I’m sure you’ve figured out by now that I love finding interesting beauty tips and secrets.  And as much as I love finding them, I love sharing them with you guys!  These beauty tips come from chercabulasmindbox.com:

Powder your roots

Don’t have time to shower? Grab a big, fluffy makeup brush and dip it into a pile of loose powder.  Give it a good tap on the back of your hand to get rid of the excess, and then dust it over your roots.  “It mops up oil and blends into your strands, so no one will know you didn’t shower.”

Soften your body with avocado

Pick up a ripe avocado and remove the pit and the skin.  Smash it up in a bowl, and apply it directly to your skin.  Let it sit for 20 minutes, then rinse it off.  Your skin will be as smooth as a baby’s bottom.

Boost body lotion with baby oil

To give your legs that soft and shiny look, blend a drop of baby oil into your normal body lotion for that extra luster.

Freeze your eyeliner

To steer clear of your eyeliner pencil crumbling and smudging on your lids, throw your eyeliner in the freezer 15 minutes before you use it.  This will firm up the tip, making it easier to apply it smoothly.

Use toothpaste on a zit

Apply a pea-size amount of minty toothpaste on that stubborn zit, and leave it on for 15 minutes to absorb the oil so the pimple won’t get more clogged, then wash it off.

Spike your lotion with bronzer

Don’t have time to get that sun-kissed look?  “Mix a few pumps of body bronzer with regular hand lotion and pat it on your legs for a gradual dose of sexy, beachy color.”

Shave with conditioner

Ran out of shaving cream?  No problem!  Lather up those legs with some nice, thick hair conditioner.  It’ll soften your hair, making it easier to shave off and leaving your legs silky smooth!

Amp shine with vinegar

Mix one part vinegar with four parts carbonated water, and soak your dry hair.  “Leave on for 15 minutes before you shampoo to lock in shine and combat dullness.”
