Have you ever broken an expensive eyeshadow, blush or foundation? Fix it with rubbing alcohol!
Chapped lips are the worst! Make them smooth again by applying lip balm and exfoliating with a toothbrush.
Those expensive pore strips you buy? You can get the same results for pennies at home using unflavored gelatin and milk.
Make your perfume last longer on your skin by applying vaseline to your pulse points first. Then spray on your perfume and enjoy a longer lasting scent!
Are you a total disaster at applying eyeliner? I am. Try this trick: Apply eyeliner to your eyelash curler to curl your lashes and line your lid at the same time. Genius!
Don’t throw away your too-sparkly eyeshadow. Mix it with clear nail polish to make a cool custom color for your nails.
Add Visine to your mascara to make it last longer. Water works in a pinch, too.
For longer lasting curls, curl your hair in the middle first and then from the ends.
Sweater season is never far away, and you know what that means: STATIC HAIR! Calm the frizz using a dryer sheet. Rub it over your hair or apply it to your brush before brushing your hair.
Don’t pay for expensive oil blotting sheets. You have a cheap alternative right in your kitchen! Keep some coffee filters in your purse and car for removing excess oil throughout the day.
Apply foundation to your lips before applying lipstick. It acts as a primer for richer color. Make sure you smile when you apply it to get the foundation in the cracks of your lips.
Afraid you’ll be caught with lipstick on your teeth? After applying lipstick, pop your finger in your mouth and pull it back out to pick up any excess.
Exfoliate your legs before shaving them to bring those tiny hairs out of their follicles. You’ll end up shaving less!
Speaking of shaving your legs, you may get a nick or two now and then. Stop the bleeding and promote healing by applying a clear lip balm. If it works on men’s faces, it should work on your legs, too.
To set your lipstick, cover your lips with a tissue and lightly dust transluscent powder of the tissue.
Keep an extra nail polish brush on hand, and dip it in nail polish remover to get the perfect manicure.
Dark polishes can leave your nails looking dull and dirty. Rub lemon and baking soda over stained nails to make them white again.
