Imagine this scene: you're getting ready for a night out, your favourite playlist is on - life is good. You've just finished your hair and makeup but then, as you pull your top on over your face, you feel the collar take off half your foundation. Yep, we've all been there. Aside from being annoying as hell, especially if you're in a bit of a rush, you know it's also going to be a whole ordeal getting the stain out of your clothes the next day. Lipstick and white tops do not make for a good time.

Sound familiar? If so, have we got the thing for you. It turns out there's a super quick and easy hack you can use to prevent the ol' makeup-on-your-neckline dilemma for the rest of your days. All you need is a small square of fabric, like a face cloth or tea towel (preferably in a darker colour) that you don't mind getting marked, and you're good to go.

Simply place the material on the top of your head, making sure that the fabric covers the top of your forehead. Next, carefully pull the top over your head, being sure to keep the fabric in place the whole time.

Once the top is sitting pretty on your bod, you can simply remove the fabric square and admire your stain-free collar. Honestly, how have we never thought of this before now?
