Testing out make-up products aren't always perfect, and even though you think you get them right, a lot of times, they are not as close as you would like them to be.
This TikToker explained some hacks on trying out makeup products in ways that show you exactly how they would look, feel and sustain on your face.

#1 Apply concealer to the corner of your hand
This is the best place to test out products to see if it cracks or creases. The corner has lines (similar to that under your eyes), so it would be an easy catch.
#2 Apply eyeshadow to your knuckles
To test out texture and how well eyeshadow sits on your skin, use your knuckles, because they're like the folds in your eyelid.
#3 Use a cotton pad and gently wipe a lipstick
Before testing, use a cotton pad to wipe the top layer of a lipstick, then fold it and swab a little onto the cotton pad. After gently rub the tip of the cotton pad all over your lips, to see what the color looks like on your face.
#4 Use mascara with a little bit of face oil
To test how smudge-prove a mascara is, rub some on the back of your hand, take some natural oils on your face, and then rub it over to see if it smudges.
