4 Beauty buys, you never thought of

Run out of something? Try these four items out when you are at the end of the line with your everyday products. These products are a quick fix when you can't make it to the store, and they are likely to already be stowed away in your bathroom.

1. JELLO: 2 winters ago I remember dabbing my lips with a deep fuchsia lipstick, leaving it on till I was ready to leave the house, and wipe it off, to create a lip stain underneath my much needed chap stick. Now that I think about it, it kind of was a waste of a good lipstick. So what's a better, cheaper, tastier way to get a lip stain? Jello. Just like kool-aid when it gets on your moistened hands, Jello on moistened lips will create a lip stain that you can wear with or without lipstick.  Wear it with lipstick and your red lips will really pop.

2: PEPTO-BISMOL: Running out of your favorite toner? Pore tightening cleanser? Check your medicine cabinet for Pepto Bismol. Why? Pepto Bismol smeared on your face as a face mask will help tighten your pores. Although it works, it can be drying and shouldn't be used as an everyday routine, but for a quick fix, it's definitely worth trying.

3. DRY IDEA: On a hot summer day you are definitely gonna need some antiperspirant. But what about when your face sweats? Your face has tons of sweat glands, and why not try using some fragrance free, clear antiperspirant. Sounds weird right? But no one will know if you don't tell them, but why wouldn't you want to share. On a clean face wipe a thin layer over the parts you sweat the most, then apply your make up. Be sure to test a small patch of skin to make sure that it doesn't cause irritation to your skin

4. VISINE: You know how Visine reduces redness in the eyes? Well, that's not all it works for. Visine is a Vasoconstrictor, in other words, it shrinks blood vessels. Try dabbing some on a blemish, to reduce redness, put under your eyes to reduce dark circles and puffiness.
