A tip from the "Modern Girls Guide to Life Show"

They consulted a M.A.C. cosmetician on how to reuse old makeup. I take it a step further. I think the easiest way to break it down is combining the old to make new updated makeup.

This is what I do:

1. Scrounge up my saved mini containers: baby food jars, contact lense containers, etc.

2. Use powered makeup as "pigments"; ie: bronzers, blushes, eye shadow. Place close together in one area.

3. Gather your lotion remnants (those bottles sitting in your beauty cabinet that you haven't used for a while but can't bear to throw away). You can also use leftover sunscreen & vaseline (for lip colors.) Place together in an area next to the "pigments".

4. For the pigments that you are sure you're going to "revive": take them out of their packaged containers and makes sure you work out the clumps.

5. Use your imagination to combine the lotions with the pigments and put them in your minicontainers. (I.E. old blush mixed with vaseline = colored lipgloss)

6. To use up old lipstick: use a brush to get the stuff in the barrel. And if the color is not right, add a little of your new "colored lipgloss" to the old lipstick.
