Beauty bloggers spill their tricks

Even the most experienced makeup artists and stylists read beauty blogs for new tips. From washing your hair with beer to a new use for toilet seat covers, these weird tricks are really, really good.

“Before I fly, I dab Los Poblanos Albuquerque lavender salve (which has antibacterial properties) on the inside of my nostrils. I have no proof, but I’m convinced it protects me from germ-infested airplane air!”
—Nadine Jolie, blogger and author, (NadineJolie.comBeauty Confidential)

“I occasionally wash my hair with beer!  It sounds crazy but beer contains proteins that are proven to help repair hair that’s been damaged by the sun, chlorine, etc. and it also does an amazing job cleansing my scalp.”
—Jamie Stone (QueenoftheQuarterLifeCrisis.com)

“As long as I can remember, I have been using Vicks Vapor Rub for a multitude of beauty related issues.  I use it on my hands and feet to get rid of any nail fungus I may have contracted from a dodgy mani/pedi (it totally works).  I also dab it on my cheeks in the winter before I go out if it’s below freezing—it keeps my cheeks from getting dry in the cold!”
Lianne Farbes (TheMakeupGirl.net)

“I use the Canadian version of Preparation H to smooth the crow’s feet!”
Zippy Sandler (ChampagneLiving.net)

“I have very oily skin. Yet, I can never seem to remember to put blotting papers in my purse. If my skin gets shiny while I’m out, I’ll head to the bathroom and use toilet seat covers to blot away excess oil.”
Sydne Summer (SydneStyle.com)

“I love my natural color in the summer. It’s a rich chestnut with auburn highlights, but in the winter it’s downright mousy. I add freeze-dried coffee grinds to my conditioner, let it sit for 10 minutes as I shave my legs and do other things, and then rinse. My hair is tinted a rich, chocolate brown by the time I’m out. The best part is it smells great and washes out in one to two shampoos.”
—Bryce Gruber (TheLuxurySpot.com)

“This sounds strange, I know, but immediately after applying lipstick I put one finger in my mouth, close my lips around it and draw it out (like a lollipop).  It removes any pigment from my inner lips that would otherwise smudge on my teeth when I smile.”
—Jeannine Morris (BeautySweetSpot.com)

“For those drastic moments when acne rears its ugly head, look no further than your kitchen!  One of the best and strongest astringents/ acne fighting treatments is Apple Cider Vinegar.  Simply pour a little bit on a cotton ball and apply to the face as you would a toner.  It is very powerful, and a little stinky, but well worth it for the results! I will take smelling like a salad over a face full of acne any day.”
—Christina Farrell (TheMakeupBlogger.com)

    • After Being Stared Down by a Couple in Cracker Barrel, This Dad Received a Note About Parenting

      When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast. "Today your meal is on my wife and me," it read. "Enjoy that baby as long as God intends.

McAfee has been in Indianapolis since 2009, so he’s seen the inner workings of this organization before and during the Grigson years.

    • Here's what Trump's executive order really means for Obamacare

      In one of his first official actions, President Trump signed an executive order late Friday that directed federal agencies to use their authority to relieve individual Americans, businesses, state governments and others from “burdens” placed on them by the Affordable Care Act. The Trump administration and its Republican allies in Congress billed the order as a first step in their push to repeal Obamacare. So, does this mean the new president has scrapped the 2010 healthcare law “on Day One,” as he once promised he would do? Or is this just more talk from the new president? As with everything about Obamacare, it’s complicated. Here’s what Trump’s order did, and what it didn’t do. Has Obamacare

The earliest of them were designed to remove protections for middle-class homeowners, appoint people to his cabinet in contravention of law, freeze regulation of businesses, and make a symbolic gesture against the Affordable Care Act. So far, he has not yet begun construction on his border wall or begun to deport undocumented immigrants. He had previously promised to do both things in the first hours after taking office. Chief among the orders was one that allowed confirmation of Trump's nominees for defense secretary and homeland security secretary. James Mattis and John Kelly, respectively, were
