As many a make-up wearer will know, achieving the perfectly winged-eye liner, effortlessly precise eyeshadow shading and teased eyelash curls deserves a blummin' medal.

For some reason, every time I come to put a smudge of black eyeshadow in the crease of my eyelid or apply the last layer of mascara, I end up with flecks of powder running down my cheekbones as if I've just run a Colour Run and panda-inspired spots dotted all over my lower lids.

Fortunately, we've just discovered the beauty tool of dreams which will transform your beauty routine forever – Shadow Shields.

No, this isn't some weird Game of Thrones reference, these are white half-moon stick on pads that you can apply anywhere on your face to help achieve the perfect application of make-up.

Applied on the cheekbone, the shadow shield will prevent eyeshadow from falling down your cheek, work as a guide for eyeliner flicks and stop makeup smudging on freshly-applied foundation.

Yes, that's right – you can put these pads on top of your foundation when applying eye make-up without smudging your hard work of primer, foundation, powder, blusher etc.

If that's not enough, you can also use Shadow Shields – available on Amazon and eBay – to apply lipstick, by applying the pads under the bottom lip and sweeping on a layer of lipstick or lipliner without looking like you've let a small infant loose on your face with a felt tip pen.

Huzzah!
