Pop-Lock-and-Socket

Bella Breakdown A funny meme that caused so much hysteria that when you went to show your friend you accidentally tossed your phone halfway across the world… let’s be real, we’ve all been there. Thankfully, the amazing humans at Popsocket created the coolest solution to this destructive problem. The Popsocket simply sticks to the back of your phone (or your phone case, you do you boo-boo) and extends into a perfect handhold preventing any chance of droppage.

But the struggle was real when it came to streaky foundation, at least until I found salvation with Beauty Blenders! Middle schoolers these days will never know the struggle of splotchy uneven foundation and raccoon-ish eyeliner.
