For fishtail braids: Forgo a hair elastic next time you sport a relaxed braid. Instead, tie the ends of your plaited hair together and slide a bobby pin upward into the knot.
For your photo ID: Renewing your license or passport? Angle your face directly toward the lens – and skip lip gloss, which can catch the light in a strange way.
For makeup removal: Be sure to pre-cleanse before using an actual cleanser. Wipes, water, or cleansing oils will do, preventing the day’s cosmetics and dirt from seeping into open pores.
