LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

BUDGET BEAUTY TIPS

Oooohhh, we love budget beauty tips. Love them to the max. We found some of these and compiled them for you. All of them seemed cool except for that antiperspirant tip.
  • Use antiperspirant on face under foundation to make it last longer on your face, thus saving you re-applying throughout the day.
  • Scrape remaining lipsticks out of tube, place inside pill box or small clean paint pallet and then put in microwave for about 10 seconds at a time (can take more than one try to melt properly) until they are all nice and formed to new container. Place in fridge for approx. 4 minutes.
  • Nail polish is getting low… add one or two small drops of polish remover to the bottle, shake and there you go! A few more coats!
  • Dried out mascara can be heated up to work again. Use hair dryer or soak container in hot water.
  • Can’t afford leave-in conditioner for dry hair? Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to your hair, comb it through, let it sit for about 15 minutes and then wash and condition as usual.
  • Store lip liner and eyeliner in the refrigerator to keep them from drying out.
  • Sharpen the edges of old tweezers with sandpaper.
  • Take old perfume bottles and add water to them, shake up, and now you have a light body spray.
  • Puffy eyes or skin use Preparation H.
  • If you can’t afford oil-absorbing sheets, use toilet seat covers instead.
  • Drop of honey on a blemish, cover with a band-aid and leave overnight.
  • Conditioner can be used for shaving legs when you’re out of shaving cream.
  • After shaving down below apply solid deodorant (not gel) to the area, helps combat ingrown hairs.
  • Use a little bit of Vaseline and then apply eye shadow, it’ll look more vibrant and will look more liquidy instead of powdery.
  • To help whiten your teeth, mix a little baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to form a paste. Use once a week! Also, drink lots of water.
  • If you are in a hurry and don’t have time to wash your hair, put a little baby power in greasy areas, it absorbs the grease and your hair looks fresh. =)
  • If you are applying makeup during the summertime, but it keeps melting off, stick your face in the freezer a few times to freshen up. It saves time, and you don’t have to get your foundation or compact pads from getting greasy and using them up!
  • To dry nail polish in a hurry, spray nails with PAM Oil Spray. (note: this really does work)
  • Olive oil can be added to bath water for a skin softener.
  • Toner/Astringent—Use witch hazel instead. No need to dilute—use full strength. You can also rinse with a splash of Apple Cider Vinegar after cleansing—it balances out the ph of your skin.
  • Cut back on the amount of shampoo you use. Do the same with toothpaste. The manufacturers want us to use more, so we buy more.
  • Keep your pantyhose in the freezer, and they will last longer. (note: remember to take it out at least 30 minutes prior to wear, so you don’t freeze your gams off)

  • For great lotion, mix one-part lotion with one-part vaseline. It works better than plain lotion, and, depending on the cost of your lotion, you can stretch its value. (Note: This totally works)
  • To prevent hair pins from falling out, bend one prong in a “V” about halfway up and insert in hair. It will stay.
  • Old lipstick tubes, thoroughly cleaned, are great for purse-sized pill boxes or for pins.
  • Use hydrogen peroxide as an inexpensive nail bleach.
  • For an excellent facial, mix dry oatmeal and water into a paste and spread on face. Lie down and let it dry. Wash off with warm water.
  • Instead of using pimple-shrinking treatments, try an ice cube dipped in vodka. The cold shrinks the swelling and the alcohol helps to dry the spot.
  • Store makeup pencils in the fridge so they do not crumble when you sharpen them.
  • We use a body wash cloth in the shower. It acts as a body brush, wonderful of your back which you cannot reach too well, acts as a daily exfoliant and makes shower gel go further.
  • Make lipsticks last longer by mixing with lip balm.
