Oooohhh, we love budget beauty tips. Love them to the max. We found some of these and compiled them for you. All of them seemed cool except for that antiperspirant tip.
  • Use antiperspirant on face under foundation to make it last longer on your face, thus saving you re-applying throughout the day.
  • Scrape remaining lipsticks out of tube, place inside pill box or small clean paint pallet and then put in microwave for about 10 seconds at a time (can take more than one try to melt properly) until they are all nice and formed to new container. Place in fridge for approx. 4 minutes.
  • Nail polish is getting low… add one or two small drops of polish remover to the bottle, shake and there you go! A few more coats!
  • Dried out mascara can be heated up to work again. Use hair dryer or soak container in hot water.
  • Can’t afford leave-in conditioner for dry hair? Apply a small amount of vegetable oil to your hair, comb it through, let it sit for about 15 minutes and then wash and condition as usual.
  • Store lip liner and eyeliner in the refrigerator to keep them from drying out.
  • Sharpen the edges of old tweezers with sandpaper.
  • Take old perfume bottles and add water to them, shake up, and now you have a light body spray.
  • Puffy eyes or skin use Preparation H.
  • If you can’t afford oil-absorbing sheets, use toilet seat covers instead.
  • Drop of honey on a blemish, cover with a band-aid and leave overnight.
  • Conditioner can be used for shaving legs when you’re out of shaving cream.
  • After shaving down below apply solid deodorant (not gel) to the area, helps combat ingrown hairs.
  • Use a little bit of Vaseline and then apply eye shadow, it’ll look more vibrant and will look more liquidy instead of powdery.
  • To help whiten your teeth, mix a little baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to form a paste. Use once a week! Also, drink lots of water.
  • If you are in a hurry and don’t have time to wash your hair, put a little baby power in greasy areas, it absorbs the grease and your hair looks fresh. =)
  • If you are applying makeup during the summertime, but it keeps melting off, stick your face in the freezer a few times to freshen up. It saves time, and you don’t have to get your foundation or compact pads from getting greasy and using them up!
  • To dry nail polish in a hurry, spray nails with PAM Oil Spray. (note: this really does work)
  • Olive oil can be added to bath water for a skin softener.
  • Toner/Astringent—Use witch hazel instead. No need to dilute—use full strength. You can also rinse with a splash of Apple Cider Vinegar after cleansing—it balances out the ph of your skin.
  • Cut back on the amount of shampoo you use. Do the same with toothpaste. The manufacturers want us to use more, so we buy more.
  • Keep your pantyhose in the freezer, and they will last longer. (note: remember to take it out at least 30 minutes prior to wear, so you don’t freeze your gams off)

  • For great lotion, mix one-part lotion with one-part vaseline. It works better than plain lotion, and, depending on the cost of your lotion, you can stretch its value. (Note: This totally works)
  • To prevent hair pins from falling out, bend one prong in a “V” about halfway up and insert in hair. It will stay.
  • Old lipstick tubes, thoroughly cleaned, are great for purse-sized pill boxes or for pins.
  • Use hydrogen peroxide as an inexpensive nail bleach.
  • For an excellent facial, mix dry oatmeal and water into a paste and spread on face. Lie down and let it dry. Wash off with warm water.
  • Instead of using pimple-shrinking treatments, try an ice cube dipped in vodka. The cold shrinks the swelling and the alcohol helps to dry the spot.
  • Store makeup pencils in the fridge so they do not crumble when you sharpen them.
  • We use a body wash cloth in the shower. It acts as a body brush, wonderful of your back which you cannot reach too well, acts as a daily exfoliant and makes shower gel go further.
  • Make lipsticks last longer by mixing with lip balm.
