The world would be an amazing place if we had access to all the makeup our hearts desired, without breaking the bank. While I’m sure this is a reality for some people, if you are on a tight budget like me, or you just like saving money (also like me) then you need to learn how to be smart with the way you buy makeup.
One thing I did (that some of you may remember me talking about near the end of last year) was that I went on a “No Buy” streak for about a month and a half. I didn’t buy any new makeup, unless I ran out of something and needed it. I think that this really made me aware of how much I was spending on makeup alone, which in turn has made helped increase my willpower to not buy makeup on impulse, or at least wait until I can get a good deal on something. This is what I would normally suggest to people who want to save money, but it is definitely something that is easier said than done.
Therefore, I bring to you my tips on how to save money on makeup! I separated the categories into higher end makeup stores and drugstores, because I know that some people will only shop at either or. But as always, feel free to read through it all!
