$50 bucks! That’s how much I just spend restocking my makeup bag! And I didn’t even get all that much. Just four or five things that I’d run out of. Yikes! We may rant and rave about it but makeup is something we all use to varying degrees. My sister only wears bronzer and mascara, I wear a little bit of everything, and one of my best friends is a makeup artist and her face is a lovely painted canvas. Whether you like makeup, tolerate it, or can’t bare to be in the same room as a vial of rouge, you have to agree that it has transformative powers. Diply has the pictures to prove it! The before and after pic features here show you what makeup really can do!

You don’t need makeup to look beautiful, you are already beautiful! But makeup helps accent features, hide flaws that you find annoying, and can give you a ‘different’ look. If a picture is worth a thousand words – then this is one wordy roundup on beauty. 51 pictures would be 51,000 words! Love all these looks but not sure which one/ones are right for you? Here’s some help.

Diply: 20 Beauty Hacks You Wish You knew This Morning


There are so many professions out there who have their own versions of a life hack. One profession often overlooked when looking for those little tricks of the trade are in medicine, nurses, certified nursing assistants, and emergency medical technicians. These are the guys you call upon when a Band Aid won’t fix the problem. I think, they may be good people to take advice from. That’s why this roundup from Little Things is worth paying attention to!

These are some great tips! Just take a look at them. In your purse you have the best means to stop a nosebleed, tampons, or stop the bleeding on a bad cut, pads. Vaseline or shaving cream will take up a dried blood stain or a sticky mess. Coffee grounds will take the odor out of any room. Menthol or a minty toothpaste will help mask smells while you clean up a nasty stinky mess. Who knew? I love hacks from people who have experience. Like the ones from Grandma. Age and experience.

Oh, how badly I have been waiting for this info! Oil stains are my enemy. Set in stains are my absolute laundry nemesis! How is it that people (my husband) don’t think about pre-treating stains? Don’t they know how impossible it is to get them out after they have been washed? Needless to say, people in my family wear clothing that have tiny stains. Until now that is!

What do you need? Liquid dish soap, WD-40, Baking Soda, a toothbrush (one you won’t be using anymore), Q-tips, and a piece of cardboard. Guess what? I have all of those things! I also have my favorite blue sweatshirt that has a butter stain on it. Perfect! I can try this out first hand and let you know how it works.

The Cleaning Institute has some other tips on stain removal that you need to bookmark for the next laundry day. Their stain removal chart has info for removing everything from grass to gravy stains. Lol. There is even some information on how to get typewriter correction fluid out of clothes. I’m thinking that one might not be needed that much anymore. Haha!

There are so many things about clothing that must be just so in order to look as I want them to. I am pretty fussy about how I look. Whether I need to look professional or casual, lazy day at home or a night out on a date with my husband or a friend, I want to look my best. It is the little things that matter. That’s why fashion hacks are the best! Maybe you aren’t as fussy about your clothing as I am. Wrinkles drive me crazy. The weird fold in the collar of my shirt that flips it up like a flag.

The string on my favorite hoody must stay in place, otherwise it just looks weird or off balance. Some necklaces just look weird with particular necklines. My hem line needs to be the right length, so I don’t trip over it or show too much ankle (high-waters). Speaking of ankles, please, everyone wear matching socks! If you are anywhere near as particular as I am, these 16 very useful little life hacks will help you keep looking your best. Here are 24 other fashion hacks that every woman needs to know.
