14 Easy Ways To Recycle, Repurpose, And Revive Your Old Makeup

    Admit it — you hardly ever use up a makeup product anyway. So why not save a buck and turn your eyeshadow into nail polish, and fix that cracked bronzer palette instead of throwing it out or spilling it everywhere?

    1. Melt old lipsticks together to create a rich new color.

    2. Fix cracked pressed powder, bronzer, or eyeshadow by pouring alcohol in it.

    3. Turn a cheap old eye pencil into a new liquid eyeliner.

    4. Mix pressed powder with facial moisturizer to make a tinted moisturizer.

    5. Mix old powder or eyeshadow with glue to create a sparkly paint.

    6. Turn a dried out lipstick into a tinted lip balm.

    7. Mix sparkly eye shadow with clear nail polish to make your own color.

    8. Pour the last few drops of a perfume into an unscented body lotion.

    9. Turn an old makeup compact into a solid perfume container.

    10. Salvage an almost-empty lipgloss by soaking in hot water.

    11. The same process can also revive a dried out mascara.

    12. Use an old liquid eyeliner brush as a nail art pen.

    13. When doing house repairs, use an old eyeliner pencil to mark wood and drywall.

    14. Clean off a mascara wand and use it as an eyebrow brush.
