8 Ways to Use Vaseline You Had No Idea About

Petroleum jelly is a truly universal product that can be used in any sphere, from cosmetology to repair.

We at 5-Minute Crafts want to share 8 methods of how to use Vaseline that might come in handy in everyday life.

1. Make liquid eyeshadow.

1️⃣ Using a wooden spatula (a spoon will do), place a small amount of Vaseline in a glass container.

2️⃣ Pour cosmetic glitter in there.

3️⃣ Add dry shadows in the colors you would like to get in the end into this mixture.

4️⃣ Mix thoroughly.

5️⃣ Draw the mixture into a syringe without a needle.

6️⃣ Pour the liquid eyeshadow into a container that’s convenient for you.

2. Secure a suction cup.

1️⃣ If your sponge holder keeps falling, check whether its suction cups work well. If they do but the holder falls down anyway, try using Vaseline.

2️⃣ Take a paper towel and apply a small amount of Vaseline to it.

3️⃣ Apply Vaseline onto the inner part of the suction cups.

4️⃣ Secure the holder in its place. The place where the suction cups will be located should be clean and dry.

3. Make eyelashes look thicker.

1️⃣ Take a clean mascara brush and apply Vaseline to it.

2️⃣ Apply Vaseline onto your lashes and use your regular mascara after it. There should only be a little Vaseline on your lashes.

4. Make lip gloss.

1️⃣ Pour shadows of different colors into a glass container.

2️⃣ Add a bit of petroleum jelly.

3️⃣ Mix the ingredients thoroughly.

4️⃣ Put it into a jar or container and use it as directed.

5. Make a mascara from eyeshadow.

1️⃣ Take black eyeshadow.

2️⃣ Take out Vaseline with a spatula.

3️⃣ Mix it with eyeshadow.

4️⃣ Using a toothbrush, gently apply the mixture to your eyelashes.

6. Protect metal elements when painting.

1️⃣ Get some Vaseline and Q-tips.

2️⃣ Carefully apply the jelly to a metal item.

3️⃣ Apply paint to the entire surface as shown in the picture. When doing this, try not to remove the Vaseline layer.

4️⃣ Wipe down the metal with tissue paper when the paint is dry.

7. Make your hair look neat.

1️⃣ Apply some petroleum jelly to a clean toothbrush (you can use your fingertips).

2️⃣ Spread it along your strands of hair.

8. Make a wound heal faster.

1️⃣ Take a small amount of Vaseline.

2️⃣ Apply it to the cut and let it absorb.
