Double Time: Hairspray for Eyebrows, Eye Cream for Lips, Lip Balm for Hands
Saving money in this economy means it’s time to get creative. No longer do we have the luxury of buying whatever we want when we want it. However, skimping on beauty products is no easy task. By now most of us have our go-to brands and trusted favorites so what do we keep buying, what do we hold off on, and what do we buy for less? Just like with your wardrobe, a good rule of thumb is spend money on the basic pieces that will last and save on the items that will only be around a season or two. In order to translate this to the beauty world, think of your cleansing products, moisturizers, and essential makeup items as your foundation. Leave the crazy-colored eye shadows, lipstick, and blush for a cheaper cousin. Another effective way to save is using your beauty products for more than their intended purpose: lipstick as cream blush, lip balm for dry hands, hairspray for eyebrow gel, and eye cream for lips. Follow our lead and you’ll have double the benefits with half the cost.
