When life gives you trouble, you often turn out to the Internet to seek help for repairing the damage you’ve made. But, let’s be honest, the Internet is full of ideas that can’t be realized in real life. This is especially true for beauty hacks, as every person is different. The frustration of realizing that the beauty hack does not work for you is terrible for many people. Luckily, there are people who try these hacks out and share them with the world. And most of the time, they do work. It turns out that the weirder the beauty hack, the more efficient it is. Here are some examples of beauty tips that sound weird, but are definitely worth risking.
1. Root fix
Using a q-tip or brush, dab some eye shadow to your exposed roots for a quick on-the-go fix when you haven’t had time to dye your hair yet. You hair will be thankful.

3. Baby powder is a queen!

4. Hot and cold
Heating up your eyeliner will make it glide on like liquid. Freezing it will help keep bits from flaking as you apply it. What an awesome thing to know!

6. Beer for your hair
Other than the fact that your hair might smell a little bit like beer, this alcoholic beverage strips away all the buildup in your hair and leaves it super soft. Massage a cup of beer into your damp and clean hair, and leave it for five minutes. Then, rinse!
7. Olive oil for removing makeup
Matte lipstick and smudge-proof eyeliners are hard to get off your skin. Just massage olive oil over your lips and lids and say goodbye to makeup!
