Try using coconut oil as a substitute for shaving cream
Whether it’s used as a make-up remover or for reviving dull hair, it can be said that coconut oil is a great multitasking product. It can also be valuable for shaving your body when you’re out of shaving cream. A lot of shaving creams fail to add the same level of moisture that coconut oil can and it leaves you with a subtle glow.

Silicone bra inserts can be used to blend your foundation
For those moments when you can’t find your beauty blender or if you’re just looking to mix up your routine, silicone inserts can be a valuable replacement to your usual makeup blending tool.
Save a broken lipstick with a little heat
If you come across a broken lipstick, do not fear, because it always has the potential to be salvaged. To repair your broken lipstick, melt the bottom of the broken piece with a lighter and the base. Then proceed to place the broken piece back onto the base so it can be smoothed out. After place the lipstick in the refrigerator so it can solidify and you can be reunited with your once broken lipstick.
