Do you ever find yourself in a makeup rut where you are sick of the products that, just the other day, you were obsessed over? I get the urge to try new products and extend my collection even further however old Mr Bank Balance doesn’t approve. So I thought I would share with you 3 tips on how to try new makeup without spending a dollar.
- Make the most of free samples. I have never been to a makeup counter that has refused to give a sample of a foundation.If you have the urge to wear a really dewy finish foundation, but your collection is full of mattes, go to a counter and ask for a sample. They are usually enough for a couple of applications and you haven’t spent any money! This is one of my favourite things to do.
- Swap with your friends. Say you have a lipstick that was a total impulse buy and yo are never going to wear and your friend has a foundation that is 2 shades too dark for them, swap!!! As long as everything is hygienic and sanitised there is absolutely no problem with it. When my friends and I are getting ready for a night out, I am always doing at least one person’s makeup and I like to use a mixture of my own and their makeup and that is the best way to try new things and see how they work.
- Shop your stash. This works particularly well if you have a larger makeup collection (like myself) and you have products that you’ve bought and completely forgotten about or used once and stashed away never to be seen again. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve rediscovered something that I already owned and amazed myself in regards to how much I love it. It sounds so silly but it works, I promise!
Those are just 3 simple tips on how to try new things for free, I hope you enjoyed them,
