Beauty Hacks

This is a listing of charm related “hacks” – just tips as well as tricks that are inexpensive, as well as perhaps a little unconventional. There are all things I use on a regular basis that have been practical to my charm routine – I hope you get some new ideas!

Note that I’ve gleaned some of these ideas from various online sources over the years, as well as some I’ve dreamed up myself.

Clear cellophane tape – to remove flaky skin from my face!  No amount of AHA or exfoliation can get rid of 100% of flaky skin during the winter months on me (especially around my nose area).  This quick little trick has helped foundations to apply smoothly even if my skin wasn’t perfect initially.  Make sure to get the glossy cellophane tape, not the magic (matte) tape, as the glossy tape is slightly much more tacky as well as will pick up more.  I just get it from the dollar store so it’s not super high quality as well as it’s not crazy sticky like packing tape or duct tape.  Do a test patch to make sure your skin can tolerate this.

Translucent loose face powder – as eyelash primer.  Dust a light coating of loose face powder onto bare lashes, after curling them as well as just before applying mascara.  Then apply mascara on top as usual.  This acts as a lash primer to assist bulk up the lashes to add volume.  I prefer loose powder over pressed powder since there are less binding ingredients with loose powder, so there is less possibility of getting clumpy lashes.

Pressed face powder – in a pinch, use your existing pressed face powder as your eye shadow transition shade.  I do this often whenever I’m travelling to save space in my makeup bag.  To take it a step further, you can likewise purchase a face powder a shade or 2 darker than your skin tone to use as a deeper transition shade.  Usually this is much less costly per gram than buying an eye shadow (and it might double up as a bronzer).

Toilet paper – instead of facial tissue.  I use TP to wipe brushes between blending, or to clean product off my fingers when using primers or spot concealing. Toilet paper is preferable over facial tissue paper as they’re the perfect size for brushes, as well as with everyday usage, less wasteful as well as less costly.  I likewise use it to blot my foundation of excess oils just before applying my finishing powder. I experimented with several brands before I arrived at the optimal one: Charmin Ultra strong – it is the least linty as well as most tear resistant as well as absorbent of all the ones I’ve tried.

Spatula – for applying moisturizer to my back. Joo! I discovered this only recently when my back was getting super itchy as well as I just might not reach to apply moisturizer. So like a Primate establishing tools, I sought out a gadget that would assist me reach my back. Enter the Betty Crocker silicone spatula ($2 Dollarama). This is the perfect tool for applying moisturizer since it doesn`t take in any type of of the lotion, as well as the flexible material mimics that of a hand. There is a bit of a discovering curve to using a mirror to guide in the application, however not having an itchy dry back is totally worth it!
