Beauty Hacks Every College Girl Needs To Know

Every college girl needs to know these hacks. Whether you're strapped for time, cash or sleep there is something here for you.

1.Apple Cider Vinegar


This may sound like a weird one but apple cider vinegar is great for so many things. It can be used on sunburn, it helps acne scarring and can be used as part of your diet to help with reducing those hunger pangs.

2. Coconut Oil

This stuff is gold! There are so many ways to introduce this to your beauty regime. It can be used as a makeup remover, moisturiser, shaving cream, hair mask or lip balm. Who knew?!


3. Perfect Eyeliner

If you struggle with the perfect feline flick then this hack is for you. Use a small piece of sellotape to achieve the perfect flick. Genius.

4. Tired Eyes

So you got 3 hours sleep last night - nothing some white eyeliner can't fix. You might be dying inside but using some white eyeliner on the water line opens up the eye to make you look more awake and fresh!


5. Dry Mascara

If your fave mascara is drying up, just add some contact solution and you should be good to go.

6. Foundation That's A Shade Too Dark

We've all done it - bought the wrong shade of foundation. To avoid looking like the next addition to Geordie Shore, mix some moisturiser with the foundation until it matches your skin perfectly.


7. Multiuse Makeup

Your makeup can have many uses, so double your bronzer up as an eyeshadow or use some dark shadow to line your eye.

8. Dry Shampoo


If you're stuck for time before your 9am lecture, just throw some talc powder on your hair. This should soak up any greasiness and add some volume.

9. Long Lasting Perfume

To keep your perfume lasting all day and all night, add some vaseline to the areas you apply before spraying. This should keep you smelling amazing for longer.


10. Brows On Fleek

We all love good brows but sometimes there is just not enough time to sculpt and fill. If you need brows in a rush use a tinted brow gel for quick and easy natural brows.
