Lip balms are life saviors when this happens, all you need to be doing is using a bit of balm on an ear-bud/q-tip and clean the messed up areas.  The lip balm helps in straying away mascara smudges without messing up rest of your face.

  • Mixing Medium:

Your lip balm will be a good fix for this, just mix equal parts pigment with equal parts balm and mix it really well, until the products are neatly blended together. This does not just make the color pop but also stays on really long. Just make sure to set the product in really well, so it does not crease.

    Split ends are quite a concern of many women, and lip balms are your rescuers here rub some amount of balm between your fingertips and run them through your hair, to tame them. This helps keep split ends under control, even if it’s just for one day! You just need a teeny tiny bit, as lip balms have quite a heavy texture and you do not want to weigh your hair down!
