Today I have a beauty tip for you. Have you ever purchased a wax kit to do your eyebrows and run out of the muslin strips that come with the package of wax? It’s always an annoyance to me that I’m given enough wax in the kit for an entire year, but enough wax strips for only a couple waxes.
This is a tip I learned from a friend in middle school, and I’ve been using it ever since. If you want the sturdiest and most amazing wax strips you’ll ever find, look no further than last month’s discarded magazine. I tear off the front and back covers of a magazine- the glossy, thick part is what you’re looking for- and cut or rip them into strips.
It’s as uncomplicated as that. They adhere very well to the wax, and I find they work at least as well as muslin strips, if not better. In fact, I have never purchased wax strips at the beauty supply store because I think these work just as well.
Do you have a beauty tip that will save us all a few bucks and a little sanity? Please share in the comments below!
