Looking good is a must for everyone but it can quickly become prohibitively expensive. However, if you’re on a limited budget, you can easily choose to be a bit discerning by picking less-costly options that produce the results you want. The following are some of the best beauty tips that produce great results and can fit into your budget.

1. For the Perfect Pout

Before you apply any lipstick, take the time to prepare your lips so that you get a fuller, plumper, and smoother pout. You can easily do so by making a sugar scrub. Use two teaspoons of granulated sugar and mix it with one teaspoon of honey. Combine them together to make a thick paste and apply it to your lips using a toothbrush. Scrub in a circular motion for one or two minutes and then wash off. Your lips will be smoother and free of dead skin too.

2. The Most Effective Makeup Remover

Good makeup remover is a necessity but it is also expensive. On the other hand, the most effective makeup remover is probably sitting on your dressing table. Use Vaseline by rubbing a small amount on a tissue and wipe your makeup off. The best part is that even oil based makeup comes off with ease and it leaves your skin moisturized and soft as well.

3. Soothing Tired Eyes

Late nights and poor sleeping habits can easily leave your eyes feeling sore, puffy and tired. For a quick pick-me-up, put a tablespoon in your freezer. After 15 minutes, take it out and place the spoon on your eyes to help with the swelling. For the dark circles, try cutting two small slices of a potato and place them under your eyes. Leave for 15 minutes and then clean your face. Use for at least a week and your dark circles will begin to fade away.

4. Dry Shampoo Alternative

Got greasy hair and don’t have the time to wash it? Dry shampoo is going to be your best friend. On the other hand, if you don’t want to buy a dry shampoo every month, a good alternative is to opt for baby powder. Be sure to use a cornstarch-based baby powder as it is less likely to irritate your scalp. Apply the baby powder on your hair, much like you would use dry shampoo. Once you’ve applied it, use a brush to get rid of all the access powder. Not only will it absorb the access oil, it’ll also give you some added volume if you flip your hair down and brush it.

5. Spot Treat Acne

Acne problems occur at any time and sometimes it can be tough to get rid of one single pimple. If you don’t have any acne spot treatment items, just dab a little bit of toothpaste on to it. This helps to not only dry out the pimple but also forces unformed pimples to mature and get rid of them easily.
