I hardly ever wear makeup (lazy, etc.), but it can be a great thing for making women look more alert and well…prettier.
After taking a quick look inside my medicine cabinet (you don’t wanna see that mess, trust me!) it looks like I’ve obtained my cosmetics from a variety of sources.
Some things were "free," sorta. For example, I use the Clinique skincare stuff. Last fall, when you spent like $20 on products, you got a few makeup bags, a mascara, eye makeup remover, lipstick, etc. for no extra cost. So, I bought two face soaps and got the "freebies." It’ll be a loooong time before the soap needs replaced, and I’m actually using those freebies.
Other products I have are blush, a few lipsticks and nail polishes, powder/foundation and mascaras. However, most products I bought from the drugstore on sale and/or with a coupon.
When it’s time for me to buy a new product, I’ll likely get them from a drugstore on sale/with a coupon and pay for it with gift cards or extra care bucks, if at all possible.
How often do you buy makeup? Do you buy it as needed, or stockpile it? What are some frugal makeup methods you’ve discovered?
