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.

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness

Righteousness consciousness versus sin consciousness If you follow me on twitter for a while now, you will see that I always talk about how powerful your righteousness consciousness is compared to sin consciousness. I often roll my eyes when I see people discussing if something is sin or not sin. Do you know someone that is always talking about what is sin or isn’t sin? Or have you found yourself saying “I must be careful not to sin today, God help me not to sin” every day? This is being sin-conscious! You have not sinned yet but you are over-focused on the power of sin rather than the righteousness of God that you are as a believer . Hebrews 10:2-3 (TPT) For if animal sacrifices could once and for all eliminate sin, they would have ceased to be offered and the worshipers would have clean consciences. Instead, once was not enough so by the repetitive sacrifices year after year, the worshipers were continually reminded of their sins, with their hearts still impure. &q

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage

10 things Christian couples should talk about before marriage by Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hi Bi-blings, it's been a hot minute I did a post on relationship and marriage. I guess it's timely because my 2 years wedding anniversary is next week and I'm in the romantic love space so I figured I might as well. So why is it important to discuss these things? Well, it's necessary because it eliminates a lot of headaches you may have along the way. It may not eliminate it all completely but there won't be any surprises. Imagine if after you said "I do", the person reveals that they are not interested in children and you want 2 kids. Where would you start from? There are so many conflicts that can be avoided altogether by having these difficult conversations before you say I do. Money Listen, money is very important in marriage. If you're not talking about your money habits now, you are setting yourself up for hard conversations down the line. Ask questions about
