Revive Your Mascara

Add 4-5 drops of saline solution to a flaky mascara bottle. Insert the mascara wand and stir it getting the excess mascara off the sides of the bottle. You can do this 3 or 4 times without having to buy more mascara.

Use Mascara as Eye Liner

When you run out of eyeliner, don't need to run to the store. You can use your mascara as eyeliner instead. Rub a thin brush over the mascara wand and then use it to line your eyes. This works best when your mascara is the same color as the eye liner that you typically use. If not it is a great way to get a new pop of color on your eyes.

D.I.Y. Bronzer

Bronzer can be expensive, but if you have a well-stocked kitchen you can make a do-it-yourself bronzer for pennies with a few common ingredients. Mix 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of cocoa and 2 teaspoons of cornstarch together and your bronzer is ready!
