This is one of those ‘A-Ha!’ moments when you realize that the only beauty tool you need has been right under your nose (literally) all this while.
1. Push Back Your Cuticles
Run your hands under warm water for 10-15 seconds. Next, pat dry and without applying too much pressure use the tip of a spoon to gently push back your cuticles. This trick is especially helpful if you’ve forgotten to get a mani before heading out on business travel.
2. Get Rid of Puffy Eyes
On late nights and early mornings, keep a spoon in the freezer overnight so it gets nice and frosty. When you wake up, press the cold spoon against your under eye area for about 30 seconds and then repeat on the other eye.
3. Prevent Mascara from Getting on Your Lids
Hold the spoon above your eyelashes so that each time you swipe, your lid stays clean.
4. Reduce Swelling of a Pimple
First, apply a swipe of Witch Hazel to dry out the blemish. Take a spoon from the freezer and press down on the pimple to reduce swelling. Or, if you’re dealing with a whitehead: Run a spoon under hot water for 1 minute and press the spoon against your blemish. The heat helps to draw the pus inside the pimple up, making it easier to remove.
Press the stamp of the spoon against the bottom of your cheekbone to find exactly where to contour. Draw a line with your contour blush and blend.
