Here's a smokey eye hack even novices can get behind

Remember how we were scrambling to investigate the legitimacy of TikTok's frozen beauty blender hack by popping one of our standard blenders in the freezer for a bit and proceeding to blend our makeup with the stone-cold tool? Yup. There's another hack involving this egg-shaped sponge. And we're, once again, rushing to put it to the test. Let's dive right in.


Another hack with a blender? What does it involve this time?

Have you ever struggled with blending your eyeshadow? Or just not had the time to retrieve your brushes and *dab, dab, dab* at your lids until the colours have melted into each other seamlessly? We've got you.

This new hack, popularised by 'glamwithsuzan' on the platform, shows you how to apply eyeshadow to achieve a smokey-eyed look with the employment of one tool: a beauty blender.

The hack fetches effective results when used with a smaller-sized sponge. All you have to do is dip the side of your blender into two matte-textured colours of your choice and press the tool against your lid in the area you'd like to position your eyeshadow.

Proceed to dip the blender into a glittery eyeshadow and apply it to the inner corners as well as the centre of your eyes. And that's it! Sure, you might not perfect the hack in one go; you can keep at your disposal a blending brush to smooth out any rough edges. That's how you recreate an expert-like smokey-eyed look with a few dabs on the lids!
