(They’re ninjas because they’re things you’ve had all along, but they’re hiding! Har har har… too early in the morning for bad puns? Yah. Sorry, I promise I’m done.)
Just kidding no I’m not!)
Think about it for a second. Not only can you use your umbrella to attack shifty passerbys, it keeps your hair and makeup in decent form — no matter what your hairstyle is. Straight, wavy, curled, it doesn’t matter. Unless you were born with model!hair (in which case, I hate you) and want to walk around in waterproof makeup 24/7, an umbrella is always a good idea when you’ll be walking around outside and it’s drizzling.
Aka mascara wands, etc. The point is, these do a lot — you can use them to apply mascara or comb through mascara if they’re clean, taking out clumps and redirecting your lashes. They’re also perfect for combing through your brows, whether you’re setting them in the morning or trimming them at night, and a mascara spoolie whisked through a gel or cream product can create some seriously cool makeup effects.
Y’all know I’m crazy about the stuff. It’s great for doing pretty much anything in a pinch: hilighting cheekbones, adding gloss to your lips or lids, moisturizing pretty much anything, sheering out lip products and giving them some shine, making perfume last longer, protecting your hairline for at-home hair colouring, soothing chapped skin, adding gloss and texture to short hairstyles, giving you photo-ready legs and arms…
Enough said. Unscented petroleum jelly is the bomb dot com. (I can’t believe I just typed that. But at the same time: how have I not typed it before?!)
