Make-up landed on the carpet?

How often has your mascara or lipstick just leapt from your hand and landed on the (beige of course) carpet?

Speed is of the essence here. I swear by Boots Cucumber make-up remover wipes, but if you don’t have any to hand, mix some clear vinegar with double quantity warm water and dab, dab, dab (don’t rub as you could damage the pile) from the outside in.
