The internet is full of life hack articles and videos and some of them can really make your life easier, but there are also those that don’t work as expected. To save you some time and trouble, we would like to present you 11 life hacks that you’d better forget about.
Plump your lips with a shot glass.
Girls always want fuller lips, but a shot glass is not the best way to do it. Best case scenario, you end up with red and swollen lips. Worst case, you get bruises makeup can’t cover.
Lipstick helps to conceal dark circles under the eyes.
No. You will only be left with red stains under your eyes.
It is possible to create good flicks with the help of a thread.
You need more skill to do it this way than to simply use the eyeliner applicator.
Use a fork for straight and symmetrical nose contouring.
Though a fork may help you get straight lines, is that what you really want? Your nose will look unnatural.
Use simple colored pencils as eyeliners.
Keeping a pencil in hot water will make it possible to draw on the skin. Except it will fall apart as soon as it dries.
Beetroot instead of blusher.
Just… why? The beetroot will give you some color, but you won’t be able to blend it or take it off.
You can simply and quickly create a scrub with shaving foam.
The shaving foam + sugar is not a good scrub. It simply doesn’t work.
Lemon juice helps to whiten your nails.
Nope. Nothing happened. Nails didn’t change color.
Loose powder can be substituted by flour.
Though they look the same, don’t think you can use flour instead of the loose powder. You’ll just get the flour all over your face and clothes but miss the actual effect.
Another way to draw straight flicks is with the help of a credit card.
Despite the logic behind it, more straight doesn’t always mean better. Instead, go practice your hand the “normal” way.
In order to create a straight browline, use adhesive tape.
If you want to look mad all the time, go ahead, apply this tip.
