Easy Ways to Make Your Face Look Slimmer!

No one likes looking like a hippo. And if you’re like me, you’re too lazy to workout and food is too good to limit your eating. So here are some super easy, effortless ways to make your face look slimmer!

  1. Don’t chew a lot of super chewy food. So things like caramel, meat, toffee, and… GUM! Chewing works out the muscles in your jaws and all this excessive chewing can make these muscles get bigger. This’ll make your jaw look bigger, which will make your face look bigger. So choose foods that are easier to chew and use mints instead of gum.
  2. Don’t eat foods with a lot of sodium. Salt causes your body to retain water. This means that you’ll look more puffy and bigger because you’ve got so much water in you.
  3. Use bronzer! If you apply bronzer under your cheekbones and along your jawline, it’ll create the illusion of a smaller face. The shadows will make you look slimmer and more defined.

Easy right? Good luck with your new, slimmer looking face!

How to turn a scarf into a cardigan

If you remember I wore a scarf as a cardi on New Years and I decided that I might as well share my way of doing it. It’s super easy and looks pretty dece after wards. So if you need a cardigan and don’t have enough money (or are too lazy) to buy one, here a quickie solution!

What you’ll need:

  • scarf (any scarf that isn’t square. and remember: the wider your scarf, the longer your cardi)
  • pins

Fold your scarf in half and mark where the middle is. You can just use your fingers as a placeholder~

Fold the ends in so that they meet in the middle.

Pin the ends together and to the back of the scarf. I prefer to use two pins because it’s sturdier but you can you however many you want. You can also put them parallel, like I did, or put them in an X shape. Whatever floats your boat.

If you really dig your scarf as a cardigan, you can even sew it together. I just like to pin it because it means I can still use it as a scarf too. The more ways you can wear something, the better.

And viola! You’ve got a chic new cardi to wear around.

DIY Pore Strips

I haven’t used pore strips in forever, mainly because I’m too cheap to go out and buy them. That’s money that could be spent on food or clothes or make up or… food. Luckily, I found a DIY way to make your own pore strips and I had all the ingredients in my house, which was pretty awesome.

So you’ll need unflavored gelatin, milk, and a makeup brush that you won’t be missed. If you want to use a good brush, you can but it’s pretty hard to get all of the gunk off of it.

Take a tablespoon-ish of each of the milk and gelatin and mix together in a microwave safe dish.

Your mixture should be a little bit clumpy. If it’s a little more runny than mine, that’s fine. Heat up in the microwave for 10 seconds.

So your mixture will be blended together and runny when it gets out of the microwave. Some people find that it smells gross, so you might want to breathe out of your mouth for a while. Personally, I just think it smells weird not bad.

Next, check the temperature of the mix to make sure it’s not too hot and apply it to your nose area using the make up brush. You want a thin, even layer. Make sure you take extra care applying it on the outside curves of your nose!

Wait 10-15 minutes for the strip to dry. My layer was a little bit bumpy and thick in places, which means I had to wait longer for it to dry.

Once the strip is dry, peel it off and rinse off any cling ons. Viola! A gunk free nose!

Good Luck!
