#3. Helps to thicken eyelashes
Every one of us wants to have thick eyelashes, and with Q-tips we can achieve the same. Once you have applied the coat of mascara, apply one coat of translucent powder by using Q-tip and again apply another coat of mascara. It will also help to keep your mascara all night long.
#4. Makes travelling lighter
These Q-tips will help you to get rid of carrying a heavy makeup kit. Use the Q-tip with your favourite eye shadows, keep it in a (Transportation Security Administration Approved) plastic bag, and apply it as and when required. Also, if you want to avoid carrying your perfume bottles, you just need to spray your favourite fragrance on a Q- tip and keep it with you. You can apply it later over your pulse points.
#5. Apply sunscreen in hard to reach points
You can use the Q-tips for applying sunscreen in the areas that are difficult to reach like hair parting line and ears.
#6. Helpful in applying medicine to the affected area only
If you have marks or pimples on your face, you can use an astringent containing salicylic acid and apply it directly on the affected area by using a Q-tip, keeping the unaffected area clean.

You can apply concealer with the help of a Q-tip for hiding the under eye circles. This would make your job of hiding the eye bags quite easy!

To make your eyebrows thicker, apply olive oil directly with the help of a Q-tip. You can simply massage your eyebrows with an oil frenched Q-tip. Applying olive oil in the night and a little massage is the best key for thick eyebrows.
