Apply tape to the outer corners of your eye. Then, apply eyeliner to outer half of eye as you normally would. The eyeliner goes on smoothly, but if you're an eyeliner pro, it's probably easiest to do it without the help of the tape. Success.

5. Line and Curl Lashes at the Same Time

Heat your eyelash curler with a blowdryer for an extra boost of curl. As a bonus, this will melt off leftover product, and you can wipe away residue for a clean curler. Draw eyeliner across the inside of your curler, then curl your lashes as you normally would. You might need to do a little touch-up, but overall: Success.

6. Powdered Drink Mix Lip Color

Cover your broken powder with plastic. Smash into fine powder using a dull surface, such as the back end of a spatula. Remove plastic and saturate the powder with rubbing alcohol. Smooth with spatula. Wait 24 hours for palette to harden. You now have a powder that's nearly as good as new. Success.
