You’re getting ready for a big night out. Your hair is done and makeup’s next. You want to keep your strands out of your way. But the creases. How the hell do you avoid those while keeping your blowout in tact?

Enter our imaginary best friend Chrissy Teigen, who recently Instagrammed a genius solution to our primping woes. Check it.

What you need: Playing cards and alligator hair clips

What you do: Push your hair out of your face to create a blank canvas for makeup, but before clipping it back, slip a playing card between the clip and your hair. That way, your hair won't get creased and you’ll be able to complete the most perfect cat eye ever created.*

*Decent by professional standards, groundbreaking by your own.
