We all want to save a buck or two. Check out these ten tips that will save you money.
TIP: If you buy a lipstick but don’t like the color, layer it with another brand to make it last longer and look better.
You can also add lip liner underneath or lip gloss on top to darken or lighten a shade that doesn’t flatter you.
TIP: Get the last of any liquid makeup out of a tube using hot water and a small container, like a contact case.
Simply melt the product by setting it in warm water, then pour it out into a more shallow container.
TIP: If you want to recycle your shadow containers but you still have shadow left, learn how to de-pot the MAC shadow.
TIP: You can add a few drops of saline to old mascara to make it good as new.
Add ten small drops into the mascara tube. Close and give a little shake. Gently swirl a few times. Good as new!
TIP: Makeup stores like Ulta and Sephora put the most expensive products at eye leve. Make sure to look below eye leve for things that might be the same quality but cost a lot less.
TIP: Ruse old brushes from more expensive brands in the new bottle of cheaper mascara.
The brush is often what you’re paying more for, so reusing can save you a lot of money. Just rinse your brush in hot water to get rid of clumps and you’re ready to go.
TIP: If your perfume is running low, pour the last few drops into a bottle of (unscented!) lotion to make it last longer.
