And use loose setting powder to prevent your lines from creasing your foundation.
I furrow my brow a lot, which makes lines in my foundation. I have found that heavily baking my forehead really helps. After applying foundation and concealer, I dip a Beautyblender into some loose setting powder and stamp it on the areas that crease. I let it sit while I do my brows and eyes, and then I use a big powder brush to wipe the excess off of my face.

Buy travel-size mascara instead of full-size. For some brands, you’ll actually save money in the long haul.
I get the benefits of a high-end mascara without having to worry about throwing out excess. It's usually enough for three months, which is when you should toss mascara, anyway.
