Top 5 Easy Beauty Hacks

Looking to get the most out of your beauty routine? You’ve come to the right place. Welcome to MsMojo and today we're counting down our picks for the Top 5 Easy Beauty Hacks.
For this list, we’re looking at super easy tricks and tips that’ll simplify and improve your beauty routine, using products you probably already have in your house.

#5: Use Olive Oil to Remove Makeup

Whether your micellar water just ran out or you’re simply interested in experimenting with a new makeup removing technique, you need look no further than your kitchen pantry. The idea of putting any kind of oil on your face can be a terrifying prospect for many, especially if you’re prone to acne. But it turns out that adding oil to your makeup routine actually stops your body from producing excess amounts of the natural oils that make your face greasy. If you’re still wary of this technique, start with your eye makeup. Once you see the results for yourself, you can work your way up to using the oil cleansing method on your entire face.

#4: Mix Contact Solution into Your Mascara

One of the most annoying beauty problems is having your tube of mascara dry up long before you’ve actually run out of product. Luckily, we’ve got a couple of solutions to resuscitate your favorite lash products. The first thing to try is adding a couple of drops of regular contact solution to your mascara. Alternatively, if you don’t have any lens solution handy, try placing your tube in a bowl of warm water for several minutes. A key beauty safety tip to remember: mascara only has a shelf life of three to six months so don’t try to revive a mascara that would be best thrown in the trash.

#3: Fix Your Broken Compacts

Is there anything worse than your new highlighter or eye shadow palette shattering after you drop it? Fear not beauty lovers, because there’s a solution. If any of your powder compacts shatter or crumble, all you need is a little bit of rubbing alcohol. The higher the concentration you use, the better, so look for something that’s 70 percent or higher. If your makeup is in large chunks, break it up into more of a fine powder and then add a few drops of alcohol until it’s a workable consistency. Press it back into shape and then leave it overnight to let the excess alcohol evaporate. Voila! Good as new.

#2: Use Vaseline to Keep Perfume Lasting Longer

Vaseline makes for a super helpful assistant when it comes to a variety of beauty tasks, from moisturizing your lips to taking off your eye makeup. Here’s a new trick for you to add to the list: rub Vaseline on the pulse points where you normally spritz your perfume and then layer the scent on top. The Vaseline will act as a primer that will make the scent last much longer than it would on dry skin. This one’s a life saver if your favorite fragrance only comes in full sized bottles, making it inconvenient to try to carry with you in your purse. With Vaseline, there’s no need to reapply on the go.

#1: Heat Up Your Curler

Want full baby doll lashes without using falsies? Try heating things up! By using your blow dryer to warm your eyelash curler before you use it, it will give your eyelashes an extra boost. You’ll want to use your dryer on a low setting and be careful not to overheat the metal curler because you don’t want to risk burning the sensitive skin around your eyes. This hack is definitely gaining traction, as evidenced by the fact that various companies have actually started selling electric eyelash curlers that heat up on their own. But hey, if you’re on a budget, the original DIY method has already proven its effectiveness.
