1. Tea bags to repair damaged nails.
If you break a nail while
you're out and need some manicure triage, just cut out a bit of the
filter from a tea bag and use any adhesive you have to glue it under
2. Almonds as eyeliner.
If you've always loved the idea of
wearing natural makeup, this is a fun one to try. Light an almond on
fire, let it burn, and then gather the soot to use as powder eyeliner.
The almond oil makes the ashes "sticky" so it stays on your lash line,
and the color you'll get is a really pretty, intense black.
3. Baking soda to fix self-tanner streaks.
If your self-tanner
came out uneven, don't panic. Instead, grab that box of baking soda from
your fridge, and give yourself a good exfoliation. You'll be surprised
by how much more gentle and effective it is than using a scrub.
4. Freeze (or burn) your eyeliner.
Got eyeliner that always
crumbles or falls off the pencil when you apply it? Just pop it in your
freezer for half an hour to harden it up for better application. If, on
the other hand, your eyeliner formula is too hard, just hold it over a
lighter for a second. It'll soften it up so that you can apply it more
easily, and, when it cools down, it'll stay just as well.
