Hello Everybody!
I've actually posted on a Sunday! It's a miracle!
So, for todays post, I thought I would share with you a few life hacks in which I know of! You may already know some of these, but if you don't, I hope this helps! Enjoy!

1. Greasy Hair

Lets face it, we all get greasy hair :( So, to stop your hair from becoming greasy, you want to take some talcum powder (or baby powder, depending on what you call it) and just massage it into the roots of your hair! This will basically just stop your hair from becoming as greasy and last a bit longer!

2. Perfume

Obviously, perfume can only last a certain amount of time, so I thought I would share with you a little trick for making it last longer. Before you apply your perfume, you want to apply a small amount of vaseline to your wrists of wherever you are applying your perfume and then spray your perfume. This will make it last that little while longer!

3. Mascara

It can often be quite difficult when applying mascara to stop it from getting onto your skin, so if you struggle with that, this tricks for you! When applying mascara, you want to use a card, for example, a points card, and hold it behind your lashes. This will stop mascara from getting onto your eyelids!

4. Toothpaste

So this one is a very well known one! If you put toothpaste on your spots before you got to bed and leave it overnight, it will help to clear them up!

5. Nail Polish 

This is literally my lifesaver! You know when your nail polish is encrusted in the bottle and you can't open it? Well, this ones for you! When opening the bottle, wrap a hair band around this lid two or three times and then try and open it. This will become a lifesaver to you!

6. Charging 

Most people already know this one, but if you don't, here you go! If you put your phone on aeroplane mode while charging, it will charge quicker! This is great if you are in a rush!

7. Cans

When opening a can, it can be so easy to break a nail! So what you want to do is put a hair band underneath the pully thingy! (if any of you know what they are called, let me know!) For this you will need quite a thick hair band because the thin ones aren't as strong.

8. Keys 

We all know that feeling when we can't find the right key! So to avoid this confusion, paint the head of they key with nail polish!

9. Eyeliner

We have all had that feeling of frustration when our eyeliner won't match or just won't go straight all together. So to battle this trouble, you want to use masking tape to make sure it goes right! Before you start, you want to wax it on the back of your hand a couple of times so it loses it's stick, this way, it won't take off your make up.

10. Lipstick

Lipstick can wear VERY quickly, so to battle this problem and make it last longer, apply a small amount of powder to your lips. This will make your lipstick last so much longer!

11. Brushes

This is a new hack to me, but it works amazing! So after you've washed your brushes, you want to tip them upside down and roll them in between your hands so the water comes out of all of the fibres. This helps preserve the fluffiness of the brush!

12. Hair grips

Okay, this one may be a new one to you, but you may have been using hair grips wrong your whole life! So many people use the flat side of the grip against their hair, but in actual fact, you want to use the waved side against your hair as this will help the hair hold together much better and hold a stronger grip.

So I hope these hacks help you! Some of these will become your lifesavers! Let me know some of the ones which you enjoy and if you have any others which I have missed, make sure you leave them in the comments because I would love to know!

Thats all for this week! I will be posting again soon!
