Makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff dips a long, previously lit match in water and uses it to line the eye. “It’s chalky and black, so you get these amazing kohl-rimmed eyes, just like the ancient Egyptians had.”

Fekkai hairstylist Adir Abergel is known to mix a pinch of Kosher salt with a few drops of water, which he adds to leave -in conditioner. “It’ll give you the beachy waves you’ve always wanted,” he says.

And according to Fiona Stiles, celebrity and editorial makeup artist, hairspray not only holds hair in place…it also keeps makeup intact. Holding the can at arm’s length, spritz a fine mist on your finished face (close your eyes first). Makeup won’t melt, says Stiles. Test a spot first to make sure you’re not allergic, and remember to take it off before bed.

Are you tempted to try any of these beauty home remedies?

    I'll admit – I've heard of the hairspray thing before & tried it… it seems to work! I haven't had a major problem of make-up-run since 🙂 But I am a big time hairspray lover and the smell doesn't ever bother me.

    Now on to the kosher salt & leave in conditioner thing, I'll let you know of the results.

    Thanks Daneen!

    I *have* to try that hairspray trick… Too drying for my strands but could be the perfect remedy for my oily made-up face!

    I’ve read about this trick recently! Very odd, but good cheap trick! I like that! I think it’d probably be more preferable however to find one of those large, smudgy kohl sticks to light one of those in the morning, and fumble with it.
