Between hair, makeup, and taking care of other parts of our bodies, getting ready every day can be time consuming. Mainstream beauty products tend to be extremely pricey, and it’s hard to stay on top of the latest trends. Thankfully, there are lots of beauty hacks out there that will save you time, money, and the headache.

1. Rosewater Spray

When your complexion is looking tired and dull, rosewater spray is the solution. A few spritzes will help to freshen up your skin, leave your skin tone looking more even, and give it that dewy glow.

2. DIY Teeth Whitener

You don’t need me to tell you that teeth whitening products are extremely expensive. Simply mix together one teaspoon of shaved strawberries with one teaspoon of baking soda, then use in place of toothpaste a few times a month.

3. Natural, Beachy Waves

Want hair that looks like you’ve just been to the beach, without actually having to go there? Just mix together a few teaspoons of salt with water in a spray bottle and spritz on your roots, crunching and fluffing your hair as you go along.

4. Amazing-Smelling Hair

If you want your hair to smell wonderful in between washes, just apply a spritz or two of perfume to your hairbrush. Let it dry for a few minutes, then brush your hair. Your locks will smell heavenly!

5. Make Your Products Work Double-Duty

Run out of eyeliner and don’t have time to go buy more? No problem. Just dip a small angled brush into your mascara for instant liquid eyeliner.

6. Get Rid Of Stretch Marks

Although coconut oil is a great preventer of stretch marks, this natural substance also helps to eliminate the appearance of them. Just rub the coconut oil onto your stretch marks before you go to bed each night and you will start to notice a difference.

7. Firmer Breasts

If you want the skin on your breasts to be firmer and more supple, rub some Vaseline onto them every night before bed. Over time, the Vaseline will help them to be firmer, more elastic, and the skin around them to be softer.

8. Cover Those Roots

If you have gray roots coming in but have to wait to go to the salon, just use mascara to cover them in a pinch! This is also a good trick for making your hair appear fuller and more voluminous.

9. Curl Your Lashes

For eyelashes that really hold their curl, heat up your eyelash curler in your bra for a minute before using it. The little bit of heat will help your lashes curl and hold it throughout the day.

10. Eliminate Dark Circles

If you have dark, puffy under-eyes, just soak a few green tea bags in water, then hold them under your eyes. Leave them there for 10-15 minutes, then remove.

11. Set Your Lipstick

If you don’t want to worry about your lipstick smudging, just hold a tissue over your lips after applying lipstick. Dab the tissue with some translucent face powder and your lipstick will be instantly set in place.

12. Thicker, Longer Lashes

You don’t need eyelash extensions to have thicker, longer lashes. After applying your first coat of mascara, use a cotton ball or Q-tip to carefully dust your lashes in baby powder. Then, apply another coat of mascara. Your lashes will look extra long and voluminous.
