What do glue sticks, apple cider vinegar, banana peels and beets all have in common!?!? I put them all on my face in the name of beauty! I had the chance to be on CBSLA recently sharing some unconventional beauty hacks. The first one is glue sticks! Yup. Apparently Beyonce’s makeup artist uses glue sticks to hold her eyebrows in place. I know several makeup artists who also use glue sticks to make their eyebrows disappear so they can re-draw them. This is typically done in drag makeup or if you’re trying to do like a 1930’s thin eyebrow.
The second one is Apple Cider Vinegar. Warning- this is on the smelly side! BUT it does a great job of brightening your skin. My thoughts are if it’s good for the inside of your body, then it’s probably good for the outside of your body.
The third is banana peels! Admittedly you won’t see drastic results, unless you keep it up for a LONG time and avoid anything that makes your teeth yellow, like coffee, red wine or green tea. Why not try it after you finish your banana!?! Lastly, beets! If you’ve diced beets for a salad or roasted them, you know they stain your hands and fingers. Well, guess what!? They also stain your cheeks and lips. Obviously this isn’t going to be something that you keep in your makeup bag, but I always think it’s fun to experiment with food and beauty. It can’t hurt!
Watch the short segment below on CBSLA and let me know if you have any crazy, weird, unique, cool beauty hacks of your own!
