YouTube beauty blogger Wengie gives viewers tips on how to use everyday objects in their makeup routines.
The first hack is to store your sets of false eyelashes in a pill container. Place a set in each of the day compartments. The next hack is to use a triangular scale ruler to help shape your eyebrows. Use it to mark your shape points with concealer, then blend it together for a clean look. Next, Wengie suggests using products with built-in primer. She uses a Clinique lipstick and says the primer makes it last longer and go on smoother.
Wengie’s next hack is to rub Vaseline on your body before spraying on perfume; this makes the scent last longer and ensures it won’t dry out your skin. Next, she suggests using a fork to create a nose contour. Tame your eyebrows by spritzing an unused toothbrush with hairspray. Crumble expired eye shadow into clear nail polish for a new polish color.
Put a piece of tape on the outer corner of your eye to create an eyeliner stencil. Store your makeup brushes in a straw holder to keep them free of dust. Create your own makeup remover and makeup brush cleanser using baby shampoo, coconut oil, and water. Mash up a ripe strawberry, then use it like toothpaste for whiter teeth. You can also get whiter teeth by rubbing the inside of a banana peel on them.
Cover your roots in a pinch with regular or brow mascara. Make your favorite lipstick metallic by dabbing highlighter powder on top of it. Hold a spoon over your eyelid as you apply mascara so it does not transfer onto your skin and ruin your eye shadow. Draw patterns on a cheap clipboard with hot glue to create your own brush cleaner. Put bobby pins on each side of a blush brush to make your own fan brush.
