6 Ways To Save Money On Makeup Products

With all of life’s expenses, it can be hard to justify pricey beauty products, costly haircuts and frequent manicures. Luckily, you don’t need to spend a lot to feel like a million dollars. Here are some easy tricks to saving money on beauty supplies, while still maintaining the quality that comes with high-end products. Best of all, some of these beauty hacks are products that may already be in your medicine cabinet.

    1. Invest in daily inexpensive staples that can be used for multiple purposes.

    There are many products that you might already have in your bathroom, that can be used for different types of beauty upkeep. Petroleum jelly (vaseline) works as an effective lip gloss, foot moisturizer and make-up remover all-in-one. Your regular hair conditioner can also be used as shaving creme and Johnson’s No More Tears Baby Shampoo can be an inexpensive way to clean your make-up brushes. Baby powder can be substituted for dry shampoo, getting rid of any excess oil in your hair. Make sure to shake out the brush first to get rid of any extra powder.

      2. Don’t overlook generic drugstore brands

      It may be tempting to buy the latest beauty product based on its brand name, but overlooking its drugstore counterpart is ignoring potential savings. Dr. Neal Schultz, founder of DermTV and a cosmetic dermatologist did a test at his local drug store that proved the house brand was almost identical in ingredients to its brand name twin and was up to $5 cheaper.

        3. Show loyalty to specific brands

        Both drugstores and well-known beauty stores have membership options where you are rewarded with points every time that you spend. One popular example is Sephora’s Beauty Insider, a free reward program that gives you a point for each dollar that you spend at their store. Once you acquire 100 points you are gifted with a free sample. Sally Beauty Club Card has a $5 membership charge per year, but this cost is made up in the savings and coupons that you receive on every product that you buy from this company. Are you a frequent hair color fan? L’Oreal Gold Rewards gives you a free hair color product after your fifth purchase.

          4. Lock-in your fresh mani and pedi

          A day at the nail spa is an instant mood booster, but only seems to last a few days until the inevitable chipping and peeling begins. For tried and true staying power Jane Park, owner of Julep Nail Parlors in Seattle, swears by locking in the color by painting the tip of the nail with a topcoat. The free edge is where the damage usually starts from and it also gives your nails a polished finish.

            5. Look for the deals on the ground

            Major makeup retailers like Sephora put their most expensive products at eye level, because this is where customers are bound to direct their gaze. The cheaper versions are located below their more costly counterparts, so make sure to look around for products that are equal in quality but won’t hurt your wallet.

              6. Buy in bulk

              Purchasing beauty products at wholesale retailers like Costco and Sam’s Club is an easy way to save money while still getting quality brands. If the idea of having three of one item seems excessive, split the cost and products with a friend. Don’t have a friend to share the bounty? Think of buying in bulk as a beauty investment, especially a product that you use daily. It will ultimately be cheaper than having to buy it individually and will also save you the time of having to make repeat runs to your local drugstore. It’s a win-win situation.
