Everything You Need to Fix Any and All of Your Makeup Mistakes

We’ve all been there: You take the time to carefully master a makeup look like the perfect cat eye or a flawless smokey eye, and then it smudges — such a bummer! In an attempt to preserve all of your hard work, you end up smearing the shadow and liner around and making the situation worse. But never fear — makeup correctors are here. They’re like erasers for your everyday beauty mishaps, and these seven in particular can totally save the day (and your look!).


1. Yes to Cotton Eye Makeup Remover Pads ($8): Place one of these super thin, extra gentle pads over your pinky finger to precisely remove any mishaps, as in, when you went heavy-handed with liner or suffered from dreaded mascara smudges.

2. MAKE Twilight Lip Oil Remover ($12): Whether you get overzealous with your lippie or you just want to switch to a bare lip, this oil-based product is a must. Meadowfoam seed oil and glycerine keep your pout hydrated and work to condition the lips.

3. Hard Candy Stroke of Gorgeous Oopsy-Proof Eyeliner Eraser Pen ($5): The thin tip on this handy pen makes it easy to really target tiny mistakes like stray liner marks.

4. Real Techniques Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges ($6): These mini sponges boast a flat edge that’s perfect for smoothing out a harsh foundation line, and the pointed tip is well-suited to fit into the corners of your eyes and remove wayward shadow. Win win.

5. Almay Makeup Eraser Sticks ($5): What’s better than a cotton swab? A cotton swab with makeup remover on it. These tiny complexion-savers are soaked with a gentle, oil-free solution that takes off everything from waterproof mascara to the blackest of eyeliners.

6. e.l.f. Makeup Remover Pen ($3): Vitamin E, cucumber, and chamomile soothe your skin as you correct mini mistakes.

7. Urban Decay Ultimate Ozone ($18): Not only does this slick pencil easily remove any beauty boo-boos, but it’s a seriously solid primer that gives your products lasting power.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
