3) Cotton Swab as a Smudge Brush and Pencil Brush
Don’t have makeup brushes for blending your eye makeup? No problem! A cotton swab can work not less than a miracle to make your makeup look.
You can simply replace your smudge and pencil brushes for cotton swabs. It can be used to simply to apply eye shadow on your lower or upper lash line, smudge out your kajal or simply set your kajal with an eye shadow for a long lasting finish. If you are a beginner in makeup, cotton swabs can help you make your eyeliner perfect.
4) Spoon for Eyelash Curler
Line a small metal spoon against your lash line. Using your finger, gently pull your lashes up against the spoon as if you were curling a ribbon. It doesn’t hurt at all, and you may even find it less intimidating than using an eyelash curler. Finally, apply your favorite mascara and, voila! Gorgeous, curled lashes.
5) Body Scrub
1-1/2 cups Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/8 cup local, raw Honey
1/4 teaspoon of desired scent options: Homemade Pure Vanilla Extract, Lemon Juice, Lavender essential oil, Fresh ground coffee, Cinnamon or Clove
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together to form a paste. Add scent if you would like to, but it is not necessary.
Store body scrub in a sealed container in your shower or by the sink. No need to refrigerate.
To use, scoop some into the palm of your hand and massage skin as needed.
