Beauty On A Budget

I think its about time to revisit some areas of my life. I have lately been thinking of all the money I have spent on makeup, and let me tell you, it's ridiculous ! I have been thinking of ways to trim my budget in every department. It's not just about the money but my whole thought process on want vs. need, which seems to be coming down to less is more. As most of my friends know, I'm pretty careful with my money. Even that seems not good enough. I know there has to be ways to trim even more. 

I don't want my stash to look like this at the end of every month. 

I am thinking of buying no new products for the next 60 days, or every time I get the itching to buy, throw that money in a jar and tally it up at the end of the month.

So far I'm starting with all the pigments I have and the empty 26mm tins laying around, and I think I shall press them. Pigments are so messy, beautiful but messy. None the less I feel the need for a little project. I think with the wide array of colors I have, I truly would not ever need to purchase another eyeshadow in my life. I do so love eyeshadow. The eyes can be dressed up so pretty.I walk into MAC and I swear I hear angels singing ! lol  

Pigments however are so inexpensive and with such a wide array of colors. The only reason people I think don't buy them as much is because of the impracticality of using them. It's not easy for women to bust them out and use them like a compact. 

I will keep you posted on my project(s) and tell you all about them. 

Question: What are some of your money saving tips when it comes to cosmetics? I am not an expert so I could use all the help I can get !!! lol
