Are you in need of new beauty secrets? Here are 10 of Sacred Heart Universities favorite get beautiful-tips.


Secret #1- Ran out of makeup remover? Use baby lotion!

This will take off your make-up, especially clumped up mascara.


#2 – Save Your Mascara Wands!

Don’t throw away your Mascara wands after they are finished. Wash them and save them. They can be used as an eyebrow brush.


Secret #3 – Tweezing Tips

To help reduce the irritation and redness from tweezing, soften you skin before tweezing by dabbing a cotton ball with warm water around your eyebrow area. When you start tweezing, pull out the hair with a single motion going in the same direction as the hair is growing.


Secret #4: Don’t Pump Your Mascara!

When attempting to get mascara out of the tube, do not pump the wand (moving the want quickly in and out of the tube). This creates air in the tube, which dries out your mascara, and pushes the mascara to the sides of the tube. Instead, move the wand in a circular motion inside the tube before removing.


Secret #5:  No Nail Polish Remover? No Problem!

Lightly apply a coat of clear nail polish on top of the nail polish you want to remove. While still wet, wipe off you nail and you nail will be nail polish free. Tip: Never have chipped nail polish. Either have no nail polish or fully painted nails.


Secret #6: Freeze Your Eyeliner

Instead of fixing your eyeliner after it crumbles while applying, try this trick!

Put your eyeliner in the freezer 15 minutes before use. This will allow your eyeliner to glide on your eyelid smooth and easy.


Secret #7: Want Your Eyelashes To Curl More?

Slowly, move your hair drier back and forth over your eyelash curler for 5 seconds. Let your eyelash curler sit for 2 seconds. Carefully, curl your eyelashes. The curler will be extremely hot at this point. Use your judgment to determine if you need to allow the curler to cool off a few more seconds before moving to your eyelashes.


Secret #8: Cellulite Got You Down?

An easy way to reduce cellulite is right at your fingertips. After taking a warm shower to open your pores, rub coffee grounds all over your problem area. If needed, wrap with plastic wrap. Leave on for 20 minutes, and then wash off.


Secret #9: Funky Feet?

An easy way to eliminate unwanted foot odor is to completely dry your feet after coming out of the shower. This includes drying in between each toe.  Also, using hand sanitizer on your feet will eliminate the unwanted bacteria.


Secret #10: Bye Bye Greasy Hair

Running late and don’t have time to shower? Put a little bit of baby powder in your hair (by your roots) to reduce the grease in your hair. This is a temporary fix that can be used anywhere.

Tip: Keep a small bottle of baby power in your bag.
