Save money shopping for beauty products

No matter how many tubes of lipsticks I have, or how many eye shadow palettes, I cannot resist picking up a new one every time I walk past a beauty store, or even an online shopping website. It’s a curse, truly. Normally, this would put a huge hole in people’s wallets, but there are ways through which you can save a lot of money when you are shopping for beauty products.

For instance, beauty stores usually keep the more expensive make up products at eye-level. So, in order to find their cheaper products, you should look at the lower or higher shelves. If you are shopping for particular brands, go to stores like Debenhams or Selfridges or John Lewis, instead of the actual brand store. The former might have bigger sales on these products.


If you are more interested in shopping for beauty products online, coupons must be your best friend. You will be able to save a lot of money on the products or on shipping if you find the right coupons.  You should also keep an eye on beauty blogs and YouTube beauty tutorial channels- they usually share discount information with viewers. Many beauty blogs and websites have their own sales, where you’ll be able to pick up the products they’ve reviewed for a significant discount, as well.

These are the top five tips I live life by. I’m pretty sure I’ve saved hundreds of pounds over the years thanks to these.


Rescue your mascara with no effort!

You will not believe how much mascara can lighten up your face. However, I’ve known a lot of people who buy mascaras, use them very infrequently and then throw them away at the first sign of clumps, or brush dryness. However, there is no reason for you to throw away your mascara for such a simple reason. Here are some tips that will make sure your mascara stays almost new, and clump-free for a longer time.

  1. Do not pump the mascara wand. This will trap air inside and make the mascara dry out quicker. Instead, you should twist the wand and roll it out slowly.
  2. In case the mascara has gone a little dry, take a few drops of saline in a dropper and put it into the mascara tube. Shake it a little bit, and use it. You will notice that the mascara has become even again.
  3. In case there are clumps in your mascara, just run the brush under really hot water. This will get rid of the clumps in no time at all.
  4. Do not throw away the mascara wands from more expensive brands. You can keep the wand and use it on a cheaper mascara. Half the magic of the mascara lays in the wand, so you can make use of the wand for a longer time.

These are some of the most effective mascara tips- and you barely have to spend any money on these fixes!
