If you are frugal but still want to look great, there are ways to stretch your beauty budget. By using these tips, you could save hundreds of dollars on hair care, make up and other beauty products and still look chic.
Make your own face masks and scrubs. Check blogs and websites for recipes with ingredients that you can easily find in your kitchen pantry.
Use products that not only save money but also save you hours off your daily beauty routine. Buy multitasking serums that can moisturize, exfoliate and protect your skin all at the same time. Multi-use pencils that can be used on eyes, shoulders and lips are available to make you beautiful in a snap.
Shop at drugstores for beauty staples to stretch your budget. You can check their clearance bins, visit their sales events and ask for coupons to buy your favorite beauty products cheaply.
If you get your hair done every six weeks, sometimes you can stretch the gap between hair appointments in another week or two. So, if you normally have haircuts 10 times a year, you can still probably keep your look and at the same time save some extra cash if you have your hair trimmed seven or eight times a year.
Use you fridge to make your makeup last longer. Lip and eye liners are less likely to break if you store them in the fridge.
Visit your department stores' beauty counters to score some beauty samples. You can also get some free makeup sessions but just remember to say no when offered to buy their products.
