Alright ladies huddle up! If you don't already own a white eyeliner or pencil, INVEST IN ONE NOW!

Tip # 4

  • Preparing your lips for lipstick:

Let's get lipstick ready! All you need is a toothbrush, sugar, coconut oil, and lip balm. First mix your sugar and coconut oil in a bowl. After mixing these ingredients dip your toothbrush into the mix and scrub your lips to remove all the dead and excess skin from your lips. Then apply lip balm all over your lips to add more moisture.  If you're allergic to any of the ingredients you can substitute the coconut oil with any other oil you like.

 

 

Tip # 5

  • Reviving your dull eyeliners:

We've all been there. After using your eyeliners and letting them sit out for a while they tend to dry out leaving you with no hope. Well there's a way to revive the fickle pencil and here are the steps! Take a lighter that's probably been lying around and light the end of the eyeliner, be careful not to let it drip all over you. Let it dry for a bit and use as usual. This method will revive your liner and give you that bold color back.

 

 

Tip # 6

  • Fixing clumpy mascara:

The problem with mascara is that it  dries out and then it starts to become a clumpy mess. One thing you shouldn't do is to continue to pump air into the tube causing it to dry out faster. Ladies a tip we SHOULD ALL KNOW is that you must change your mascara every 3-4 months! We don't want eye infections, pink eye or a staph infection because of not taking care of the essentials. So how do you get rid of the clumps? Run your wand under hot water until the water runs clear. Then place it back into the tube and rub it inside and around the tube. By doing this the heat softens the mascara inside the tube making it apply as if it were brand new. Another simple tip is by adding a couple drops of eye drops or solution into the mascara tube and bam that's it!

Tip # 7
