Rae's Beauty Life Hacks

Rae's Beauty Life Hacks
  1. If you’re having trouble sharpening your makeup pencils, pop them in the fridge or freezer for a couple of minutes before sharpening to firm them up.
  2. My motto for all lip products has to be “too much on your mouth goes south”.  Body temperature heats up all lipsticks, so they will start to slide – but here is the trick, when buying any lip product, test it on your fingertip not the back of your hand. The reason being is that your fingertip is more closely matched to the texture and colour of your lip, as it has a bluer red undertone.
  3. If your mascara is dried out, but not yet expired, add a few eye drops into the tube and it’s ready to go again.
  4. If you are jet lagged (or just exhausted!), use a white eye pencil on your inner eye which will help cover redness.
  5. Use anti-red eye drops on a cotton bud to soothe skin and take away redness of a pimple. Just add a few drops to the end of a cotton bud then hold on the blemish for approximately 1 minute. Works a treat!
