In her 11 Beauty Hacks video, YouTube blogger Wengie shares some of her favourite hair and makeup tips. Many of these involve being creative, saving money, and reducing waste.
The first of these is putting green tea into a spray bottle, cooling it in the fridge, and spraying it on your face as a gentle toner. Similarly, she notes that putting regular chemical toner into a spray bottle and refrigerating it reduces waste from cotton pads and feels great in the summer heat. She also suggests putting used green tea bags on your eyes to reduce puffiness and under-eye bags.
Wengie’s next tip is to spray perfume onto your hairbrush as a way to subtly scent your hair. She also likes putting essential oils like coconut oil onto her hairbrush to keep hair soft and shiny between shampoos and soften bristles on a natural bristle brush. Her next hair tips include spraying bobby pins with hairspray for a more secure hairstyle hold putting the curvy side of the pins down for maximum grip. Next she suggests painting bobby pins with nail polish in order to match any colour of hair dye.
After that, Wengie explains that putting a kitchen sponge in a jar and pouring nail polish remover in is an easy and reusable way to remove nail polish without creating cotton ball waste. She also creates her own facial cleansing wipes using cotton pads and makeup remover. Next she suggests using coconut oil as a way to remove dirt and makeup without actually washing your face.
Wengie then demonstrates how to stick toner-soaked cotton pads onto your cheeks in order to plump out smile lines before applying makeup. Her final beauty hack involves cutting a lone eye of fake lashes into a set of two half-lashes. She suggest applying these for a more natural lash look.
