3 Alterna-Uses For Your Ratty Old Lip Gloss

We all buy way too much lip gloss. Seriously, count ‘em all up; how many tubes/pots/bottles do you own? I buy gloss as an instant pick-me-up, to try out a trend but not spend too much coin, and of course, because they always seem to disappear (or get lost at the bottom of my various bags). So, with all of this gloss floating around, why not figure out a way to make it work beyond the usual smear-on-your-lips-when-going-out routine? Today, BellaSugar has done just that with three pretty genius tricks for using your gloss in new, different ways…Use it on your cheeks:

“For a dewy look, simply dab a bit of gloss on your cheeks. It’s an easy way to give yourself an instant fresh-faced glow.”

Try it on your eyelids:

“Have a pink lip gloss? Pat it on lids to create a subtle rosiness. Still not quite sure what to do with that black lip gloss? For a smoked-out, edgy effect, dot it on your lids and blend.”

And lastly, on your lips, but not like you think:

“To create your own custom color, simply tap an eye shadow or blush onto your lips. Then, just blend the color out with a clear- or neutral-toned gloss. Blue shadow, for instance, might sound cringe-worthy, but surprisingly, this cool-toned shade actually provides super-subtle, teeth-whitening results.”

Love that shadow trick! Got any other ideas? [BellaSugar]
