8 Strange Tips That Can Actually Help You Become More Beautiful

Beauty is subjective and comes in all shapes and sizes. While it’s often said that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder, a little vanity never hurts, does it? However, not everyone wants to spend thousands on products that may or may not enhance their natural beauty, and the vast amount of DIY beauty knowledge on the internet can be overwhelming to sift through and determine what actually works.

To help you navigate this task, we scoured the internet to find some home remedies and beauty hacks. After spending a few hours online, we discovered a few weird but effective beauty hacks that can actually deliver the results you want. Curious to find out more? Keep reading.

1. Beer Can Help You Get Healthier Hair

Beer contains ingredients like malt, yeast, and hops, which are rich in vitamins that can nourish your hair. If you’re searching for an at-home remedy for healthy hair, look no further than beer. You can use it as a conditioning rinse. To do this, simply dilute beer with water in a 1:1 ratio, and then apply the mixture to your hair after shampooing as a conditioner. If you have color-treated hair, it’s best to use a light beer to avoid potential staining.

2. Use Baby Powder To Get Dramatic Eyelashes

Need some drama for your lashes without the high cost of false eyelashes? Try this hack instead. First, apply a layer of mascara to your eyelashes as you normally would. Then, using an earbud, lightly dust some baby powder onto your lashes. Finally, follow up with another coat of mascara. This simple trick will give you the appearance of voluminous, fake-looking lashes without the hefty price tag.

3. Your Concealer Can Create The Effect Of Plump Lips

Do you love the look of dark lipsticks but avoid wearing them because you have thin lips? This hack is just what you need. Start by taking your concealer and tracing the outline of your lips with it. This will help blur your natural lip line. Next, take a bright-colored lip liner and draw a new contour just outside your natural lip line, creating the appearance of fuller lips. However, be careful not to draw the new contour too far from your natural lip line.

Once you’ve created this slightly overdrawn lip line with the lip liner, you can apply your dark lipstick as desired, and your lips will appear plumper and more luscious.

4. Use Activated Charcoal To Get Whiter Teeth

Purchase some activated charcoal tablets or powder. If using tablets, crush a few and add a few drops of water to create a paste. If using powder, take about one teaspoon and mix it with water, ensuring there are no lumps.

Using a toothbrush, apply this charcoal paste to your teeth and gently brush. This treatment acts as a natural whitening agent but should not be used daily. Limit its use to once or twice a month.

The activated charcoal will help remove stains and discoloration from your teeth, leaving you with a brighter smile. Just be sure not to overdo it, as excessive use can potentially damage your enamel.

5. Red Lipstick Can Work As The Perfect Concealer For Dark Circles

Struggling to conceal those dark under-eye shadows? Give this beauty hack a try. First, apply red lipstick to the arched areas beneath your eyes and blend it out. Next, layer on some concealer over the red lipstick, blending it well to allow the concealer to pick up the red tint. Apply another layer of concealer over the first, following the same blending process. Finally, set everything in place with a dusting of translucent powder. Voila! Those pesky under-eye shadows should now be invisible.

The red lipstick serves as a color-correcting base that helps neutralize and mask the purple-blue tones of under-eye discoloration. The concealer then covers it all up seamlessly. With some blending and setting powder, you’re left with a bright, refreshed under-eye area.

6. Use A Fork To Contour Your Nose Perfectly

Are you unhappy with the shape of your nose and desire a more defined, sculpted look? Rather than opting for expensive and invasive cosmetic surgery, consider contouring as a more affordable and safer alternative. To do it correctly, we suggest using a fork as demonstrated in the picture above. Simply highlight the bridge of your nose with a lighter shade, and then use a darker shade to contour the sides of your nose (the “wings”). This technique creates the illusion of a longer, more shapely nose.

Contouring with makeup allows you to subtly reshape and enhance the appearance of your nose without any permanent or drastic measures. By strategically applying lighter and darker shades with the unique fork technique, you can temporarily sculpt your desired nose shape and achieve a more refined look.

7. Running Low On Eyeliner? Colored Pencils Can Do The Trick

Are you someone who prefers rocking bold, colored eyeliner but finds yourself without any? No worries, there’s a simple trick. Take some colored pencils and place them in a glass filled with hot water. Let them soak for a couple of minutes. Once done, remove the pencils and use them as makeshift eyeliners. Line your lids with the colored pencils to create a dramatic summer eye look.

8. Lip Balm Can Make For The Perfect Highlighter

Looking to achieve a highlighted effect without splurging on concealer, bronzer, and highlighter? We’ve got a neat trick for you. While shimmery eyeshadows can work for highlighting, your trusty lip balm can also do the job. Instead of using eyeshadows, simply apply your lip balm to the areas you want to highlight. It’ll give you a softer, dewy glow.
