1. Put a Lid on It

One of the easiest ways to get more out of beauty products is to cover up your products! We frequently put on our makeup in a rush and leave products out for the air, dust and all their buddies to make themselves at home. Leaving beauty products uncovered can cause them to soil before their time and we have to repurchase. Keep all of your beauty products covered when they’re not in use to save time and money!

2. Make It Last

Are you bummed because you’re all out of your favorite lipstick? Don’t worry girlfriend, I promise you’ve got a few more applications left in that tube! Use a cotton swab or lip brush to get to the bottom of your lipstick and get every last trace of your fave lippie! I know this tip won’t save you tons of money, but you’ll be getting the most of each tube of lipstick and that shows a lot of spending savvy!

3. Turn down the Heat

Aside from keeping your beauty products covered up, another surefire way to make beauty products last is to keep them away from the moisture and heat. We usually keep our makeup and skin care products in the bathroom because that’s where we usually apply them. That makes sense and all, but the best place for them is in a cool, dark place away from the shower and windows!

4. Pick up the Pieces

Don’t you hate it when you drop your favorite blush/powder/eye shadow and it breaks in little pieces?! Well, cheer up because you can easily fix this little predicament with some rubbing alcohol! Pick up your broken makeup and place it back in the container carefully. Add a few drops of rubbing alcohol and press the pieces back together. The product will reset in the pan and you’re good to go!

5. Get Picky about Cotton

If you use cotton balls to apply a skin treatment, remove makeup or nail polish, it’s very likely that the cotton balls are soaking up your money! Cotton balls absorb more product, thereby causing you to use more. Try switching to cotton squares or pads, which absorb 50% less product and are easier to use due to their shape!

6. Keep Razors Sharp

Razors cost an arm and a leg these days so I’m all for any tips on keeping my trusty razor sharper longer! The next time you shower, dry off your razor and soak the head of your razor in baby or olive oil. Soaking your razor in oil helps prevent the blades from rusting and keep it sharper for longer so you’ll get many more uses out of it!

7. Baby Your Brushes

I know we’re talking about how to make beauty products last but let’s take a moment to talk about makeup brushes. We pay a pretty penny for our brushes, so it’s vital that we take good care of them! Always tap off excess makeup and avoid blowing on them. Blowing on brushes can expose them to saliva and bacteria, which is not only gross but not good for your brushes, either. Tap off makeup and wash brushes regularly for cleaner, longer lasting brushes!

We spend a lot of time and money on our beauty products and tools, so we want to make them last as long as possible! Using only the recommended amount of the product, properly caring for and storing our makeup will help ensure that we can enjoy our beauty products for much longer. Do you have any special tips on how you get the most out of your beauty products?
