Think you have to break the bank on make-up and skincare in order to look gorgeous? Think again! From DIY beauty treatments to multi-tasking products, we’ve got you covered with our top money saving beauty tips.
Do-It-Yourself Spa Treatments
Get the most out of your grocery shopping by making your own facial masks, body scrubs and even conditioning hair treatments. Not only will have the benefit of knowing that what you’re putting on your skin is all natural goodness, but you’ll smell good enough to eat!
Why shouldn’t your products work as hard as you do? Multi-tasking make-up and beauty products are the best way to save time, bathroom cabinet space and most importantly money! Our number one pick is coconut oil, which is a must have in any beauty cabinet! This natural gem can be used as a nourishing hair treatment, body lotion and even a make-up remover. Talk about genius! When it comes to your make-up, we love buys like Ilia’s Multistick, $45 which can be used as a lip stain or to give cheeks a natural looking flush.
Don’t forget pharmacy brands
Luxe beauty brands aren’t the only ones that can deliver results. So if you’re trying to save cash why not give budget brands a try? Yes To and Sukin Organics are both great natural skincare companies that are wallet friendly.

Watch YouTube hair and make-up tutorials
You can save a great deal of money (not to mention time and hassle) by doing your own hair and make-up for special events. Chloe Morello is our go-to beauty YouTube superstar here at Sporteluxe. We love her fun, easy-to-follow make-up and hair tutorial videos…and so will you!
Ask for an apprentice hairdresser
Who doesn’t love walking into a luxe hair salon for a blow dry or trim? However, it usually also means walking away with a large dent in your bank account! Next time, ask for an apprentice to tend to your tresses. Most top salons offer a discounted rate for the services of apprentice or junior hairdressers and this way you won’t have to risk trying a dodgy salon to save money.
