There's a TikTok hack that'll help you achieve the ultimate bold, sexy lip—without the mess. All you'll need is your favorite shade a a QTip. Find your fuchsias, reach for the reds, and get ready to pucker up.
The ever-resourceful beauty TikTokers have garnered viral attention (of course) for uncovering the new #qtiplipstick trend that will make your makeup routine all the more simple. As much as we can't resist a colorful tint on our lips, applying it is another story. Rather than try to correct smudges, start off by reaching for the cotton swabs because it'll save you trouble later on.
Put a Qtip in your mouth so that each side is sticking out. (If you thought these bad boys couldn't help in the lipstick department, you're sadly mistaken.) Then, start by putting on your lipstick and let the tips of the cotton swab act as a buffer against those hard-to-reach parts. Once you remove it, voila! Beautiful results ensue.
Witness the lipstick TikTok hack for yourself

Pretty genius, wouldn't you say? Sometimes, we don't believe the TikTok wizards are given enough credit for their ingenuity.
Another beauty trick went viral this week for making those mani pedis a lot easier to do solo. If you're worried about messing up your mani while removing your pedi, find a tampon. (Yep, that's right.)
"Pour you some nail polish remover in the lid here and soak it up," @ag380gtmgmt says in a video. "You can take your nail polish off without messing up your fingernails."
