We’ve all had one of those days when our hair tie breaks, our nail polish chips, or we wakeup with puffy eyes.

And because we know you’re too busy running the world to spend any more time on vanity than you’ve already scheduled, we’ve rounded up 7 of our go-to Galore Girl life hacks for when things with your manicure, makeup, and overall face go array. Check them out below.
1. Makeup Remover
Situation: Although you weren’t planning on it, you’ve decided to spend the night at a dude’s house after a successful first date. Only, you have a ton of eyeliner on and his pillowcases are white.
Life Hack: Take a moment in the restroom and search his cabinets for body lotion, then use it to remove your makeup. It works wonders on even the toughest eyeliner and mascara.
Situation: You’ve applied a mass amount of black eyeliner on your left eye, and then, because life isn’t fair, the moment you begin to apply eyeliner on your right eye, it begins to crumble.
Life Hack: Leaving it in the freezer for just 15 minutes will allow your liner to glide on seamlessly. Crumbles begone!

Situation: You’ve purchased 15 different eyebrow gel brands, and none of them seem to keep gravity from pulling your hairs towards the ground.
Life Hack: Spray a toothbrush or a clean mascara wand with hairspray, then brush your brow hair upwards and style them as you wish.

4. Eyelash Curler
Situation: You’ve just pulled all of your eyelash extensions off of your eyelids, and now you look like a naked mole rat with sporadic newborn lashes.
Life Hack: To curl even the smallest baby lashes, try heating your lash curler with a hair dryer for five seconds before curling them.

Situation: You go to pay for the manicure you just received and when you open your wallet, you ruin everything.
Life Hack: Before heading to the nail salon, wipe your nails with an acetone-based cleanser. This will clean any excess dirt, oil or moisturizer from your nails, ensuring that the polish adheres correctly and lasts a few days longer.
6. Puffy Eyes
Situation: You were too lazy to turn off your blasting ceiling fan and now your eyes are puffier than a blow up bed.
Life Hack: Apply raw potato slices to soothe your eyes. Potatoes are an astringent, so they help decrease water retention and contain the enzyme catalase which lightens any under eye darkness. Cut two slices and sit with them on your eyes for 10 minutes. Maybe even mediate. Just remember to wash your eyes after the 10 minutes is up. You know, so they don’t burn.

7. Shaving Cream
Situation: You’re on vacation on a remote tropical island full of tan men with eight-packs and you forgot your shaving cream.
Life Hack: Just use conditioner, seriously. Conditioner softens the hair on your legs – a little better than shaving cream tbh – making your shaving experience easier than ever, all while leaving your skin unbelievably soft.
