Cosmetic corporations make fortunes off of people who are trying to improve their appearance as much as possible. However, with just a little imagination and daring, you can save yourself a ton of money. There are all kinds of inexpensive, everyday items lying around that you can use to enhance your beauty tricks. Cucumbers and teabags are just two of the items you can put to good use. However, the premiere household goody to aid you in your makeup routine is the common, yet wonderful, spoon. Actually, it’s a great idea to keep a spoon right in your makeup kit.
Repair Your Makeup
You know how it is when you drop your purse or your cosmetics bag. All that’s left are pieces of blush and powder. Sometimes a lipstick is no longer intact. How frustrating! However, with the help of a handy spoon, you can repair your valuable cosmetics in a jiff!
Get Your Mascara Just Right
It’s been said that ladies should never leave the house without lipstick and mascara. One thing is for sure, though. A lady should always get the most out of her mascara miles every day. A spoon can aid in this. Simply place the edge of the spoon on your skin beneath your lashes. Then, as you apply your mascara, press down on the spoon so that you get solid coverage.
Aside from helping you get great coverage with your mascara, a spoon can help you curl your lashes beautifully. The spoon is a regular eyelash helper! Simply place a spoon on your eyelid and gently push your lashes over the edge. This will curl your lashes just as well as an eyelash curler.
Get the Perfect Contour
Contouring can really make your face pop if done correctly. However, if you’re off the mark even a little contouring can actually make you appear…well, odd. A spoon can help you to get proper placement every time. Rest your beauty spoon on the apple of your cheek. The bottom of the spoon will be the perfect place for your contouring powder to be applied!
A Cat’s Eye
Everyone wants to master the exotic, sexy cat’s eye. However, keeping lines in place is no easy task. Your spoon can help you! Cover your eye with the bowl of the spoon and the handle at an angle toward the outside corner. Use this to draw a perfectly straight line. Liquid eyeliner works great! Then you can alter your spoon handle’s placement slightly to draw your second line.
Fix Your Lips
It’s second nature to use your fingers to get rid of that pesky extra lipstick that’s just inside your lip line. After all, no one wants the dreaded lipstick teeth of death. However, your fingers really need to remain clean as you apply makeup. This protects your pores from infection. Insert your spoon into your mouth, and gently pull it out while letting it touch your lips. This will remove any excess lipstick inside your lip line.
