9. To get the most out of your mascara, stick in your bra for a few minutes to warm it up.

It'll work magic on your lashes and curl so much better.

10. 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.

11. 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.

12. If you want to fake fuller lips, applying light pencil in the center of your lips will do the trick.

14. Use the one and done philosophy: If you've only got a short amount of time (or energy), either play up 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.

17. 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.

19. If you want longer lashes without extensions, add baby powder to your lash routine.


Simply use a cotton swab to dab on baby powder in between mascara applications and you'll have longer, thicker lashes—easy.

23. 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.

27. Want to create cool nail art but don't have the tools? Totally cool.

You can use a number of things you already have around the house — like bobby pins, pen tips, or matchstick tips — to get the job done.

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

33. 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.

34. Drying your hair takes so much work. Get a hair dryer holder and make your life a thousand times easier.

Hands-free hairdryers are also an option, though they've had mixed results. A better option might be a wall-mounted stand that lets you take the dryer out when you want.

And then graduate to the FULL BODY VERSION.
