  • These are great, I hadn’t even heard of most of them!


  • Some great hacks! I’m just not that into makeup!


  • these are brilliant! Love the spoon ones!


  • Some of these are pretty quirky. Not sure I’ll be trying them. I guess I’m just not that into makeup.


  • I wonder if number 8 actually works?!


  • By reading this post, I realised how little make-up I use.


  • Lol! I like the first hashtag tip!


  • Could luck finding a Cotton Tshirt. Most now have synthetic fibre in them. Make sure you don’t get any of these substances or equipment you are using in your eyes. In that respect face painting can be dangerous too.


  • I really like the band aid nail polish dot one!


  • Wow, I love all of these. Particularly the smoky eyes! Definitely giving that one a try.


  • great tips.


  • Some nice different tips ! But if these these are going to change my life ?? Don’t think so, lol ! There was a time in my life I was a slave to make-up, in such a way I didn’t feel good without it. Now I freed myself from that burden I feel much happier with myself and how I look, that truly changed my life :) .


  • Wow I am impressed with not 10 but 20 great tips. Thank you Jessica.


  • Great tips – and time saving as well many of them.


  • Why use a bandaid when you can use a wrap? I’m loving my Jamberry wraps!!! For a girl who’s never really looked after her hands and nails I’m really enjoying the variety and fun I’m having choosing my manis!
