16 Awesome Beauty Uses For Common Household Items

Saving money is NOT  an easy task for most women. Between today’s cost of living and pretty much everything else we do, it sometimes feels like there’s just not enough to go around. That’s why a girl’s gotta be resourceful when it comes to her beauty products,.
Be sure to share your tips in the comment below. :) 

1. Distilled white vinegar
This pantry staple removes stubborn gel cheek stain residue from your hands faster than soap and water, and it won’t dry out your skin.

2. Tin foil
Did you know that tin foil can be used to create curly hair when coupled with a flatiron?

3. Cinnamon
Got a pimple? Mix a little cinnamon with honey to spot-treat your zits.

4. Toothpicks
Standard toothpicks are a foolproof way to spot-fix any nail polish mistakes.

5. Lipbalm
If you’ve nicked yourself with a razor , applying some classic Lipbalm can soothe, heal, and stop a minor cut from bleeding.

6. Microwave
Great for heating up your eyelash curler.

7. Vodka
Did you know that soaking your razor in vodka not only cleans it, but keeps it sharper longer? Also, if you mix a little vodka with water and spray on your clothes, it’ll get rid of lingering perfume smells if you can’t make it to the dry cleaner.

8. An old business card
Use the edge of a business card or a Post-It note to draw a flawless cat-eye using eyeliner

9. Vaseline
Who knew dabbing a touch of Vaseline wherever you spray perfume makes your scent last longer. Why? Because the oils found in petroleum jelly “holds on” to scents and prevents evaporation.

10. Olive oil
Take a tip from the pros and clean heavily soiled makeup brushes by spilling a few drops of olive oil on a paper towel and swirling your tools in it until the makeup breaks down.

11. Metal spoons
Sure, keeping ‘em in the fridge and popping them over your eyes to combat puffiness is a good trick, but who knew that you can curl your eyelashes with a spoon?

12. Raw honey
Raw honey makes an amazing face mask.

13. Shaving cream
Did you know regular shaving cream removes icky foundation and bronzer stains from shirt collars? It does!

14 Cooking spray
Giving yourself a manicure? Grab a can of cooking spray from the kitchen after you’re done, and spray your nails from about six inches away. This helps dry the polish

15. Toothpaste
We’ve all heard the one about toothpaste getting rid of zits, but did you know it also can be used to whiten yellow? It works! Add in a few drops of lemon juice—a natural bleaching agent—for extra effects

16. Baby powder
Did you know that makeup artists use it to make eyelashes look long and full? Simply curl your lashes, apply one coat of mascara, dust a little baby powder along your top and bottom lashes with a Q-tip or makeup applicator, then add another coat
