7. Patience is overrated
When you don’t have time to wait for your nail polish to set, use ice-cold water to harden it in a matter of seconds.
What can you use to blend out your foundation? Hmmm, no, not a Beauty Blender… I know! How about a kitchen sponge? Yes, its soft side will work perfectly for this purpose!

9. You’re hired!
Tired of washing your makeup brushes? Hire someone to do it for you! Although, for $50 you could buy yourself several new sets of brushes…

10. Why make it simple when it can be complicated?
Why use a curling wand when you can use a pencil and a hair straightener? The pencil method is definitely more complex, time-consuming, and maybe even bad for your hair!
