Hey, y’all! Coming at you from my quarantine bunker to share my ultimate list of beauty tips I’ve learned over the years that changed my routine! I love experimenting with new ways to use skincare and makeup, so any time I’ve found a technique I love it usually stays with me forever! Some of these are so old I got them out of old Seventeen magazines, while some are so new I just found on Tik Tok!
Ultimate List Of Beauty Tips From The Internet
Use Cheap Conditioner As Shaving Cream
Y’all, this is the one I got from Seventeen magazine back in the day 😂I have done this religiously since and it works like a dream and saves so much money! I just snag the massive bottle of conditioner for $6 at Target, and it lasts me months!
I always hated that women’s razors are so much more expensive than mens’. So I started buying mens’ razors! And quite frankly, they work better. They’re meant for sensitive skin on the face and they give a closer shave. I’ve done this for years and it works great! Don’t get conned by the pink packaging!
Use A Toothbrush for Flyaways
This one is perfect for those summer pony tails! All you have to do is get a dollar store toothbrush, spray some hair spray on it and brush back the flyaways.
Dry Shampoo Night Routine
To get the most out of your dry shampoo, spray it on your hair before you go to bed. Don’t rub it in! I usually put my hair in a silk scrunchie as well. Sleep on it, and rub it in in the morning. It will absorb all of that oil while you’re sleeping, so your hair will be voluminous and look fresh! I had a reader tell me, when I shared this hack on Insta forever ago, that this is a great hack for her as a mom when she doesn’t have a lot of time in the mornings! Just rub it in and go!
Pro tip: If you work out in the mornings, wait to rub it in until after your workout. It will keep absorbing the sweat and oil caused by exercise!
Huge, Voluminous Lashes
After I showed my friends this tip they now SWEAR by it! To get the biggest, most voluminous lashes first swipe a fiber lash mascara on them [the best way to apply fiber mascara is to hold the brush up to your lashes and blink! You’ll get the longest lashes from the fibers that way], then apply a voluminous mascara over the top of that one. I swear y’all, nothing works as good!

Another good eyelash tip for those whose eyelashes don’t stay curled [mine always end up stick straight by the end of the day], is to heat up your eyelash curler before you use it! I use my blow dryer for just a few seconds to warm it up. Be careful though! Don’t burn yourself.
Tik Tok Foundation Tip
If you have a Tik Tok I’m sure you’ve seen this one! It makes your foundation look FLAWLESS. So all you have to do it put your moisturizer on like normal, then use a fluffy brush to apply powder all over your face [my fave is this one], then spray setting spray all over and let dry. Then, apply your primer then foundation like normal. It works so well and makes your makeup last all day!
Spray That Setting Spray!
If you’ve read any of my makeup tutorials you probably know this one. I swear by it in this Texas heat! After every application of a powder to your face, spray a layer of setting spray. Bronzer, spray. Contour, spray. Etc. Then, when you apply your highlight spray your brush with setting spray then dip into your highlight. It makes it so much brighter!
How To Shape Your Eyebrows
This one saved my eyebrows – using three lines of reference I take a brow or eyeliner pencil and for the inner most part of your eyebrow, it should align straight down with your nostril. Then, take the pencil and align it with your pupil when you’re looking forward. That will be the beginning of your arch. Lastly, for the tail of your eyebrow, angle the pencil and align it to the outer corner of your eye and your nostril. I added a photo below for reference!
