For your bathroom counter: Keep your beauty tools in one place with a simple magnetic strip affixed to the wall. Think bobby pins, eyelash curlers, and nail clippers – all in the same grab-and-go spot.

For a grown-out mani: Want to disguise nail overgrowth between trips to the salon? Layer on your go-to glitter polish at the base of your nail to create an ombré effect. Finish with a topcoat to seal.

For oily hair: Blotting papers aren’t only for your face. Use them along your hairline, bangs, or anywhere that strands are looking a little slick. Pro tip: toilet-seat covers are an effective substitute in a pinch.
