Whether you are in a hurry and you don’t have time for your usual beauty routine and you need a few shortcuts or something unexpected happened and your beauty has been compromised,fear not. There are a lot of things that can help you regain your confidence back and you will be able to look your best if you follow a few simple tricks.
If you only have a few minutes before heading out of the door to do your make-up, splash your face with cold water before applying make-up.
The cold water will shrink the pores, tighten the skin, making it easier to apply make-up and preventing future disasters.
Cold water is also beneficial for your manicure. If you want the nail polish to dry faster let the nail polish dry a bit than put your fingernails in ice cold water to speed up the process.
If bubbles pop up in your polish dip the pad of your finger into nail polish remover and smooth over the bubbled area.
To prevent this from happening try applying a good base coat before applying nail polish. Also if you run out of cuticle cream apply Vaseline, baby oil or olive oil instead.
No time to brush your teeth after lunch? Carry an apple in your purse. An apple is not only a healthy, low-calorie snack but also an effective teeth whitener. Stay away from caffeinated drinks and teas and very acidic food as they are among the worst teeth stainers. Need an instant breath freshener? Try yogurt or citrus fruits.
Has a pimple appeared in the worst possible moment?Apply a little apple cider vinegar on it to balance the pH of your skin and then apply a yellow-based concealer with a lip brush to solve the problem. You can try to apply a mixture of a tablespoon of fresh lime juice to prevent the formation of blackheads and pimples.
What can you do if one of your false lashes is about to fall?If it’s only partially detached you can add an extra coat of mascara to keep your false eyelash glued to your real one. Unfortunately, if it’s nearly falling off your only option is to gently peel the strips of your eyelids.
If are you having date and your hair is little greasy and you don’t have time to wash your hair you could use a dry shampoo but this is not your only option. An inexpensive alternative is baby powder or talc powder.
Rub it on your roots and shake the excess powder out. Talcum powder works in the same way. Choose a talc powder which contains witch hazel.
If you don’t have any of this options at hand try pulling your hair back into a ponytail or choose a French braid. It won’t be so noticeable.
