Simple Beauty Hacks Part 1

I have compiled a list for the top beauty hacks. I have tried all of these and they are foolproof and super simple for anyone to try. A lot of these you probably have already heard of these or tried them , and I am sure some of these are new to you. All of these tips are super simple and the items used are common house hold items you probably already have.

Make eye hashes longer by heating eyelash curler with hair dryer. This is number one for a reason, i've been doing this everyday for years. I do not recommend for you to doing this everyday, it may damage your lashes but I do recommend using it for special occasions. It's very simple, after applying your mascara, turn your hairdryer on and blow it on your eyelash curler for about 5 seconds(do not over heat or it will burn your eyelid!) then curl lashes as usual and voila! longer lashes!

Dip eye shadow brush in eye drops to make eyeshadow pop. This is another hack I use on a daily basis, and it is safe for daily use. Before applying your eyeshadow, put a few drops of eye drops on your brush, then dip it in your eyeshadow, and apply as usual and watch your eyeshadow color pop!

Put peroxide on toothbrush to whiten teeth. If your teeth is looking less than vibrant, just pour or spray some peroxide on your toothbrush, then put toothpaste on bush and brush as usual for 2 minutes. You will notice a whiter smile in a couple of days. I found this peroxide in a a spray bottle at walgreens and it works perfect.

Use hair conditioner for shaving cream. Just rub a small dollop of conditioner on legs before shaving. It gets a closer shave than shaving cream, makes your legs silky smooth and no razor burn! Note: You don't want to use your expensive conditioner for this, a cheap drugstore brand works fine.

Use your toothbrush to remove dead skin on lips. Lip exfoliates can be crazy expensive so save money by lightly brushing away the dead skin or rough spots on your lips before you apply lipstick or gloss. It always works and makes your lips look extra smooth.

Use baby powder in place of dry shampoo. This is for blondes or light brown haired women only, I tried it on my black hair and it ended up looking grayish. Out of dry shampoo and don't have time to wash your hair?  My blonde haired mom has done this for years, put a small amount of baby powder on the roots and part of your hair and it will absorb all the oil.

When I finished, I realized I had so many to share that it would be way too long for one blog post so I am going to post the second part next week.

Let me know if you try any of these or if you already have tried them :)
I would also love to hear some of your beauty hacks so leave them in the comment box below!

Bare Minerals Beauty and the Beach Review

Last week I cashed in my beauty points on for this lovely sample set by bare minerals. The set is called Beauty and the Beach and it includes 5 pieces for a summer look. The set included marvelous moxie lip gloss in party starter, ready bronzer in the skinny dip, bare minerals ready blush in the natural high, all over face color in pure radiance and a sample of their lash domination mascara. So here is my take on the set: Here it is ladies!
Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Party Starter- this is a darker, coral and peach color. It was very sticky but it lasted for a few hours. It matched the blush perfectly.
Ready Blush in The Natural High: This blush is a nice peachy pink color, it looks really shimmery in the package but looks more matte when applied. I loved that the color matched the gloss!
Ready Bronzer in The Skinny Dip- I used this to contour and sculpt my face and it turned out beautiful. It matched my skin tone very nicely. Its very similar to the too faced bronzers.

Review: Too Faced Teddy Bear Brush Set

By request, here is my very first beauty product review.

This lovely brush set is the Teddy Bear Hair Brush Set by Too Faced Cosmetics, $65 on I've always been a fan of Too Faced, there products are great and I love how they package and market their products. So of course I was very excited to receive this brush set. This set comes with 5 makeup brushes and a bag to carry them. I love tge bag, I see myself using it for something else; i dont like tge idea of makeup brushes being loose in a bag. The set includes a large powder brush and 4 brushes for the eyes, contour, blender, all over shadow and liner.

The brushes as expected, are super soft. They really feel like a soft teddy bear! I also loved that they printed the name of the brush on the handle, so you could always know what each brush is for. So after using the brushes to apply my makeup here are my thoughts:

Powder Brush: This is my new favorite big brush! I don't wear powder but I used it for a blush brus…
