Disney on Family — 11 Things In Your Kitchen You Never Knew You Could Use As Beauty Products

I am sometimes judgmental and potentially simple-minded and, as such, I enjoy placing people into arbitrary categories. This is why, for the longest time, I assumed that when it came to kitchens, there could only ever be two types of people. There were those who use it in the conventional way–you know, baking, eating, cooking pies with your baby–and those who used it in the conventionally unconventional way, 脿 la Carrie Bradshaw, sneering at the thought of using the kitchen to cook and only ever used the oven as a means of storing shoes.

But! Recently, I learned that there is also a third category of people–those who use the kitchen as a secret cache of beauty supplies, should the need arise. My world was extremely rocked, but it’s true–there are a ton of things in your kitchen that you could eat, sure, or use as a vessel for your clothes and accessories, but your best bet is to meld these two schools of thought together and just put them all over your face.

These secret beauty items are aaallll just lying around in your kitchen, anxiously waiting for someone (you) to seamlessly integrate them into their beauty routine:

1. Spoon:

This is probably the easiest thing to get from your kitchen, and a spoon is basically your BFF when it comes to beauty–it’ll help you apply your eyeliner straighter and keep your mascara from smudging. (Just make sure to wash it afterwards, obviously.)

2. Tea Bags:

I’ve written about how great tea bags can be in your beauty routine, but they deserve a second mention–you can use tea bags for pretty much anything, from reducing eye puffiness to dying your own hair.

3. Almonds:

If you’re out of face scrub, don’t worry. All you need to do is grind up a handful of raw almonds with coconut oil and massage it onto your face. Rinse off and you’ll have great, smooth skin!

4. Basil:

This herb is as versatile as a beauty product as it is in your food–use it for everything from acne care to a hair mask.

5. Eggs:

Beat three or four eggs together with three tablespoons of olive oil, then massage it into your hair and leave it there for half an hour (just make sure to wrap a towel around your head so you don’t drip salmonella everywhere). Then, wash it out, and your hair will be shiny and soft AF.

6. Garlic:

Garlic works as a surprisingly great spot treatment for zits–just crush up two or three garlic cloves, mix them in water, and apply the mixture to your face with a cotton ball. This will help clear up your acne. (And I guess if you have a vampire problem you won’t have to worry about that either?)

7. Brown Sugar:

Exfoliation! Mix equal parts brown sugar and coconut oil together to make the perfect exfoliator for your face and body You might want to eat some of it too. I wouldn’t blame you.

8. Sour Cream:

Dairy is notoriously for causing breakouts but sour cream, weird as it sounds, is actually good for your skin. Sour cream contains lactic acid, which means that it will remove dead skin and help promote new skin cell generation. So, make a mask! Combine two tablespoons of sour cream, half a banana, and some honey, and stick it on your face.

9. Cornstarch:

If you want to have a properly beat down face but don’t feel like shelling out funds for setting powder, you might not have to–some people think cornstarch works just as well! Use a makeup brush to sweep a thin layer over your face–this will help eliminate shine and keep your makeup fresh for hours.

10. Strawberries

Want whiter teeth? Mash up some strawberries and mix them together with baking powder. Brush the mixture on with a toothbrush, then leave it on your teeth for about five minutes. When you remove it (you can do this by brushing your teeth with your regular toothpaste) your teeth will be a sparkling white!

11. Wasabi:

Remember when everyone was going crazy over the Kylie Jenner lip challenge? Well, there was really no need for that–if you mix a tiny bit of wasabi with your lip balm, your lips will actually get plumper (and don’t worry–wasabi is actually safe to put on your lips, unlike the Kylie Jenner challenge).

Zendaya Breaks Down Her All-Time Favorite Beauty Looks

When it comes to makeup trends, Zendaya's tried them all! Even though the adventurous star loves switching things up on the red carpet, there are some looks she always comes back to. Here, Z shares her fave red carpet makeup from over the years.
Bold Lip "This one was really easy, because I wanted to let the lips speak for themselves and let everything else be natural."
Pop Of Blue Shadow "I worked with an awesome makeup artist from my show Shake It Up on this look. If you look really close up, she put blue on the inner corners of my eyes, which was fun. It's really easy to add a pop of color to your eyes."
Winged Liner with Bright Orange Lip "This is from a few year's ago, but I love that color lipstick—I'm wearing it now. To balance the bright lip, I just went with a simple winged eyeliner and not much of anything else."
Natural Look "I didn't want to take away from the outfit, so I didn't want to do a crazy lip, or a crazy anything. I just wanted to do a natural look (and I didn't have much time either)."
Classic Smoky Eye "A smoky eye is actually the easiest for me, because literally all you got to do is apply a little bit of black eyeliner, and then add a shimmery grey shadow all over your lid and blend it out, and then you're all good to go. It's very easy." Ver Mas en:

Your Guide to Under-$20 Summer Beauty

Summer is great: It means vacation, beaches, and awesome swimwear. But it can be a tricky time for beauty, when our hair is chapped from the ocean but our skin is shinier than the sequined gowns we wore at prom. And then, of course, there's the whole matter of SPF, which can cause makeup to look chalky and gross. (And our pores to clog and get zits.) In this comprehensive shopping guide, we've outlined this season's plentiful beauty concerns and our most effective (but affordable!) solutions. Click through to find out which drugstore diamonds made our list, and then let us know what you're using in the comments below. (Seriously: We love to hear from you.)

Did You Know There's an 11-Step Japanese Skin Care Routine?! Here's Why You Should Try It

11 Steps of the Japanese Skin Care Routine
Walking in the doors of Mitsokushi in Ginza, Tokyo, the first thing you notice are the makeup counters: They cover the floor in glimmering black lacquer and glass, reflecting their glamour across shiny tiles as well-dressed Japanese teens figure out which of the latest and greatest creams, cleansers, and moisturizers they're going to try. Meanwhile, a few subway rides away in trendy Harajuku, the options for finding great skincare are endless: Both well-known and boutique brands march down Japan's version of the Champs-脡lys茅es. And not far from Harajuku, down a quiet residential street in Roppongi, women of all ages are scrubbing away the day's dirt and soaking their skin in the brown mineral waters that bubble up from underground hot springs. In Japan, a naturally glowing, smooth complexion has been the longstanding foundation for beauty. Most Japanese girls follow the country's standard seven-step regimen, but sometimes the process can go all the way up to 11 steps! "We consider our facial features relatively flat compared to Western people," Tokyo-based Jill Stuart beauty brand manager Mayumi Sato says. "Meaning, the skin's appearance plays an important role in perfecting our look, because imperfections stand out even more on our skin. Wearing beautiful makeup alone can't hide the imperfections." Beyond the superficial, there may be a cultural reason for the meticulous routines: "Japanese people love cleanliness," she adds. "Some people soak in the bathtub for more than an hour." We asked top skin care experts to take us through exactly what goes into an 11-step routine. (Though more than one of our experts did admit they stick to five or seven steps on a daily basis.) Still, if you're as curious as we were, click through to find out more!

Exclusive! Bella Thorne's Makeup Artist Shares Her Secrets for a Natural, Pretty Prom Look

The red carpet at last night's MTV Movie Awards was full of eccentric beauty looks, from crimped ponytails to super bright lips. But Bella Thorne opted for a more natural aesthetic with easy, flowing hair and barely-there makeup. A lot of you awesome readers have been asking for tips on how to pull off a subtle look like hers for prom, so we got an exclusive step-by-step with Bella's makeup artist, the lovely Tonya Brewer. (The best part? Tonya used a ton of great drugstore products. That means if you don't have a whole lot of makeup to begin with, buying a few things for prom won't break the bank!) "Bella and I love experimenting," Brewer told us, "and the Movie Awards is normally a great opportunity to try new things. But last year we did a golden smoky eye, so we wanted to mix it up. I decided to enhance Bella's natural beauty, which is a look I would recommend for anyone who wants to just look beautiful on prom night. It really takes minimal effort to achieve." Of course, we all know beauty starts with the skin. "The first step is to make the complexion flawless," Brewer says. "I use Neutrogena's Skin Clearing Liquid Makeup because it's light and breathable. It's oil-free, so it won't clog your pores, and it has salicylic acid to treat breakouts." Oil-based foundations are actually easier to blend into the skin, so make sure you apply this product with a damp BeautyBlender sponge to ensure a seamless finish. Consider only dabbing it onto your T-zone, the corners of the nose, and the chin to cancel out redness, and let the rest of your complexion breathe! "Once the foundation was finished, I used my fingers to apply a brightening concealer under the eye area. Neutrogena's Eye Perfector is really a life saver, plus it's great for on-the-go touch ups. It also has SPF, which makes it ideal for everyday use to protect the fragile under eyes!" A lot of girls skip blush altogether, but Brewer insists it's an essential for healthy radiance. "A light dusting of a shimmery blush will enhance the cheekbones," she says. "I used Sheer Highlighting Blush in Pure, which is a soft pink. It livens up the complexion and adds a bit of gentle color." To finish the skin, she dusted every oily girl's best friend onto the T-zone: Neutrogena's Shine Control Powder. For the eyes, a taupe shadow was dusted all over the lids to add dimension. "Then on the inner corners, I applied a gold shadow. It really widens the eyes, which is great for pictures," Brewer says. Then she finished with a few quick coats of "B's favorite mascara," Neutrogena Healthy Lengths. "It builds volume quickly to achieve a fuller-looking lash!" For the lips, Brewer advises skipping full-on lipstick in favor of something sheer, lightweight, and shiny. "A lip crayon is great because they hydrate your lips while you wear them, which leaves your pout feeling soft and smooth." Bella's wearing Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick in Warm Caramel. Check out our exclusive behind-the-scenes photo of Bella's barely-there makeup below, and let us know if you have any additional questions on how to get the look in the comments section!

Beauty Battle: Kylie Jenner and Emmy Rossum Face off in Flower Crowns

When we were brainstorming the best hairstyles to wear at Coachella, the flower crown was obviously at the top of the list. And, sure, it's a look that can easily be perceived as predictable, but that doesn't mean it's not pretty! A couple of our favorite celebrities just proved that this is one style with major staying power, albeit in two dramatically different ways. Kylie Jenner and sister Kendall used Coachella as an opportunity to experiment sartorially, opting for witchy-bohemian fashions that certainly turned heads. To accent her new look, Kylie took her crown to a slightly gothic place with black-dyed flowers, a choker necklace, and rimmed eyes. The accessory was placed high enough on Kylie's head to show her dip-dyed tips and a bit of hair in the front, which added height to her face shape. (A great tip for any round-faced girl—the higher your bun, crown, or braid, the more flattering!) Meanwhile, Emmy Rossum kept it classic and pretty with gorgeous purple blooms and raspberry lipstick at a Christian Louboutin luncheon in Los Angeles. Adding to the casual, hippie vibe of the crown was an easy, beachy texture. (Try Sachajuan Ocean Mist on damp hair, then let it air dry for a similar effect.) Finishing the look was a ladylike dress and a pair of ladylike heels, which proves the hair accessory is an option for more than just music festivals.
