Como hacer que tus productos y makeup te duren más!
- Foundation + Moisturizer = TINTED MOISTURIZER
Extend the life of your expensive foundation by adding face lotion to it and making a tinted moisturizer. If you think you’ve run out of your favorite foundation, chances are you haven’t. A decent amount of product can get stuck in the nooks of a glass bottle, so pour a little face moisturizer inside of it and shake the bottle up to get use out of any leftover foundation. If your base comes in a squeeze bottle, use the hack below to use up all of the formula.2. SCRAPING TUBES
Before throwing away “empty” products that come in plastic tubes, cut them open and scrape out what’s left. Use an empty jar with a large opening to store the remaining product; it will be easier to scoop out your product when you’re ready to use it.
3. GET EYE SHADOW TO ITS TRUE COLOR AND DISINFECT IT
Clean off residue on your eye shadow palette with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball. Pour rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle and then spritz the shades that look muddied. This not only makes the shades their true hue again, it also disinfects the shadows.
4. FIX CRUSHED POWDERS
Fix a crushed eye shadow (or any other pressed powder) with rubbing alcohol.Pour the rubbing alcohol into the product until the crumbles become a paste. Then, press them back together with the back of a spoon or your clean finger. Once the alcohol evaporates, your product will be solid again and ready for use.
5. REVIVE MASCARA OR CREAM SHADOW
Revive slightly dried mascara, gel liner, or cream shadow with saline solution.The recommended length of time to keep a mascara and gel eyeliner before tossing is three months; cream shadows are about a year. But if they get a little clumpy before their expiration dates, squirt a few drops of saline solution into their formulas to refresh them.
6. CLEAN FALSIES
Clean makeup and glue residue off of false lashes with a spoolie brush and rubbing alcohol. Gently run the spoolie through the falsies to pull the old glue away without ruining the shape of them. This way you don’t have to buy new ones.
7. FIX BROKEN LIPSTICKS
Fix a broken lipstick by melting it back together with a lighter. Hold the flame close enough to melt the broken edges of the stick (the bottom of the top piece and the top of the bottom piece) without burning them, press the pieces together, and smooth the seam with your finger before it dries.
8. EYE SHADOW + VASELINE = LIP COLOR
Mix a crumbled eye shadow with petroleum jelly to make your own lip color. If you don’t want to waste an entire eye shadow but think the shade would work better for a lip color, crumble it up and mix it with petroleum jelly for your own custom lip shade. Store it in a small tester container.
9. EYE SHADOW + SHEER POLISH = NAIL COLOR
Same goes for making your own nail polish shade out of an eye shadow. Pour a bit of the pigment into a clear topcoat, shake it up, and paint away. For a sheer polish, use only a little pigment and for a more opaque polish, use more.
10. BEAUTY PRODUCTS + FRIDGE = LONGER LIVES!
Store your nail polishes, lipsticks, and perfumes in the refrigerator to extend their shelf life. Heat and light can alter the formulas of your products and change their color, scent, and texture. Dark, cool environments are best for your polishes, lipsticks, and fragrances.
