Every woman I know seems to have at least one or two tricks up her sleeve, and when I shared 10 of my favorite beauty hacks last year here on The Stir, I heard that I missed some of the best!
So here you, nine more beauty hacks we've gathered from women who swear they work ... and swear they will save you time and money on your beauty routine.
Which are your favorites?
