Sometimes, the going gets tough and—gasp!—you accidentally leave several essential beauty products behind as you hurriedly prepare for a long day. What's a girl to do? Below, some genius hacks for making your favorites work double time.
Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick in Gabrielle, P1750, Rustan's
There's a reason red lipstick is as timeless as makeup goes. Try drawing your cat-eye on with a slim red line instead of the usual black. Or, go for trendy poppy-stained lids! Even classics can be reinvented.
2. KOHL LINER
Maybelline Master Kajal Eyeliner, P399, Watsons
Want to make a statement but don't have your go-to vamp shade handy? Swipe black kohl liner on your lips for a matte ebony pout that's sure to turn heads.
Max Factor Masterpiece HD Mascara, P890, beautymnl.com
Yikes, you spotted a gray hair! Cover the culprit up with mascara.
Lancôme Waterproof Long-Lasting Undereye Concealer, P1995, Greenbelt 5
In a pinch, your concealer could serve as emergency nude lippie. Rock that skin-on-skin look!
5. TINTED LIP BALM
Burberry Lip Glow Balm in Pink Azalea, P1508, sephora.ph
Feeling pale? Warm your complexion up by spreading a bit of tinted lip balm on your cheeks. Plus points for an instant dewy finish.
6. CLEAR LIP GLOSS
Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gloss, P670, sephora.ph
Just call us the anti-frizz squad! Clear lip gloss is the perfect substitute for hair gel.
Benefit Dew The Hoola Liquid Bronzer, P1600, SM Megamall
Use liquid bronzer to create a glossy brown smoky eye à la Givenchy F/W 2016.
Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow in Cocoa, P1400, Rustan's
The impossible happened: You forgot your brow pencil at home. Fill in the sparse spaces between hairs with matte brown eyeshadow.
Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion, P480, Department Stores
Made a mistake? A bit of hand lotion doubles as makeup remover.
Cargo Swimmables Blush in Rome, P1250, Beauty Bar
In the absence of lip primer, dusting powder blush in a similar shade over your lipstick is a great way to both seal the product in and make its color pop.
