Wine bottles and glasses are not only for drinking, Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb recently found out.

Alle Connell, senior editor at Revelist, is such a wine lover that she actually found a way to incorporate it into her makeup routine.

Connell told TODAY that this idea that popped into her head at 2 a.m. — and she just had to try it. As an editor who is known for using hot dogs to curl hair, Connell was more than game to try it out.

While it's mostly about the amusement of trying something different and silly, there are also some real takeaways. Mostly, it's about using the natural shapes and curves of the wine-drinking accouterments as stencils while contouring.

For the wine glass:
