I thought it would be fun to purge your conscience of beauty sins or just own up to a trick that you’ve kept to yourself. Maybe you’ve done something to get yourself by in a beauty emergency – share it!
In honor of being a sport, I polled some friends and got their confessions to get things started. Yes, I am guilty of some of these too! (Some names were changed out of honoring privacy.)
Camilla – I’ve turned pimples into moles! When I had a hard to cover blemish, I used a brow pencil to turn it into a beauty mark a la Marilyn Monroe.
Trixie – I’ve used Kool Aid as a lip stain. I also sleep in my makeup. Finally, I used a highlighter in place of lipstick after I overslept and did my makeup in the bathroom at the office.
Blanche – I have a trick I haven’t shared because I always thought it was a little weird… I line my lips with a white liner and blend it in toward the center of my mouth lip. I then use some lip gloss or lipstick to cover it. I think it’s like a primer/concealer for my lips.
Vida – I am way too cheap to shell out extra money on BB or CC creams. I make my own at home. I take my favorite foundations and mix it with sunscreen and a wrinkle cream.
Chi Chi Rodriguez – I used to work for a local salon. On several occasions I witnessed the owner pouring nail polish remover into polishes. It dilutes them and you use less when applying. However, it totally effects the strength of your mani/pedi. It’s a double whammy. They don’t have to replenish polishes as often and you have to come back sooner for another paint job. I was able to quit a summer later, but I kept my mouth shut to keep my job. It’s not my proudest moment, but I won’t hesitate in warning their customers now.
