This year, we threw out a lot of makeup because of the pandemic, we couldn’t even apply much of it before it expired *sigh*. I understand your grief if you’ve had to part with your favourite mascara without using it more than once; I’ve been in a similar situation. It was difficult to throw out my favourite lipsticks, foundations, and mascara, but I had no choice because wearing expired makeup can cause skin and eye damage.
However, achieving that beautiful appearance throughout the holiday season necessitates a little bit of expenditure. If you’re a makeup junkie who prefers high-end products, makeup may be a costly habit. The feeling of being pampered can not compare to that of low-cost items, but it keeps your wallet full and doesn’t break the bank. It was during my college years that I began my love for cosmetics. As a student with a limited budget, I began looking for cost-effective options. So, if you’re short on moolah and want to try something new, is it, nevertheless, necessary to burn a hole in your pocket? Certainly not!
