I'm not being frugal, I'm just being practical. Foundations are expensive and you want to make the most of it. There are four other ways to use your liquid foundation other than a makeup base.

1. Tinted Moisturizer

When you don't need a full coverage, mix your foundation with moisturizer to get an instant tinted moisturizer. Use a 1:2 ratio (1 dollop liquid foundation : 2 dollop moisturizer). Added bonus if you have an SPF moisturizer.

2. Concealer

The liquid foundation accumulated at the rim of the bottle are great as concealers! Don't waste it and wipe it away! Use it as a concealer to cover up imperfections.

3. Highlighter

Mix a little loose mineral eyeshadow with foundation and you got yourself a free liquid highlighter!

4. Primer

I love Urban Decay eyeshadow primer but that little bottle is expensive. You can use a liquid foundation and set translucent powder directly on the lids for the same effect. For a double duty, you can also use it on your lips to make your lip color pop!
After reading this I don't want to purchase another urban decay eyeshadow primer.
Great! Thx for the primer tip!
These are all great ideas especially the tinted moisturizer. I've been using Chanel liquid foundation and I feel like a waste whenever I have extra on my hand. I should start mixing it with my sunscreen lotion!
Here's another liquid foundation trick. Mix it with a little translucent powder apply under brow bone to definte your eyebrows!
Neat! I'm totally stealing the eye primer trick!
