1. Shave With Conditioner
If you’re out of shaving cream, lather your legs with conditioner instead of soap. Conditioner will soften the hair on your legs making it easier to shave (and it will leave your skin feeling extra silky!)
2. De-Puff Your Eyes with Raw Potatoes
It is recommended to use raw potato slices to soothe your eyes. They decrease water retention and help lighten dark under eye circles. Wash and peel a potato, cut two slices and place one on each eye for 10 minutes. Lie down, relax and let the potatoes work their magic. Rinse the eye area gently with lukewarm water when you’re done.
3. No Makeup Remover? Try Lotion Instead
If you’re out of makeup remover, use body lotion to get rid of makeup.
4. Create Fuller Lips
If you’re tired of having thin, pursed puckers, extend your lip line using a neutral-toned lip liner. Then apply lipstick over top. Be careful though — don’t extend your lip line too much.
5. Use a Flat Iron to Create Waves
Flat irons are amazing tools with multiple uses. Not only can you use it to straighten your hair, you can also create tight curls or soft romantic waves.
Exfoliation is an important and easy way to buff away the dead skin cells that cover up your skin’s natural glow.
7. Use for Old Mascara Wands
Don’t throw away your old mascara wand, it’s still got a few uses left. Clean it and use it as a brow brush instead.
8. Aloe Vera is your friend
Apply Aloe Vera extract onto your freshly cleansed face, leave on for 15 minutes and wash off with warm water.
9. Don’t keep cosmetics forever
The majority of skincare, personal care and cosmetic items should be used within 6 months of opening. Make sure that you spring clean your make-up bag every few months as you would be surprised at the potentially harmful and toxic products that we use regularly with no idea of the possible dangers
10. Avoid Chipped Nail Polish like the Plague
