Beauty Tip A day Giveaway!

It’s time for some of my favorite beauty tips.One of them is from the widget and the other ones are my personal favorite beauty tips.

If you happened to miss my previous post, I have a really cool Beauty Tip of the Day widget on the bottom of my blog. You should check it out! A new tip is posted on it every single day!

Tip #1- Treat your eyelashes with a dab of Vaseline every day for darker, conditioned eyelashes.

Tip #2-When you use thick foundation add a little bit of moisturizer on your palm and mix it with the foundation to thin it out. I know some companies make thick foundation and that was how I would thin it out. You could really do that with any foundation for extra moisturizing.

Tip #3- Toothpaste works wonders on pimples. Make sure you only use the paste kind and not the gel. Rub a dab on your pimple and let it dry and in the morning the pimple will shrink. Make sure you wash it off though.

Tip #4- This next tip comes from my grandma Rose. She used to have really dry eye lids. She would put Vaseline on them and they would be moisturized.

Tip #5- You can cut facial cloths (both wet and dry) to maximize use and cut down on the cost some.

There are 5 of my favorite beauty tips. Please make sure you check out my beauty widget on the bottom of my blog for many more beauty tips and tricks. Make sure you check it everyday for a new tip!
