10 Ways To Reupurpose, Revive, or Recycle Old Makeup

Don’t you hate it when you’ve got a bunch of expired or unusable makeup cluttering the back of your drawer or dressing table. You feel a deep sense of regret at the thought of having to throw all those almost-full containers away because you spent more money on them than you should have and used them way less than you should have.

Don’t worry! There’s plenty of ways you can repurpose, revive, or recycle old makeup to turn it into something entirely new and usable. This way, you can also save yourself a bit of money from having to even more expensive makeup which you’ll probably also use only a few times.

Here are a few ways in which you can put your old makeup to use!

1. Glittery Eyeshadow

If you’ve got expired eyeshadow, you can recycle it to create your own nail polish. All you need is some clear nail polish and some old eyeshadow. Just mix as much powder into the clear polish as needed and paint it on! Mix and match the colors to create custom shades too.

The best part about this is that you’ll probably have so many options as most eyeshadow pallets come with a variety of colors.
