From TLC’s What Not To Wear: Carmindy’s Money Saving Make-Up Tips

  1. If you have a drawer full of half-used lipsticks, don’t throw them away and buy more. Take a pillbox and dig out the lipstick colors and put them in each square. You’ll have a great carrying case and palette to create new colors like the pros do.
  2. You can use a great lipstick color as a cream blush. Choose lighter shades and blend on after foundation but before powder.
  3. No need to buy one shimmer highlighter shadow for the eyes and another for the face. A single shade serves both purposes.
  4. When your mascara is dry and not applying well, run it under hot water for 5 minutes. Good as new.
  5. Brow gel is a waste of money. Use regular hair gel on a brow brush or old toothbrush for the exact same effect.
  6. For a whiter smile, brush teeth with a bit of baking soda.
  7. Instead of expensive facial scrubs, use a small handful of regular white sugar. Just lather up your face with a cleanser, then scrub in the sugar using your finger tips in small circular motions.
  8. Q-tips work just as well as brushes. However, for really good, inexpensive brushes, visit your local art supply store.
  9. Vaseline is one of the best eye makeup removers ever.
  10. When your favorite shadows or blushes break, don’t throw them away. Put the remains in empty film canisters and use them like loose powders.
