eye shadow

Don’t you just hate it when you buy an assorted set of eye shadow but the truth of the matter is only two or three colours have your heart? Nine times out of ten, the rest of the eye shadow ends up in the thrash bag. Well today all that is about to change, we are going to show you three simple ways in which you can recycle your unused or old eye shadow into a glam beauty product.

Hair Color

Eye shadow can be revamped into a nice shade of hair colour or used as a highlighter. The best part about this is, it does not damage your hair unlike other hair dyes. Beauty vloggers @heygorjess and @tootsietime show us how it can be done







Nail Polish

That old eye shadow sitting in your makeup bag can be used as a fab nail polish. All you need is a plain coloured nail polish. Crush the old eye shadow into powdered form, mix it up with the plain nail polish and voila! A new shade of nail polish is added to your collection.

For Contouring

This one is for all the makeup junkies that love to contour. Some health studies show that eye shadow should not be used for the eye area when it loses its pigmentation. Instead of throwing it out why not use it for contouring your face just like @VickyGlam
