Frugal Beauty Tricks With Lipstick


Visitors: 211

What do you do if your favorite lipstick melted in the summer heat?

Don't throw it away. That would be wasteful. You can still use it with the help of a lip brush. No doubt, it wouldn't be as glamorous or convenient as slicking it on straight from the tube, but you can still get the pretty look by dipping your lip brush into the melted lipstick and painting it onto your lips.

You can also turn some of your lipstick into a lip gloss.

Do you have a tiny travel size cream jar that's empty?
Wash and dry the jar. Then fill half of that jar with vaseline, that multipurpose petroleum jelly that every home should have. Use a clean brush to scoop some lipstick and mix it with the vaseline. For a light hint of color, a little lipstick should do the trick. If you want more color, add in more lipstick. You can even combine more than one lip color to get your ideal shade, for your perfect lip gloss.

Instead of a cream blush, you can save money by using your favorite lipstick as a cream blush. Just take a tiny dab of lipstick and apply that to the apples of your cheeks, then blend it in for that rosy glow. No need to worry about whether your blusher matches your lipstick. By getting your lipstick to double up as cheek color, you'd be certain your lipstick and cheek color match. Only catch is that if you have acne prone skin it might clog your pores. If you are prone to acne, you should stick to powder cheek color as lipstick on cheeks might give you pimples.
