[BEAUTY 101] Jangan buang maskara bekasmu!

Happy Friday, ladies!

Bagi pencinta eye makeup, mascara is a must-have beauty product. Beragam merek maskara, baik lokal maupun luar negeri dengan berbagai bentuk kuas memang bikin maskara selalu menarik untuk dicoba. Belum lagi klaim yang dijanjikan oleh maskara, mulai dari tahan air, mampu melentikkan, memanjangkan bulu mata, sampai menebalkan yang nggak pernah gagal bikin kita cewek-cewek kalap belanja maskara. 
FYI, PAO (Period After Opening) atau masa pakai dari maskara sejak dibuka hanya sekitar 3-6 bulan lho, ladies. Masa pakai ini akan semakin berkurang kalau kamu sering pompa maskara kamu keluar masuk botolnya, sehingga udara masuk ke dalam botol dan menyebabkan maskara kamu cepat kering. Kalau sudah begini, mau tidak mau maskara kamu harus dibuang. 

Punya maskara yang sudah kering dan tidak terpakai? Jangan langsung dibuang yaa ladies karena aku akan kasih 5 tips bagaimana caranya me-reuse brush maskara kamu.

1. Simpan brush maskara favorit kamu untuk mengaplikasikan maskara lain.

Beberapa merek maskara laris manis dibeli karena formulanya yang waterproof dan mampu menebalkan, memanjangkan, dan melentikkan. Tapi terkadang brush maskaranya kurang begitu bagus. So, simpan sikat maskara favoritmu dan gunakan lagi untuk maskara lain yang sikatnya kurang oke sehingga kamu tetap bisa mendapatkan hasil yang sempurna! 
2. Gunakan sebagai sikat alis.
Daripada kamu beli satu brush spoilee yang harganya hampir setara dengan 1 cup Frappucino Starbuck’s, mending kamu bersihkan brush maskara yang sudah tidak terpakai dan gunakan brush itu untuk merapikan alis. Hasilnya sama kece lho!
3. Gunakan untuk merapikan maskara yang menggumpal.
Sebel ngeliat bulu mata kamu yang menggumpal setelah mengaplikasikan maskara? Coba deh rapikan bulu mata kamu dengan brush maskara tidak terpakai yang sudah kamu bersihkan. Dengan brush maskara tersebut kamu bisa memisahkan bulu mata yang menggumpal satu per satu and voila! Mata kamu kini makin cantik dan siap untuk kedip-kedip genit. 
4. Gunakan sebagai lip exfoliator.
Bibir kamu kering dan pecah-pecah? Jangan kuatir, siapkan madu sedikit, oleskan ke bibir kamu lalu sikat dengan lembut menggunakan brush maskara kamu. Ingat ya, gunakan brush maskara yang sudah dibersihkan.There you go! Bibir kamu kini sudah lembab dan lembut. 

5. Gunakan untuk mengaplikasikan serum rambut untuk bulu mata.

Yap, we know lashes serum could cost a fortune! Jadi, kenapa tidak gunakan serum rambut kamu untuk bulu mata? Oleskan sedikit serum rambutmu pada brush maskara yang tidak terpakai lalu aplikasikan ke bulu mata seperti kamu mengaplikasikan maskara. Kini kamu bisa berhemat dan tetap mendapatkan bulu mata yang panjang dan sehat seperti rambutmu.

***
That’s all, ladies! Dengan menggunakan brush maskara bekasmu, kamu nggak cuma bisa berhemat tetapi juga membantu mengurangi sampah dan menjaga lingkungan. Semoga tips ini bisa membantu yaa… 
Thanks for reading!
1. Eyebrow brush
Some days when I wake up it’s pretty
obvious that my eyebrows had a conference in the night and decided to go
in different directions, or have an unruly day or my favourite – go all
bushy and weird making me look like an elderly gentleman mumbling into
his third whisky at the golf club. This sorts it.
2. Separating eyelashes
You’ve got too enthusiastic with the mascara, haven’t you Suzy, Gemma, Lorraine*, this will comb your eyelashes into individual eyelashes of wonder. MAGIC.
3. Removing clumpy mascara from lashes
We’ve all had this happen. Your new
mascara has come in the form of three clumps in a tube. Joy. But the
small amounts you do manage to get on your lashes make them look good,
so you’re going to push ahead and use it anyway. But damnation if it
doesn’t leave little clumps on your nose and eyelashes.
Getting them off whilst the mascara is still wet ends with your face
looking like you’ve just been down the pit and getting them off once the
mascara is dry means you run the risk of pulling your eyelashes
out…one…by…one. Use an old mascara wand to wiggle the clumps free whilst
the mascara is wet.

4. Delicate jewellery or beaded clothing
I have a beaded bag which loves to
collect dust and a mascara wand has saved it from becoming a dust-clad
testament to my slovenly ways. It also works well on the gaps between
beads on necklaces or earrings which can from time to time get a bit
dirty or worn looking.

5. Sort out your roots
For reals. This method is better than any
stupid little wand that comes in the packet. Because the wands tend to
have a bit of flexibility to them you can really work it into the root
and get even coverage.
6. Rid yourself of flyaway hair
My hair almost constantly looks like that
time in Science class when they make you stand on that thing and put
your hands on that other thing and your hair goes all sticky-outey…you
know, those THINGS. So spraying a bit of hairspray onto the bristles of
an old mascara wand and smoothing it over my hair sorts me out in no
time at all.
7. Clean taps 
You know the bit of the tap were the
water comes out (is there an obvious technical term other than hole?)?
That can get grim, really grim and gunky. MASCARA WAND TO THE RESCUE.
Work it in and around the tap and you’ll get the gunk out in no time at
all.

8. Unclog sinks
Lots of times when your sink is clogged
up, the stuff that’s clogging it up isn’t even that far down the pipe. A
quick swizz around with an old mascara wand can often sort it and when
you pull it back out you can either chuck that gross old noodle or eat
it. It’s up to you, you dirtbag.
