Spoonie Beauty Hacks: Funny Hacks for Those with Low Energy

A collection of funny how-to guides for beauty problems, aimed at those who are chronically ill…

A while ago I posted a #spooniebeautyhack on Instagram. It was of me with messy hair after a nap, and the caption read:” Spoonie beauty hacks: Bed-head. Step 1: nap, Step 2: wake up (hard), Step 3: ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED.”

The reaction was good. So I followed it up with another on how to cover tired eyes.

It seems you guys like my sense of humour on this one. So I decided to put a bit of effort into making them into visual guides that are highly pinnable (should you be so social media-ly inclined).

Currently, there are only three but I will keep adding to this post with new Spoonie Beauty Hacks. Let me know if you have any suggestions in the comments below.

  1. Love it! My favourite hack is to cover the dark shadows with glitter! I’m sure I saw it on Instagram or Pinterest.

    1. Yes! I’ve seen that too 🙂

  2. Why haven’t I thought of a masquerade ball mask before? There’s me faffing around with concealer, but this would be so much quicker & a heck of a lot more effective!
    Thanks for the chuckles Laura 🙂

  3. That’s so funny, thank you Laura 🙂
