Who doesn’t love a few quirky recession busting beauty tips?! From mascara to lip gloss tricks, take a look below. 🙂
Banish Flaky Mascara
So we know you should only hang on to your mascara for 3 months, but sometimes they can dry up before then and your freshly coated lashes may start to flake. What’s a girl to do?! Bring your mascara back to life with a few drops of saline solution. It’s cheap and you can get it from any chemist. Plus if you wear contact lenses, you’ll definitely have it knocking around!
Applying the perfect, precise flick of liquid eye liner isn’t always the easiest task! If you’re a fan of the cat eye but don’t have the steadiest hand, try following the three steps shown in the photo above to help you out. Use the stem of a spoon to draw a clear diagonal line and then turn the spoon over and use the curved edge of the spoon to draw a line towards the base of your lashes. Simply fill it in and there you go!
Turn your pencil eye liner into a gel formula
If your eye pencil is creating a harsh line and you would prefer a smudgier look, simply hold your pencil under a flame as shown for one second and allow it to cool for 15 seconds. The pencil will change into a more gel like consistency, which will help you create a different look.
Create a lip gloss with your eye shadow
If you love one of your eye shadows and would like to put it on your pout, you can! Mix a little loose pigment eye shadow, like the one shown above, with some salve or petroleum jelly like Vaseline and you can create a brand new lippie!
Heat your eyelash curler with a hair dryer
Don’t have a heated eyelash curler? No problem! Just blast your ordinary eyelash curler with your hair dryer until it heats up, wait until it cools a little but is still warm, and curl away. The heat will help hold the curl for longer.
