Quick beauty tip #5 – Puffy eyes

Keep them pressed for 5 minutes and your eyes should be less puffy. In addition to this, use a concealer, eyelashes curler, voluminous mascara and apply a nude or white eye pencil on your waterline to make your eyes look more open and awake.
Quick beauty tip #6 – Hair without volume and split ends
You haven’t visited your hairdresser for quite a while and you have split ends? A simple trick to make the split ends less visible and to give more volume to your hair is to curl your hair. You can use hair curlers, hair straightener or curling iron or wand. Curled hair looks a few inches shorter, it hides the split ends and gives the hair some volume.
Quick beauty tip #7 – Frizzy eyebrows or frizzy hair
If you want your face to look perfect every day, with or without makeup, you need to keep your eyebrows in good shape. If they are messy and they don’t want to stay in one place, take a little hair gel on a spoolie and fix them. If you don’t like that ‘wet’ effect that hair gel gives, you can try spraying a little hair spray on a spoolie and then fix them.
Wild fizzy hair can’t be easily maintained. If you have this problem, moisten your hands with water and put a little moisturizing lotion or cream on them. Warm the product well with your palms and run your fingers through your hair. For an even better effect, after you applied the lotion or cream, twist your hair, gather it into a bun, leave it for 10 minutes and then let it loose.
