MAKE A DIFFERENCE: BEAUTY IS IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
Did you know that the average women spends over $200,000 on make-up in their lifetime? Yes, all those tubes of mascara and pressed powders add up to a lot throughout our lives. Whether you like a neutral look or go heavy with the smokey eye, we have to admit that make-up is a big part of our daily lives. From the meeting room to the dance floor, make-up can help us feel good on the outside so that we can bring out the beauty from the inside.
And if you are like us, sometimes you end up purchasing a foundation in a shade that you have no business wearing on your face. It's a bummer when a product doesn't work out and you end up wasting your money. Most stores don't allow the return of opened and used products. And if you're environmentally conscious like us, the last thing you want to do is throw away a product that is perfectly fine. But we came across a great way to donate your make-up to a great cause and keep it out of the landfill!
Project Beauty Share is a non-profit that provides women in need with beauty and feminine products. They distribute products to other non-profit that serve women that are overcoming abuse, addiction, homeless, and poverty. The organization can take everything from clean make-up brushes to tampons. Some items have to be new/unused while other items such as eye shadows and bronzers are fine to be donated if they are lightly used. Be sure to check out their donation requirements here. Items can be packaged and shipped to the address listed on the website. And if you are a bounteous babe in Washington or Idaho, there are several drop-off sites you can use instead.
So take a chance to raid your beauty drawer and collect all those make-up samples from your monthly subscription box that you never got around to using. And while you are at it, pick-up an extra box of feminine products on your next trip to target. Donating to Project Beauty Share is an easy way to give back to women and provide a use for products that might have otherwise ended-up in the trash. Make a difference and be bounteous!
