When preparing for a night out, there are usually two main components to getting ready – putting on your outfit and doing your makeup. Sometimes, however, these steps result in an unfortunate incident and you end up with a spot of concealer or lipstick on your ensemble.
Luckily, Yahoo! Shine reports that you may not have to change your threads at the last minute, as long as you have a few handy items in your kitchen.
“If you’ve spilled liquid foundation onto a blouse, go to the kitchen and get some baking soda,” the website suggests. “Sprinkle the powder onto the stain until it’s completely covered and press it gently into the fabric. Wet a nailbrush or a toothbrush and lightly brush the spot.”
You can also treat the concealer stain with a piece of white bread – as long as the fabric is washable. According to the news source, knead the slice into a ball and it will easily blot-up foundation.
If you end up with a smear of lipstick on your shirt, the bread trick can work as well. Unfortunately, you may have to don a new shirt before heading out, as experts recommend washing the garment after removing the mark with the bread.
To avoid making a mess when removing your makeup, you can use products like the beauty sponge from Beauty Blender. It makes cleaning your face a lot more easier. It also prevents the buildup of bacteria and potentially, a breakout.
