Sneaky Beauty Tips



Reinvent your almost-finished bronzer
For bronzer that’s almost given its all—or isn’t quite the right shade to use on the face—mix the remnants with a moisturizer to create a pretty, shimmery lotion and apply like a highlighter to arms and d├ęcolletage.

Scoop out every smidge of your favorite lipstick
Even if you’re down to the bottom of the tube, chances are you can still get a few more wears out of your favorite lipstick—here’s how: Using a Q-tip helps you get every last bit out of your lipstick tube or gloss pot—and it’s more sanitary that using germy fingers

Pick up the pieces…of blush, that is
Drop your purse and shatter one of your favorite products? Worry not, ladies: If a shadow or pressed powder breaks…you can add a few drops of rubbing alcohol and press the pieces back together. The powder will reset in the product’s metal pan.

Use hair conditioner to get silky-smooth legs
If a hair conditioner is doing a “meh” job on your hair, don’t toss it just yet. “If I ever have a hair conditioner that isn’t doing the job, I use it as a shaving cream,” says Annie Tomlin, BellaSugar editor.

Rescue (and remix!) your favorite sparkly shadows
Soft, sparkly eye shadows sometimes crumble in my makeup bag from all the back and forth to work, you can transfer them into a small plastic jar so that you can still use them.

Whip up new makeup from old lipstick
Turn that last bit of lipstick into a cream blush! Just smile, dab a small bit onto the balls of your cheekbones and blend upward toward the temples.

Revive a hardened-up nail polish
When it comes to rescuing your favorite shade of hardened-up or gloppy-feeling nail lacquer, add a couple drops of nail polish thinner to restore its consistency.

Extend the life of your overused makeup brush
When your makeup brush starts losing its bristles, take a pair of pliers to the metal part to get them secure and useful again .

Don’t let the heat beat your eye pencil
During the summer, keep your eyeliners in the fridge. It keeps them from getting too soft, so you won’t waste product through over sharpening.
