8 Secret Beauty Tricks


Whether it's the lips, the nails or the hair: we women always strive to look perfect down to the smallest detail! But this goal is not always so easy to achieve. Often we lack the time, the budget is too small or we simply have no desire! All this looks very familiar to us! But there are tricks that do not require this effort!

We'll give you 8 simple beauty tricks you've certainly never seen before!

8 Secret Beauty Tricks


The easiest trick for perfect eyebrows

A young woman has become an internet hit with only one product and one brush! She's not a professional at all - she just taught herself a trick that makes her eyebrows look perfect!

For her eyebrows she uses an eyebrow angel and a pointed eyebrow brush. First, a blob of eyebrow gel is applied to a flat surface. From there she takes up some paint with the brush. Then she draws her eyebrows with fine strokes. This makes the look look super natural and the eyebrows do not stick, as the product is not applied directly to the eyebrows, but first to a flat surface!

How to blow-dry your hair properly

Do you hold the hair dryer and brush in one hand and blow-dry your hair down? You should not get used to that in the future, because the hair is flattened and there is no trace of the volume.

In the future, you should blow-dry the hairline from above. If you work your way down further, you should blow dry the hair strands horizontally with a brush or upwards away from your head! With this trick your hair gets voluminous and gets movement in the lengths.

Mascara in travel size

Mascara belongs to the basic equipment of every woman and is the simplest way to a charming look. But unfortunately, our mascara quickly loses quality. Most of the vials have a size of 6 to 10 ml. But every time we open the bottle, air enters, which dries out the mascara.

In the future, just check if your favourite mascara is also available in smaller travel sizes! The price difference won't be much, but you will have used up the mascara before it dries up and becomes unusable!

You can do this if your product is not in the travel size:

So your mascara lasts longer

Unfortunately, not all varieties are available in the smaller travel size. In this case it is important that as little air as possible enters the vial. Be careful not to move the brush up and down in the cover. As a result, the air is virtually pumped in and the product dries out particularly quickly.

Instead, slowly insert the brush and turn it in one direction. This way you can take in enough product without reducing the quality!

Pimple alarm

It is always a mystery to us: Pimples always appear exactly when we least need them. But under no circumstances should you try to express it in such a situation!

Instead, dip a cotton pad in eye drops for dry eyes and put it in the freezer for a few minutes. Then press the cotton pad against the pimple. After about 20 minutes the blood vessels contract and there is no trace of redness!

Be careful with the powder

Many women swear by a light powder to create a flawless yet natural look. However, this can quickly take effect! Rather rely on liquid textures. These bond better with the skin. A real miracle cure is a cream rouge! You can wear them not only on your cheeks but also on your lips!

Ice cold eyeliner

As a rule, we attach great importance to eye make-up. But when it comes to the subject of "eyeliners", there is a divide. Although we all agree that our eyes stand out particularly after application, the application itself is a real pain for most of us.

However, this could change in the future. Put your eyeliner in the freezer for 15 minutes before use. It does not crumble and it is much easier to apply.

Correct care for the legs

Our legs carry us through life. For this reason, we should not neglect them in our care!

You can get beautiful, shiny legs by adding a few drops of baby oil to your usual body lotion. The mixture gives a perfect shine! However, you should mix the two products very well so that they do not become oily when applied.

How to Make French Toast Without Eggs But With Banana and Coconut


Who invented it?

Perhaps the Swiss, who call it "Fotzelschnitte"?
Or the Americans, for whom a brunch without "French toast" would be inconceivable?
It could have been the Germans. "Poor knights," they say.
Corn not, the French will object, le "Pain Perdu" we have invented!
The Brazilians were probably not, although the name "Rabanada" promises delicious.
Or was it the Laotians with their "Bombay Toast"?

It is first mentioned in texts from the Middle Ages. Formerly a popular fasting dish, later cried out as poor people's food. Today French toast is usually served for breakfast or as a sweet z'night. What has never changed, however, are the basic ingredients. Eggs, milk and stale bread. For vegan varieties, vegetable milk is often mixed with flour, starch or tofu as an egg substitute. Not bad, but this version with banana and coconut flakes beats everything.

How to Make French Toast Without Eggs But With Banana and Coconut



For 2 persons:

  • 1/2 baguette from the day before
  • 1 large banana, almost overripe
  • 200 ml milk or coconut milk
  • 2 pinches of salt
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • about 4 tbsp coconut flakes
  • Alsan and rapeseed oil for frying


Cut the baguette into thumb-thick slices. Peel the banana, cut into small pieces and puree together with milk and salt. Whisk the starch with part of the banana milk without lumps, then mix everything together. Place baguette slices side by side in a casserole dish and pour the banana milk over them.

Soak for ten minutes, then turn the slices and let them steep for another 5-10 minutes. Heat Alsan and rapeseed oil in equal parts in a large pan. Sprinkle the coconut flakes on both sides of the baguette slices. Fry on each side over medium heat until golden brown. Serve with speculoosugar, cinnamon-sugar, maple syrup or muscat syrup.

Caramel version: If the slices are still light golden, sprinkle with sugar in the pan. Turn around and fry briefly until it smells wonderful. Sprinkle the second side with sugar and caramelize as well.

Red Pepper and Spring Onion Hummus Recipe


Hummus is one of the foods I love to eat when “being good” and I find that when you make your own you get more out of it and can mess about with the flavors to have whatever you like or fancy.

This particular recipe is one of my favorites because I love peppers and spring onions on their own, so to be able to incorporate it into hummus and it taste good was ideal. It is so quick to whiz up and is a great base for a main dish or even just as a side as a dip, hummus is so versatile and I love making my own.

Red Pepper and Spring Onion Hummus Recipe


Hope you enjoy as much as I do!

  • Pepper
  • Garlic salt

I like to have this with another little drizzle of olive oil on the top, some smoked paprika sprinkled on top and tortilla chips to dip…yum!!
