Evamarie Lopez is a 16-year-old from a small town in California who says she "loves makeup." Recently, she came up with a silly but kind of brilliant hack for keeping her products off of her clothes when getting ready.

Evamarie told BuzzFeed News she had spent an hour doing her makeup and was wearing red lipstick. However, she wanted to wear a white shirt with a high neckline.

"So the first thing I thought was, 'I need something to cover my face and not smear my makeup,'" she said.

Her solution? A plastic bag over her head.

Simple, a little ridiculous, but effective. And no, apparently makeup doesn't get on the bag.
