If you ever wear a full face of makeup, you have probably already experienced this unwanted occurrence at least once or twice.
That embarrassing moment when you realise that there's a small, but noticeable streak of foundation, concealer, or bronzing powder, deposited on the collar of a shirt, turtleneck sweater, or even an immaculate white T-shirt or some other garment in a light shade.
It's hard to escape it, especially if you're one of those people who tends to make sudden movements without considering the consequences.
