©, Provided by Associated News These days it seems like beauty bloggers are in a secret competition with each other to see who can come up with the most useless and ridiculous makeup tip imaginable. Beauty style makeup.
Need proof? How about the girl who used marshmallows to curl her hair, rather than plain old curlers that were designed for that purpose?
Or the blogger who decided that rather than using a makeup brush, beauty blender, or even her fingers, she’d apply her foundation with a tampon?
But while the majority of viral beauty trends tend to be utterly bonkers, there’s still a few gals out there who are coming up with ingenious ways to make our beauty routine a tad easier.
Take Lauren Brady for instance.
Boudoir beauty eye makeup kit
The Californian student has gone viral overnight after coming up with a genius way to keep eye makeup on fleek while washing her greasy hair in the shower.
The beauty junkie uploaded a picture of herself wearing scuba goggles in the shower on Tumblr and has received over 100,000 notes on the post.
The clever tip allowed her to wash her hair and body while keeping her fake lashes, eyeliner, mascara and smoky eyeshadow completely intact.
Her method didn’t go unquestioned though as she revealed to Buzzfeed that many people wondered why she didn’t just use dry shampoo to freshen up her hair.
Her answer? ‘Not a good idea when you have a perm.’
That’s a fair point, right?
