Did you know that one of the best beauty tools can be found right smack dab in the middle of the stationery aisle? Yep, it’s true! Today I’m going to show you 3 amazing beauty uses for Scotch tape.
Scotch tape isn’t only useful for wrapping presents, it’s a handy tool for creating interesting nail art, removing errant glitter, and making fierce eye makeup designs. Here’s why you need to keep a roll of tape in your makeup kit.
Amazing Use #1 – Remove Glitter
A bit of tape grabs errant specks of glitter without disturbing your makeup. I learned this tip on the glitter battlegrounds many moons ago, and as a life long lover of glitter, I have appreciated this tip in a major way. It helps to apply the tape to the back of your hand a couple of times before hand to make it a bit less sticky.
Amazing Use #2 – Create Nail Art
While my nail art designs are a bit on the simple side, you can create sunbursts and all kinds of fancy things with tape. It helps to do this on an already dried mani, FYI! I don’t want to be held responsible for any nail art malfunctons!
Amazing Use #3 – Make An Eyeshadow Stencil
This is one of my favorite tricks – a piece of tape placed at the outer corner of your lids is an excellent stencil for both eyeshadow and eyeliner. It’s super easy and, as with my tip for removing glitter, I recommend making your piece of tape a little less sticky by dabbing it on the back of your hand a couple of times.
It’s a bit of an unusual beauty product, but tape really is a great beauty tool with a plethora of uses. Do you have any unusual beauty tips?
