Make-up, cosmetics and beauty products are very personal to every woman. It can be so hard to find the perfect shade and brand of nail polish that does not chip off easily or the perfect foundation that works magic on your skin or even the perfect mascara that makes your eyes so special. Once you have found it, you want to stick with it. What would happen if you have an occasion coming up and your foundation bottle is almost empty and simply are not able to get a replacement on time? It can be so frustrating to see the level of product just below the pump tube and you need it now!
For just such situations, here are a few simple but ingenious hacks to help make your high-end beauty products last longer. Beauty products are usually packaged to look attractive and often a lot of product is wasted because it is stuck at the bottom of a bottle or a tube. Use a spatty to make sure you use your precious product up to the last drop! To make foundation last longer, always use a beauty blender sponge when applying foundation. This way you use less and get a flawless finish too. Always refrigerate masks and creams. This not only feels wonderful on your skin but also stays preserved for longer.
When there is just a little bit of conditioner left and not really enough for a full conditioning treatment, don’t throw the bottle away. Add a little water to it, shake it up well and use as a lighter conditioning treatment! You can even add a few drops of moisturizer to your favourite foundation if you are at the bottom of the bottle and find yourself in a pinch. Another great hack to save mascara that is going dry and getting clumpy is to add in a few drops of saline solution. It is safe and sterile and can refresh your mascara as good as new! Last bit of the perfect nail polish shade that you want to wear? Add in a few drops of thinner to create magic. You can also use the last bit of lipstick as a blush for fabulous moisturized shiny cheek bones with a perfect hint of color.
Go ahead, get the most out of your high-end beauty products. Try these simple hacks to make them last longer!
