Looking beautiful does not have to take a lot of time or consume a lot of money. There are many things that you can do to fix beauty mishaps or quickly get the look that you want without having to spend hours or break the bank. They may seem weird, but are entirely true.
We have collected 8 strange but very effective beauty tricks and fixes that will help you to always look and feel your absolute best.
1. Makeup Smudge Fix
If you have problems with eye makeup smudging, you can simply dip a Q-tip into Vaseline or makeup remover and go over those smudges to remove them. This allows you to quick fix your eyes without having to completely redo all of your makeup.
2. Broken Nail Fix
If you have broken a fingernail, you do not have to file it down and wait for months until it grows in again. You can fix that broken nail with just a touch of Super Glue. Just dab the glue right on the split and once it dries, cover it over with nail polish. This will keep the nail intact until it grows out a bit so you can file it without losing the length.
3. Lipstick Stain Fix
Most women know that red lipstick simply will not come off without leaving a stain. Instead of scrubbing your mouth raw to remove that stain, just add a bit of makeup remover using a Q-tip and it will erase the red look quickly.
4. Dry Skin Fix
There are certainly many skin lotions on the market that claim to give you softer skin but nothing works better than a raw avocado. Just remove the skin and mash the ripe avocado. Apply the mashed fruit to your body and leave for about 20 minutes. Rinse off and you will have super soft skin for days.
5. Zit Fix
If you notice a new pimple, just add a dab of toothpaste – just enough to cover it. Let the toothpaste dry for about 15 minutes and rinse away. It will absorb the oil that caused the pimple and help to erase it.
6. Dry Spot Fix
Diaper rash lotion is excellent for healing up those ugly dry spots on your feet and elbows. Just add a healthy layer of diaper rash ointment to those areas and watch them clear up overnight.
7. Coffee Grounds
That morning cup of coffee can do more than jolt you awake. The caffeine also helps stimulate blood flow. When mixed with coconut oil or your favourite cleanser, it can be used as an exfoliating face mask for a bright morning glow.
8. Vaseline on Pulse Points
Want your perfume scent to last all day long? Try putting a dab of Vaseline on your pulse points before spraying them with your scent of choice. Vaseline is occlusive and will hold the fragrance for much longer than just your bare skin would.
There you have it, ladies. You can thank us later.
