WTF: This Instagram makeup artist applied her foundation using something from the produce aisle

After the whole condom-over-Beauty Blender thing, we really thought we’d seen all of the weird makeup hacks. From knife contouring to spoons for cut creases, the hack game is strong on IG.

Sure, we may never try some of these techniques but you’ve gotta admit, they’re super creative. Hey MUAs, if you wanna use lube as a makeup primer or apply foundation with silicone bra inserts, we’re all about it! Keep the creativity coming. Who knows there may be a time where we have no other option but to apply a full face of makeup armed with nothing but pipe cleaners. YOU NEVER KNOW.

This next hack is a doozy. MUA Atreona Willis applied her foundation and concealer with a tomato and it looks damn good! We couldn’t have been more surprised to see how flawlessly she was able to blend her products. Is there anything a tomato can’t do?




Hack videos are designed to be half tutorial and half entertainment. For some reason, people still don’t get this.

"It's sad that people would rather spread hate than love in a world where none of this is real! At the end of the day, MAKEUP IS A FORM OF ART, and whether or not you respect the process, it takes time to sit down, record and then edit! It can take hours/days for content to be created just so some of you TROLLS can be entertained. If you don't like something, KEEP SCROLLING. I promise it won't hurt that creator's feelings. If someone wants to beat THEIR FACE with a condom or a Washer machine or their favorite chocolate cake then LET THEM LIVE😂😂"

You can see the hack video below. Trust us, you’ll be impressed!

If you plan on trying this hack, Atreona suggests using a smaller tomato than she used in the vid. If you’re stocking up on tomatoes anyway, keep in mind they have amazing benefits for skin. Mix tomato pulp with yogurt and oatmeal for a brightening mask or just rub tomato halves directly onto your skin. Oh, and if you wanna say to hell with it all and make a Bloody Mary, we’re down with that, too!
