Attempting the “Winged” Look 

How you’re doing it: You adore the cat-eye look, but it takes hours to meticulously apply liquid liner to your lids. In the end, your eyes don’t even match.

Smarter strategy:
1. Stick these Sephora eyeliner appliques on your lids.
2. Look like a pro.

I just smash it up to a fine powder and mix with another color in the same tone, or gold.-Viola-a new eye shadow customized.

For the hair dryer ~ you can also use Q-tips and just swirl the hair, dust, and yuck away. It's way cheaper and the Q-tips actually fit IN the back of the dryer...just saying
