The cool gel will be soothing and can help reduce inflammation in the eye area.

16. If you've run out of eyeliner, but have mascara, it can do double duty.

Use your liner brush to swipe a bit of mascara, and use it to line your upper lashes. Get the full instructions here. Mirenesse iCurl Mascara works wonders and does double duty.

17. If you don't want your makeup to move an inch, spend $11 on some Ben Nye Final Seal.

It's a makeup sealer that professionals use to keep makeup from sweating off or sliding off your face and basically your new BFF if you're planning on going dancing or running or doing something super active.

20. Use the one and done philosophy: If you've got only a short amount of time (or energy), play up either your eyes or your lips, not both.

And if you don't feel like going crazy with your eyes, a quick comb of an eyebrow brush and a swipe of mascara can usually do the trick.

23. If you want to make your flaky, clumpy mascara last longer, mix a little contact solution in.

But if you've had it for longer than three months, toss no matter what. You DO NOT NEED/WANT an eye infection.

24. Too lazy to wash your face at night? Keep face wipes by your bed.

Boots, Skyn Iceland, Josie Maran, Ole Henricksen, and Burt's Bees all make awesome and easy-to-carry wipes.

28. Give yourself a healing foot treatment while you sleep.


Apply peppermint moisturizer or Vaseline to your tired and cracked feet, and then throw on some comfy, cushioned socks. And head to bed. That's IT. Wake up with soft, smooth feet.

34. Add a little bit of cornstarch to a glossy polish to give a matte finish.

35. Get rid of pain-in-the-ass glitter polish with this tinfoil trick!

Soak a cotton ball in remover, put it on your nail, wrap the nail in tin foil, and let it chill for 10–15 minutes. After that, it'll wipe right off!

36. To avoid extra polish messing up your cuticles, put Elmer's glue around your nails before you paint them.

Once everything is dry, peel it off and you're good to go!

40. If you don't want to bother with fixing and refixing your hair all day long, spray your bobby pins with hairspray before you put them in.
