5 Good To Know Beauty Tips

Just a few random beauty fix things to have in your brain's back pocket....

I've personally done all of these for years.  Some may be ones you've heard of or tried already, and hopefully there are a few that are new to you!  

#1  If you're out of your favorite exfoliator just mix a teaspoon of baking soda into your facial cleanser when you wash your face.  It's mild enough to not cause any microscopic scratches on your skin, but strong enough to get the job done!  Scrub, scrub, scrub!

#2  Toothpaste a breakout.  Weird but effective- this tip came in handy a lot back when I was 13 (my face could have been worse but it definitely wasn't pleasant)...  Toothpaste has a mixture of certain ingredients (baking soda, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol, menthol, and essential oils) which will cause a pimple to dry out, and it's already mixed for you!  

#3  If your fringe gets oily throughout the day and it starts to clump and separate and you don't have your trusty dry shampoo on hand- ladies that like to touch their hair constantly know what I'm talking about (I fall into that category), our finger tip oils get into our hair and totally mess with our hair vibes so, use two facial blotting papers to quickly absorb all the oil.  One to rub up on your scalp and the other to shake through your fringe.  That's the fail safe thing to do- your other option is the powder brush and translucent powder that you may have in your touch up bag- use a TINY bit of that.  IT HAS TO BE A TRANSLUCENT POWDER, otherwise it'll just look like you did your makeup blindfolded and you unfortunately completely missed your face...

#4  Vaseline your cuticles with a precise brush before you polish your nails, the petroleum jelly keeps your cuticle protected so it can stay a polish flood free zone, and bonus- it keeps them hydrated!   

#5  In the mood for a sheerer foundation but don't have one?  Just mix equal parts of your fuller coverage foundation with your facial moisturizer.  Instant tinted moisturizer!  I personally do this one a lot in the summer on vacation in an attempt to pack less makeup :)
