9. Use your perfume wisely.

Spraying perfume directly on yourself or your clothes is not ideal. Sure, you smell great leaving the house, but by the time you arrive at your destination, most of it has worn off. What you want to do is apply it directly to pulse points. It'll last much longer that way.

10. Create instantly soft and smooth skin with coconut oil.

Ditch all your other moisturizers and skin conditioners because coconut oil is better. The fatty acids work to naturally and safely rejuvenate skin. Plus, it can--and should--be used as a gentle makeup remover, too. Simply rub the coconut oil over the makeup with a soft pad to dissolve it.

11. Get longer-lasting lipstick in seconds.

Simply apply lipstick, place a clean tissue over top and recoat with translucent powder. Like so:

12. Brighten stained nails with lemon juice.

14. Ditch shaving cream for skin-soothing coconut oil.

Shaving creams have a host of potential skin irritants that can embellish redness and bumps after shaving. Stick with the all-natural option of using a little coconut oil instead.

15. Check foundation colors properly.

19. Never again guess where to place your blush.

All you need to do is roll a pen or liner right under your cheekbone. Now brush. Voila: a perfect application every single time!

20. Pump up the volume by applying dry shampoo before bed.

21. Get more life from your mascara.

Forgot to put the lid back on and can't quite afford another tube of plump-promising paste? Don't worry, you can make your current stock stretch a little longer by adding a few drops of saline.

22. Avoid upper-eye mascara smudges.
