5 Tips for Beauty on a Budget
Size Matters - 2 of 5 Tips for Beauty on a Budget
You don't always have to buy in bulk. If you're counting coins, you may have gotten into the habit of buying industrial-sized necessities for your home. It makes sense to buy nonperishable food and household products in large sizes, but it's not necessarily smart to do the same with beauty products.
Look at the cost per unit and think about how long it will take you to finish that tube of lipstick or the bottle of perfume.
If it's an item you use every day, then consider upgrading to a larger size, but only if the cost per unit is lower than the smaller one. If it's a special occasion product like fancy perfume or a trendy shade of lipstick, then stick to the smaller size.
Go With Stylists-in-Training
Stylists-in-training can you give you better value for money. Even the world's best hair stylists were once students.
Sign up to be a hair model for a budding beautician, and you can get a great hair cut for a fraction of the cost.
Reputable training programs will talk through your haircut beforehand and supervise students so that more experienced stylists can jump in before you end up with a bad cut.
The Best Products Are Free!

After all, Mother Nature was the original beauty queen!
