You are gearing up for the most memorable event of your high school life, all set to start your makeup, when suddenly you discover your foundation just ran out! So, what would be your next move? Do you have the time to buy a new one? Well, definitely not! 

So, here’s a quick solution for you! Mix a little moisturizer with some loose powder to create a tinted moisturizer that will even out your skin tone. Or, you can also try mixing a bit of moisturizer with a concealer that matches your skin tone for a makeshift foundation.

Emergency Eyeliner

If you need to make emergency eyeliner, pick a dark eyeshadow in the shade of gray, black, or dark brown and an angled brush. Wet the brush slightly, dip it into the eyeshadow, and carefully apply it along your lash line for a makeshift eyeliner. Blend it well for a softer look. 

If you want to add a pop of color, pick any color eyeshadow that resembles your dress! Doing so will give you a similar effect to eyeliner, defining your eyes with a bit of depth and drama. It’s not as precise as eyeliner, but it’s perfect for a quick fix or a more relaxed, lived-in look.

DIY Brow Gel

If you can’t find your brow gel or pencil, let your hairspray rescue you. Spray a small amount on a clean mascara wand or a spoolie brush. Gently brush your eyebrows in the direction of your hair growth to set them in place. 

The hairspray will help tame unruly brows and keep them looking groomed throughout the day. Just be sure to use a light hand to avoid a stiff or sticky finish.

Lipstick as Blush

Running low on blush? Let’s get creative with what you already have in your makeup vanity! Your lipstick or your eyeshadow palette can be the perfect substitute. All you have to do is use your fingertip or a makeup sponge to dab a small amount of lipstick or eyeshadow onto the apples of your cheeks. 

Blend it outwards towards your temples for a natural flush of color, giving you a fresh and rosy glow. Just be sure to choose a shade that complements your skin tone for a seamless finish.
