10 Ways to Save on Makeup

submitted on January 24, 2011 by psplove in "Member's Lounge"
For those who wear makeup on a daily basis, the cost can pile up easily. Check out these great tips from Money Talks News for stretching your dollar a bit and getting the most out of your makeup:

1. Lipstick Trick: when you only have a little lipstick left, scrape it into an empty clean container (Money Talks News suggests an old lip gloss bottle). Mix this up with other shades and apply with a lip brush. You could also add Vaseline to it to made a colored lip gloss.

2. Get More Out of Your Mascara: put your nearly-gone mascara bottle into a glass of warm water or heat it up a bit with a hair dryer to get more out of it.

3. Extend Foundation: use half the amount of foundation that you normally would and combine it with a dab of your facial lotion.

4. Use Free Samples When You Can: you can request these online or find them at department stores on certain days. Just don't be tricked into the "freebies" where you have to make a big minimum purchase to get something for free.

    I took an old mascara wand, washed it in hot water so there was no mascara left on it, and got myself an eyebrow brush. Works better than store bought brushes.
