20 Beauty Tips

After a long day at work I'm having a mindless internet browsing session, and decided to look for the top beauty tips which I'm going to share with all you lovelies. 

For uber soft hair, leave a conditioning hair masque in overnight and rinse out in the morning. 

For a defined yet subtle eye, use black eyeliner on the top lash line, and brown eyeliner on the bottom lash line. 

Run your eyelash curler under warm water or stick it under your blow drier for a second before using it to make your eyelashes curlier 

This is no secret, if you want bigger looking eyes, line your bottom eyelid with white eyeliner. (I however use gold because it blends more with my flesh tone and doesn't scare anyone) 

Try and carry a hand sanitizer around with you; touching random things on your outings could lead to bacteria build-up on your hands...and if you touch your face a lot...SPOTTTSS!!


Eat "detergent" foods. Firm or crisp foods like apples, celery, carrots, or popcorn (yes, you now have an excuse to munch on popcorn more often) are said to help clean teeth as you eat.

For thicker and more voluminous hair, spray some dry shampoo at the roots of your hair..BOOM VOLUME! 

 For yellow nails, scrub them with a nail brush and whitening toothpaste 

Apparently coconut milk makes your hair grow long and thick "“Rub it onto the scalp, leave it on for an hour or so, then wash it out.”

Avoid very hot showers/baths first thing in the morning. Hot water followed by cool, dry air leads to rough skin


Keep your eyes open when applying liquid liner — otherwise your line will look uneven


Rose and lavender "work wonders" in calming skin inflammation (according to ingredient information specialist Dr. Hauschka Skin Care, Michele VanLandingham) 

When waxing at home, apply tooth-numbing cream in the area you plan to wax about half an hour prior to your session. It will temporarily numb the skin, making the experience a little less painful.


When your lips look small, the rest of your face looks larger by comparison. Dab a shimmery gloss in the middle of your lower lip to make it appear bigger


Use a deep-cleansing mask once a week to rid your skin of impurities and dead skin cells that may be clogging pores.


For a more "pulled together" look without much make-up, make sure your eyebrows are tamed and in order as these frame your face. (I need to start taking my own advice)


For more profound, eye catching lashes, apply two different types of mascara. It adds length and definition. 


Spray a light shot of fragrance into the bristles. Run it through strands from roots to ends and your hair will smell amazing throughout the day.

For afro hair, try steaming it regularly to enhance the condition of your hair, locking in moisture and reducing breakage


Be careful where you apply your blusher as it should hit the middle of your cheekbone. If it's any higher and too close to your eyes, it will make your eyes appear red and if you place it too low, it will make you look tired

Hope you likey....Feel free to comment and add your own... the more the merrier :-)
