9 Clever Beauty Hacks

  1. Tired of needing to reapply your makeup throughout the day? Try adding a light, translucent powder onto your face after you’ve finished applying the rest of your makeup. The use a facial setting spray! Voila! No more touch-ups necessary!
  2. If you’d like your lips to look their fullest, add a few drops of peppermint oil to your lip gloss. It will plump up the lips a bit and add a lovely, refreshing scent!
  3. Has it been a few days since your last hair washing but you don’t have time for a full shower right away? Invest in some dry shampoo to absorb some of the excess oil. Enjoy locks that look fresh again!
  4. Want to do your own at-home French manicure? Wrap a rubber band around your nail as a guide for the white tips!
  5. When filling in your eyebrows with a pencil, avoid long, heavy-handed strokes. Instead, use many small, feather-light strokes. And then blend, blend, blend!
  6. If your mascara is a little clumpy, consider adding a few drops of contact solution! It will help loosen it up a bit and get rid of all the clumps!
  7. Looking for a natural way to remove your makeup? Look no further than your kitchen! Coconut oil works wonders in dissolving makeup and removing dirt & debris.
  8. Want your hair style to last all day? Spray your bobby pins with hair spray before you insert them into your hair. No more fly-away hair!
  9. Is your hair looking a little thin or are you suffering from hair loss? Try KerMax™, which is a drug-free solution to hair loss that can be obtained over-the-counter! This product can help restore confidence and boost self-esteem of those suffering from hair loss.


Manufactured in France with natural ingredients, KerMax™ reduces the appearance of thinning hair & hair loss. It even makes new hair growth possible!
