When it comes to buying makeup products, it can cost you a lot of moolah. Did you also realize that you spend a lot of time getting all dolled up? You want to look pretty but at the same time not spend all your hard earned money on makeup. You have to eat too. There are many ways to save money and time when it comes to cosmetics. You just have to get creative and not be afraid to break a nail while doing it. Okay, you won’t break a nail, but you might break a sweat when it comes to not purchasing three bottles of one product just because they are on a 10 percent discount.
Here are 10 ways that can help.
The Longer The Hair The Longer The Bill – Save time and money with hair that you can manage and take care of without going over budget. I’m not saying that you cannot have long hair; I’m just saying that it will cost you a lot more money and time to maintenance it.
No More Name Brand – All I have to say is that makeup like mascara can be found at local drugstores for $6 dollars. Stop buying it for $25 dollars at department stores. It will do the same thing.
Buy Mutli-Task Products – For $40 bucks you can get a NARS The Multiple makeup products. Why? It saves you a lot of time and money because you get to highlight your cheekbones, use it as a lip stain, add some blush to your cheeks, and sculpt your cheeks. Plus you can use it as eye makeup too.
Wipe That Off Your Face – A cleansing wipe that not only removes makeup delicately, but also tones and moisturizes your skin; does that exist? It sure does and you can get them for $7 bucks. They are called No. 7 Good Thinking 4 in 1 Wipes. LOVE THEM!
Recycle Girl – Not only do you get a free lipstick from MAC when you recycle your old makeup containers, you get to check out what other products to add to your ‘buy me later’ list. You can also use your old makeup containers for homemade scrubs, and lip-gloss.
Cut Once Save Twice – Cut makeup wipe, cotton balls, or sponges in half. You save money because you will get double for what you paid for. You really do not need a whole cleansing wipe for your face.
Get Creative – Out of blush? Use lipstick. Running low on shampoo? Mix all the shampoos together. No shaving cream? Use conditioner. Out of deodorant? Use lavender oil. No lavender oil? Then go get deodorant.
Now that you know how to save time and money on your cosmetics, your life will be much simpler and you will have more money to spend on other things…like food. Heck, if life ever gets tough, remember that blueberries stain. So you can use it as a lip stain when you eat them.
