#1 How to revive a dying mascara
The worst thing when putting on your makeup in the morning, is realizing your favorite mascara has dried up. Don’t be too quick and throw it in the bin. You can revive it with this simple hack. Start off by removing the wand from your mascara and take a bottle of contact lens solution (saline). This can be purchased very inexpensively at most drug stores.
Squeeze in 1 to 2 drops (only) into the mascara tube.
Replace the wand and give it a little wiggle to mix the solution in.
Try the consistency on the back of your hand. If it’s still a little dry, then add a drop or two more.
TOP TIP: The trick is to do little at a time, adding too much can make your mascara too runny so just go EASY!
And always remember to check the expiry date of the saline solution before applying.
#2 Say goodbye to dark circles
Staying up late, can have some, not so flattering, repercussion’s the following morning (i.e. dark circles).Regardless whether you were cramming for an exam or staying up with baby that just couldn’t fall asleep, the results are the same. That’s why we have a simple and easy technique to get rid of the dark circles using… tea bags. Yes you read that right, tea bags! Soak a tea bag preferably a chamomile or green tea bag in water. Chill it by placing it in the refrigerator for a while. Then, place them over your eyes for about 3-4 minutes. You can also use this remedy on a regular basis in order to see even better results in your overall appearance.
#3 Not just an eye-shadow
Overstuffed purses or just plain clumsy moments can lead to pulverized powders and chopped ChapSticks. But you can still squeeze more months out of your favorite product with a bit of craftiness. Plus, you can even use these mishaps to your advantage to create a completely customized palette or a whole new product. This is the ultimate way to salvage any broken powder or eye-shadow into a cream formula, to either use with its original intent, or maybe create a lipstick, or blush out of it. Once you’ve pounded down the shadow into a fine powder, add Vaseline. Place in a container, refrigerate, and you’ve created a crack-resistant alternative.
#4 Long-lasting perfume
For those who don’t make a habit of splashing out on expensive fragrances, one thing will be at the forefront of your mind when you do – how can I make it last all day?
It turns out that there are areas on the body that are best for spritzing – and they are not always the places we expect. The optimal points for applying your perfume, for long-lasting effects are spots where our pulse is most intense. This means, wrists, inside elbow and behind the knees.
You could also apply Vaseline on those key points before spraying your perfume, in order to make it last longer. This happens because Vaseline does not get absorbed by the skin. Try it and tell us what you think! Did it work for you?
