We seem to buy a pack of them every week but lose them almost instantly, and a good portion of our down time is spent wondering where they all end up.

Bobby pins, hair pins, or kirby grips, whatever you may call them, those little metal hair slides are the latest ingredient in the ideal eyeliner hack.

Instagram MUAs and YouTube beauty vloggers alike have been utilising the humble bobby pin in the pursuit of the purrfect cat-eye, and we think it's a pretty genius idea.

The only tools you need are your liquid eyeliner of choice and a large bobby pin, if you can find one.

Then all you have to do is paint the liner onto the open end of the bobby pin and stamp it on the outer corner of your eye.

This motion creates the winged tip, and because it's a stamp, you can recreate the exact same wing on the other eye.

Then all you have to do is fill in the lines, simple. 

Now to find a few bobby pins to try this trick, since they like to disappear into the abyss whenever we stock up on them.

The makeup lover drenches the floss in eyeliner pigment before stamping the winger shape onto the outer corner of her eyes.

Completely genius.

We can barely draw on one wobbly line, never mind two, se we're really loving this hack. 

The liner lover often showcases her perfect wings on her Instagram, so if it's good enough for her… 



If your make-up bag weighs the same as a bag of flour, then it’s quite likely you have products in there that you probably forgot you even owned.

While it’s okay to have nearly every beauty product on the market lying around the house, there’s no need for you to carry everything with you on a daily basis.

Here is all you need to stay fresh for a day:

Where would we be without it? Concealer hides a multitude of sins, from nasty blemishes to unwanted dark circles.

A good coat of mascara can instantly transform your face.

A bit of blusher on your cheeks can make all the difference in the world. It will make you look rosy and alive.

Lip balm
There’s nothing worse than having cracked lips. Not only are they sore, but they’re also not pretty to look at.

One to shape your eyebrows and one for your water line – pencil liner is a God-send really.
