You've been wearing earrings wrong your whole life and more fashion hacks the internet taught us

FYI, you've been wearing your new earrings wrong this whole time.

One Facebook user Joseph Ayoub has broken the internet by sharing an anonymous user's startling revelation - you're supposed to remove the plastic part when purchasing new earrings.

"After my 19 years of living, I have now realised you're supposed to take the plastic part off," they wrote.

Mind. Blown.

But it's not the only fashion and beauty hack the internet has taught us....


1. You've been wearing bobby pins the wrong way this whole time

Curvy side in. Smooth side out.



2. The real reason there's a fold on your baby's onesie

It was always assumed this fold made it easier to get over a baby's head, but one Reddit user noted last year that it actually helps pull the piece down past their shoulders. Which comes in especially handy if there's a mess.



3. How to conceal correctly

If you've been dabbing your concealer on simply under your eye, think again. Apply your makeup to a larger portion of your undereye and cheek.
