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.
