Castor Oil on Eyelashes and Eyebrows  

Help your eyebrows and eyelashes to grow thick and luxurious with this inexpensive beauty hack. With a spoolie, apply a small amount of castor oil and allow to soak in over a few hours or even overnight. 

Eyeshadow Liner Hack


This is not only a beauty hack but also a space saver in your makeup bag when traveling! If you forget your eyeliner in your makeup bag, try mixing a small amount of concealer with a black eyeshadow and use a small brush to create a wing (or any other eyeliner shape you prefer). 

Coconut Oil Makeup Remover 


Go natural by using a small amount of coconut oil to remove makeup, cleansing balm style. Warm up the solid balm in your fingers and as it melts into a beautiful oil, massage gently into skin to remove makeup and impurities. 

Nail Polish Tights Hack


Now this one is an oldie but a Goldie. In case you didn’t know, you can actually use a clear polish to stop a ladder in your tights from growing further until you have time to swap them out for a fresh pair. A quick fix to keep you dancing through the night!

Loose Powder Dry Shampoo Hack


If you’re in a pinch and don’t have time to wash your hair, let’s hope you have some loose powder around! Since dry shampoo is essentially an aerosol powder, you can use a clean makeup brush and apply the powder to your roots and gently rub in to absorb excess oils.


Say goodbye to a long list of expensive beauty products and hello to a wallet-friendly collection of products. These budget tips showcase how versatile household items can be, encouraging you to be resourceful and creative with what you have at home.
