Everything you need to know about where to start beauty
Sticky, thick polish can be thinned with a little bit of nail polish remover. After only adding a tiny bit, seal up the top and shake thoroughly. By doing this, you can get a couple of more uses out of the bottle.
Lightly spray your face with a hydrating mist to make your makeup last longer. The mist will help set your makeup, keep it looking fresh and give you that just done makeup look for hours. This is great for keeping your makeup in place for those long days at work or nights out with friends.
Air dry your hair whenever possible to prevent exposing your hair to heat damage.
Using heated styling tools too often can dry out and break your hair. Put your hairdryer on the lowest setting to avoid damage to your hair. Your hair will feel silky soft for many years.
One of the most affordable tools to include in your makeup case is the disposable triangular facial sponge. Dampen the sponge, then use it to help apply your facial makeup more smoothly. You can also use it to smooth down flaky skin patches all over the face, or even to soften makeup that appears to be caked-on.
A few drops of rich sweet almond oil can be a very useful addition to your skincare routine as well as for use in emergencies. Use it on dry skin to infuse heavy duty moisture, or apply it to your cuticles to make them noticeably softer before a manicure or pedicure.
Eyeliner can add impact in a way that few products can.
Steady your elbow on the table to avoid making mistakes, then use an eye pencil with a dull point to draw on a series of small dashes across the upper lash line. Use a smudging tool or sponge to blend the dashes to create a single line.
To make small eyes appear larger, try lining your lower waterline with a white or peach colored eyeliner. By lightening the color of your waterline so it blends better with the white part of your eye, you can create the illusion that your eyes are larger and brighter than they really are.
Make your shampoo and conditioner last longer.
If you are using an expensive shampoo or conditioner that is thick, you can stretch out the amount of use you get out of it by watering it down. Be careful not to add too much water because this can ruin it.
Instead of using expensive toners, moisturizers, cleansers, and exfoliants, try more simple methods, such as a soft washcloth, pure castile soap, Aloe Vera gel, and a mild toner. These natural products are healthy and wholesome and do miracles for all skin types. If aloe alone is not providing enough moisture, add to it some vitamin E oil. If you want a toner that is medicated, you can add some tea tree oil.
People who have fair skin and hair need a little extra tinting to bring out definition.
The best is to use eyebrow tinting, this will bring out the color of your eyebrows as well as add an extra pop to your eyes. Sometimes the subtle little things can make the most difference.
Bump up your hair color.
If you have dyed your hair and the results aren’t as dramatic as you like you can fix this by adding a box of hair coloring to your shampoo. Lather it into your hair and let it set for 5 minutes, then rinse it out.
If you ever find yourself relly under time pressure, here’s a great tip on how to do a quick makeup job. Put some waxy lip balm on your fingertip. Then put a dark eyeliner on top of that. Smear it onto your eyes. Then finish with mascara. Apply lipstick. You’re ready to go!
If you have discovered little white bumps under your eyes, know that these are called Milia and are quite common.
They are a harmless form of a cyst caused by dry, dead cells being trapped under the skin. You can try exfoliation or use a moisturizer that includes an exfoliant with vitamin A to help them disappear, and prevent them in the future.

Use the ignition part of a matchbook or box if you don’t have a nail file.
If you find yourself in need of a nail file, but can’t seem to find one, you can use the rough part you use to light matches on a match book as a nail file.
