As new beauty products release at an ever increasing pace, sometimes it can get easy to forget what we have or favor new purchases over long-time favorites and other past purchases. Whether you have a streamlined set of products or everything but the kitchen sink, I think there’s a tip that just might help you get a little more enjoyment out of the makeup products you already have. I’ve broken out my tips and tricks based on what might be the roadblock to using more of what you have already. These are exercises in “shopping your stash” but look at reasons for doing so that go beyond saving money (or just not acquiring more products).
What is shopping your stash anyway? Instead of purchasing something new and shiny, you turn to what you own to find something similar or a combination of products that can achieve a similar effect or look, and it also works for those who often find themselves wanting something new but are trying to reduce purchases. It’s really about using what you have to satisfy your current needs or wants.
