If you are a fellow beauty lover turned mummy, the chances are that pre-children you always had all of the newest makeup must-haves. However, now that you’ve got little ones to take care of, you most probably have a lot less to spend on yourself, which has meant that your beauty collection has suffered.
Is your makeup bag almost empty? Are you down to your last few drops of foundation? Is your eyeliner almost totally dried up? Are beautiful makeup brushes a thing of the past? Just because you’re a mum, that doesn’t mean that you can’t treat yourself now and then. Even if money is tight, that doesn’t mean that you can’t keep your makeup bag stocked up.
For all the best tips and pieces of advice for ensuring that your makeup bag stays stocked up even when on a budget, keep reading below.
Take advantage of samples
If you head to your local department store – Debenhams or House of Fraser – you should be able to get your hands on some makeup samples. Go around each makeup counter asking to test out their products, and then anything that you like, ask for a sample of to test out at home. Not only will samples allow you to test out new products and see what you like, but they’ll also help to stock up your makeup bag.
Shop the sales
When it comes to buying new products, it’s a good idea to shop the sales. If you want to get new beauty products for an affordable price, wait until they go on sale. Sign up to email notifications from your favourite stores, so that every time that they have a sale, you are notified via email. If you don’t want to wait until there’s a sale on, websites like www.plusvouchercode.co.uk can be useful. By searching these sites for discount codes, you can make great savings on beauty products, from lipstick to blush.
Become a reviewer
Have you ever considered starting a blog of your own? If the answer is yes, then perhaps now could be the perfect time to do so. By starting a blog and sharing product reviews, you can begin to work with brands and get beauty products sent to you in exchange for a review. That way you aren’t having to pay for your beauty products but are able to keep your makeup bag stocked up.
Ask for beauty products as gifts
Whenever anyone asks what you would like as a gift, either for your birthday or for Christmas, say that you would like beauty products. By having makeup and other beauty products as gifts, you can ensure that your makeup bag stays stocked up without having to break the bank. Instead of getting a gift that you don’t want, it makes sense to get something that you actually like.
So there you have it, everything that you need to know about keeping your makeup bag stocked up when you’re on a budget. Take note of the tips above, and you can ensure that you always have all the beauty items that you need.
