Low on product? Take the stopper out

Many products such as mascara and concealers have a stopper in place at the top of the tube. When it seems like there isn’t much product left, grab some tweezers and remove the stopper for access to more product in the tube.

HERE is a quick tutorial on YouTube for getting the most out of products.  

Vaseline Can Remove Makeup

Stubborn eye makeup such as eyeliner or waterproof mascara can be easily removed with vaseline.

Vaseline is petroleum-based, so it dissolves almost any kind of makeup gently.

Vaseline is also safe to use around your eye area and is especially effective at removing waterproof mascara.

Use Coconut Oil and Vaseline to Grow Lashes to Full Potential 

Coconut oil mixed with vaseline will help lashes to grow to their full potential, it will enable them to grow to their full length and thickness.

Coconut oil does not increase the rate of lash growth, but it will strengthen them and prevent them from falling out as frequently. Coconut oil also helps fight bacteria that can also lead to hair loss. The Vaseline will moisturise the lashes, making them look fuller and lusher.

Coconut Oil Highlight

This hack may not be suitable for everyone as coconut oil is highly comedogenic and may clog pores on the face.

Using coconut oil on the cheekbones as a subtle shiny highlight is a great natural way to brighten the face and give it a dewy look.

Coconut oil is good for the skin as it hydrates and moisturises, but be aware of coconut oil clogging pores if you have large pores.

Use Honey to Clear Acne 

Place a small amount of raw honey over the irritated area, and then cover with a bandaid. As honey has natural wound healing properties, it will assist with calming the acne. 

For a more in depth explanation about how honey can remove pimples, honey’s main antibacterial effects have to do with its high content of glucuronic acid, which gets converted to glucose oxidase. On the skin, this oxidase is immediately converted to hydrogen peroxide, Hydrogen peroxide functions similarly to other acne treatments, such as benzoyl peroxide.

Soap Brows

Using soap on the brows provides shape and volume, the best way to do it is by brushing a lash brush in a bar of soap and then brushing the soap through the brows.

The soap will coat the hairs and give them a fuller and neater appearance.

Make sure the soap is suitable for your skin type before proceeding to create soap brows. 

Use Honey on Dry Lips 

Exfoliate the lips with a lip scrub, and then place a thin layer of raw honey over the lips overnight for soft, smooth lips in the morning.

Honey has natural wound healing properties that will help dry or cracked lips heal faster.

Honey’s antibacterial properties will also help to prevent infection if the lips are cracked. Honey also has mild exfoliating properties to gently remove dry, flaky skin without causing irritation.

Baby Powder as a Dry Shampoo and Mascara setting powder

Baby Powder is safe for the skin, and can be used on the face and scalp. 

Out of dry shampoo? Use a small amount of baby powder on the scalp and brush it through for a DIY dry shampoo. 

To set mascara and avoid it running in the heat, brushing a light amount of baby powder onto the lashes before applying mascara will do the trick.
