7 Makeup Tips To Save Money

Tip #1 – Pay good attention to skin care

This is the first advice I’ll give to anyone that is into makeup. Taking care of your skin is a priceless quality and no amount of makeup can compared to it. Dry skin, enlarged pores, blemish, etc must all be taking care of if you want makeup to look good on you. Your makeup may amount to nothing if the quality of skin care is poor. If you must invest on anything, it ought to be on top-notch skin care kits and you must use them on regular basis.

Tip #2 – When buying your loose or pressed powder, go for a darker shade and mix with some talcum powder

This is another essential tip most people don’t know about. Going for a darker shade and mixing it with talcum powder to get the appropriate shade saves you some money. Your powder will last longer and you will still get your desired results with it.

Tip #3 – For smoother application, mix a small quantity of high-grade moisturizer with liquid foundation

I learned about this tip from a friend of mine some years ago and the effect is super amazing. Doing this will save you from buying foundation regularly since the quantity you use each day is less when compared to the normal method. With this, your foundation can last for up to a year. Remember, this article is focused on spending less on makeup and still get an amazing result.

Tips #4 – Don’t use your fingers to apply cosmetics, get a brush for this

I believe you should know why I added this tip to my list. In case you don’t know, I’ll still pardon you…lol. If you use your fingers (which doesn’t even look good), you’ll be wasting a whole lot of your makeup which will eventually be washed away. But with a brush, you will use the right quantity needed and apply it on the exact spots.

Tip #5 – Go shopping at the right time

Are you wondering what this could mean? Don’t worry I’ll explain. Majority of the stores that deal on makeup kit usually have time they offer discount on their products. This can go for as low as half the amount of the original price. Why do they do this? Just to clear off older inventory and stock with new products. If your shade is not among those up for discount, you can go for the “too bright” ones and mix them with the lighter shade you own already to get your desired result.

Tip #6 – Play with colors

There are many things you can achieve with colors if only you’ll learn how to experiment. You may even go as far as mixing items such as blush, eye shadow, and nail polish to create a new color. This can give you a different look or even your favorite shade without spending any extra money on more colors.

Tip #7 – Visit your local cosmetic stores for a courtesy make over

Yes, some cosmetic stores render this service to their customers knowing fully well that they (the customers) will buy one or two products before leaving the store. This tip is essential especially if you want to give yourself a different look for special events.
