Kool-Aid = Lipstick

DIY dilemma: A day of volunteering at your kid’s kindergarten has drained the life from your face--and you’ve got just five minutes until the school bell rings and you can make a break for a restaurant with the family.

Mission accomplished: Distract the kids with a pitcher of cherry Kool-Aid while you grab a pinch of the powder for yourself and head to the bathroom mirror. Mix with a little water and you’ll have made an awesome ad-hoc cheek and lip tint, say Annie and Maggie Ford Danielson, global authorities for Benefit Beauty.
