As much as they have access to the most sophisticated cosmetics and skin care products, some celebrities still prefer to get their hands dirty. In line with the “people like us” trend, several celebrities follow their own beauty rituals and time-saving homemade tricks.
An example of this is Beyoncé, who instead of using her own product to lift and shape her eyebrows, the singer resorted to a simple glue stick. Can you believe? Not to mention the other more unusual tricks of other stars, such as brushing your teeth with clay or running beer through your hair.
There is no scientific proof about the tricks, after all, they are homemade and natural, but celebrities continue to follow. Check out more of these never-before-seen secrets:
