DIY beauty secrets? They're in his medicine cabinet.

You don't need your entire hair and makeup arsenal to fix these beauty mishaps. Check your guy's medicine cabinet for budget-friendly, do-it-yourself saves for these common beauty disasters.

Overdone 'Do
The Beauty Disaster: You're getting ready for your boyfriend's office holiday party, and all the mussing and fussing with your hair has left it bogged down with greasy, sticky hair products.


The Easy Fix: Save a shower, our go-to solution for this hairy situation is baby powder. Sprinkle some on the palm of your hand (go easy if you have dark hair), rub your hands together, and run them through your mane, starting with your scalp and roots, and working your way down. Repeat as necessary until the powder has absorbed the excess oil on your strands.

Deodorant Streaking
The Beauty Disaster: You're on your way to a double dinner date with your boyfriend's coworkers when you notice that your efforts to smell shower fresh have left big white streaks all over your little black dress.

The Easy Fix: Just rubbing your hand over the offending white spots, even using water, won't get the job done. Reach for the first dark garment you see, like the lining of your guy's jacket or his tie (hey, he can go casual tonight!), wipe over the white streaks, and watch them disappear before your eyes.

Perfume Overload
The Beauty Disaster: His parents are on their way over for brunch and you've spritzed your favorite perfume one (or five) too many times...and the aftermath doesn't smell pretty.

The Easy Fix: There's no need for a hot shower to scrub off the eau de trying-too-hard. Grab cotton balls and rubbing alcohol and go to town. The alcohol will absorb and dry out the scent.

Breakout Breakdown
The Beauty Disaster: It's the morning after and you come face to face with a map of zits in his bathroom mirror—and you don't have your concealer or foundation with you.

The Easy Fix: Before you try to sneak out of his place before he wakes up, reach for the Pepto Bismol—yes, really! Apply the Pink stuff with a Q-tip as a spot treatment to dry it out. Get the red out with a drop of Visine before dabbing on moisturizer—nothing calls attention to a pimple like flaky skin.
