Default Money Saving Tips!

Every start of the new year, I sort through my beauty products and toss out old dried up tubes of mascara, cases of once-pressed but now crumbled blush, and almost a dozen "empty" tubes of lipgloss and chapstick.

If you're like me, it's sort of a bittersweet process to go through. Yes, I do get excited that I now have a reason to go out and buy more...but obviously there are drawbacks. Spending money isn't exactly one of my favorite past times. Another thing, I frequently find myself going back to the same store to buy the exact same product and much to my dismay...they've decided to discontinue it!

So what to do?

Well, here's a video that I found browsing youtube that might solve some of your problems!


A simple tip, but definitely really smart and cost-efficient.

*Though the youtube user does this with only lip gloss, other users have commented that this also works great with mascara tubes that quickly dry up, as well as gel and liquid liners! I'm sure the same goes for liquid foundations, concealers, etc.

Now if only I could figure out what to do with my poor smashed up blushes and eyeshadows...

Thumbs up Money saving tips from top stylists

Some good money saving tips!

Exfoliate with sweetener.
"You don't have to spend money on pricey store-bought scrubs. Mix brown sugar and honey into a paste to buff your body smooth." —Makeup artist Kimara Ahnert

Brighten your hair for mere bucks.
"An apple-cider vinegar ($1.29 at the grocery store) rinse works like clarifying shampoo and leaves your hair with great shine." —Celeb hairstylist Kristin Ess of Warren Tricomi Los Angeles

Smooth skin with olive oil.
"Use regular olive oil to get skin supersoft. Put a few drops on a cotton ball, and dab on flaky spots, avoiding any breakout zones. Then steam your face over a hot bowl of water to help it sink in." —Jennifer Buchina, director of Euphoria Spa, TriBeCa
