Beauty Secrets???

HERE IS my beauty secret...(NO IDEA WHY OR HOW I STARTED)
I constantly get compliments on my eyelashes. Complete strangers will ask me if they are fake (which they are not)...so here is my secret to long, long, lashes....I BLOW DRY THEM!! I apply my mascara and while it's still wet, I turn my blow dryer on cold setting and blow dry them upward.

PLEASE SHARE ANY YOU HAVE

Re: Beauty Secrets???

Using baby shampoo for eyelashes also is good. It makes me lashes feel very soft and makes it nice for putting on mascara. I can't even remember where I learned that from, but I remember I thought the girl was strange. I actually tried it for myself and now I know why she used baby shampoo.

Re: Beauty Secrets???

Do you just put in on with your fingers or actually wash your eyes with it?

Re: Beauty Secrets???

You can wash your eyes with it, because its the tear free kind. I've used the Johnson and Johnson kind. It doesn't take a whole lot.. but I'd do it once make-up is off. I have tried it just using my fingers and then rinsing it off and that works just as well. I like it that way better

Coley1121,
I tried your eyelash blow drying trick and I have to say it works great! Wow, what a difference. This is a "keeper" suggestion. Thanks!
Cris

Re: Beauty Secrets???

Ditto on the blow drying technique! Awesome results! I put one coat of mascara on, blow dry up, then apply another coat - you're right! Almost looks like false eyelashes! Thanks!

Re: Beauty Secrets???

great idea, does work!!! I normally use hairdrier to heat eye lash curlers before using them, is good but not as good as this is!!!

Re: Beauty Secrets???

Here's a neat nail trick I learned a month ago.If you're not into fake nails and can grow yours out a bit,use White nail polish underneath your nail tips instead of on top.It feels kinda weird because I get polish on my skin around the nails but if I do it at night it peels off the next day and makes it look like you have naturally white nail tips.Also,add a coat of clear polish on top.A good way to clean your nails before you do this is to use tweezers to scrape off dead skin,etc under your nail tips.

Re: Beauty Secrets???

LauraLouise,

Apply your mascara (I do only one eye at a time, otherwise the mascara will dry too fast) while it's still wet, turn your blow dryer on a cooler setting and place the blow dryer close to your face, underneath your eye and blow dry the eye lash upward... once it's dry, move on to the other eye.

Re: Beauty Secrets???

Hmm... Queen Helene's Mint Julep mask. When I'm having a stressful week and I'm seriously broken out I slap this stuff on every night before showering and I'm clear in a few days. I have stubborn skin, too, so this stuff is my miracle. It's super cheap and quick.

Re: Beauty Secrets???

I'm sure this has been said and said again, but it needs to be: Vaseline on the eyelashes every night. (Makes those eyelashes beautiful and lush and also moisturizes around your eyes which is VERY important). Good coat of mascara in the mornings after you've washed your face? MAGIC!

Re: Beauty Secrets???

Lets see...for pimples (can't believe i still get them) i get a cottonball and some Sea Breeze, then keep it on for about 15 minutes. Take it off and your pimple should be gone! if not keep doing it until it goes down.

Want your eyes to look bigger? Wen you apply eyeliner put some right above your eyelash, and follow it a little past where your eye ends. Your eyes will instantly look bigger!

Some do's and don'ts
never fill in your eyebrows with black
always use a brown shade

never wash your face with liquid or bar soap
I use Apricot Scrub or facial cleaners

never bleach your skin (it makes you look pale )
to even out my tone I use Cocoa Butter Formula

I wouldn't buy a face mask
Instead I use egg yoke (apply a thin layer over your face and let it set overnight. Wash completely and your skin is so soft)

I also use egg yoke for my hair after applying the shampoo. When you wash it out then apply the conditioner. Egg yoke makes your hair stronger which means it will grow faster!

Re: Beauty Secrets???

hmm. Let see.

Aloe Vera gel for any kind of irritated red skin. I use it for rosacea.

Aspirin mask or scrub for blackheads and tightening up pores.

I use the fat powder brush instead of the blush brush for blush or bronzer. It goes on with much softer edges that way. And I never use powder anyway.

If your skin is oily, use an oil absorbing lotion or moisturizer or blotting papers. Powder can make your skin all dry and flaky, yet still be just as oily. That happened to me once in high school and a friend told me this. I haven't used powder since.

Use conditioner or shampoo/conditioner in one to shave legs. Works great.
