Performing the same tasks, day after day can often become quite mundane. Putting on makeup is no exception to this, and it seems that beauty addicts like the ones listed here have gone to extremes to keep themselves entertained. The following practices will be uncommon and downright strange to some, but there is one thing that is for sure; there are many things to use as a substitute for a sponge. Keep reading to find out.
“Double Stuf” Lashes
YouTuber Katharine Ward took lash volume and extension to the next level when she decided to teach the world to make homemade mascara out of Oreo cookies. Perhaps Mr. Christie would be proud, but it is more likely that he would be far too confused to comment. This leaves the question, what is wrong with using store-bought mascara? Surely Oreos have a much greater (and tastier) purpose as an edible treat rather than as flavored goop for the eyes. To each his/her own, but it seems like a shame to dip eyelashes in Oreo cookie paste instead of dipping Oreo cookies into a glass of milk.
Probably not a form of flattery in this particular case. Annie from xoVain decided a Sharpie would be a perfect substitute for eyeliner after Taylor Swift once thought the same thing. Aside from situations where one is legitimately in a pinch, why not just use regular eyeliner? Even when in a pinch, there must be something slightly less hazardous lying around the house. This example shows why it is probably best to stick with one’s personal preference, regardless of which celebrities are trying out new makeup fads. This Sharpie eyeliner tutorial will surely teach you how to give your face a bold look, but an even bigger YouTube hit would be instructions on how to remove it.
