Beauty hacks can be such life-savers. Knowing just a few will not only save a lot of your time, but can also make you look gorgeous, effortlessly! Here are three beauty hacks every It Girl must know.

  1. Illuminator is better than coffee
    It Girl is very busy! Her time is valuable and limited, and she needs to consult her calendar frequently to schedule appointments. While maintaining her hectic lifestyle, she keeps herself looking good! Here’s a simple tip to look fresh and conceal those dark circles well: Apply a blendable illuminator under the eyes to brighten your overall appearance and highlight your eye-makeup. Trust me, it works better than a cup of coffee for a perk-me-up!
  2. Make your own lip scrub
    It Girls know how to take care of themselves, and they do it through lip service. Have a weekly pampering treat for your precious smackers by mixing a tablespoon of brown sugar with honey (enough for them to stick) and rubbing the scrub on vigorously enough to loosen the dead skin. Let it sit for a minute or so, before wiping it off with a clean, damp cloth. Apply moisturising lip balm after the quick DIY treatment. You will be amazed at how beautiful and plumb your lip colour will look afterwards!
  3. The best blister prevention is on your vanity table
    We all love our high heels, which add numbers to both our height and style points. But blisters are not funny and can totally ruin our day! To prevent them, rub clear deodorant on your heels or anywhere your shoes rub to stop friction. Now, nothing can stop you from running towards your dreams!

My favourite Za product is… the Vibrant Moist Lipstick because it has 19 gorgeous shades for every occasion, and the vibrant colours and moisture last for hours. It is my everyday lipstick as I love the convenient packaging for quick and fuss-free touch-ups.
