Easy Beauty Fixes

I'm no beauty expert. In fact, I'm pretty much a beginner. Saying that, though, I thought that I'd share with you a few things that I've learned along the way. Just to put it out there, these may not work as well for you as they do for me.
1. A clean mascara wand dipped in coconut oil 
This has endless uses, some of my favourites being for eyelashes, brows, and frizzies. I've definitely seen a positive change in my lashes after using this before bed for a few weeks.
2. Bobby pins sprayed with hairspray 
Doing this before using in your hair will make a much neater and easier 'do.
3. Exfoliate your lips with a toothbrush before bed and applying a balm
This is one of the easiest ways for me to tackle the struggle of waking up with soft lips.
4. Lemon water
I always have a glass of this after I wake up, and it clears my skin and leaves me looking refreshed.
5. Find the right skincare product for you
Ok, so this isn't that easy and I have yet to accomplish it. But it can make a huge difference. I think that skincare should be the biggest priority in your beauty routine and that a good base is super important.

Also, I'd like to remind you guys to please vote in my contest!
There have been some votes that seem to be fake, which makes me sad. I've deleted the ones that I've suspected of being false, and I'm sorry if I've deleted any honest ones in the process.

What are some of your favourite easy beauty fixes?

  11. Ooo the third one sounds really interesting! My lips tend to get very dry the majority of the time, so this would be a good one for me to try out. I also like the idea of hair-spraying your bobby pins, it would make it much more easier to just keep the smaller parts of your hair in place.

    I would also just like to let you know that I have nominated you for the creative blogger award. For any further details just head on over to my blog:) x

  15. I hope you don't exfoliate your lips too often. Just once to two times a week will suffice!

  29. When I drink lemon water, I think of you :D And I do drink it from time to time, I love lemons.

    I'm not a beauty expert either so don't worry ;) My tip would be to avoid shampoos with many alcohol additions, they can cause skin allergies.

  33. My country's weather is crazy.. I can never have a solid phased coconut oil in room temperature. The one they sell in the market are all in liquid form. Haha. Love your tips. I do #3 a lot too! and couldn't agree more with #5. Good base is so important and also SPF! Wearing sunblock since young would benefit us when we get older. ;D
