Beauty Tricks to Try Out for Yourself

As a huge fan of learning the “tricks of the trade”, I’m always up for learning about non-conventional ways of using makeup. Being the beauty fanatic as I am, I’ve come across a number of makeup tricks that are really helpful on any given day when things just seem to go awry. Here’s a number of things I have picked up over the years that you can try out for yourself!

1) Translucent powder for greasy hair: We’ve all had those unfortunate days where we’ve skipped a day of hair-washing—the result? Hair greasies the next day. As strange as it sounds, translucent powder is great for absorbing the oil on the hair, and will instantaneously mattify it to a non-greasy finish. Be sure that it is in fact a translucent powder you are using, and not a colored powder—or else your hair will turn out looking ashy. Of course, this trick should not be abused—washing your hair and clean hygiene takes precedence above “covering up” greasy hair any day!

2) Use Vaseline for even sunless-tanning: I love how multi-functional Vaseline is. One of my favorite uses for it is to use it on my knuckles when it comes to sunless tanning. It really helps prevent the tanner from clinging onto the creases and giving you that really uneven tanned look!

3) Q-tips for removing mascara boo-boo’s: My biggest pet peeve ever is probably accidently getting mascara all over my skin as I attempt to apply it to my lashes. Instead of coming off cleanly as I try to wipe it, it smudges and gets the entire skin area darker. Solution? Allow the mascara to dry completely before using a Q-tip to remove it. The trick is to twist the Q-tip as you remove it to “lift” the product from the skin. Works like a charm every time ☺.

4) Spoon for lash-curling: Yup. You heard that right. Metal spoons can be used to curl the lashes for those who happen to only have that on hand or simply don’t own a lash-curler (but make sure it’s a clean spoon please!). Grip the spoon handle in one palm face up and place the thumb on the edge of spoon (portion that you sip out of). Hold the spoon upside down and grip portions of your lashes between the spoon edge and the spoon—pulling out away from your face. The motion is similar to that of curing a ribbon with scissors (just be sure you’re not pulling too hard to the point where your lashes come out!).

What are some of your own multi-functional beauty tricks??
