♡ Ok so yes we all drink Beer and hate the smell of Vinegar BUT who would have ever thought these two items would be great for HAIR?  Oh yes my friend! Rinsing your hair with beer helps restore moisture to your locks while using vinegar will up the ante in shine. Soak your hair in either liquid (not at the same time) for a few minutes, then rinse with cold water and get ready for some beautiful locks!

♡ Love how your conditioner makes your hair super soft? Imagine how it can make your body soft and silky too! If you’re out of shaving cream, lather your legs with conditioner instead of soap. Conditioner will soften the hair on your legs making it easier to shave (and it will leave your skin feeling extra silky).


3. Eyeliner in the Freezer?



♡ This is a new trick that you probably have never heard of! If your eyeliner is soft and always crumbles while putting it on then this is your trick!  Try leaving the liner the freezer for 15 minutes prior to applying your makeup. It should glide along your lash line seamlessly after that without falling into pieces.


4. Heat up your Lash Curler!

♡ Giving yourself a natural glow on your cheeks is the look for spring. But you’ll want to avoid brushing on too much. So always start your blush line two finger widths away from your nose and only apply it on the apples of your cheeks. This will ensure you create a natural glow without going overboard.


7. Use Hairspray for your brows
