7 Surprising Alternative Uses Of Your Favourite Makeup Products

It’s common that just when we want to try a new look, we realize we don’t have the right makeup product to make it work, or it has run out, leaving us devastated. If this occurs, do not give up because we are here to help you. 

Most of your favourite makeup products have surprising alternative uses, increasing your beauty essentials. 

Here are new ways to make your makeup multitask effectively. 

  1. Concealer 

Running out of eyeshadow primer is not funny. However, you can use concealer on your eyelids to provide an even, smooth base. The key is only to apply a dab. 

Concealers prone to creasing can make your eye makeup look cakey, so you don’t want to apply a lot. 

THE SAEM Cover Perfection Tip Concealer is perfect for effectively keeping your eyeshadows in place. This top-quality Korean formula is available in three shades and is ideal for pale to medium skin tones. 

  1. BB Cream 

A BB cream can glow up your face and neck. But did you know it’s possible to use it on your collarbones, hands, and legs? Apply a BB cream to give your skin a radiant and even finish, particularly when you wear sleeveless blouses and mini skirts. 

MISSHA M Perfect Cover BB Cream SPF42 PA+++ provides a flawless complexion due to its 3-in-1 formula: wrinkle repairing, whitening, and sun protection.


This BB cream is available in seven colours, so it’s easier to find your perfect skin tone match. It has the Korean Food & Drug Administration approval for its high UV protection. 

  1. Setting Powder 

Setting powders are commonly used to set your makeup, so it doesn’t crease throughout the day. Plus, they control sweat, shine, and oil production. But you can also use the setting powder as a dry shampoo. 


Apply setting powder on your hair roots and scalp. Then gently massage the product with your fingers or using a hair brush. Next time you need to remove oil and dirt from your hair, open your makeup bag and use a setting powder. 

You can try INNISFREE No Sebum Moisture Powder. This setting powder controls and absorbs excess oil and maintains moisture balance in the skin and scalp. It’s free of harmful ingredients such as talc, animal raw materials, mineral oil, artificial aroma, and dioxin.


Apply the No Sebum Moisture Powder on your eyes, cheeks, and lips to achieve more lively colours. 

  1. Lipstick 

A quick and super easy solution for instant rosy cheeks is to apply a dab of your favourite lipstick on your cheekbones. It’s best to use matte lipstick as a blush; avoid bright shades. 

Use your fingers or makeup brush to blend the lipstick effectively. Then use a tissue to remove excess. 

We love Mystery Berry from MEMEBOX I’m Meme I’m Mystery Blur Tint. This creamy tint makes your lips and the apple of your cheeks look flawless. It’s an ultra-comfortable velvet-matte K-beauty product available in 10 colours. 

  1. Mascara 

You can use mascara to touch up your eye makeup if you don’t have eyeliner. Swipe a bit of mascara on an eye spoolie and carefully apply an even line along your eyelids. Remember that sophisticated mascaras have saturated pigments, so it’s recommended to use a small amount and apply it on your eyelids instead of the waterline. 

ROMAND Han All Fix Mascara has four types: volume black, long black, long ash, and long hazel. We are obsessed with this mascara due to its nourishing formula that doesn’t smudge or clump. It’s also waterproof, so it lasts all day. 

  1. Eyebrow Pencil 

Even though eyebrow pencils are formulated for your eyebrows, they can work as lip liners. Eyebrow pencils usually come in neutral shades, making them perfect for delineating your lips. 

Also, you can use eyeliner as eyebrow pencils or lip liners. Be creative, as these makeup products are versatile.

We recommend the INNISFREE Auto Eyebrow Pencil. This eyebrow pencil is an excellent alternative if you run out of your lip liner. It has a silky texture to create the perfect definition. 

  1. Eyeshadow Palette 

Your eyeshadow palette is as good as your highlighting product. Dab a light eyeshadow colour to your cheekbones and collarbones to illuminate your skin. 

ETUDE HOUSE Play Color Eyes Bake House is the ideal palette for highlighting your skin. This warm eyeshadow palette includes glitter, shimmers, and matte colours, perfect for glowing skin.
