    The quick trick to: Getting rid of glitter nail polish

    Glitter nail polish is super adorbs, but when it’s time for a new mani, it can be so hard to take off. Apply a layer of glue to your bare nail before adding a glitter polish. When you’re ready to change your polish, it will just peel off! Magic.

    The quick trick to: Faking dry shampoo

    Next time you wake up late for school and are all out of dry shampoo, try baby powder. Sprinkle a tiny amount onto your roots to soak up the extra oil. Make sure you brush out your hair to eliminate any residue.

    The quick trick to: Making the most of your makeup bag

    One of our favorite time- and space-saving tricks is to use the same product for your lips and your cheeks! After you apply your favorite lipstick, dab a bit on the apples of your cheeks and blend with your fingers.

    The quick trick to: Removing waterproof mascara

    Do you love the way your waterproof mascara lasts all day, but dread taking it off? Try adding a layer of regular mascara first. This coats your lashes, easing the removal process.

    The quick trick to: Adding length to your pony

    Separate your hair into two sections, top and bottom. Tie the top section (from the bottom of your ears up) on the top of your head, where you’d place a high pony. Use a small rubber band to tie the bottom section in a pony on the back of your head. Add a little tease to the tail and a few loose curls to disguise the separate sections, and you’ve instantly got one long pony!
