3 Beauty Products With Bonus Uses: Make-Up MacGyver

Get ready to MacGyver your beauty goodies....
This just may be the only time we like hearing the words: TWO-TIMER!
Here's a few extra uses for your beauty products that you may not have thought of. So the next time your traveling and have forgotten your eye cream or blush, here's what to do:

1. Lip Balm-
You can use this as an eye cream, on your cuticles to keep them soft, smooth a stray un-controllable hair, even your eyebrows and as an emergency ultra-moisturizer to soften the tough skin on your heels, elbows or knees!

2. Body Butter Or Body Lotion-
Forgot your fav hair smoothing cream on a trip or a date...apply a little lotion to your unruly strands, in a pinch.

3. Baby Powder- 
I only suggest a Talc-free powder like Baby Bee from Burt's Bees...
Besides just dusting inside your shoes for a blister free day, you can sprinkle some in the palm of your hands, and apply it to the roots of your hair with your fingertips, to absorb excess oil and give you a volumizing boost to your hair. Also, if you're out of face powder, a dusting of an organic or talc-free baby powder can be a great way to knock the shine right out of any oily spots on your face- it acts as a great translucent powder!

Let me know if you guys like the Make-Up MacGyver ideas?!?  I've got more fun uses for beauty goodies!

Here's to getting more bang for your beauty bucks....
huge hugs, your kandee

I don't know about beauty products, but I have used paperclips in my hair before, and once cut the crotch out of a pair of thick grey tights and wore them as a shirt underneath a dress.

Kandee, can tou show in your tutorial how to apply powder on the scalp please? Ive been wondering for years how it's done, i just can't picture it. Thanks! Love you! ❤

Kandee..Its so funny but I have used some of those tricks. I used to put lotion in my dolls hair to make it extra curly....lol...my mom called me little miss makeup. I also saw someone use Elmers glue like biore. Its non toxic. Just apply, dry, & Peel. I also use lotion to shave sometimes especially if i'm in a hurry. I've got tons of tricks. Have a great Sunday!

I use an eyelash brush to comb unruly baby-fine hair around my forehead, and a wet q-tip to smooth out my eyebrows (because I don't wear eyebrow makeup)

Tamara said...

Can you explain the elmers glue part in more detail? I'm truly curious!! Thanks. :)

About this post above. Yeah using lotion was always good to use as kind of a shave cream, but my mom always said use conditioner as shave cream. I actually think its better then shave cream because I really need moisture. Like big time. And this isn't really macguver thing but put your moisturizer in the fridge so its super cold on ur face, which will close ur pores even more.

You put glue on your face like a pore strip and get all the black head and sebum out it works just like the ones in the stores

Sometimes when I get a small grey hair coming out, before it's time to see my stylist ... I use brown brow powder. Of course, I have dark hair. I just dust some on a eye shadow brush, and then dust onto the showing grey hair.

I definitely going to use the moisturizer tip. Thank you!

Hi kandee, love all of your tips. I have
one for baby powder; because I am very large brested I use the powder under them to help pre
vent "boob sweat". It works great especially in the summer. Keep the tips comming please.!!!

Yes you put glue on your face in a semi thin layer let it dry and just Peel. Try it on the back of your hand first. Also the conditioner is a great in the shower trick but if u use lotion u don't have to wash it off so much and you don't have to shave in the shower. If you get a nick you can apply a little vaseline to stop any bleeding. : ) Awesome Blog Kandee Girl!

I have another great beauty tip Kandee. You can keep a little bowl or jar if u have little ones next to your bathroom sink filled with salt. This is a great way to exfoliate your hands when you wash them. Just gather a pinch of salt and add it to a pump of hand soap. Scrub and wash. I hope you like this one! Have a great day and God Bless Everyone!

Kandee I have another great trick for ya! You know when your at the very end of that favorite mascara or lip gloss and you see sometimes that there is some that u just can't get to well all u gotta do is remove the inside scraper. Its the little thing that controls how much u get out at each use. Now when you remove it make sure your ready because your in for slot more product. Ample lipgloss and mascara. It does make it a little more challenging to control how much comes out but its better than throwing it away! I hope you enjoy this one! :)
