Makeup tip: Three ways to use Vaseline

Busy people, like us, just don’t always have time for a beauty routine every morning. We wake up late, have class early or just don’t really feel like getting ready. This doesn’t mean we have to leave the house not feeling great about the way we look! Not when you have Vaseline, ready and eager to fix all your beauty problems. The multi-purpose petroleum jelly is an easy way to give yourself a confidence boost to slay the day. Basically, busy people need Vaseline.

Vaseline is a lifesaver if you’re on the go or you need something quick to add a little pep to your step. This product can do wonders for cracked, winter-affected lips. It’s so hydrating, giving your lips a comfortable, soft feel, but the best part is you can buy it tinted! So just swipe some pink tinted Vaseline onto your lips to add some stress-free color, without worrying about it smudging all over your coffee mug. It’s a simple way to look a little more alive in the morning as you drag your body to class.

Another amazing use for Vaseline is one only for the brave of heart; Vaseline as a highlighter. I know, it seems odd to rub petroleum jelly across your cheekbones, but it will be worth it when you see the natural Zendaya-esque glow it gives you! Swipe a small amount anywhere you would normally want to highlight and blend to your heart’s content. It gives you subtle, natural-looking dewy skin and is perfect for all skin tones. The best part is you don’t have to worry about accidently touching your face and messing up your makeup throughout the day.

Vaseline can also be used on your eyelashes. I admit this can feel weird, especially if you apply too much. It can make your eyes feel heavy, and we definitely don’t need another excuse to close our eyes. So take a small amount on the tip of your finger and simply rub in an upward motion on your eyelashes. This will give them a little shine that will draw more attention to your eyes, making the lashes look longer. Vaseline is also thought to make eyelashes grow, so you’re looking good throughout the day and growing longer hairs on your eyelids all at once!

Overall, Vaseline is the college student’s best friend because of its natural beauty-inducing powers. It contains an endless amount of ways to make your mornings easier, improve your beauty routine, and boost your confidence.
