Make-up for only Pennies.

Image,Here are some recipes for make-up on the cheap,and a few tips on how to get the most out of your make-up.                                                                   Have you ever opened up your make-up bag only to realize your press powder,or shadow was all crumbled.Whether you set the bag down hard,or just have some michevious youngsters,you no longer have to throw it away.Just add a few drops of alcohol to the powder and let it soak in.Press the powder back in place with a spoon.Let it dry a day or two and voila no more loose powder.                                                                  I found a great homemade recipe for transculent face powder which will only cost you pennies!Use 1/2 a tablespoon of cornstarch,and 1 teaspoon of baby powder.Just stir the two together and store in an empty make-up container,or tin.If your someone who needs a little extra colour use 1/8 of a teaspoon of a powder foundation that suits your colour.                                                                  Have you ever priced the cream shadows,and blushes they are way over priced for me.I just use a little bit of lip balm in my shadow and blush,and then mix until you get the right consistency.The possibilities are endless you can mix colours together for your own unique look.                                                               The next recipe is for homemade gloss,use your desired amount of vaseline and a small amount of honey.Microwave in a small bowl only until it’s liquid.Let cool.It’s a great moisturizing gloss,I love it!If you want colour use some old lipstick only a little during the melting process be sure to give it a good stir.                                                                  This lip gloss is good for kids,chocolate flavoured gloss.Use the desired amount of vaseline melt in mcrowave until it’s liquid.Then stir in 1/2 teaspoon of cocoa powder to taste.Let cool,and put in an empty lip gloss container.Makes a great gift in a nice container.                                                              Too make your mascara last longer add a couple of drops of saline solution,or sterile water into your mascara when it seems empty,or dry.This makes it last much longer.I usually do this twice before discarding.They tell you to throw your eyeshadow out about every 6 months,instead every 3 months put your eyeshadow in a sealed container,leave it in the freezer overnight.This will kill all the germs and bacteria in it.That way you can use it until it’s gone!
