12.Blend your lipliner through the inside of your lips to avoid that liner-with-no-lipstick look.
13.Or if you're tired of buying a lip liner for every shade of lipstick you own, try a transparent Urban Decay universal priming liner to keep your lips on lock. It also works to hide blemishes, fill in fine lines (so makeup doesn't settle into them), and correct errant makeup marks!
14.Brush on translucent powder between layers of your favorite lipstick to help it last alllllll damn day.

18.Layer eyelash primer (like this top-rated Lancôme one) under your mascara for long and clump-free lashes for days (it conditions to keep them healthier, too!).
19.If you get that mascara smudge under your eye without fail, try this handy trick to stop it once and for all. Just run your finger across — in the words of Ina, how easy is that?
20.Combat clumping and make reapplying mascara in the evening less of a mess with a set of foldable eyelash combs. Keep one in your purse for touch-ups!
21.Dot your eyeliner, then connect the dots to make doing a cat eye with liquid liner so much easier.
22.Or opt for a waterproof, smudge-resistant eyeliner stamp with two sides: a triangular stamp on one end and a felt-tip eyeliner on the other to create the perfect winged liner look in no time flat, i.e., you'll never be late again!
23.And erase any errant eyeliner or mascara marks with a remover pen for the most precise strokes.
24.If your eyeliner isn't perfectly pigmented or turns splotchy, fill it in with a matching eye shadow for a bolder line.
25.Tightline your eyelashes (that is, use a pencil or brush to line the spaces between hairs) to avoid having that annoying space between your liner and your lashes.
26.Create a shadowy cat eye on monolids (that won't disappear into the crease); just move it up higher on your lid.
27.Catch eyeshadow fallout and/or guide a perfect eyeliner wing or smokey cat eye with a pack of adhesive shadow shields; they stick right to your face and remove easily — without disturbing your foundation or concealer.
