Just A Tip or Few: Best Beauty Tips

The Fall 2009 InStyle Makeover issue had a wonderful article with the 50 Best Beauty Tips of All Time. I am a sucker for tips especially beauty tips so I thought I would pass along a few of the best. Enjoy!

Enhance Your Conditioner: Warm it up in a microwave safe bowl for 15 seconds. The heat helps open up the hair cuticle, causing the conditioner to penetrate more deeply.

Plump Up Your Lips: Dab your lips with peppermint oil, it’s an instant lip plumper.

Zap Frizz: Wrap wet hair in a towel that’s been soaked in ice water. This seals the shaft, so as your hair dries, it will stay frizz free.

Heal Dry Hands: Rub the inside of a lemon directly onto the backside of your hands. Lemons have high concentrations of citric acid and vitamin c, which stimulate connective tissue production.

Wake Up Tired Eyes: Apply black mascara, then tip the ends of your lashes with a mascara in plum or navy to make the whites of your eyes look brighter.

Add Oomph To Lips: Always keep a sheer golden lip gloss in your makeup bag. It instantly warms up any lip color and gives you a brand new shade.

Erase Nail Stains: Soak fingers in denture cleaner for about three minutes. The liquid’s oxidizing agents will help remove stains.

Create Liquid Liner: Add a few eyedrops to a dark eye shadow. The drops are mess free and sterile, which means you won’t introduce bacteria into your makeup.

Get No Budge Shadow: For a creamy eye shadow that won’t crease, use waterproof eyeliner pencil. Draw over the eyelid, then blend with finger.
