Beauty tricks you need to know

Today was/is the most beautiful day, well for me it was and it's all thanks to the beautiful cherry blossoms right outside my house (the thought of spring makes me so incredibly happy). To "celebrate" this wonderful day I'm sharing 21 beauty tricks you just need to know. These amazing tips and tricks are brought to you by Beauty High

 1. Wet your makeup sponge before using it on your face for a smooth, even, natural-looking foundation finish.

2. To get rid of split ends without going for a full haircut, twist the lengths of your hair into a tight ponytail. Wherever you see a stray, split end peek out of the twist, snip with scissors.
3. Pat your hair dry with a cotton t-shirt instead of rubbing with a towel to reduce frizz.
4. After you paint your nails, use cooking spray from about 10 inches away and spray your nails to make them dry faster. 
5. Clean up the edges of your cat eye or lipstick with a dab of foundation on a earbud, removing and concealing the stray marks at the same time. 
6.  Mix liquid highlighter with your moisturiser for a glow all over your face. 
7. Crush up aspirin and mix with water until a paste is formed. Apply to a bikini rash or area with ingrown hairs to reduce swelling, redness and irritation.
8. Use your hair dryer to blow hot air on your eyelash curler for about 10-15 seconds before curling your lashes. The heat will help hold the curl.
9. To pack for maximum protection while traveling, tuck any fragile bottles inside of your shoes.
10. Apply Vaseline around the edges of your nails before painting them to easily wipe away any polish that may have gotten on your skin without ruining your manicure.

11. Add 3-4 eye drops to a tube of dry mascara to re-hydrate and give you a smoother, fuller application.
12. Section your hair out about 4-5 times and braid each section loosely. Go over each braid with a flat iron, then undo your hair to reveal perfect beach waves. 
 13. To keep your skin acne free, wash your hands before washing your face. Also, use separate towels for drying your hands and drying your face so bacteria isn’t passed from your hands to your skin.
14. Exfoliate your lips with a toothbrush and sugar scrub before applying lipstick for a smooth, even finish.
15. For a tight, clean braid, use just a pinch of hair wax as you braid to keep stray baby hairs in place.
16. To prevent blisters, rub clear deodorant on your heels or anywhere your shoes rub against, to ease the friction that can cause skin irritations.
17. Dust just a bit of baby powder over your eyelashes before applying mascara. The powder will act as a primer, giving you thicker, lush lashes.
18. On long days when you need your makeup to last, apply a cream or liquid formula first, then follow it with a light application powder.
19. To make your lips appear larger, begin by applying lip color as you normally would. Then, with your finger, dab the same color but two shades darker into the center of your top and bottom lips.
20. For healthier, shinier hair, start using a co-wash. Alternate between shampoo and a cleansing conditioner on days you’d normally wash your hair, giving your scalp a chance to absorb the natural oils it produces without stripping them away with shampoo every wash.

21. Have three five-minute hairstyle techniques down pat for mornings when you’re in a rush and you’re having a bad hair day. Being prepared with a plan means bad hair days will happen way less often.
