21 Beauty Hacks You’ve Probably Never Tried

Recommendations are the best. I won’t do anything without asking my friends/Facebook first. What book should I read next? Where should stay in Italy? What should I have for dinner? Should I get a tram or an Uber? God bless the internet. I haven’t wasted my time on a decision in ten years. I recently took to Facebook to get some beauty recommendations and I turned up some pretty decent tips.

2. Hayley – “I get my eyebrows professionally waxed and tinted. It’s quick, it totally changes the shape and tidiness of my face and it’s very cost effective.”

3. Carolyn – “I have three easy hair dos that I rotate through out the week. My favourite is the sock bun. Takes 2 mins and looks great!”

This week on Straight and Curly, Kelly and I talking about beauty hacks and this week our listeners are our contributors! I loved this episode – I learnt some awesome stuff I didn’t know before AND I got a chance to have a mega rant about the unfair expectation on women to wear makeup and how more men should wear eyeliner because it’s SUPER hot.

    men wearing eyeliner IS super hot. I am so glad this is being discussed out loud. The first time I realised was at a 40th birthday, gothic themed. A wall of men in eyeliner as I walked in. Like the entryway to heaven.

    Really enjoyed this episode! Especially the part about properly fitting clothes – so true about tight-fitting not always being the right fit – it’s okay to have slightly looser clothes!

    I recently had a Keratin smoothing treatment on my hair (it’s a massive frizz ball) and I’m soooo happy with the outcome. Most days I can go without using the hair straightener (something previously unheard of with my big fat wog hair) – it’s seriously a game changer and worth the cost.
