If you aren't watching K-dramas and taking online courses while on home quarantine, beat boredom with the one task you probably haven't done in a while—putting on makeup. Instead of wearing your usual pre-quarantine face, we suggest trying something new just to mix things up a little. Our reco? Binging on some good old makeup tutorials for equal parts entertainment and inspiration. Keep scrolling for some that we've been loving recently!
