First of all, I’ve totally used lipstick as blush! When I was in ballet as a kid, the makeup artists would use lipstick as blush for more pop/stick.

I’ve also used lipgloss as eye brightener/eye shadow. A sheer, shimmery nude, gold, or brown gloss is great for an instant pick-me-up. I just dab a bit in the inner corner of my eyes. 🙂

I use MAC’s so sweet so easy on my cheeks and lips at the same time very frequently, though I think it’s meant to be like that.

I’ve used a shadow as a lip color before my lipstick collection was as big as it is now. I’d dab it on wet and then put a clear gloss over it to make the texture correct–it makes your collection of colors so much bigger!

I use a cream eyeshadow to fill in my brows. Even the lady at the counter was like, “What?!?” when I told her that. :] Too bad it was discontinued recently. I had to buy a few backups.

All the time. I mix different lipstick colors to make eye shadow bases, blushes, and I use some of my blushes/cheek highlighters as eye shadows and vice versa. I also use my eye liners as lip liners depending on the color that i’m trying to create. I love experimenting with my makeup and finding different ways of creating my own unique colors.

I’ve used my Laguna bronzer as eyeshadow before, nice crease color (:
& blush on lips, and lipstick as blush (used sanitarily, lipstick not directly on cheek). Why not make the most out of your money?

Just eyeshadows/bronzers/highlighters are all interchangeable in my makeup routine. I use my NARS Laguna Bronzer as an eyeshadow for my crease area frequently when I’m kinda lazy. haha I use MAC Omega eyeshadow as a contour powder for my nose sometimes cuz it has a grayish/brown tone to it.

I’ve also used lipstick as blush when I’ve forgotten to put blush on. I use Chapstick to groom my eyebrows.

I am pretty sure I use Fix+ in every way shape and for possible, and more so then how it’s advertised to be used. I also use studio fix (mac) foundation powder in a shade lighter as a conceal with a concealer brush. Works better than most of the cream concealers and last a lot longer!

ALL the time: Eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows. Lipstick as blush and as a cheek highlighter when it’s light and shimmery. Blush as eyeshadow. Lipliner (Red, purple) as eyeshadow base. Eyeliner (black) as lipstick.

Lipstick as blush, e/s pigments even blush as lipcolor, eyeliner as lipliner and vice versa, also lipstick as paint.

I use the original UDPP before I apply my concealer and it works awesome! It helps the concealer stay in place for the whole day and prevents it from looking cakey!

I use eyeshadow to fill in my brows, lipstick as blush, lipgloss or a shimmery light eyeshadow as highlighter. During summer I sometimes also use my bronzer on my eyes as all over color or just a pop of warmth in the crease. I find that looks really nice on tanned skin.
