Another day, another viral makeup hack. Seriously, the things people think of never cease to amaze us — these hacks are sometimes so simple, yet so genius, that we kick ourselves for not thinking of them ourselves. However, this one is a little more... let's say rudimentary. Twitter user @_evamariie has taken a pretty common problem (the issue of getting foundation on your shirt collar when you get dressed after applying makeup) and tried to solve it. It's the way she's solved it that some folks are taking issue with, while others are hailing her as a veritable Einstein. Take a look.
Her solve is this: She puts a bag on her head before getting dressed. Yep — that's it. Yet the tweet went viral, racking up over 17,000 retweets and 61,000 likes at the time of this post, and over 400 replies. Though it's obvious the "hack" would, in fact, keep makeup stains from your clothing, there are also some safety concerns, not to mention the fact that any makeup you just put on may rub off on the bag. Twitter users seemed to echo these concerns and sounded off in the replies.
However, others loved the idea, and will likely steal it to use in their own getting ready routines.
Even if the idea may need to be fine-tuned a bit, she's clearly onto something. Hey, if it works for her...
