Know When To Hold 'Em, Know When to Throw 'Em
Deciding which beauty products are worth salvaging and which should meet their maker can save you time, money, and, of course, priceless space in your makeup bag.
Here's what you must know about which products to keep and which should go...
Save: Once empty, hold onto a few containers that previously housed cosmetics ranging from loose powder to loose eye shadows and the like. Then, the next time your favorite solid blush or powder eye shadow shatters, simply stow the left over pieces in one of your used containers and your favorite color lives on as a loose powder instead of a solid. I recently used this trick on a just-right-hue of blush that I picked up in Paris. When the blush tragically shattered, and I couldn't replace the product online, nor convince my husband that a return trip to the City of Lights was warranted, I stored precious pieces in a container and grabbed myself a brush blush. Voila!
