length of your nails. Paint nails the color that you want on one side and allow them to dry. Once dried, apply the tape to each nail and paint the second color over the open side of the nail. Remove the tape and you have two-toned nails that are easy and perfect.

Make a Lip Stain from Kool-Aid
If you have run out of lip stain or if you just want to try a new, and tasty, color, try Kool-Aid. Just empty the packet into a plastic container and dab it on your lips with a cotton swab. It stains really well and the color can last all day long. Just a note, if you want a sweet taste you will need to use presweetened Kool-Aid powder. Kool-Aid comes in a variety of different colors so you can have different stains for any day of the week and it’s really inexpensive.
