JCI Makeup: Beauty tricks to get the most out of your makeup


Thanks to a recent article by Buzzfeed, we learned about some beauty tricks on how to get every last drop of makeup! Whether you’re on a budget or just want to cherish every last bit of your favorite product, these simple tips can go a long way. We compiled a few of our favorites from the original article:

1. Get the most of your  favorite perfume by adding that last drop into a bottle of body lotion.
