Folks! It’s Friday and it’s time for some brainy beauty hacks that will definitely change your beauty game. Or hopefully they will! Some of them also have links to posts where you can get even more information and all the details!
Coconut oil for shaving:
Some of us never shaves our legs, some of us do it after season and others always do it. If you shave your legs, but is constantly out of shaving gel, or wants a more organic alternative, the answer is coconut oil. Yes, I know, all I do is talking about it, but coconut oil works for everything! And it’s actually more than just shaving. It works as a moisturizer too. So apply a generous amount on your legs next time you’re about to shave. And remember to remove it with a towel, as coconut oil gets solid when it’s cold (= you don’t want it clogging the drains). Also, more hacks that will definitely convince you to invest in a jar of coconut oil:
- Here’s the benefits of coconut oil for the eyebrows
- DIY masks with coconut oil
- Strobing with coconut oil
Get your lipstick to last:
I’ve already written about it here. But here’s another trick for you that will do: use a lip pen. That’s right, use a lip pen the same way you use a primer. Apply the lip pen over your lips and then do the lipstick. It gives something for the lipstick to hold onto. The lip pen doesn’t necessarily need to be in a matching color as it’ll be covered however. If you want to create a ombre effect though, do one that’s a bit darker.
Voluminous hair overnight:
You know in all those Hollywood movies where people wake up with makeup and impeccable hair? Well sleeping with makeup is an obvious no-no, but waking up with gorgeous hair is a go-go! And no, you don’t have to spend hours curling it before bedtime. The only thing you have to do is braiding your hair loosely, put it up in a bun and sleep in it. In the morning you pull the hair out and voíla! It’s perhaps not perfect Hollywood hair, but it’s voluminous hair with some waves. Be sure to shake the hair lightly with your hands to get the ultimate volume. And do add salt spray or hairspray if you want them to last for the entire day!
Here’s the full post of this beauty hack. But ultimately the quick way of doing this is by applying a bright eyeliner on your waterline. A white one to match the color of the eyes or another bright color to make them pop. Easy, quick and foolproof for anyone that’s running out of time. Perhaps match it with a heavy liner over the lids? There’s just something with heavy eyes and fall!
The rubber band will be your friend! After you’ve done the basic layer, put a rubber band on the tip of the nail and paint the tip in whatever color you desire. I know that light pink and white are the most traditional ones to combine. As always though, do consider to go a step bolder and dothe nails in a crazy color combo. The 1980s are kind of trendy at least. Or why not do in a bold fall color combo? Like burgundy and pink? The amount of different nail polishes you have is the limit (lol).
Natural dry shampoo
We all know the dilemma, you’re running out of time and your hair hasn’t been washed in days. Alternatives? Wash your hair and deal with wet hair, or don’t wash it and walk around looking…not that fresh. But in late years, the answer to this problem has been dry shampoo. And as much as dry shampoo works and is quite the solution, it’s not always that one has a bottle at home. And let’s face it, dry shampoo is often full of weird ingredients which is not always favorable to apply on the hair. SO, another solution is natural dry shampoo. Which is cheap, easy and natural; flour or cocoa works perfectly fine as dry shampoo. As you want to neutralize the oily hair, dry ingredients will do! Depending on your hair/skin-color flour or cocoa is the solution. Just add less than a teaspoon on your scalp and comb it with a brush.
In July I wrote about different ways one can use the bronzer. The fall version of this one is using blush in different ways. Not only for the cheeks, but also as eyeshadow. The thing about makeup is that it often comes with ideas that: “this one should be used for eyebrows only”. But you know what? Makeup has several areas where it can apply. And using blush as eyeshadow is just one of them. You can also apply some on your lips, or why not contour with it, if its matte? Use your imagination folks!
And that were 7 beauty hacks that hopefully will help your life. Do you have a hack you’d like to add to the list? Leave a comment below!

It’s a great hack, love how efficient it is! Xx
I’ve used the braided hair trick before so I know that one works like a charm. I haven’t used the rubber band option though but it sounds really handy!

I am speechless with all these wonderful beauty hacks you shared! And I really enjoy learning always something new on your blog! If only I knew the coconut oil trick for shaving all these years before I did the laser! And thanks for reminding me that I really need to invest again in one of these! The one I am doing a lot is wearing bronzer as an eye shadow, it suits really great and looks natural and dewy!
Thanks for sharing your amazing tips once again, and hope you have a wonderful week!
I’m so happy that you found them useful babe, and so happpy that you enjoy reading The Fashion Folks! Coconut oil works for so much, so I’d definitely invest in a jar. It’s just that good! Xx
I’ve been using the lip pencil as a primer for a long time, and yes indeed, the lipstick lasts longer that way. It was really nice to find out about the natural dry shampoo, will definitely try that one and the coconut oil trick as well. Have a lovely day! x
It really works right? Love the hack with lip liner! Xx
I love lip pencils and I usually wear just lip pencils (when it’s a short while)

So good right?! Xx
Rubber band plus nails? GENIUS!
I know!! Love it too! Xx
These are such great tips, I love the one with the coconut oil – who would have thought?!
Right? It works so well though! Xx
I struggle with getting any lipstick to last for longer than 2-3 hours and so I’ll definitely give your tip a go – especially a darker pen so to create an ombre effect! Also, I’ve always really loved the two-tone nail trend, it can look so gorgeous (the black/blue combo you’ve shared a snap of is flawless!).
Do so, it really works! And the nail hack is genuis, love how well it works! Xx
I have used coconut oil and I love it so much!
It’s so good, love to do it too! Xx
I’ve never heard of a lip pen before but it sounds life changing!!
It works so well! Xx
Great hacks indeed. I love the coconut oil part especially.
Me too, love coconut oil! Xx
Love all beauty hacks, specially bigger eyes and manicure. Thanks for sharing.

These are such great tips! I’ve never heard of most of them before, and I’ve got to try the coconut oil, voluminous hair, and dry shampoo tricks. You’re always so helpful!

So happy to help love! The dry shampoo trick works so well, just “blend” it well! Thank you, that makes me so so happy to hear! Have a lovely weekend! Xx
I love all your beauty style hacks babe! My hair is definitely a hit or miss when I braid it and take it out the next day but generally it can give me a bit of curl and it really helps if I add mousse so it doesn’t go frizzy on me! I’ve never thought of coconut oil for shaving but I can imagine how soft your legs would feel after!
Same here! Sometimes it’s on point and other times, it’s doesn’t work as well. The legs feels amazing, just love to do so! Xx
I like the tip about braiding the hair loosely and putting git up in a bun. I have read about the tip before but none was properly explained so I’m going to try it tonight. The lack of volume is my biggest hair problem.

Thank you! Xx
Oh I love the idea on how to get the ombre effect on your lips, very cool.
It’s such a chic look, love that one both can make a statement but also keep it low key! Xx
just recently i started to remove my makeup with coconut oil and it does great!
It works so well for so many areas, love it! Xx
Great tips! I like the coconut oil idea!
It works so well, love it! Xx
Thanks for sharing! Coconut oil seems to work for everything. I have tried the lip liner one, and it does work so well. I usually use baby powder when needed for dry shampoo. Those nails look great!

Have never tried baby powder for dry shampoo but it sounds quite genius. Thank you for introducing me, have to try it! Xx
Loved these hacks gal <3 🙂
Thank you love, so happy you do! Xx
Getting your lipstick to last is a difficult thing, I always struggle with that! Thank you for these tips!
Raindrops of Sapphire
It works really well with a lip pen, also chic to create an ombre effect with them! Xx
Wow, these are all such great tips, all of which I’ll have to try, they’re so practical! I sometimes braid my hair before bed, but have never done it in a bun before, I’ll definitely be trying this out! Also, how genius is that rubber band hack!? It’s so funny because back in middle school, I used to do the perfect French mani that everyone would ask me where I went to get them done and I guess since I haven’t done it in years, I’m terrible at making them even and not clumpy! Thanks so much for sharing, I’ll definitely be pining this! I hope you have the best weekend ahead, gorgeous girlie!
Thank you love, I hope you’ll find them helpful and thank you for the pin! You must have been crazy good lady! I still struggle to paint my nails as they are haha, so being able to pull off french manicure at such a young age: hands down for you! Xx
Oh my god, thank you so much for these tips. I did not know about the coconut oil, I love the idea!
