In a pinch, women have to be resourceful when it comes to beauty. This week, we've rounded up the top five beauty fixes and DIY style tricks.
#1) Wipe out bad hair
When oily locks creep up and the nearest bottle of dry shampoo is miles away, simply grab a wet wipe, you know the kind that you get in individual paper packets, and run the wipe over bangs as well as oily patches that frame the face. The alcohol in the wipe will dry up oil helping your hair 'do survive another few hours on the go.
#2) Powder your nose
If you find yourself shining on-the-go with no face powder in sight, step into the nearest ladies room to divert your beauty disaster. Paper toilet seat covers work nearly as effectively as the blotting papers often sold in the cosmetic aisle to eradicate shine. No toilet seat covers available? In a pinch, use a piece of toilet paper to absorb excess oil. A tip: Always use the side of the paper facing down to avoid germs.
