Cheap Trick 1: Baby Powder as Dry Shampoo.

Just sprinkle a little on your hair and comb it through really well. It will absorb any excess oil in your hair or on your scalp.
Price: I have a medium size bottle it only cost me about $2
Sold by: Dollar Stores, Drugstore, Amazon

Cheap Trick 2: Baby or Olive Oil to remove eye makeup.

I put a little on a cotton ball and my eye makeup wipes of pretty easily. Depending on you specific eye makeup it could take a few cotton balls. You can also use a dry cotton ball to wipe away the excess oil.
Price: $1 (I only get a trial size bottle because it lasts awhile)
Sold by: Dollar Stores, Drugstore, Amazon

Cheap Trick 3: Lipstick as Blush.

When I do this, I either swipe the lipstick across my cheek and rub it in really well or dab a little on my finger tips then rub it on to my cheeks. I always set it with a little translucent face powder when I’m done.
Price: I tend to hoard lipstick so prices do vary!
Sold by: Drugstores, Dollar Stores, Department Stores, and Avon

I will be doing a post on beauty from the kitchen soon. So be on the look out for it here!
