The last thing you want to do is tug on the delicate skin around your peepers (unless you want premature wrinkles), so we turned to makeup artist and skincare consultant Karuna Chani, who's worked with celebrities such as Priyanka Chopra, for a quick fix that's not only gentle but also makes budge-proof cosmetics magically disappear.

Make a mistake with your liquid eyeliner while trying to achieve the perfect cat eye? No problem. Take a Q-tip with a little eye cream on the pointed tip and just wipe the mistake away without disrupting the rest of your makeup. Eye cream is the best product to use because of its hydrating and soothing qualities. When applied to a cotton square, you can also use it to remove stubborn matte lipstick or lip stains—the cream will soothe your lips while removing the color without drying them out. Remember, a small amount goes a long way, so you don't need much!"
