1. Buy Eyeshadow Palettes Instead Of Instead Of Individual Colors
Eyeshadow is a really fun part of creating a statement making makeup look. If you love having a variety of shades and finishes for your eye shadows you need to stop buying individual eye shadows and opt for palettes instead. You may think that buying an individual eyeshadow for twelve or eighteen dollars is cheaper than buying a palette for thirty to fifty dollars. However, you can get ten to fifteen different shades in a palette and if you choose to buy individual shades you would only get about three or four for the same price.
You should also choose a palette that has shades that you would normally wear to make it practical if you only wear golds and browns don’t go for a palette that has bright blues or purples, choose a neutral palette. However, if bright colors are your thing go for a bright palette.
2. Mix Your Own Lipstick Shades
The lipstick that you choose to wear can completely transform your makeup look. Adding every shade that you could ever want to your collection is impossible unless you want to go thanks to your lipstick addiction. One great hack for the person who loves trying out new lipstick shades is to mix the lipsticks that you own to create new shades. It’s like being back in elementary school when you learned how to create colors and it won’t cost you a thing!

The solution to this makeup woe is simple, just tear off about an inch of tape and place it on your eye where you want your makeup to end. When you take the tape off your eye look will be immaculate!
4. Reform Products That Crack
