7 Beauty Hacks

I’m sure every girl has experienced not bringing all of their makeup when travelling somewhere. I am guilty of this quite often because I pack so quickly. Here are 7 tricks that will help you make the most of what you have in your makeup bag!


  1. Use a bronzer to contour. Instead of having two different powders – use one for both applications. If you have a bronzer with no shimmer it can be used to warm up your face as well as cutting those cheek bones!!
  2. Highlight with a shimmer eyeshadow. If you’re new to highlighting and want to try it, or have simply lost/forgotten your highlighter, you can still get that glow with a shimmery eyeshadow. It is also a way to experiment with all the different shades, for example you could prefer a golden shade instead of a peachy one.
  3. Fill in your eyebrows with eyeshadow and set with vaseline. Your eyebrows can look just as amazing when they’re filled in with a matching eyeshadow and angled brush. It’s also easier to find the perfect shade this way, because there are limited shades of some eyebrow pencils.
  4. Use a peachy lipstick/gloss for your blush. By using a lipstick it also gives you that dewy look, you only need a little bit of product on your finger before blending it out.
  5. Do your eyeliner with an angled brush and black eyeshadow. This works just as well as any other liner, it is also easier if you’re doing a smoky look.
  6. Crush some eyeshadow and mix with vaseline for a lipgloss. Mix the crushed eyeshadow on the back of your hand with some vaseline and you’ll have the perfect shimmery lipgloss.
  7. Set your makeup by applying a gel primer on top. As well as using it to prime your face, you can dab a little bit of the gel primer on top of your makeup where you get oily and it should help to control it.

    I love this post, I too am guilty of packing a rush and forgetting everything haha! Another of my favourite hacks is applying vaseline before a super sticky lipgloss, so that you get the colour of the gloss but no the stickiness! X

    Awesome post! I love the black eyeshadow as eyeliner one – I used to do this all the time, it really helps if you dampen (but not wet!) your brush first for a smoother, more liquid look 🙂
