Tablelands locals, your life is about to get a whole lot easier!

Are you always spending money on a range of cosmetic products and treatments? Stop! Before you continue splashing out your cash on overpriced products that have minimal effect, you might want to consider taking a look at some of these life-changing DIY beauty hacks. From using coffee grinds as a body scrub to giving yourself nail art with a band-aid, making yourself look beautiful has never been so easy! We've provided a range of cosmetic tips using everyday household items, that'll make your beauty routine fast and affordable.

Band-Aid nail art

o

The little holes found on Band-Aids can be used to make beautifully simple polka dot nail art. Just paint a base coat on your nails, wait for the to nail polish to dry and press the Band-Aid onto your nail (the part with the holes). Paint a contrasting colour over the Band-Aid for the perfectly-spaced pattern finish.


Baby powder eyelash extensions

o

Forget about false eyelash extensions! Apply one coat of your mascara, then grab a cotton bud and dust baby powder over your eyelashes. Finish with one more coat of mascara and the baby powder will stick to your lashes, making them perfectly long without the need for messy falsies.


Credit card for mascara shield

d

Are you sick of getting mascara all over your face? Simply grab a credit card, hold it under your lashes and go lather them with your mascara. Your lashes will get a healthy coat and the leftover mascara will be left on the credit card instead of your face, it’s a win win—just make sure you don’t cover your signature with mascara!


Coffee body scrub

o

If you don’t want to splash out on expensive exfoliating lotions, grab a few coffee grinds from the kitchen and mix them with whatever body wash you normally use. Coffee grinds are a natural exfoliant and will help get rid of that dead skin, while making your skin glow and smell amazing!


Washable glue for the perfect manicure

]

If you’re constantly getting paint all over your cuticles when you reapply your nail polish, we’ve got the solution for you! Simply apply a washable glue to your cuticles before you start, and any stray polish can be peeled off after you’re done!


Tame frizz with a toothbrush

l

We all know just how annoying those wispy little hairs around your face can be. Just grab a toothbrush you don’t need, put a little hairspray on the bristles and brush back any strays, for a more healthy frizz-free look.
