Repurposing Beauty Tips


I just ran out of shaving cream in the shower. What can I use?

You know what I’ve found that works even better then shaving cream?  Hair conditioner is a great replacement. Its cheaper then shaving cream and it moisturizes your legs so much more.

I’m going away for the weekend and don’t want to pack a whole bunch of makeup with me. What can I live without?

Well you can condense your makeup by using a neutral pink color lipstick as crème blush for your cheeks, a good neutral base for your eye lids and lips of course. Or use a crème blush for your cheeks and lips.

I woke up late and now have no time to wash my hair and it looks greasy!

If you wear your hair in a part you can powder it. Use your every day loose face powder and brush and just swipe it and dab it a few times. The powder will absorb the oil for a little while.

I just used the rest room in the restaurant and saw how oily my face is and I brought nothing in with me!

Grab a toilet seat cover and blot. The seat covers are just about the same material as oil blotting tissues and work just as good.

I have so much loose eye shadow. Can I use it for anything else besides eye shadow?

Eye pigment does last forever.  A little goes a long way. Get your eye liner brush out, add a dab of water and now you can make any color liquid eyeliner.  Same with an eye shadow brush. Add some water and now you have face paint or cream style eye shadow. Lasts much longer then powder and makes a darker more vibrant color.

Grab your clear nail polish and you can make any nail color  the same way by dipping the nail brush into loose pigment, eye shadow.

Fun tip about a shimmer eye shadow: after applying lipstick, just dab the center of both top and bottom lip with a shimmer eye shadow. This gives the impression of fuller lips.
