Let’s face it, keeping up with trends and trying to get our make-up to look just right costs a pretty penny. These thrifty bloggers are breaking the mold with hair-raising and downright hilarious alternatives to conventional make-up norms. We had a good laugh at some of the techniques while watching them experiment with household products to apply and set their make-up – but they might just be onto something! If you can get over how wacky they are, that is.
Trying to get your contour to look on point but you don’t know where to start? Cue YouTubers and a no-holds-barred attitude to switching up their make-up routine – and using a ton of kitchen essentials to do just that. The beauty vlogger behind Nikkie Tutorials gets right in there with all the crazy techniques and created the perfect contour with a spoon, a brush and some product. Simply place the spoon on the highest point of your cheekbones and run your brush down the contours of the spoon. Trying to shape your forehead just right? How about using a fork to guide you? You might as well go all out and use your whisk too…

While we’re in the kitchen playing around with spoons, blogger Brittney Foley from the Beautifoles blog made quite a name for herself when she attempted to use a plastic spoon to get her eye make-up on fleek. It acts as a nifty stencil and perfectly outlines the areas you want to apply your eyeshadow. Bonus? It also helps you get that perfect cat eye. We’re definitely going to give this one a go!
