Make the most of your favorite lipstick
Make your favorite tube of lipstick last by storing it at room temperature away from the heat. High temperatures could make the product melt. If the lipstick breaks in half, fuse the two pieces back together by carefully torching them with a lighter. Get as many wears from your lipstick as possible by reaching a Q-tip into the tube as it gets toward the end. These are makeup mistakes that make you look sloppy.
Revive a sticky nail polish
Opened nail polishes can last for years (two, to be exact, Annette Soboleski, a nail technician for polish maker OPI Products Inc, told Fitness), but that doesn’t mean they’ll maintain their original consistency. To keep your polishes going as long as possible, store them in a cool, dark space, and wipe the bottle neck with acetone after each use. If the polish gets thick or gooey, add a drop of nail polish thinner to the mix. In a pinch, nail polish remover will also work (though it’s not good for the polish in the long run). Try these brilliant uses for nail polish you never thought to try.
