Tips For Getting The Most Out Of Your Makeup
I receive a lot beauty and fashion related emails daily, some interesting, some not. This one arrived and I have to say it resonated with me. The photo above looks achingly familiar. Lord knows I have way too many samples and have made dozens of mistakes.
These are some simple suggestions for how to make the cosmetics you already own multi-taskers. It was created by Casey Casteline, Co-founder of the website eDivv.com, a site that allows women to trade, negotiate and barter cosmetics samples.

Take a peek:
- Mascara Wands
- Use as eyebrow brushes or spritz a little hairspray on them and use to tame pesky flyaways.
- If it doesn’t match your skin tone it may serve perfectly as an eye shadow primer.
- Lip Sticks
- Have your lipstick pull double-duty as a blush if you realize you’ve run out at the last minute.
- Powder Eye Liner
- Add a little water to powder eye liner to turn it into a liquid for a different look.
- Eye Shadow
- Shadows that match your roots can easily be brushed in to hide them if your hair has grown out a bit.
- Apply a dark shadow to your eyelashes prior to your mascara to give them a boost in volume.
- Plain Lip Balm
- Apply around the inside of the eye with your finger to act as a highlighter.
- Allow a light mist of hairspray to fall on your face after you’ve applied your makeup to set it for the day.
- Eye Cream
- Use a hydrating eye cream in the place of lip balm if you run out. It will keep your lips supple and give them a light shine.
