  1. Ditch those brushes altogether

    Believe it or not, you don’t need a fistful of brushes to create a solid makeup look! Instead, apply your shadow, foundation, and even your blush with your fingertips. Some say that this bare-bones application actually makes the products last longer. That’ll save you some cash!

  2. Revive your crumbling powders

    If your makeup bag has taken a spill onto the bathroom floor, chances are you have been left with crumbling compacts and a whole lot of heartache. Instead of throwing your prized products away, give them a fighting chance with the help of some rubbing alcohol and a spoon. Works like magic!

  3. Make your own BB cream

    Those of you who are looking to cover up trouble areas AND improve skin tone should really consider making the switch from foundation to BB cream. Because this nutrient-rich makeup tends to be a bit pricey, we are in love with this DIY BB cream recipe. Spoiler alert: you’ll only need items in your current makeup kit to make your own.

  4. Rev up your eyelash curler

    This is one of our favorite best-kept beauty industry secrets! For super-full, curly lashes, simply hold your metal lash curler under a blow dryer for 10-15 seconds, or just before it gets too hot to touch. Give it a second to cool off, then style as usual. It’s like a hot curling iron for your lashes!

  5. Re-think your shadow application

    We don’t think we are wrong to assume that most makeup users swipe on their shadow with their eyes closed. Now, this method may seem like the obvious thing to do, but it’s not the most effective. The next time you opt for a bit of color on your lids, keep your eyes open, with your gaze focused down. Once you try it, you’ll see what we mean…
