Makeup, makes up for a lot of costs.
When we look at everyday expenses – often we overlook the process of getting ready. For a lot of women, makeup can be a costly everyday expense, and although it pays itself of over use.
Retail stores can draw up the price for regular items – simply by stocking it in their stores. We often fall victim to convenience, and more often than not we are the ones that suffer.
For example the retail asking price for a Clinique foundation is around $60, however when looking online at makeup superstores, you can find the exact same item for $30. We don’t have to necessarily skimp on quality just to save money – often we mistake saving for sacrificing. It is correct that you may have to reduce purchasing certain items in order to save – but quality shouldn’t be something that you have to reduce, if it’s not necessary.
Have a look around online, and don’t be afraid to ask for a better price. Depending on what makeup brand you use, you may be able to find your products for cheaper in stores such as Kmart and Target. Keep an eye out for discounts and deals – stores such as Myer or David Jones choose to offer “freebies” linked in with purchases. These “gift with purchases” can save you money on items you may have needed to purchase in the coming months. Unlike a lot of deals, these gifts with purchase are designed to reward you, rather than entice you into spending more on items that you do not need.
