So, when or if there’s a few quick tips to get the most out of your beauty products, you should be all ears. It’s not worth taking short cuts and getting those cheap products that don’t work with your beauty regime but more about purchasing those same products you love and finding dual uses for them.

Forget about trying to scrape the last out of those mascara tubes ladies and trying to get the last bit of lip gloss from the palette. Here are three easy ways to get the bang for your buck when it comes to your makeup and beauty products. It’s taking DIY and improvising to the next level.

For all those who think that once you shatter your powder palettes of eye shadow, bronzer, or blush you have to throw them away, that’s never the answer to solving this issue. Simply place the remaining pieces of your pallet back into its casing, add a few drops of rubbing alcohol, and smooth out the pieces so that that they will dry back to its original shape.

In a crunch for a little bit of blush? We all have had times where we just forget to pick up those beauty necessities that we need such as blush and need just a slight brush of blush to make our face pop. But little did you know, you can actually turn your favorite red or pink lipstick into your favorite cream blush. Just dab a little lipstick on the balls of your cheeks and blend the same way you would with blush.

They say the eyes are the doorway to the soul, so every girl makes sure to highlight her eyes when applying makeup. Its all about the eyeliner when trying to make your eyes pop and stand out. But during the summer its easy for your pencil eyeliners to become soft which causes excessive sharpening and before you know it you’re in need of a new eyeliner. So, to avoid wasting your money on new eyeliners, during the summer heat place them in the fridge to avoid melting and overexposure to heat.
