Makeup is every woman’s basic need and we spend a huge amount of money on it. This doesn’t sound so affordable when you’re trying to save. Here are a few easy ways in which you can save money on your makeup without compromising on your needs.
Shop in bulk or larger sizes
We are loyal to the brands and makeup we wear. Since you know the makeup you’ll be using for long, but it in larger sizes or in bulk. This will take care of your makeup for a longer time so you don’t have to keep purchasing it every now and then and eventually help you to save some on it.
Try it before buying
How often do you purchase a lipstick and never use it because it’s not the exact shade that you wanted? Always try the makeup at the store before buying it to avoid spending on something you will never use. It is advisable to not buy new any makeup product that you haven’t already used before online. The products may not suit you or serve the purpose and since you cannot return the product after opening the seal, it will be a complete waste of money.
Invest on good quality makeup brushes
This could serve as a onetime investment. While shopping for the makeup tools and brushes, go for the good quality products so that you don’t have to keep buying them often. It may cost more when you shop but will help with the overall savings as they will last long and you won’t have to keep shopping very often.

Keep a check on the expiration dates
Different kinds of makeup has different expiration dates. While the liquid based makeup like your eyeliner expires quickly, cake based makeup can last up to two years. Before buying the product, check the expiry date and if you can finish it before that. Spending huge amount of money on a product that you won’t be able to finish before the expiry date doesn’t seem very affordable. In that case, go for a cheaper drugstore brand for that makeup product.
Fix the broken things
Instead of throwing away the entire makeup product in case the packaging or the product breaks, try fixing it. You can easily fix the solid makeup like your lipsticks, blushes and eye shadows. Collect and store the remaining in a container and keep using it as usual.
