This week on The Drive Home, we had a different beauty hamper from Mulligans Pharmacy in Waterford Shopping Centre Lisduggan to give away. To enter, you just had to share your beauty tips with us. We were inundated with some really interesting tips from Drive Home listeners, so we decided to share some of the tips here in case you missed any of them on air!
*Obvious disclaimer: not all tips will work for everybody – if there’s a possibility you’re allergic to any of the products or ingredients mentioned, don’t use them.
Here are the tips exactly as they came in from listeners:
Make up sponges soak up more liquid than what ends up on your face !! Use a foundation brush , u use way less foundation and it allows for more even and precise application than a sponge would !
To depuff your eyes another great beauty tip is using raw potato slices ….. no cucumber !!!! Ten minutes will do it.
Also make sure when painting nails u take off previous nail varnish with acetone based remover this removes extra dirt and oil leaving your new nail polish lasting longer!!
Also, freeze your eye liner … if it crumbles when putting it on put it in the freezer for 15 minutes before applying !! Vinegar will up the anti on shine in your hair !! Conditioner is softer than shaving foam on the legs makes it way easier to shave !!
Beauty tip Teresanne …. to get a more Radiant glow from your foundation add a drop of moisturising oil to your foundation and your make up will look fresh all day …
Beat egg whites and sugar together, to make a great natural face exfoliating treat
Setting spray is important to spray over your makeup.u can use this instead of powder.
Well teresanne one of the most important tips ….. Do eyemake before foundation in case of flecks, Mistakes can be rectified before destroying foundation !! Also , lavender can b used in the bath to alleviate stress tension and insomnia , it’s also used to treat acne
This beauty tip is for the younger girls out there if your looking for a tighter look on your skin use an ice cube on your face in the morning for 5 minutes just keep rubbing it in your face A few drops of baby oil added to your bath bath makes skin super soft
After u apply your make up to stop any shine .use talc powder just dust it on lightly with a bronzing brush it works wonders
If you have any makeup package or tube when you think it’s gone cut off the top and you’ll find loads more product than you thought inside or if it’s a bottle of mascara for example put it in a bowl of warm water and it’ll turn it back to liquid.
My beauty tip is for perfect hand and foot fake tan …..it’s awful to see really bad tan on hands and feet especially knuckles and toes so , get a medium size blusher brush and squeeze some fake tan I use bellamiamta it’s just brilliant onto the side of the sink and mix it with moisturiser just a little at a time and brush it onto your hands being careful with your knuckles do the same with your toes perfect tan every time
2 Beauty tips. Keep lipsticks in the fridge when on holidays to keep it from melting. Keep your nail varnishes in the fridge at all times to stop them going gloopy.
My tip is to help whiten teeth naturally, crush some strawberries to a pulp with some baking soda , apply the paste to your teeth with a soft tooth brush and leave on for approx 5 mins and rinse the natural acid in the strawberries helps whiten teeth
keep eye liner & eye brow pencils in the fridge, sharpens without breaking & holds shape for longer.
Nivea after shave balm for men works so well as a make up primer- it keeps it in place all day
For the guys use TOTAL shaving balm when wet shaving, wet face add 2 drops of TOTAL and get the perfect shave
For a cheap body moisturizer use baby oil all over before getting out of shower for silky soft skin
I like to use sudocream at night leave on wash of in d morning leaves skin so soft after n of course great for acne
use a surgical glove to apply fake tan, it will simply glide on & only use a fraction compared to the tanning mitt as it doesn’t absorb into the pile of the glove…
My best beauty tip is if you have any spots or burns run in Manuca honey It works wonders
My beauty tip is do your eyes after you prime skin , that way any fallout from the eyeshadow can be cleaned up with concealer and when you put on foundation . It gives a sleeker look.
