Diply 15 Dec 2017

Unfortunately, not everyone can wake up looking like Beyoncé or Gigi Hadid. Not all of us are superstars and top models!

But luckily, other people who wake up looking like a potato know all the genius hacks that come along with faking those "I woke up like dis" selfies.

And after you see these tips, you'll want to become BFFs with all of those people.

1. If you want to become a beauty guru but don't want to shell out the money for a SiliSponge, don't worry.

Just fish out an old padded bra, cut up the bra insert, and slap that foundation on, girl!

Honestly, Kim K should get on board with this technique.

I can barely handle a little bit on my sushi, so you'd better be brave (and extremely careful) if you even want to attempt this.

8. Tired of your cleaning products going to waste? Fear not! Just use the soft side of a kitchen sponge to blend out your foundation.

It's basically the same as a Beauty Blender, right?! Ummm...

9. It is a truth universally acknowledged that nobody likes to clean their makeup brushes. So why not hire some a friend with reasonable rates to do it for you?!

This woman needs to win all the awards right now.

10. Why use a curling wand when you can curl your hair with a million extra steps?!

I fear for her hair. And also, it would be much easier to just use a curling iron.

This woman used a matte eyeshadow and created a whole new hairline for herself!

Stealing. This. Right. Now.

14. Make some hard boiled eggs for your stomach but also for your face!

Peel off the shell and start beating that face to perfection. Honestly, why would you waste a good egg on your face? Stuff your face with it instead!

15. If it's that time of year, spread some holiday cheer on your face.

Literally, who in their right mind would use a beautiful glittery Christmas ornament to apply foundation? OH RIGHT, BEAUTY GURUS.

16. Why use makeup brushes, makeup sponges, or your finger to apply face makeup? Just use your very expensive heels.

Instagram | @sadiaslayy

I mean, Christian Louboutin heels are very expensive, so you might as well try to make them multifunctional. Get your money's worth!

17. The haters gonna hate, hate, hate and the makeup lovers gonna bake, bake, bake.

Normally, you'd bake your face with setting powder, but baby powder is cheaper than anything you'd find in Sephora!

18. If you're drowning in $100 bills, congratulations. Just really shove it in everyone's faces by also using those bills to contour your face.

Instagram | @sadiaslayy

I'm rendered speechless. My first instinct when holding a stack of bills is definitely not to put them on my face for makeup.

19. If you jumped on the Fifty Shades of Grey bandwagon a couple of years ago, don't be embarrassed about it. 

Instagram | @sadiaslayy

Just keep the book in your makeup drawer and pull it out to contour. Nobody will snoop in there and expose you as a fan!

20. And finally, before cozying up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate, use some of the powder to get that sharp Kim K contour first.
