I don't know about you guys, i've went over my budget over the holidays, since there were alot of good sales...so being totally broke, i thought i'd do a look that is very budget friendly... Personally, i've being very into neutral looks recently. I guess with the winter season neutrals are better options than vibrant colours...They requires less products and less efforts in my opinion.
so here is the look that I came up with:
Here is the Close up:
So ya, as you guys can see, it is a very understated, everyday, neutral look...the products that i used to create this look are very cheap, and easily obtainable..it's mainly drug store make up.
Here is what i used:
Make up Palette from Clairs(Click to see Swatch)
E.L.F. Studio Line Blushes in Pink Passion and Gotta Glow
Bath and Body work Lipgloss in Strawberry
Maybelline Mousse blush in Pink Frosting
Sephora Brand Flashy Liner Waterproof in Deep Black
Maybelline illegal Length Mascara (not shown)
All of these products cost less than 10 dollars. And chances are you probably have similar products in your make up drawer... Personally i like this look since again because i've being very into neutral recently. Also if you are a student on a budget, or just started to put on make up, you don't need to spent a fortune on high end products...
Now im not saying the quality of these are just as good as high end make up..they are not..
for example the mousse blush is very sheer, the clairs palettes are very powdery and not very pigmented. But nevertheless, they are still good products. My point is, there are alot of ways that you can make yourself look better more polished that doesn't require tons of money...For example, even though i luv Dior Show Mascara and YSL volume effet faux cils, but spend 30+ on a item that i can't use for no more than 6 months is insane amount of money...where as maybelline mascaras are just as good, for a fraction of the price...To be honest i havent bought any high-end mascara in over like 2years now...Well they are good, i just don't think spending that much money on product that expired in 6 months is worth it.
Anyways i am not preaching you guys, so please don't take it the wrong way, but if there are ways that you can look good for less I think it is a way better options than spending more and not look that much better..Right?
Anyways, I hope guys like this look and my little honest opinion, I hope it helps you in your future purchases, and hopefully saves you some money..
As always with Lotsa Luv and XOXO.J.
