We females just love makeup; from eyeliners to lipsticks and mascara to concealer, our handbags are stuffed with everything. If done correctly, makeup can hide all the flaws and make us look like a diva. However, at times the makeup doesn’t go that perfectly or consumes a hell lot of our time. At such times we wish for some quick fixes or shortcuts that are not just easy and affordable but also very effective.
