5 Insider Beauty secrets

1. Scotch Tape Eye Stencil 
Did you ever think to add this office staple to your makeup bag? This will help guide you when applying eye liner and shadows, especially if you’re going for a more daring look such as the “cat eye”. It will also help you achieve an even and balanced look for both eyes. You could also use a business card, but I like scotch tape better because I can place it ,make sure the angle is correct on both eyes and then put shadow on. 
2. Tight-lining
What is tight-lining? The first time I had ever seen this trick , I was in awed of its simplicity and effortless effect. It’s a way of applying your liner right in between your lashes. This is a great way to appear as though you’re not wearing any makeup at all, yet adding a little bit of color and definition to your eyes, and making the base of your lashes appear thicker.
3. Business Card trick
When applying mascara, hold a business card behind your lashes and apply it going in a back and forth motion starting at the roots. You can really coat every lash this way and very quickly!
4. The Line 
I'm always checking my eye makeup in case my eyeliner isn't in it’s original place. Certain eyeliners are more prone to do this, especially those that aren't water proof.To keep your liner behaving, sweep loose or pressed powder right under the eye liner on your bottom lid. It creates somewhat of a barrier, preventing your eyeliner from traveling downwards.
5. Mayo Hair Treatment
Yup, That's right. Mayo Hair treatment! It's awesome for your hair! It adds moisture and makes it extra shiny. So, go into your refrigerator and get your Mayonnaise out. Scoop out 2-3 Tbsp and  Apply the mayonnaise liberally to the scalp rubbing it in with the fingertips. Apply more mayonnaise along the length of the hair until all of the hair is coated.
Wrap a plastic bag around the hair, being careful to keep the bag away from the face. The bag will trap the heat from your head allowing the mayonnaise hair treatment to work deep down.Leave the mayonnaise on for 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly. your hair. Your hair will thank you once its done!
