A Makeup Look Under $25!

So today’s blog post is going to be about a makeup look for under $25. This was a little hard for me to put together but I finally did it! I know you can find videos on YouTube about $20 makeup challenges, but I thought it wouldn’t hurt if I turned it into a $25 makeup challenge and use better quality products. Also, I didn’t include tax but I thought it would still be fun to do. So lets get started!

In the summer, you don’t want to be wearing heavy makeup, so instead of foundation or BB cream, just use concealer. This is the Essence coverstick concealer and it was $2.49. Just put it on your blemishes, dark circles, and imperfections and you are good to go!

The Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder is the best drugstore pressed powder in my opinion. It costs $4.99, and gets the job done. Plus, it’s huge and it will last a long time. Now that’s affordable!

For blush and bronzer, the Essence Mosaic Compact Powder works great. This is $4.49, and I really like how it’s a two in one. Very convenient and easy!

This next product can also be used as a two in one. It is the Maybelline Exper Wear Eyeshadow in nutmeg. Since it is a nice dark brown color, you can use this as eyeshadow and to fill in your brows! It costs $3.99.

For eyeliner, I chose the Covergirl Perfect Point Blend Pencil. This is super cheap. It is $2.62 and works great for its price.

The Rimmel Extra Super Lash Mascara gives intense lash color and works amazing. This is only $3.47, and works just as great as a high end mascara.

Now I think this is the prettiest lip gloss color I have seen. This is the NYC Liquid Lip Shine in the shade Brighton Beach Peach. This is $1.97. This lip gloss would work great as an everyday lip gloss because the color isn’t too harsh.

The total of this makeup look is $24.02. Hope you enjoyed!

1. What is your go-to product for a sunkissed summer glow?

Well since I’m already naturally tan, I don’t use self tanner. However, in the summer, I love the look of shiny, flawless legs so I have been using the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup and I absolutely love this stuff especially because my legs are not perfect.

How I Want To Decorate My Room!

Hey everyone, so in about a year, I’m going to move into a new house and so I decided to do a blog post on how I want to decorate my room there so lets get started!

Overview- So basically, I want a room that makes me feel very calm when I enter it, so I decided that my bedspread, furniture, and walls are going to be white. Some people might think that is boring but I personally like it. I also want my room to look fresh and not completely washed out with white, so I’m gonna have little pops of color, such as a bright yellow vase, or a teal jewelry box. I think it will make the room very put together and feminine. Lastly, I want a little sparkle, so I want to display my rhinestone jewelry, and make one of those DIY glitter candle jars that people make on YouTube.

Examples- These are pictures of rooms that inspire me and I want my room to look like these rooms!

I like the idea of having a solid white room with pops of color, but I know I'd end up staining everything with acrylic paints or nail polish or coffee...

Just the table
