I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for new tips and tricks relating to beauty. Over the past couple of years I've learnt a number of different "life hacks" that I now can't live without and I thought that today I would share those with you.

Below are 10 beauty life hacks that have transformed my life:

1. Use a spoon to apply your eye liner!
I used to really struggle with eye liner. I don't know what it was, but I just couldn't seem to apply it. I'd always do it perfectly on one eye and then ruin it with the other. Using a teaspoon has changed my life in terms of applying eye liner. It helps you create the perfect flick in just a couple of minutes!

2. Use a white base coat instead of a clear one to make the nail varnish more vibrant!
I own a lot of nail varnish in my collection but I don't tend to reach for a lot of them because I know they're transparent, unless you apply 3 or 4 coats. I now apply a white base coat and it makes such a difference!

3. Use a white eye liner pencil as an eye shadow base to help make your eye shadows more vibrant!
It makes such a difference to your eye look and works similar to the point above.

4. In order to rescue your dried up mascara, put it in a mug of boiling water.
I always used to throw out dried mascaras, but since I've been using this trick they last so much longer.

5. Mix your pigments with Vaseline to make your own lip colour.
This is such a good trick, I have bought pigments from mac and Barry M before and not used them very much but I've mixed them with Vaseline and now the product is a 2 in 1. Genius!

6. Use hair conditioner instead of shaving cream.
This trick is pretty self explanatory, but the conditioner makes your legs feel just as smooth as when you use shaving creams.

7. Use antiperspirant on your feet to prevent blisters.
This works wonders, I swear. I always used to get blisters when wearing new shoes, but since I've been using this trick, it doesn't happen any more!

8. Fix a broke lipstick by using a lighter to heat it up and then once it's back in place pop it into the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour to let it set.
Some of my favourite lipsticks have broken over the year during nights out at University but I've fixed them using this trick and they're like brand new again!

9. If you have a sparkly eye shadow that you don't reach for but don't want to chuck out, crush it up and mix it with clear nail polish.
You'll have a brand new nail varnish! I love this trick it's great for getting one of a kind nail colours.

10. If you need your nails to dry quickly, submerge them into cold water after applying your polish, after a few minutes they'll be dry.
This trick is genius! I used to ALWAYS smudge my nails and now I don't have to worry about it! This is definitely a life changer!
