Foundations today cost hell lot of money. Thanks to Rati, we have really high expectations in terms of foundations these days. All IMBB lovers don’t settle for anything lower than MAC or Bobbi Brown and likewise. And when you are at the last drop of your foundation, don’t throw it. Add some drops of your face moisture and shake it vigorously. May be you can get some foundation stuck on the nooks and corners of the bottle.
2. Cut them out
Before you throw any of the makeup or skin care product which comes in tube packaging just cut them once. I am sure you will get lots of products stuck in the corners. With this you can easily survive a week or so.
3. Pressed powder
Give a new life to your pressed powder by sticking a tape to it and removing it after some time. Sometimes pressed power hardens because of your facial oil. So, the tape will remove the hard layer at the top and you will get lots of product inside.
4. Eye shadow
Revive the eye shadow palette by adding some rubbing alcohol drops and rub it with a small cotton ball. This will bring the eye shadow to life.
5. Crushed eye shadow
Time to fix a crushed eye shadow with some alcohol and set it with spoon; this will turn the eye shadow into a thin usable paste and you can use it again.
6. Lip gloss
Sometimes the rubber packaging which is common in few lip glosses can help you take out the last bit of product. You can apply it directly on your lips and set it with the brush or even use your fingers for the application.
7. Eye shadow into lip colour
If you love an eye shadow on your lips then this is for you. Dilute the eye shadow with a bit of alcohol or spirit on the spoon and then apply the thin layer as a lip colour.
I have seen my mother do it but never believed the logic. But that’s true. Keeping nail paints, perfumes in refrigerator will elongate their life.
Add some drops of your favorite perfume to your body lotions. This will give a new way of adding fragrance to your body.
10. Makeup Brushes
The same way you take care of your makeup similarly you should take care of the makeup tools too. Add some drops of olive oil and sanitize them regularly to use them for long.
11. Nail paints
Sometimes the brush-cap of the nail paint hardens so what you should do is, dip the top of the nail paint into warm water and the cap will automatically open. Also if the nail paint thickens up over time, add a few drops of thinner to get back the usable consistency.
So, these were some of the tips and tricks on how to use the makeup till the last drop; as we all say “paisa vasool”. Let me know if you loved the article reading it as much as I loved writing it in the comments down below.
