20 Something Moms 20 Something Moms
I LOVE learning new things!

So, let's all share our beauty tips!

Here's a few of mine.....

1. To learn to french braid: GO TO YOUTUBE!

2. If you but an eyeliner that isn't quite as "dark" as you'd like it to be: use a lighter to slightly warm up the tip.

3. If you lose your "summer glow" in the winter, BUY BRONZER! (I seriously used to look like a ghost in the winter & JUST learned about bronzer last year).

4. If you have a "round" or "chubby" face, run blush or bronzer ABOVE your cheek bone & down your jaw line, it will give the illusion that you have a more structures face.

5. STOP wasting your money on shaving cream! USE CONDITIONER! Especially in your no-no spots! ;) You'll thank me later!

OK, your turn! Whatcha got?

Spoons in the freezer to help with puffy bags under your eyes.

Lemon juice rinse after you shampoo to bring out blonde highlights, vinegar or beer to make it soft. I have a nice half and half of vinegar and lemon juice. I'll shampoo, rinse then put in a little mix, then shampoo again and add in more mix and it really makes the shampoo foam up nice! Then I'll condition. It's a process and you'll smell like a salad but it's so worth it!

If you are out of blush or want an extra shimmer use a shimmery eye shadow for blush. I've also seen lipstick used for blush. Put a spot on and rub it in to make it light and even

Never ever buy a mask!! Your kitchen has everything you need for almost any skin need! Just google recipes! Moisturize! Even people with problem skin and breakouts.... If you don't, your skin will naturally produce more oil to over compensate.

white sugar and baby oil is a great exfoliant for legs and arms, I've heard brown sugar and olive oil is good for your face :)

I tried this once and I couldn't do it! I just couldn't get the hair to roll down and the sock to stay in place.

Quoting lenoxclan:

want curls? Take a old sock, cut toe off, roll it up..

Using spray bottle spray hair damp(not dripping)put in pony tail at VERY top of head. Take the tips of hair and place through sock, now roll(much like you rolled sock)hair to crown.

Sleep on it (which is why its in a high pony tail)in morning unroll and you have curls!

also makes a perfect bun(using sock)

i soft headed electric toothbrush is awesome for your face :)

felt tip eyeliner is an easy way to get a nice straight line that wont smear or run later on. its especially great if you like to wing tip the end of your eye line.

eye shadow and face primer is worth the money if its good. i use less makeup and it stays looking great longer because of it.

use a brush to apply liquid foundation. it really does make a difference.
