Beauty uses of cotton buds



Q-tips or cotton buds can no longer be subjected to cleaning the ears because it has over 10 make up uses.

  • To get thicker lashes. If your lashes are scanty and you want them to be fuller, start by applying a coat of mascara then use a q-tip to apply some baby powder to the eyelashes. To finish seal it up with another coat of mascara to get full lashes.
  • To adjust make-up to your preference or correct a mistake. The key is not to use it dry or to wet it with saliva or water. It works perfectly when you wrap a fast cleansing make up wipe around it to make it moist, remove the wipe and adjust your make up error as you please with the Q-tip. This can be used for reducing concealer around the brows, cleaning up mascara mistakes, correcting or adjusting eyeliner and eyeshadow.
  • To curl your lashes. If you don't have a lash curler, you can use a q-tip to push your lashes in place. First, you apply two coats of mascara, then use the pressure of the middle of the q-tip to apply pressure to wet lashes. Hold till lashes get dried to achieved the curled position desired.
  • To clean off excess nail polish. Applying coats of nail polish by yourself can be very challenging. We tend to apply nail polish to our skin giving it a rough appearance. Do not worry, dip a Q-tip into nail polish removing liquid and carefully clean off the excesses and all would be perfect.
  • To pop a pimple. I know popping a pimple is very nasty, painful and sometimes it scars. The use of Q-tip and hot water makes it easier. First was your face with some hot water the use 2 Q-tips and press them against the zit towards each other. The content would be easily released.
  • To avoid lipstick bleeding. People with v-shaped cupid bow like mine always experience lipstick bleeding. This can be avoided with q-tip and some translucent powder or highlighter whichever one that is preferred.  Use the 1-tip to outline the lip with the powder or highlighter, it would help to define the lip line.
  • To apply glue to false lashes. Q-tip is easier and better in applying glue to false lashes because it can control the amount being applied and it is very easier to get precision in application.
  • To fix scuffs on patent accessories. We all love patent bags and shoes but patent materials get scuffed easily. You can use a q-tip dipped in nail polish removing liquid to rub the top of the scuff. It reduces its visibility.
  • To fix a stuck zipper. Don't you just hate when your zipper gets stuck and you can't take the outfit off? I really hate moments like that. However, dip a q-tip into shampoo and run it across the jammed zipper. The shampoo acts as a lubricant that loosens the zipper.
  •  To create nail arts. This is my personal favourite because I love nail arts. Remove the wool from the straw-like plastic, dip plastic in nail polish to create polka-dots designs.
These are the first 10 uses of q-tips that came to my mind. Basic but extremely useful.

Story Time: How I got my battle scars (Part 1)

Story Time: How I got my battle scars Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog. I know many of you that have seen me in real life or have seen my pictures have questions about my scars. I'd have questions too if I was in your shoes. To note, putting myself out there like this is new to me but I believe my story will bless and inspire someone. It is a story of victory, deliverance, overcoming tragedy and experiencing God’s intentional love. 


Romans 8:28 (TPT) So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together to fit into God's perfect plan of bringing good into our lives, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfil his designed purpose.

How I went from being ashamed to being confident with my scars!

A lot of people reached out to me and said they were moved to tears as they read my story, others said it helped them to stop complaining and become more grateful. Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement, God bless you richly. This is the finale of how I got my battle scars stories, please catch up with Part 1 and Part 2 if you have not done so already.
Here it goes.
After a month and half of having my flesh cleaned every two days, the surgeons finally said I was ready for skin reconstructive surgery. They explained that I will be undergoing skin graft surgery. Basically, they were going to copy skin from my thigh and paste and all my burned areas. I had two options, mesh graft or sheet graft. Because the burns on my legs were extensive, they used mesh to reduce the chances of infections. The burn on my stomach and arm were covered with sheet graft. The surgery …

Key identities of a believer

Key Identities of a believer Hello everyone, thank you so much for being an avid reader of my blog. You are amazing and I pray that all your heart desires come to pass in Jesus name. The topic for today is one that has got me very excited💃💃. Being in Christ is amazing but not knowing what that means can lead to a life of frustration. It is like being in line to get on an aeroplane and getting upgraded to first class. If you don’t know the perks of being in first class, you may end up behaving like you are stuck in economy. If you don’t know that a first class passenger has access to a lounge area with delicious foods and drinks while they wait for their flight, you may end up paying a lot of money for food in a non-relaxing side of the airport. What is the benefit of getting a free gift without knowing what comes with it? No benefit at all.
Let us start by answering this question. Who is a believer?My simple definition for a believer is a person that believes in the death, burial a…
