Beauty Tips, Tricks & Secrets!

I love makeup, and everything to do with it. But, I don't always have the money, nor time to spend on getting dolled up. That's why I wanted to share a few cost effective, quick and unique makeup/beauty tips.

Need Nail Polish To Dry Fast?
Put a drop of vegetable oil, or vegetable oil cooking spray on your nails after painting them. It
dries them instantly!

Want Clean Makeup Brushes?
Use baby shampoo! It's less expensive and way more convenient than brush cleaner. It's also less harsh and will not ruin your brushes.

Want Longer Lashes?

Put Vaseline all over your eyelashes overnight. Just be careful not to get any in your eyes.
Vaseline provides excellent conditioning and moisturizing for lashes that are dry and brittle. It helps strengthen your eyelashes, and aids new thicker hair growth.

Ran out of makeup remover?

Don't go to bed with hard to wash off mascara still on your lashes. Just squirt a little moisturizer on a q-tip, and rub in on your lashes. Wait a couple seconds then wash off. It does the same thing as most makeup remover creams.

Need A Lip balm A.S.A.P?

Just go into your kitchen (or bathroom) and use any one of these items: Olive oil, Coconut oil, Sweet almond oil, Shea butter, Cocoa butter, Jojoba oil, Vitamin E. They all moisturize dry, cracked lips beautifully!

Need To Sharpen Your Eyeliner?
Place it in the freezer first, it will sharpen much easier. Especially in muggy and hot weather.

Eyes Aren't As Bright As They Should Be?

Use a light blue pencil or shadow under the eyes. The color blue works as a brightener. 

Have Under Eye Bags And Circles?
There are many different tricks that can be used, here are a few of my favorite:
Raw potato slices contain potassium to take away dark circles under the eye. To alleviate puffy, swollen eyes place bags of frozen peas under the eyes. More remedies for under eye bags- cucumber slices, or wet tea bags.
Want Whiter Teeth?
Peroxide and baking soda used as a toothpaste will whiten teeth.

Going to Dye Your Hair?

Don't wash it! - Only dye hair that has not been washed for 1 day. The natural hair oils will assist in making the hair color application more successful. The color will cling better to hair that is not dry.

Want To Get Rid Of Breakouts?

Use apple cider vinegar, it's perfect for fighting acne. Use it daily and you'll see results. You can dab it on with a cotton pad, or make a mixture. Steep a handful of clarifying parsley, then mix the cooled infusion in a spray bottle with a splash of vinegar and a few drops of tea tree oil.

Need To Shave?
Be sure to exfoliate your skin before shaving. It gets rid of all the dead skin cells that could clog up your razor, preventing a close shave. Wait until after your shower to shave. The steam softens hairs for smoother results. Don’t use creams that contain heavy fragrance or alpha hydroxy acids on freshly shaven legs. They’ll sting and cause rashes.

Have Annoying
Use a dryer sheet. All you have to do is rub the sheet on your hair! The cling of a dryer sheet will get rid of that nasty bedhead!

Want A New Nail Polish Color?
Make any shade with eyeshadow, and clear polish! All you have to do is take any old eyeshadow you like the color of. Use a toothpick to scrape the eyeshadow out. Then place the shadow in any clean nail polish. Shake, well, and you're done!

Want To Make A Face Mask?
This mask is best for women (or even men) who have oily skin. The ingredients to make the mask are: 1banana, preferably ripe, 1 tbsp honey and an orange or a lemon! Mix the banana and honey together in a bowl. Add a few drops of juice from an orange or a lemon. Apply to face for 15 minutes, then rinse.
