7 Ridiculously Easy Makeup Tips That You'll Actually Want To Try

Do less work to look damn good.

1. Instead of paying for a brush-cleaning mat, make a DIY version with a paper plate and hot glue!

2. Use this tip (get it?) to make a dried-out eyeliner pen work like new again.

3. If you can't find your perfect mascara, make a cocktail of your favorite wand and formula to get the lashes you actually want.

4. Learn what that tutorial means when it refers to the "waterline" and "outer v" of your eye.

5. Clean everything that comes into contact with your face to decrease the amount of bacteria that comes into contact with your skin. That stuff can seriously mess you up.

6. Use an empty (clean!) plastic tampon applicator to save your fingernail polish when you want to redo your toes.

7. Disguise blue-ish under eye circles with a few dabs of red lipstick.
