We love a good life hack at SHEmazing.

Little tips and tricks that make our lives just a little bit easier.

Well, we’ve got some great beauty hacks for you that we think everyone should know about.

1. Matching your foundation

We know that everyone always tests different foundation colours on their arm or hand but if you want to get a true match, try swatching the colours just underneath the jaw bone.

Never may you buy the wrong shade again.

2. Foundation shade a little bit off

So this might not be for everybody but it’s been tried and tested and it does work.

If you’re finding your foundation is looking a little pink or yellow on your skin then try adding a drop of food colouring.

Add yellow if you’re looking too pink and add a drop of red if you’re looking too yellow.

3. Tailored face masks

So the most common skin type to have is combination so why would you only use a mask for oily skin all over your face?

Yes, you’ll be looking like some kind of tribal warrior but you will get a whole lot more from your masks if you use different ones for different zones.

This also goes for primers, if you have an oily t-zone but are dry everywhere else you should be using two different products to get the best results.

4. Brighter eyes

So while white eyeliner was said to be the go-to product for brightening up your eyes, it can sometimes look quite obvious.

Nude eyeliner looks so much more natural and does a much better job.

There are some great nude eyeliners on the market so you should have no trouble in picking one up.

5. Cleaning your makeup brushes

So the new it-product when it comes to cleaning our brushes are these new brush cleansing palettes.

We love the idea but hate the price tag.

Try using a silicone pot holder instead which you can pick up in the supermarket for a fraction of the price.

6. Use tape for the perfect wing

An oldie but a goodie.

Place a little strip of tape under your eye at the angle you want your flick to be.

Then be as messy as you like with the security of the tape.

Then peal it back and reveal some truly beautiful peepers.

7. Get lipstick-ready, smooth lips

Give your lips a quick exfoliation with your electric toothbrush before bed

Getting rid of all the dead skin and cracks, you’ll be looking like Kylie Jenner in no time.

We never say no to a little bit of sparkle on our nails, and when it's as easy as this, we don't have to.

Korean salon owner Eun Kyung Park started something of an Instagram craze recently when she started using tiny pieces of holographic cellophane in her manicures.

The result? A sparkly/iridescent finish that gives the effect of a pane of shattered glass.

Design possibilities for this look are pretty endless – you can pile on the cellophane for a more layered look, or keep it simple, like this:

If your nail art budget won't stretch to a trip to Korea, fear not, as the process it VERY easy to recreate at home with nail foil or pink-toned cellophane.

1. Cut your cellophane into small shard-like triangles.

2. Paint your nails with a base coat as usual.

3. Then paint them with the colour of your choice – light colours work best for the iridescent effect.

4. With the polish still wet, use a tweezers to pick up the cellophane and place it on the nail in the pattern of your choice. Keeping the triangles vertical helps for the shattered-glass effect. You may need to work one nail at a time.

5. Allow your nails to dry, then paint over with two layers of top coat.

6. Enjoy the sparkle!

Gwyneth Paltrow is kind of like Marmite – you either love her or hate her.

While we have to admit she is a good actress, she can be particularly annoying, especially after her use of the words ‘conscious uncoupling’ to announce her marriage split – we refuse point blank to believe Chris Martin had anything to do with that.

And her latest confession has left us both more annoyed and flabbergasted. Annoyed because, well it’s Gwyneth and flabbergasted because she takes the whole ‘no pain no gain’ to the next level.

The mum-of-two has admitted that she goes through a particularly punishing beauty regime – Thermage laser treatment – to keep her gorgeous, youthful-looking skin, describing it as “like having your face smacked with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it”. Eek.

Talking to Hello! magazine, the Iron Man actress says the treatment, which involves plumping up the skin’s lower layers to smooth out the top using radio waves, is “non-invasive but it’s quite painful”.

Apparently it has the potential to burn your face so we might be giving it a miss.

Divergent actress Shailene Woodley admits to eating clay as part of her beauty regime. The former The Secret Life of the American Teenager star found out about the benefits of clay from a taxi driver and claims it to be “one of the best things you can put in your body”.

Talking to Into The Gloss, the 22-year-old said: “Clay is great for you because your body doesn’t absorb it, and it apparently provides a negative charge, so it bonds to negative isotopes. And, this is crazy: it also helps clean heavy metals out of your body.”

However, according to the winner of the MTV Movie Award for Best Breakthrough Performance, you need to be very careful about where you get your dirt from. She believes Mountain Rose Herbs is the best source but admits that Bentonite clay is pretty good too.

The American actress also believes that the best way to whiter teeth is to “swish coconut or sesame oil in your mouth when you wake up and spit it out.”

Might have a go at the teeth thing but not sure about eating clay…
