- No beauty cabinet is complete without coconut oil.
Coconut oil is one of the most versatile beauty tools you can own! It easily and gently removes makeup, including waterproof mascara. You can use it as a moisturizing shave gel and as an intense conditioning treatment for your hair. Just apply the coconut oil to your hair, and cover with one of our shower caps for a couple of hours. After you rinse it out, your hair will be glorious.
- Beat frizz and flyaways with dryer sheets.
Gently run a dryer sheet over your hair to smooth down flyaways. It eliminates frizz just like static cling. When you’re done, toss it in with your clothes because it’s still good!
- Hairstyle: Master the art of beachy waves.
Start the night before by loosely braiding your semi-damp hair into four separate braids. In the morning when they’re dry, run a flat iron down them to lock in the wave before unbraiding and tousling your locks.
- Keep bright lipstick off your teeth with petroleum jelly.
Apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to your teeth and instead of lipstick ending up on your teeth, it’ll slide right along and you’ll look fabulous!
- Add moisturizer to your cheeks before applying crème blush.
By rubbing a thin layer of moisturizer on your cheeks before applying your crème blush will create a smooth, slick surface. The blush will blend beautifully and as the moisturizer soaks in, the blush will set.
- You never outgrow baby powder.
This is another versatile tool for any gal on the go. Baby powder makes a great dry shampoo. It can also be used under your arms and between your thighs on hot, humid days to prevent sweating and chafing.
- Mascara is also liquid eyeliner.
Use a small-tipped makeup brush and run it along the mascara wand to get a thin coat of mascara on it. Apply like your normal liquid eye liner and go!
- Finishing powder sets your lipstick too.
After applying a colorless finishing powder to set your makeup, place a tissue over your freshly colored lips and gently dust powder over the tissue. It will float through and set your lipstick while giving you a sexy, matte look.
- Use liquid highlighter for a dewy glow.
Before applying your moisturizer or foundation, mix a bit of liquid highlighter in with it. After applying the mix, your skin will take on that model-worthy dewy glow.
- Tame unruly brows with hairspray.
Eyebrows are hair too and they can be tamed with hairspray just like the locks on your head. Simply spray a bit on an eyebrow brush and comb in. The hairspray will set any strays in their place.
