How to make...

1. Use a spatula or a knife to add some of your concealer into one of your contact lens compartments.

2. Then, use a spatula or a knife to add some of your lipstick into the other contact lens compartment.

3. Secure the lids back onto both compartments, and you have your very own pocket makeup palette!

How to use...


Apply your concealer!

Apply concealer under your eyes, along your nose, to the side of your nostrils, sides of your mouth, in the centre of you chin and the centre of your forehead. 

Placing concealer in these key places will refresh and lift your face! 💖

Apply with your fingers; making sure to pat the product into your skin and simply use feather motions with your finger to blend! 


Add some colour to your cheeks!

Apply a little lipstick to your ring finger and dab onto cheeks 💄🥰

Blend this using quick circular motions up towards the top of your ear with your finger.


Beautify your lips!

Lastly, dab some of the lipstick onto your lips and blot together to create a stunning lip stain! 👄
