- If you missed out on closing your mascara tight enough and your mascara has clumped, there is no need to get disheartened. We can fix it. Rush to your chemist and buy a small bottle of saline ( which is basically, 5% NaCl or salt in sterile water). Add a few drops of saline to your mascara and the clumps would dissolve leaving your mascara as good as new. A word of caution here, do not try this with expired mascara… in that case, buy a new one, right away. No cheating!!
- Want to apply Mascara like a pro?? Use a visiting card to keep the mascara off your upper lid. You will be able to get to the roots of lashes to get that nice volume without the risk of spoiling your eye make up.
- So, if you have a really bright, glossy nail polish that is simply over the top and you would have preferred it to me matte… Well ladies, that too can be arranged. Mix in some cornstarch in your nail paint using a tooth pick to convert any nail paint into it’s matte version.
- Want to get a voluminous high pony tail. Simply divide your pony into 2 sections and clip in a small clutch-er between the upper and lower sections.
- Want to spare a visit to the beauty parlor. Get rid of split ends by taking a small section of hair and twisting them. The stray hair that point put are your split ends. Use a small scissor to trim them away.
- Want to get a puffy hair do. Instead of a comb, try using a clean toothbrush to tease your hair and get a voluminous puff.
- Have scanty eyebrows and want to fill them in. Use a Brown eye shadow on a clean mascara wand to create illusion of thicker brows.
