Tips & Tricks: Beauty dilemma’s – solved!

Whether you have a beauty dilemma or you’re just picking up some new tips & tricks of the trade. You won’t be disappointed!

Problem: I love my [insert high-street shop here] costume jewellery but they always leave me with a green [delete as appropriate] neck/wrist/finger/earlobe.

Solution: Don’t worry. This really, really works…

Simply get some clear nail varnish, or the nearest to clear you have, and coat it all around the underneath of the jewellery (basically the bits that you don’t see but touches your skin). For example, on a ring, all around the band and underneath the design: It works a treat. No more green fingers!

Problem: You can see there’s lipgloss in the tube, yet you can’t get it out. How annoying!

Solution: Pour boiling water into a mug, drop the lipgloss tube in it for a couple of minutes (leave the end with the lid at the top & make sure you can still pick it up). The heat will loosen up the product and will unstick so you can scoop the rest out. (This also works with Mascaras in tubes – or anything else gel-like).

Problem: Your nail varnish won’t dry and you need it to – quickly!

Solution: Sounds crazy but trust us here. Coating your wet nails in cooking spray will help them dry very quickly. ‘Frylight’ is probably the most popular one you’ve heard of. (Just make sure you use the original flavour to avoid garlic-y finger-tips!) The normal one doesn’t smell at all and it’s just a case of wiping away the excess oil after.

Problem: But I don’t have cooking spray in my house?!

Solution: Don’t worry! Something you definitely will have is ice. Everyone has ice. After painting your nails, simply slide your nails into a bowl of ice water and after a minute (brrr) your nails will be completely dry! Not only this, but any smudges or mistakes you made will have fallen off. Score.

Problem: My feet are sore/achey/flakey – but I can’t afford to get a pedicure/it’s midnight and going to get a pedicure now is highly inappropriate.

Solution: Whatever your situation, you want soft, healthy feet again right? Well have you got some socks & some moisturiser or Vaseline? Good. Simply douse, smother and pile on your choice of moisturiser to your feet. [It doesn’t even have to be an expensive/high-end one] – pull your socks over and leave for a couple of hours. For best results, do this before your go to bed and pull off your socks in the morning – you will revel in the difference, promise.

Problem: None! Because abeautybag has solved them all.

Heeheehee.

You’re welcome.
