Makeup can be expensive!  Here are some tips to that will help you save money on makeup.Those who wear makeup quickly discover that it can be expensive. There are some products that you feel are absolute necessities. Then, there are those “impulse buys” that you just could not resist. It all adds up! Here are some tips that can help you save money on makeup.

Tips to Save Money on Makeup

Do an inventory.
What cosmetics do you already own? Take a moment to do an inventory of all the makeup that is in your bathroom, purse, or personal space at your workplace. While you are at it, check for expiration dates. Throw out the expired cosmetics and the ones that look or smell bad.

Doing this will give you a very clear idea about what you do not need to buy right now. Save your money for the makeup that you use daily (and have run out of).

Use up what you have.
Don’t purchase more makeup until you have used up what you already have. Buy too much of the same type of product and you won’t be able to use it all before it expires. Avoid having to throw away unopened or half-full makeup. That’s a waste of money!

Look for sales and use coupons.
You can save money on cosmetics if you buy them from the pharmacy. For example, CVS has a loyalty card that gives you a bunch of coupons. Some of those coupons will be for beauty products. While you are shopping, keep an eye out for sales on makeup. Together, you can end up saving quite a bit of money on makeup!

Consider different brands.
Is your favorite brand of makeup one of the brands that tends to be expensive? If your budget is low, you may want to consider trying a different, more frugally priced, brand for a while. Read the list of ingredients that are in your favorite brand and compare it to the list of ingredients for a cheaper brand. They might be the same!

Look for free samples.
Target sometimes offers free samples on their website. Once in a while, they offer a free Beauty Bag that is filled with makeup and other beauty products. Those tend to disappear quickly, so grab it if you see it offered! Victoria’s Secret occasionally offers a free makeup kit or fragrance pack to people who have their store’s credit card (and who spend a certain amount of money). Check to see what your favorite cosmetics company offers.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
