Better Nashville TV Appearance

If you had the chance to catch me on WSMV Channel 4's show Better Nashville Thurs. I went over "How to Stretch Your Beauty Dollars". Just in case you missed it here's a few tips I shared on the show plus a few things I did not have time to say.

6 Ways to Stretch Your Beauty Dollars

1.Alot of people like to spend alot of money on expensive face creams because moisturizing our face is one of the most important parts of our beauty regimen. But you don't necessarily have to buy the $50 and $100 face creams to get the results you are looking for. There are few products that offer the same results of the expensive face creams without the price.For instance Olay Renegerist Micro Sculpting Cream. It's great it keeps your skin firm and smooth it even restores elasticity.

2. Don't be afraid to hit up the Drugstore. Especially for items that you have to replace regularly like mascara. You should replace your mascara every 3 months. So instead of spending $20 on mascara go with a less expensive drug store brand like Covergirl Lash Blast that does an amazing job. It's my new favorite. As a makeup artist I have to replace my mascara every month so I love the fact that it only costs $7

3.If you have a drawer full of half-used lipsticks, don't throw them away and buy more. Take a pillbox and dig out the lipstick colors and put them in each square. You'll have a great carrying case and palette to create new colors like the pros do.

4. Don't throw away broken shadows-you can repair broken shadows or pressed powder with three simple steps. First mix the shadow with a few drops of rubbing alcohol. This will help bond the shadow back together without affecting the product itself. Next take a toothpick to flatten and arrange the broken pieces. Try to piece the puzzle back together as much as possible. Last let it dry till the next day. And your shadow will be back together and good as new. You can also press on it to make it look a little smoother.

5. There are some makeup brands that will give you free makeup for bringing in empty containers. So you are not only saving money but you are also recycling which is great for the environment. For instance MAC, for every 6 empty containers your bring them back they will give you a free lipstick.

6. Have a beauty swapping party- Get together with some of your closet friends for a night of pampering. Have everyone bring there unused makeup they never wear,try out some new colors and swap makeup with your girlfriends. It gives you an excuse to get together with your friends and you'll save money doing it.
