Making the most of your makeup products!


Today I’m going to give you some tips how to make the most of your makeup products. As a beauty addict I do have a lot of makeup and beauty products, so sometimes I don’t use them as much as I would love to, just to get my money worth. So recently I’ve been using products more and making them practical for me and my routine. Let me know how you get the most out of your makeup products!

1. Using bronzer as a crease eye shadow
I’m sure you already know about this one. This is one of my favorite things to do in my makeup routine. It is so easy to do and it makes huge difference to the way your eyes look. Also bronzers are usually really pigmented and soft, so blending them is usually a lot easier than eye shadows.

2. Using blush as an eye shadow
Again I’m sure you know about this one. When I did this makeup look, I used blushes to create eye look just because I didn’t have eye shadows in those colors. But I love the effect it gave, I think it looks great. Also blushes are really hard to use up, so this is a great tip.

3. Using lipstick as a cream blush
Did you know about this one? My mom introduced me to this hack, she does this all the time. I don’t often do this because I’m usually all about having a lot bronzer on my skin, so blush is not really my priority. But if I’m going for simple look without bronzer then I like to use lipstick that I have on my lips as a blush just to make it match nicely.

4. Using fixing spray to make eye shadows or highlighter more pigmented
If you use a lot of drugstore makeup sometimes pigmentation is not really there. But this hack makes that so easy and not problem at all. Just spray the brush with a bit of fixing spray and everything will be fine, intense and pigmented.


5. Using cream highlighter as a cream eye shadow
I do this a lot, it makes really easy simple eye look. Just make sure you set cream highlighter with some eye shadow on top so it stays on the place for whole day.

6. Using eye shadow as a highlighter
This is one of my favorite things when it comes to makeup literally. In drugstore it is really hard to find nice and good quality highlighter, so why not pick some nude or champagne eye shadow. It will be cheaper and it will work just as good.

7. Using eye shadow as a contouring powder
You can easily find nice cool toned brown eye shadow to use as a contouring powder. It will be cheap and you won’t need to buy contouring palette and spend a lot of money. You can also use that eye shadow as a crease shade which is just great.

8. Using eye shadow as a brow powder
You already know that using brow powder gives really soft and natural brow look, so using some eye shadow from your collection that goes good with your hair color is perfect. You don’t need to spend money on separate makeup product, if you ask me that is great!
