As Mamamia's beauty editor and one of the co-hosts of You Beauty podcast, I've come across more than a few dodgy beauty trends in my time (see: the infamous foundation-in-water hack) — and this year certainly didn't disappoint.As you're probably aware, there's an awful lot of BS out there — including some pretty shady trends that are not only very silly, but downright dangerous (ahem, tanning nasal sprays).
In saying that, there are some beauty hacks out there that are genuinely really great. The kind of golden nuggets I've discovered that've worked their way into my makeup routine and make it easier, quicker — and the results, dare I say, even better.
