10 Brilliant Beauty Hacks



From hair to makeup, there will always be little sneaky shortcuts that will help you save time and money. We’ve collected a list of our fave beauty hacks that the girls at QUIZ HQ all swear by. These are super easy and very effective… you can thank us later <3

  1. 1. Make Your Own Lipgloss

Smashed an eyeshadow!? We’ve all done it, don’t worry… they can be reused, or up-cycled if you wanna be all correct! Your favourite shadow can be transformed into a lip gloss, just crush the eye shadow into powder, then mix with Vaseline to make any colour of lip gloss you wish and get ready to own that perfect pout!


2. Skip The Clear Base Coat

The trick is to use a coat of white nail varnish instead of a clear base coat. This will make your favourite nail shade really POP and will still protect your nails from any nasty stains from coloured nail polish – WINNER <3


3. Eye Liner Substitute

Ran out of liquid liner… don’t worry you can sub your mascara in! Just rub an eye liner brush over the mascara brush and line your eyes, the mascara will wash off your eye lids just the same way as your mascara would!

liner4. Get Rid of those split ends

If you have some split ends and are like us and very afraid of that hair dresser going all snap happy on you (why do they always do that!?) we have the trick for you. Just twist little sections of your hair together, then trim those little pesky pieces that are sticking out to make sure you get rid! This will result in sleek and shiny hair #yourworthit 🙂

hair5. The Fake Lash Appeal

Curl your lashes super fast and give off the illusion that you have fakey’s on. Just use your hairdryer to heat your eyelash curler up, be sure to let it cool for a while – then just apply as your normally would. The heat will set the curl so it will last longer.


6. Lipstick that Lasts

Our favourite lipstick never normally lasts the night, it usually smudges all off after one too many cocktails. We have just the remedy to keep your lipstick locked in all night long – all you need is a tissue and a bit of translucent powder. After you have picked your fave lippy, just hold a tissue over your lips lightly and dust a bit of translucent powder over the tissue. This helps to set the lipstick so that it lasts longer.


7. Bring Your Mascara Back To Life

Don’t throw away mascara just because it dried up. Instead, add a few drops of baby oil. This will make it moist and it will work as well as it did when you first bought it.


8. No More Bed Head

Use a bit of dry shampoo just before going to bed at night. As you move around in your sleep, the shampoo will really get worked into the hair. You will wake up with lots of volume and body – get it girl!

9. Keep under eye concealer from creasing

Concealer is great for hiding those bags from underneath your eyes. But they always seem to crease 🙁 especially 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.


10. Make your own lip venom

Add a drop or two of peppermint oil to your favourite color or lip gloss and get the same results as a lip plumper. You can pick up peppermint oil at many grocery stores. Just add to your lip gloss and mix it in well to get the same results as Lip Venom without the price tag.
