Top 10 beauty tips

I have always loved beauty products. I loved them before I even considered Sprucenews and I still love them now. Probably even more in fact. I think over the years as I have built up my makeup collection and tried out new looks and styles, I have realised that I have a variety of tips and tricks that I use within my beauty regime. Of course this means I am going to share them with you today.. So here are my TOP 10 BEAUTY TIPS!

Freeze your Eyeliner - Does your eye-liner constantly crumble while putting it on? Try leaving it in the freezer for 15 minutes prior to applying your makeup. It should glide along your lash line seamlessly after that.

Shave with conditioner - If you're out of shaving cream, lather your legs with conditioner instead of soap. Conditioner will not only soften the hair on your legs making it easier to shave but it will also leave your skin feeling extra silky.

Don't neglect your elbows - It's easy to forget the small parts of your body that need protection and care. Your elbows are one of them, if you suffer from dry skin on your elbows try using Bio-Oil. Massage into your elbows daily and you should see a difference in your skin in around two days. 

Toothpaste on your spots - You've heard it before, don't pop your spots! if you suffer from acne or you often get a pimple or two  try applying a bit of toothpaste to your pimples before bed and washing it off with warm water when you wake up in the morning. They say that toothpaste draws impurities out of clogged pores and dries the skin which shrinks the pimple. Opt for organic toothpastes rather than gel toothpastes which don't work as well.                                                                                                                          
No makeup remover? Try lotion instead - If you have run out of makeup remover, use your body lotion to get rid of makeup. It works especially well on tough products such as mascara and eye-liner.                                                                                                                    
Uses for old mascara wands - Don't throw away your old mascara wands, it's still got a few uses left. Clean it and use it as a brow brush instead.      
Don't pump your mascara - Never pump your mascara (i.e. moving the wand up and down in the tube really quickly) because it will only allow air into the tube which will cause your mascara to dry (and ultimately shorten its lifespan).        
Clean your makeup brushes - Make sure you clean your makeup brushes regularly to avoid a build-up of makeup residue and bacteria. You can purchase makeup brush cleaner from a drug or beauty store, or you can simply use shampoo and conditioner to clean your brushes as you would your own hair. Clean brushes guarantee a super smooth and even makeup application every time. 
Towel dry the right way - Don't rub your hair dry with your towel; it will cause your hair to frizz. Instead, before getting out of the shower gently squeeze excess water from your hair. Then, wrap your hair in a towel and pat it dry to absorb any remaining moisture.    
Top coat is a must - Add a top coat to freshly painted nails, and then again once they are dry. This makes your nail polish less likely to chip and will ensure it lasts longer.
