11. $ tip:
Makeup stores like Ulta and Sephora put the most expensive products at eye level.
Make sure to look below eye level for things that might be the same quality but cost a lot less.

Mascara wands can be used for cleaning jewelry, taming fly-aways, unclogging drains and more.

Sponges absorb foundation so they use it up quickly. Instead, apply with a brush or a cotton round then blend with a sponge. See more about how to apply foundation here.
