If you have any tricks of your own you think everyone should know do share in the comments.
2. Maybe this is only a trick all make-up wearers should know, but the best way to get a smoky eye with ease is to use the chunkiest meltiest fattest pencil eyeliner you own, sharpen it to a long point, and then close your eye (GENTLY) around the point. Then drag the pencil from corner to corner, tightlining your waterline. If your pencil was chunky and melty enough, not only will you have got your waterlines done perfectly, but the excess will have smudged and smoked its way around your eye without you having to worry about doing anything to make it happen.

3. You can make pretend ice cream out of bananas, and nothing but bananas. And it's as easy as this: cut bananas into chunks. Freeze those chunks. Blend them. They go powdery and then... they turn into icecream. When I learned this I couldn't stop going on about it. Itâs amazing. Ice cream. But fruit. And you can add chocolate or syrup or whatever if you want it to taste more unhealthy, but the texture is just like creamy ice cream. Squeamish Louise
4. Fancy building a bonfire but have no idea how to get it going? The easiest kindling to use is rubber, like the stuff you get in a bicycle tyre repair kit. It burns really easily and quickly even when wet. Stick a tiny strip in the middle of a pile of dry twigs and you'll have a ranging inferno in no time at all. Just leave the bongos at home, please.

5. I love little tips and tricks that baffle and astound onlookers. Such as olive oil stops a pan boiling over, a spoon in the neck of the bottle stops champagne going flat, sanitary towels make better insoles than insoles. However, I have been caught short as it were by some of these so called tricks. One being hanging up a crinkled shirt/dress in the bathroom as you take a steamy shower. The idea is the wrinkles will drop out. People, they don't! You may have to just buy an iron. Or hang your clothes up properly. Squeamish Kate
