9 Of The Most Useful Q-tip Hacks
Shadow Packing Hack: Load up a few swabs with your favorite eye shadow before a trip, and store them in a plastic bag. This way, you can travel light and not have to worry about shattering your beloved palette in transit.
Softly Define Your Smile: Instead of using a hard line to define your lips (which can look severe), border them with a line made up of soft dash marks. Blend the dashes with a cotton bud to make your lips look naturally defined.
Restore Shattered Shadow: Pour the powdered remains of your shadow into a spare, clean contact lens case, then add a few drops of rubbing alcohol. Use the cotton tip of the tool to pack the product back together, then let it dry. The shadow will be as good as new in a few hours!
Three-Second Smoky Eye: Draw a thick, heavy line of your favorite creamy eyeliner close to your lashes. Smudge upward with a swab to create a quick smoky eye.
Conceal a Pimple: Use one end of a Q-tip to dab concealer onto a blemish, then blend away any harsh edges. Then use the other side to set the makeup with loose powder. Because you'll throw it out once you've finished, this technique is more hygienic than using a brush!
Fake Awake Eyes: For brighter, more alert-looking eyes, dab a light shimmery shadow on the inner corners of your eyes with a cotton bud.
Contour Your Crease: Shade your eyelid along the "outer V" (in your crease to the outer edge of your eye, and then along the lash line) with a darker shadow, using the rounded edge of the tool. Not only will your makeup look more defined, but your eyes will also look larger.
Highlight on Fleek: Smooth a cream highlighter along your cheekbone and brow bone with an ear stick to get a gorgeous glow.
Fake a Nose Job: Apply concealer or highlighter along the center of your nose with one end of the stick for a longer, thinner look. To make your nose look even slimmer, apply and blend contouring powder two shades darker than your natural complexion on the sides of your nose.
