If you’re like most of us, you don’t have a lot of time to shop for necessities. Home, work, and family take up most of the hours of your week, and when the weekend comes you try to catch up on all the things you didn’t get finished during the week. If you’re getting exasperated from trying to keep it together, here are some tips to help you save time and money on your makeup need:
Don’t run out: If there are items you use every day try to keep a spare on hand at all times. When you open the second container put the item on your shopping list so you remember to buy it before you need it.
Know what you like and discard the rest. You probably have at least a dozen makeup items you don’t like and never use, so pitch them and stick with what you find effective. By thinning out your makeup drawer you’ll be less likely to forget what you need.
Buy online: Look for discount codes and coupons and then go to your favorite online retailer for your favorite makeup brands. By shopping online you’re not only going to find the shades and items you want but you’ll also be less likely to impulse buy like you do in the store.
Buy in bulk: Look for deals and stock up whenever you can. That way you can take advantage of deals when you see them, and you won’t have to pay top dollar for your favorite mascara or blush.
Look for clearance items: Stores often clear out items just because the season is changing, and you can take advantage of this. By combining discounts and sales you can pay next to nothing for the things you already use!
Try just one: If you’re considering a new brand buy just one item in the line. That way you’ll know if you like it and it’s not going to give you a skin irritation. Once you wear it a few times you can consider buying the other products in the line.
