You have that all important meeting to attend early in the morning and you have no time to wash those oily tresses. Just dab talcum powder in the roots of the hair and wait for few minutes. Talcum powder will absorb the excess oil and your hair will look just perfect.

  1. Out of lipstick or blush on

All hell breaks loose when you forget your precious lipstick. Never mind just apply a little blush on and then give it a finishing touch with some moisturiser and you are done. Similarly, you may forget to carry your blush on then your lipstick can come to your rescue. Mix it with a little powder and dab it on your cheeks.

  1. Oily face

In a spray bottle keep mixture of rose water and alcoholic skin toner. Make sure that you always carry this bottle with you in your bag. Whenever your face is too oily and greasy just spray this mixture on your face and wipe it with a clean tissue paper.

  1. Forgot your deodorant

If you forgot your deodorant and your underarms are stinking do not worry. Just get a lemon. Cut and apply the juice to your underarms. You will get rid of the bacteria as well as the bad smell. The lemony aroma will definitely be more pleasing.

  1. Too much mascara

If you end up applying too much mascara on your lashes then they will stick together.  Do not try to remove the excess mascara as you will end up spoiling your make up. Instead, take a tooth pick and try to separate out the eyelashes slowly.

  1. Chapped lips
