When do women need beauty tips the most?

For some of you, beauty tips may be the most helpful when you’re getting ready for a night on the town. But for even more women, beauty tips are needed the most when you’re on the go and don’t have the time to put the extra care into your look. That includes the beauty tips for moms who have to chase around a toddler but still want to look their best. Or when you wake up with only ten minutes to get ready for work.

But not to worry. As your personal beauty industry insider, I know three quick, cheap, and easy tips that’ll boost your look in a pinch.

Beauty Tip #1: Use Non-Toxic Household Oils as Emergency Lip Gloss

I bet you have plenty of lip gloss alternatives around the house. Olive oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, or pretty much any oil you can cook with will work. Petroleum jelly also leaves your lips soft and shiny.

My personal favorite beauty tip for chapped lips is to poke a small hole in a vitamin E capsule and rub it onto your lips. The vitamin E will protect your lips from the sun and may even help repair skin damage!

Beauty Tip #2: Give Your Hair an Irresistible Shine by Massaging it with Olive Oil

That perfect, glossy shine we see in hair care commercials seems like nothing but a fantasy for most of us. Changing your diet can make your hair healthier, but it’s just not the same as what we see on t.v. But it’s not impossible to give your hair that beautiful, smooth shine. Actually, this beauty tip doesn’t require anything that you probably don’t already have in your cupboard: olive oil.

Massage a tablespoon or two of olive oil into your scalp. Spread the oil throughout your hair, down to the ends. Then, cover your hair with a warm, moist towel. After about a half hour has passed, shampoo thoroughly to rinse out the oil. Repeat if necessary and style as usual.

And that’s it! That’s all it takes to get the shampoo model look, minus the cost of a luxury shampoo.

Beauty Tip #3: Get Beautiful Lashes by Heating Up Your Eyelash Curler

The beauty industry has come up with a dozen ways to make our eyelashes look longer, (some more expensive than others). But some of you may know that all you really need to make your lashes look longer is a good eyelash curler. But what if you took it a step further?

The secret to discovering the best beauty tips and tricks is to try to be creative with the tools you already have. You curl your hair with a hot iron, so why not your lashes? Just as the heat from your curling iron helps your hair hold curl, the heat from a hot eyelash curler will help your eyelashes hold curl.

You can heat your eyelash curler with a hair dryer or by running it under hot water. If you heat your lashes just before applying mascara, it will also prevent smudging.
