Who said looking good had to be expensive? I mean most of us are simply real life women. We have lives that go on beyond the make up aisle. We have other bills, people, and responsibilities to take care of. For me, I have three boys. That’s enough said! So while I would love (and sometimes do) splurge on high-end and department store make up, it’s not my everyday routine. And that’s fine! I do beauty on a budget and I do it well! Most of my daily products and staple items can be found in your local drugstore, for under $10! Since I know I’m not alone in this boat, I’ve compiled a few drugstore items that fit any budget and beauty queen. Enjoy!
Pucker Up: Milani Color Statement Lipstick is amazing. They have an extensive line of colors from Pinks to Browns and everything in between. Their Teddy Bare is a great nude lipstick. Best Red is a gorgeous red for any skin tone. And Black Cherry is a very interesting deep purple for those of us who like dark lips! Try them and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
Flawless Skin: L’Oreal True Match is one of the first foundations I’ve ever purchased and still my first true love. It’s always been a challenge for me to find a foundation to match my dark skin tone but this line has done a great job in creating an array of shades for any complexion.
It’s All in the Eyes: If you don’t appreciate Wet n Wild you are seriously seriously, missing out on life. Their Color Icon eyeshadow trio palettes are super pigmented and super cheap. Under $5 for three colors. Wet N Wild is available at most drugstores as well as Target and Wal-Mart so there’s no reason you can’t find and take advantage of this awesome brand.
Don’t Make Me Blush: NYX has some of the best blushes. Very pigmented and a nice range of colors, this line carries some of my favorites. Like Cinnamon which I wear in the summer. It’s a beautiful orange color that works very well for a sun-kissed look. NYX is a bit difficult to find in my area but you can definitely find it at your local beauty stores.
With just a few reasonably priced items you can create virtually any look from your simple everyday make up to a glamorous night out. And you don’t have to break the bank!
Peace, Love & Blessings,
