Get the most from your make up

I have been an Avon lady off and on over the years and during that time I have picked up a lot of hints.

One that I thought everyone knew was a way to make sure you get everything out of a tube of cream etc.
Always stand it on its lid if you can.
Once you think you have squeezed out all its 'stuff' cut the end off about two inches or 5 cms down.

Always use the product from the cut off piece first then slide this over the rest of the tube and use it as the lid. (pic 1)
As you use the product on the insides of the tube and can no long reach it, cut off a strip and put the "lid" back on. (pic 2)
You will be amazed at how much more you can get from you tube. It sill dry out quicker so use it quickly.

How many times have you come to the end of your lips stick and thrown it away.
Do you know how much further into the tube the lipstick goes?
Always use a lip bush and you will have weeks more of lippy.

Keep you make up in a dark place not out on the dressing table.

Use brushes rather than sponge applicators and wash them regularly and they will last you for years.

Nail polish will not go as lumpy if you keep it in the fridge.

One product you must not keep for ages is mascara. Thank about how close to your eye that gets and never share it with anyone.

Sunblock has a expiry date but you can still use it as an after sun body moisturiser so don't just biff it.

If some one has a shampoo, shower gel, bubble bath or cleaners they don't like pop a squeeze of it in the toilet brush holder (if its a bowl type holder) and you will always have a clean smell when you clean the toilet!!

If you have perfumes in bottles that are no spray ones that people don't like, eg aftershaves or free samples, pop them in air fresheners that are plug ins or for the car.

If I remember any more I'll add them
