10 Pinterest Beauty Hacks That ACTUALLY Work!

10 Pinterest Beauty Hacks That ACTUALLY Work!

Trust me, I am a Pinterest pro

Let's face it, we have all attempted at least a few Pinterest hacks that had a disastrous end! For some reason when scrolling through Pinterest, some wild spark of inspiration hits me, and I suddenly feel like I can do anything.

Sometimes, even the twisted up-do hair style that has 24 steps seems totally plausible to me when I'm Pinterest crazed! Pinterest can be misleading, but can also lead you to some of the best discoveries! Here is a list of some of my favorite beauty hacks that return great results! I have tested all of these, and they actually work!!

1. Gelatin and Milk Blackhead Remover!

Ok, if you have bad blackheads then this is for you! This is the most simple and effective way to remove blackheads (plus it is super fun to remove after it dries)! Warning: this peel off remover has a terrible scent, but the results are definitely worth it! I also made my Dad do this on his blackheads, and wow, what a difference!

2. Quickest and Fullest Curls Ever!

I am so lazy when it comes to my hair, but this look takes almost no time and leaves my hair with tons of bounce! I have very long hair, so curling my hair used to take me forever until I found this! Just throw your hair into a high ponytail and curl small or large sections, then take your hair out of the ponytail and shake the curls out a bit! This is now the only way that I curl my hair. Absolutely life changing!

3. Nail Polish Mess, No Problem!

Did you drop the nail polish bottle on the floor and spill paint everywhere? Me too! The next time this happens just grab some sugar and pour it all over the accident. The nail polish will clump up, and then can be swept up effortlessly! I was so shocked that this actually worked!

4. Chic Newspaper Nails!

I have tried tons of nail ideas from Pinterest, including the marble nails, and ombré nails, but these newspaper nails actually work! This manicure is so easy to do, but looks so complex. All you need is a light nail color (base color), some newspaper clippings, and rubbing alcohol! This is easy enough for someone without much nail talent to do too.

5. Thicker Lashes in Only One Minute!

If you want your lashes to look instantly thicker and longer, then try this tip! Before applying mascara use a spare mascara wand with some translucent or baby powder, and coat the lashes with this! Then move on to your normal mascara routine, and BAM you have the thickest eyelashes ever!

6. Smooth Legs!

Yes, you heard me correctly, silky smooth legs that last for days! I was a skeptic of this hack at first, but now I am a believer! All you have to do is mix some sugar, olive oil, and lemon juice together and exfoliate your legs with it! Then you shave your legs, and repeat this process! This removes dead skin and makes all those little tiny hairs on your legs pop up so you can shave them! This silkiness lasts for days!

7. Cold Spoon Hack!

During allergy season my eyes and sometimes nose can get very swollen, and this trick reduces the effects of my allergies! When i wake up I put a spoon into the freezer and leave it there until i get ready! Then I will wash my face and moisturize, and I grab the cold spoon and press it down on my under eye area! This takes away most or all puffiness, and is great on dark circles too!

8. How to Fix a Crushed Powder Product!

Dropped your favorite blush? Cracked your go-to eyeshadow? No fear, rubbing alcohol is here to fix it! Just add a couple tablespoons and mix, next smooth over the top of the product with a spoon, then let the product dry overnight!

9. Coffee Filter Oil Blotting!

Oil blotting sheets can be expensive, but this hack does the same job for way less! Just use some regular coffee filters as oil blotting sheets, and it can work wonders!

10. Coconut Oil Hair Repair!

After your hair is damp from the shower, just work some coconut oil into the hair, focusing on the ends.Then, put your hair up and secure with a clip or shower cap. After about 20-30 minutes rinse it out, and enjoy silky hair! P.S.: This stuff can be difficult to rinse out, so if you have any trouble just try to shampoo it out! This can also be mixed with olive oil!

6 Colorful Hair Dye Trends You're Already Calling Your Salon For

*Calls hair stylist*

If you love colorful hair, and, like me, have spent hours admiring different colors and styles on Pinterest, then you need to see these hair dye trends. They are imaginative, beautiful, and very inspiring for your next trip to the salon.

1. Split Hair

This hair dye trend gives you the best of both worlds. You can have any combination of colors and not have to choose just one!

2. Sunset Hair

Sunset hair reminds me of Mardi Gras and King Cake. The colors are so pleasing and mesmerizing, and you won't have to look out the window for the sunset, you can just look in the mirror!

3. Underlayer Dye

This trend is for a more subtle look. You can dye just the underside of your hair so that the color can only be seen when in a ponytail or bun. Business on top, party underneath!

4. Dyed Bangs

This is another less extreme option. You can leave your hair its natural color and just dye your bangs. Or, like the picture, you can go all out and have two colors that compliment each other.

5. Colorful Highlights

This trend is just what it sounds like, and consists of one color as the base, with another brighter color as the highlights. Pink and yellow is my favorite combination for this trend.

6. Subtle Color

Another very understated and elegant option is to add some subtle hints of color throughout the hair. It almost blends in with the hair, but upon closer inspection opens up into layers of color.

Bruno Mars And Cardi B Brought Back The 90s With The "Finesse" Remix And We Are THRIVING

They're straight stuntin' and we are loving it.

Those who grew up in the 90s and miss this era terribly, and for those who didn't, but wish they could've because they love the music and fashion the 90s had to offer, must be in music heaven right now!

The reason is because of the recently released remix of the song "Finesse" by Bruno Mars featuring Cardi B! Bruno Mars is known for bringing back 90s sound, style, and dance in his songs and music videos. For example, in the music video of one of Mars' other popular songs, "That's What I Like," he is wearing early 90s men's R&B fashion.

The original version of "Finesse" was featured on Mars' "24K Magic" album in 2016. The original version is just as good and fun to listen to, but with Cardi B's fire rapping included in the remix makes this version the perfect 90s comeback song. Overall, it just beautifully brings back the New Jack Swing sound so many people loved during the late 80s through the 90s!

According to Billboard,"Finesse" began at No.13 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 30,000 sold in the week of Jan. 4th. The song additionally drew 8.7 million U.S. streams in the week ending Jan. 4th.

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that every time after hearing this song, I have to also listen to throwback New Jack Swing songs such as "Motownphilly" by Boyz II Men, "Poison" by Bell Biv DeVoe, "What About Your Friends" by TLC and more!

Not only is this song everything 90s, but so is the colorful music video. Cardi B is definitely "straight stuntin" in the video wearing ripped, high waisted denim shorts, a colorful bomber jacket, big hoop earrings, and striped tube socks while rocking a baseball cap backward to match.

Bruno Mars is also fashionably giving off 90s vibes by wearing a vertical striped shirt that, according to today.com, is reminiscent of Corey Matthews from "Boy Meets World", along with wearing denim jeans, and gold chains.

Along with everyone dressed in hot 90s fashion, most of the dance moves were also straight out of the 90s. In the music video, Bruno Mars, Cardi B, and the backup dancers incorporate 90s dance moves such as the Running Man, The Reebok, and from what I see, a little bit of the Roger Rabbit.

Let's also not ignore the music video's background! What a great way to pay homage to the 90s sketch comedy T.V. series, "In Living Color". I bet Damon and Keenan Wayans had deja vu after watching this music video.

This song is definitely on the top of my playlist and I hope more artists will create more like it!
