Hey Beauties.

Welcome back! Today’s Tip Tuesday will show you how to make the most out of your makeup and how to not waste any of it. Epecially when it comes to more expensive products it is necessary to use them in any way possible.



Use your mascara as eyeliner if it is almost used up.

Pick out a thin brush and dip it into the mascara tube. You can’t even tell the difference between this sneaky method and a “real” liquid eyeliner.

Use your blushes as eyeshadow.

We all know that cheek products like bronzer and blush can last a freaking lifetime. To make the most out of them, try and use your blushes as eye shadow. Especially if you have a lot of earthy, natural tones amongst your collection. You can create amazing looks by using them on your lids. I for one use MAC Warm Soul (left) in the centre of my lids.

Make use of your eyeshadow to seal up your lipstick. 

Speaking of eye shadow, take out your most natural-looking shades (for example the Naked Basics Palette by Urban Decay) and use them as a setting powder over your lipstick. It does sound weird at first. But it can prolong the wear of your lip color like nothing else. It hinders the color to bleed out.


I really hope those three little tricks can help you use your products more efficiently.

Have fun experimenting.

Yours truly,

Lana Hoang
