Easy Everyday Beauty Hacks Every Girl Should Know

Over the past year I’ve grown from a not-so enthusiastic fan of makeup to someone who sees the importance of looking good with as little makeup as possible. Some hacks come very handy on days I’m either dashing out to work or having a last minute outing and these are easy everyday beauty hacks every girl should know. Honestly, I only do full face makeup on special occasions. However, the essence of makeup cannot be undermined as makeup could have you go from looking extremely stressed to looking great in less than 10 minutes. Hacks are generally a faster and easy way to do something without the normal procedure or tools needed.

Carry a makeup purse with your essential makeup

Makeup bags and purses come in different sizes and styles these days which makes them easy to carry around in handbags. Have your concealer, powder, bronzer, eyeliner and lipstick in a makeup purse which you can create a look from or even touch up the makeup you already have on. Your makeup brushes can also go into the makeup purse depending on how large it is.

Curl your eyelashes with a spoon

You can make your lashes look fuller simply by placing a spoon on your upper eyelid and pressing your lashes against them. If you do not have mascara with you or lashes curler, this hack would come in handy.

Make your pencil eyeliner darker by heating it

This beauty hack works incredibly! Just hold your pencil eyeliner (or brow pencil) to heat for a few seconds and it will come out looking darker and almost gel like. For those that don’t know the difference between pencil and gel eyeliner, gel eyeliner is basically in a liquid like form which goes on more smoothly and pigmented.

Eyeshadow instantly improves your looks

Eyeshadow calls attention to the eyes and enhances beauty instantly. It’s important you know the colors that go well with your skin tone though. I am particularly a fan of subtle eyeshadow but some people like the smoky look and don’t mind loud colors on their eyelids which is fine. Loud eyeshadow colors should be complimented with subtle lipstick color. If you’ve got no time to spare, leave one for the other.

Lipstick doubles as a blush

Get some of your red or pink lipstick depending on your skin color and dab a little on your cheekbones. Rub lightly and your cheeks will look pinker, creating the blush effect. Matte lipsticks won’t work for this hack though.

Use a business card for the perfect cat eye

Whether you’re trying to get the perfect cat eye shadow look or simply using liquid eyeliner, a business card, ATM card or any other hard card would help you get the perfect angle until you master drawing it. I learned how to draw a winged eyeliner with a business card.

Smudge your eyeliner to create a smoky look

So you have no eyeshadow palette on you but you’ve got eyeliner? Apply and smudge a little to create a smoky effect. I have turned a smeared mascara into a smoky look using this hack a couple of times and I got away with it just fine.

The few hacks above will have you looking great on days you can’t spare time for a full face makeup look or you’re in a hurry. This post features Zaful and there are more beauty items to shop from on their website. Head over there and check them out. They ship internationally and will have your makeup looking lit.

Top Swimwear Designs Your Wardrobe Needs

It’s a free day for you and you finally have time to relax at the pool side but there’s a problem. Your swimsuit is not trendy enough! Relax, I am here to the rescue with trendy top swimwear designs your wardrobe needs. I might not be much of the swimmer but I do look forward to days I get to swim particularly the relaxing effect of the water and of course, photos that come after of the swimsuit. Who can relate?

Did you know swimming was discouraged in the Middle Age and there was no need for swimwear at all then? Swimsuits in recent times have shifted from the traditional body suit to two pieces and even women sexy bikini. Swimwear over the years have seen different designs and been made from different materials. Throwing on a kimono is a fashion trend commonly seen at the beach side or the pool now. Which type of bikini should you go for you wonder? Whichever you’re comfortable with. Being confident about your body makes it really easy to wear almost any kind of swimsuit. Some swimsuit designs to select from include:

Two Piece Bandeaus

There is a difference between a bandeau and a normal bikini. Two piece bikini come in two pieces, the upper piece and the bottoms. Bandeaus bottoms are designed to be more flattering for the legs. If you’ve got great legs, why not flaunt it? The strapless high cut bandeau made of chinlon with padded bra would look good for a beach day. The material is elastic, provides support and the bandeau is wire free.

One Shoulder Bikinis

So you’re not a fan of off-shoulder bikini or the bandeau bikini but still want to show off your arms? The one shoulder bikini would be great. The one shoulder bikini set is made of spandex and completely wire free. You can choose different bikini colors and even mix them up.

Off Shoulder Bikini

An off shoulder bikini comes with the popular off shoulder cut and bikini bottoms. With the sudden trend and how great off-shoulder looks, this bikini is a must have for your wardrobe. It gives comfort and provides the extra sass you’d need at the poolside. Paired with sandals, you’re good to go.

Traditional One Piece

I probably speak for myself and other millennials in saying we grew up knowing this type of swimwear. My first swimming classes had me clad in this type of swimwear. They come in the straight design you have to step into and different colours. Other swimwear designs are regarded as non-traditional. Modern day traditional one piece swimsuits now come in different cuts and some with catchy captions.

Crop Top Bikinis

Crop top bikinis basically have cuts that give room for the waist, navel and midriff to show, somewhat like a crop top. The wire-free padded bralette string bikini made of nylon and spandex comes with a scoop collar and strings to be tied by the sides. It is chic and a must have for your wardrobe.
