It hurts to see your favorite eyeshadow getting expired, but you don’t necessarily have to get rid of the palette. We are not telling you to use the palette to apply eyeshadow on your lids but to create some coolest nail colors for yourself using the eyeshadow shades. Take any eyeshadow color from the palette, crush it into a fine powder, and put it in a bottle of clear nail paint. Shake the bottle to mix everything to perfection and let it rest for a couple of hours before using it.

Face oils

Using old face oils may leave your skin irritated, causing acne breakouts and rashes. Therefore, instead of using it for your face, make another product out of it that won’t cause any harm. You can easily use your facial oils to create body scrub, add some sugar into the bottle and use it to scrub your body and voila, you will have buttery soft skin, free of dead skin cells.


Lipsticks are one of the most important parts of our makeup kit, and no girl likes to see her favorite lipstick breaking down into pieces, it’s heartbreaking.
