Whether you’re always in a rush or just lazy (I feel you), why pass up an opportunity to find the efficient, shortcut way of doing things? There seems to be a hack for everything, and when it comes to beauty who would say no to inexpensive, timesaving alternatives to doing things the hard way? Don’t miss out on a chance to make your life easier while enhancing your everyday beauty routine.
Dry your freshly painted nails by running them under cold water.
Use a credit card (or anything with a straight edge) to guide your eyeshadow and eyeliner in a smooth, straight line. Can’t do winged eyeliner? Now you can.

Soften your feet overnight by applying Vaseline and wearing socks to bed.
