If you are looking to achieve flawless makeup without any stress and unevenness, a tape can help you get that sharp precise contour, clean lines, help you clean your makeup brush, and much more.

Hack 1: Cut Crease

If you are looking to achieve the cut crease look, or want to deposit shadow only in your crease for a transition colour, then tape your lids and apply shadow in a sweeping motion. This creates a  stencil on your eyes. 

Hack 2: Prevent Eyeshadow Fallout

Apply tape on the sides of your eyelids to catch fall-out. This will also give your shadow sharp and neat edges. 

Hack 3: Clean Brushes

When travelling or in a hurry, you may not always have access to your full collection of makeup brushes. So when switching between two shades of shadow, just tap your brush on the sticky side of the tape. It will catch all the shadow, and your brush will be ready for reuse!

Hack 4: Clean Glitter Fall Out

Working with glitter makeup is extremely tricky as there is a lot of fall-out. An easy way to clean up these pesky little extras is by tapping the sticky side of a tape on the fallout, it will pick all the glitter up, leaving the area clean.

Hack 6: The perfect winged liner

Unless you have a degree in geometry, getting an even and perfect winged liner is plain simple hard. Use the age-old scotch tape hack, trust us, it will make things a hell lot easier. Place the tape in the corner of your eye towards your temples.
