There will come a time when even you, Miss Always Fresh As A Dasiy, will run into a little beauty bag snafu. As a busy woman, you don’t have time for melt downs- especially those having to do with your appearance. Luckily for you, I earned the nickname “MacGyver” at a young age when one of the straps on a girlfriend’s homecoming dress decided to boycott the dance (and her date). I whisked her into the restroom, detached the other strap, and turned her frock into a halter. Crisis averted- let’s dance! From that point on, I knew I had a gift. A gift to share with the world… or at least my closest gal pals and you lovely ladies. Below are a few of my tried and true quick fixes that are sure to save you from sweating in a less than ideal situation.
Problem: No Eyeliner
Solution: Eyeshadow! Use a dark shade of eyeshadow, wet a makeup brush (smaller is better), and draw on your very own liquid eyeliner. I actually do this most of the time rather than using real eyeliner.
Solution: iPhone! I knew technology would come in handy for something other than Facebook stalking and What’sApp’ing! Use the camera on your iPhone as a mirror (there is a little flip-a-roo on there that will spin the lens around).
Problem: Bra Straps showing
Solution: Safety Pin! Okay, so if your mom didn’t buy you those “As Seen on TV” strap converters like my mom did (thanks, Mom!), the fastest way to convert your straps is with a safety pin. You can also use a rubber band and knot it.
Problem: Horrifying pimple
Solution: Glob of Toothpaste! Okay, so most people probably already know this- but I swear it works better than most drugstore drying agents. Just make certain to wipe it off before answering the door or heading out. Awkward.
See, now you will start thinking about what everyday items can be used as feminine superpowers. What are some of your favorite fast fixes? (We’ve all got a little MacGyver in us!)
