Here they are: The Best Beauty Hacks, According To You.


“To apply foundation beautifully, I put 1-2 drops of face oil on the back of my hand, dip my foundation brush and buff the foundation. It makes the skin really smooth and glow-y!”



“Honey is my favourite face mask! I also use homeoplasmine to turn powder eyeshadows in cream. I use Bioderma for everything from mild cleansing, lip exfoliation (it’s super effective), and removing the flaky skin off new tattoo.”



“I don’t apply an eye cream, but instead I love to use a thick, natural balm (like Dr. Bronner’s Baby Unscented Organic Magic Balm), which I don’t only apply around my eyes, but also on my lips, lashes, brows and elbows. Truly recommend.”



“Clean your make-up brushes with a bar of soap, Rose Water is the BEST toner and a DIY egg white peel off mask is so great for instantly firm and bright skin.”



“For a wonderful body scrub, I mix baking soda with coconut oil.”



“Using eye drops to fix clumpy, dried up mascara.”



“I use aloe vera as brow gel!” 



“I mix Weleda Skin Food with an oil to loosen it up and your face drinks it! It will look incredible for hours!”
