Unconventional Hollywood Beauty Tricks
Elmer’s Glue: A Blackhead Beauty Fix
I’ve been on many red carpets where 911 beauty emergencies are the rule, including little blackheads that seem to pop out of nowhere. Want a quick fix? Grab some regular old Elmer’s glue & put a thin coating on the area. When it dries, rip it off. No more blackheads.
Verdict: I tried it and it works.
Red Jello-O As Lipstick
Remember when you were 10 and your mother had a cow if you tried on her makeup? Well, there was one trick she couldn’t get mad about involving Jell-O. A little red Jello-O on your lips is a way to make the red last for a really long time. Makeup artists actually do this with stars going to a big event when they dip their fingers into the Jell-O powder and apply it. If you add a little bit of gloss on top then it becomes your own va-va-voom red.
Verdict: It works, but too much fuss. Why not just invest in a great red lipstick that’s not sticky like Jell-O.
A Toilet Seat Cover to Get Rid of Shine — Fast
You’re running to a red carpet event and it’s so darn hot outside that even the best makeup job won’t stay. Suddenly, your skin has a fine shine, which looks dreadful on TV. You don’t want to wash off your makeup and start again. If you’re over 40, you REALLY don’t want to cake up with powder, which is aging. Instead, take a toilet seat cover; yes the kind you find in any public bathroom. Press it into the offending oily area and it removes the shine, but not the makeup.
Verdict: Tried and it works wonders. It’s a great fast fix.
A Dot of Visine to Zap a Zit Quickly
Unconventional Hollywood Beauty Tricks-Visine originalGot a zit and a big event? This is no time to pile on some coverup that just draws attention to the offending eruption. If you have half a day then put a dab of white toothpaste on the zit to dry it up immediately. If you have less time, then put a dot of Visine or nasal spray on the pimple to shrink the blood vessels, get rid of the red and decrease the puff.
Verdict: All of the above are fabulous fast ways to get rid of the problem.
Fish Eggs to Beat Stretch Marks
If you have some stretch marks, stars have been known to eat fish eggs to combat the problem internally. This does work, says Jillian, because eating foods like fish or their roe (eggs) can help keep collagen and elasticity healthy before you get the stretch marks. It doesn’t “cure” old stretch marks.
Verdict: Sounds good, but not entirely practical.
A Leech to Get Rid of Toxins
Yes, there are stars who believe that leeches are a way to get rid of toxins. Personally, the leeches scene in “Stand By Me” had me running for the hills. By the way, experts say that this not only doesn’t work for humans, but it only feeds the leeches. All together now: Ewww.
