Tips & Tricks - Part 2

Hey hey,

Since my first post on tips & tricks (link!), I have come across some more which I want to share with you:

Better lipstick application? - Smile when you apply it, doing this will ensure complete coverage.

Want your perfume to be all over? - Spritz your fragrance on your ankles and knees! Scent rises so will give you an all over coverage.

Want to give yourself a pedicure? - Try using fresh pineapple or Kiwi skins as an exfoliant. 
They contain bromelain (a meat tenderizer) which will help exfoliate rough and dry skin on your feet. Rub the fleshy part on your heels for a few minute, rinse and moisturize.

Have a red spot on your face? - If you have any 'clear eyes' eye drops around, dab this on the are.  Eye drops for brightening eyes, contain vasoconstrictors which shrink blood vessels (to make your eyes appear whiter) - this will take away the redness of a spot and also reduce any inflammation.

Want your lashes to be covered from root to tip? - Use thick card (like a business card) when applying your mascara. Hold the card up along the inside edge of your lashes, then sweep the mascara wand against it.  Doing this will stop your eyelashes 'bending out of the way' of the brush, and you will coat all your lashes all the way to the tips.

Want younger looking skin? - Don't just use powder as part of a routine,  only use it if you need it! and when you do, use it sparingly. Powder can settle into the fine lines on our faces and make us appear older.

Yellow stained nails? - If your nails appear yellowish after months of wearing dark nail polishes - try scrubbing them with a nail brush and whitening toothpaste! it helps!

Do you know any good tips and tricks?
