Have you ever experienced anxiety after realizing you didn’t have all the products you’d need for a look you’ve always wanted to try? If yes, then dig into this list of trends that’ll save you some money and time. Also, if your collection of beauty products already cost you a small fortune, you might as well put them to good use with these trendy tips instead of throwing them out.
1. Eyeshadow to get easy hair highlights and a signature lip look
Have you ever heard of hair shadowing? No worries if your answer was no. It turns out you can apply eye shadow like a dry shampoo on sections of your hair to get quick, easy DIY highlights. The great thing about this is that broken pieces can be used as well, so nothing will be wasted. The internet has many stunning looks you can use as inspiration. All you’ll need is a high-quality palette like the eyeshadow palettes from Dose of Colors. What’s more? Turn your eyeshadow into your very own lip color palette. Mix it up and match to create a unique look that reflects your personality and style like no other.
2. Try petroleum jelly as a moisture barrier, makeup remover, and scent-enhancer
You don’t need to stick to a particular brand of petroleum jelly as any will get you great results, and here’s why. Petroleum jelly has occlusive properties. This means that when applied on the skin, it acts as a barrier to lock moisture in and physically prevents it from escaping. Simply moisturize after showering and then apply petroleum jelly to lock all that goodness in. Petroleum jelly is great as well for taking makeup off after a long day. Pure petroleum jelly is oil-based, providing enough slip, so makeup can gently come off without tugging that could damage your skin. Even waterproof eyeliner can’t resist its sweet charm. It can also help your perfume or cologne stay on much longer, according to experts. Go right ahead and stock up on your favorite brand.
3. Using lipstick as a blush and eyeshadow
Did you know that eye makeup is especially big this year? Why? Because that is the number one thing, people are going to see when you wear your face mask. That’s another reason to pay more attention to your eyes. So since you may not be wearing lipstick as much, you can use it as an eyeshadow or even blush. Lipstick packaging makes it super easy to apply to your eyelids and cheekbones. It’s also an effortless way to create stylish looks such as this attractive sherbet eyeshadow look.
4. Makeover with foundations and concealers that are the wrong shade
Foundations and concealers are not left out of the party. If you have a stash of foundations or concealers that are the wrong shade, then you know how exasperating it is not to have any use for them. Well, there’s good news. Instead, you can use them on your body to hide any blemishes you are uncomfortable with showing. Achieve glowing, shiny cellulite-free arms, legs, or shin in an instant.
There you have it! If you were wondering what to do with old makeup or want to invest in multi-purpose beauty products, your problem is solved. What’s not to love about a life-saving creative genius?
