I’ve benefited so much from knowing these things. But first off, this is my last weekend giveaway. If this video gets to 200,000 likes, I’ll do another one next month. For now, this is my last one. And the winner of the MacBook Air is Shenae Johnson! Congratulations! Here’s one of your YouTube comments. Yeah, I’m talking about that Shenae Johnson. You know what’s really unfortunate about this entire situation is that I didn’t realize that my makeup desk is kind of pretty until after I filmed the entire videos. For some reason, I filmed the rest of this video in front of a green screen. Good job, Rachel. Let’s make it my makeup desk again. Let’s get on with the weird beauty life hacks every girl should know. OK, if you have the world’s worst dark circles, this life hack is to use red lipstick as a concealer primer. And I saw this picture online.

Shout out to this chick over here. She invented the trick. And I tried it out to see if it’s legitimate. I wore it today. I’m going to show you one side just putting on plain concealer and then one side doing this trick. Ready? Don’t put a lot. Blend it with your fingers to make sure there’s no excess. Now watch this. Which dark circle is more even? The one that I just put regular concealer on, or the one that I put the red under? Another makeup life hack. I did a video on this a while ago. So this trick basically makes your eyelashes longer when you put on mascara. That’s regular mascara. Now this life hack entails cotton balls. You take a single cotton ball. The trick is, you just take this brush and pick up some cotton ball fibers and put it in between every single coat of mascara you put.

Oh! The story of my life! Well, that dot’s gonna be there the rest of my life. And then take this, add another coat. And then do it again. If you feel cotton ball get into your eye, just get it out. I don’t think it could be good to have legitimate anything in your eye for too long. Before, after. I also made a video about this three years ago. But that was three years ago. This is for if you’re ever in a rush and you want to wear eyeshadow. You can make the eyeshadow the day before. Do you see these foam sheets? You can get them from Michael’s. But basically take a foam sheet like this one. Just cut two pieces that are shaped like an eye out of the foam sheet and then take some water, brush the water over it. Take some pigment eyeshadow, paint it wherever you want the color to be onto the foam sheet. And then let it dry and then you could save a bunch of these and just use them the next day. I decided to make two. Here’s a smoky eye and here’s a brown smoky eye.

It is always important to look good no matter what you are doing. Use the new Avon Catalog to find amazing savings on makeup and more.

Prime those lids first. Oh my god! They’re both for the same eye. A round of applause for me! I’m gonna give you guys five seconds to choose which one I’m gonna use. And if you’re right, you win! Comment down below if you win. Ready? I’m gonna do this one. Literally press it on. And then all you need to do is blend it. Press off. Oh! And now blending. Eyeshadow. If every time you tweeze your eyebrows or your mustache or wherever you tweeze, it hurts really badly, take some Baby Orajel. It’s for teething pain. But Orajel basically numbs it. Doesn’t hurt your skin or anything. Let it chill for a minute, and then wipe it away. And tweeze without feeling any pain. If you have the problem where your lips are always chapped, no matter how much water I drink, take a green tea bag and then wet it in the sink. Squeeze out any excess water. Take the bag and put it on your lips for about five minutes and they will not be chapped. I don’t know why this works, but it does.

This next trick is how to get a nice nail design easily. Just take the nail polish you want and draw whatever design you want on a sandwich bag, and then set it aside to let it dry. Once it’s dry, place it on your nail and push it really hard. The nail design will just peel off when you peel the sandwich bag off. And then bam, heart nail design! If you have dark armpits– I did. I saw a YouTube video two years ago on how to get rid of dark underarms from [? Andrew’s ?] Choice, and I never tried the method ’cause I didn’t think it would work. Two weeks ago, I started using it and now my armpits are pretty much white.

Take a potato. A potato– yeah. You could cut in half, but I literally usually just go like this. Rub it on your armpit. It’s OK. No one’s going to judge you if they can’t see you doing it. This next life hack is so ridiculous. But if you’re clumsy and get bruises all the time everywhere– here’s a bruise right here. I don’t even know what happened. Somehow it’s somewhere that people would see and you don’t want to be there. Put some mouthwash on a cotton ball. Yeah, I said mouthwash. This is my bruise. Where did it go? If your hair has refused to retain volume. This is my hair natural. Notice how up here it is stuck to my head. You guys already know this ’cause of my prom life hacks Video. But white powder can be used as dry shampoo. And dry shampoo usually makes my hair actually flatter for some reason. Most people it’s the opposite. I’ll do it on this side. Just play around with it. Legitimately nothing in the world gives me volume except for this. So I hope you guys enjoyed this video. If you missed my previous two videos, click those down below.
