Save Time And Money With Cool Instagram Beauty Hacks
I love life hacks, don’t you? It’s not like we’re lazy. It’s simply recognizing the fact many can actually be done quickly, easily, and cheaply. *wink* These beauty hacks are perfect examples. Do you know you can use sticky notes and fork for your makeup? Interested to find out? Then you better go through this list:
Instagram Beauty Hack #1: Nude Lipstick + Lipgloss
Whether you’re a big Selena fan or not, you’ll surely fall in love with her pouty lips. I like this more than Kylie Jenner’s since it looks more natural. But how did she achieve the look? Simple: apply a nude lipstick then coat it with lipgloss.
Instagram Beauty Hack #2: Fork For Contouring
A bad contour makes you look like a clown, but I won’t fault you easily since doing it, especially around the nose bridge, is really difficult. If you need a guide, just grab a fork.
Instagram Beauty Hack #3: Rubber Band For the Perfect French Tip
Perfecting your french tip is the most daunting task ever! Well, I feel you. However, with this Instagram beauty hack, I guess we won’t ever encounter a problem anymore.
Instagram Beauty Hack #4: Makeup Blending With A Sock
When you lost your makeup or foundation blender and you’re running late for a date, you can actually use a clean sock. Just roll the sock into a ball and start blending!
Instagram Beauty Hack #5: Heating A Lipstick
One of the most annoying parts of putting makeup inside your bag is when your favorite lippy gets broken. Good thing, this Instagram beauty hack has the answer for us: lighter (or if you don’t have a lighter, a candle or even a match will do). You just need the heat to soften the tip of the broken lippy, so it’s easier to attach and mold with the rest of the stick.

Instagram Beauty Hack # 6: Plump Lashes
How do you make your lashes appear not only curly but thicker? Use a pressed powder! First, apply a coat of mascara, then press some powder to make the mascara thick, and then finish with another coat of mascara.
Instagram Beauty Hack #7: Makeup With Eyeglasses
Not everyone is a huge fan of contact lenses, but glasses can get in the way of your overall look! Fortunately, there’s a better way to do makeup while wearing your eyeglasses: yellow-tone concealer for the eyeshadows, nude tone as an eyeliner to make your eyes appear more open, groomed and framed eyebrows to make them higher than the glass frame, and a volumizing mascara to emphasize the eyes. And if you struggle to keep your glasses from sliding down, apply an eyelid primer on the nose bridge.
Instagram Beauty Hack #8: Dark Pencil For Lip Contouring
Contouring is not only for the face but even for the cleavage and the lips too! Use a darker pencil to contour your lips before applying your lipstick. It will add volume and shape to your lips.
Instagram Beauty Hack #9: Beauty Blender Inside An “Egg”
This is one of my favorite Instagram beauty hacks! It’s not only cheap, it’s also perfect! Bringing your Beauty Blender along with you is a pain because of storage. Not anymore. Just place BB inside an Eater egg holder, and you’re good to go.
Instagram Beauty Hack #10: Post-It Note and A Cat’s Eye
Do you know it takes a lot of practice to make the perfect cat eye? If you don’t have a time, just get a sticky note and use it to help you trace. It’s also better than a tape since the note is less likely to stick firmly into your skin, which means removing it won’t be painful.
Instagram Beauty Hack #11: Alcohol And Toothpick To Fix Broken Makeup
I always consider makeup as an investment, and it’s because it can be very expensive to buy. So my heart also gets shattered every time a makeup gets broken into teeny pieces. But don’t worry, you can restore it to its previous look (or at least close) by using an alcohol. Break the entire makeup (yes, including the part not damaged), gather the tiny pieces inside its pan using a toothpick, pour alcohol, and then pat and smooth it using your fingers.
Instagram Beauty Hack #12: Dark Eyeshadow To Even Out Hairline
I was born with the most uneven hairline of life so sometimes I like to fill it in with powder when I do a tight ponytail Products: Stila in the light palette @sedonalace brush in EB 09 @pantene anti-humidity hairspray (prevents the powder from transferring) @eyerisbeauty lashes in Cleopatra (my favourite) @misaki_cosmetics lenses in grey Shoutout to @naildecor who likes to poke my bald spot and yell, “WITH THE POWER INVESTED IN ME!”

If you are one of those who suffers from an uneven hairline, then this is the easiest solution for you. Take the darkest shadow, or any eyeshadow color that closely matches your hair color, and apply it to your hairline. Blend the color to make it seamless.
Instagram Beauty Hack #13: Bobby Pin To Transform A Brush
Heavy hands are a no-no when you want to create a softer makeup for your cheeks. If you have this problem, you need a fan brush. But if you can’t find one, do this hack: insert a bobby pin on your regular brush.

Frizz can really change the length of your hair, making them appear shorter. or The secret to retaining the length is locking the moisture on your hair. You can use this amazing hair product to control the frizz immediately or try hair plopping!

Instagram Beauty Hack #16: Bands To Dry Brushes
Ladies, if you want your brushes to last long and avoid contaminating your skin with bacteria, you need to clean and dry your brushes. You can buy this cheap rack holder or, if desperation calls, tie them to a rack using a band.
