When people think of social media, they think of selfies, and faces on Instagram tend to get more likes than photos without faces in them.

Think how successful you could be if your Instagram niche focuses on beautiful faces?

We’ve rounded up the best beauty hacks on Instagram to give you a head start.


MakeupShayla had the genius brainwave to add a couple of drops of face oil to your make-up for a beautiful facial glow.

Don’t overdo it when adding the drops to your palette, just a couple will add an instant, gorgeous glow.

It also stops your foundation from going flaky as it dries through the day.

She also suggests adding a couple of drops to your hands and rubbing all over your face before you add any foundation.

This will help your make-up last longer, as well as adding a glow.

If you’ve oiled up your foundation but you’ve discovered your concealer is running low, don’t fret, lifestyle blogger WheelsNoHeels has a fabulous hack.

Put the bottle in a bowl of hot water.

It loosens all the last little drops from the sides and you’ll be able to use it for a few more days.


When you find the perfect mascara, you want it to last forever.

Then it turns all dry, clumpy and flaky and you think its life has come to an end.

However, Alnasserlama comes to the rescue and tips us off that all you need to do is add 4-5 drops of saline solution (contact lens solution) and stir.

Voila, your mascara is as good as new.

She also tips us that if you run out of mascara completely, merely substitute with Vaseline.

Another tip for longer lashes, apply one coat of mascara and then dust some baby powder on top with a cotton swab, then swipe a second coat on top.

For those tired, bags under your eyes days, Deepica swears by blending red lipstick underneath concealer to hide the darkness.


Before adding any lipstick or gloss, you want your lips to be silky smooth.

There’s nothing less attractive than bright red lipstick smeared onto chapped or flaky skin.

JulesofWisdom suggests scrubbing your lips with a toothbrush to vanquish any flakes and leaves them smooth.

If your favorite lipstick has broken, whip out your lighter and melt them back together.

According to FabFitQueen, it works wonders.

Over seven million viewers tuned in to see FarahDhukai demonstrate her lip plumping hack using wasabi.

She took a small amount of wasabi, rubbed it over her lips, left for no more than one minute and wiped off with a damp cloth.

Follow with a lip moisturizer and you’ll be all set for the day.

Makeup_Maven suggests another natural lip hack, taking raw beets and rubbing them on your lips for a natural red lip stain, and using beet powder for blush.
