Beauty hacks that actually work
We talk a lot about beauty hacks here at bh, but I’ll admit I haven’t been game enough to try all of them. Some - like these hacks for mums - aren’t relevant to my routine, while others just seem too complicated (which if you ask me, defeats the whole purpose of hacks!).
With this in mind, I decided it was time not just to share, but to show you some beauty tricks I turn to time and time again. They’re quick and easy, and they actually work. Promise.
Of course, I’m not the only one who loves a beauty hack - the bh team is sitting on a goldmine of sneaky tips that help them to look #onpoint every day.
So, if the tricks in the video above aren’t your thing, there’s a good chance you’ll find your Holy Grail beauty hack below...
“I've used sticky tape to create winged liner and it really does work! The only downside is you either have to touch up your foundation because the sticky tape removes some of it, or apply your foundation after your eyes, which is tricky because you don't want to smudge the wing!” - bh’s Sam
"If I want my make-up to be super dewy, I mix a little liquid highlighter (Benefit High Beam is my go-to!) into my foundation. It adds extra luminosity to my look without making my face too shiny." - bh’s Anna
“When my lip gloss or lip balm gets a bit gloopy, I mix it with a bit of eye cream so it becomes smooth again. It also makes the formula more moisturising!” - bh’s Tina
“I love a good toothbrush hack! There are two I use regularly that actually work. The first is really simple: use your toothbrush to scrub your lips and exfoliate any dead skin cells. It leaves your pout so smooth! The second is to spray the bristles with hair spray and use it to brush down flyaways. Use a new or clean toothbrush for this, of course!” - bh’s Sam
“My hair used to be really long, so to make it easier to curl, I would put it in a ponytail. This meant I had easy access to the mid-lengths/ends. After curling, all I had to do was pull my hair out of the elastic and voilà: perfect curls!” - bh’s Julia
