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!

New Drugstore Products Makeup Tutorial!

Hey everyone, so it’s been forever since I’ve done a makeup tutorial, so I thought I would do one today using new drugstore products, so it gives you a chance to discover some affordable new makeup that is out in drugstores right now. So lets get started!

CoverGirl Ready, Set Gorgeous Liquid Makeup Foundation Soft Honey 220

So starting off with foundation, this Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation works wonders. It’s oil free, doesn’t clog pores, and blendable. And the packaging is adorable. (It’s on sale for $6.99 on walgreens.com right now)

L'Oreal Paris Visible Lift Blur Concealer Light 302

For concealer, I think this L’oreal Paris Visible Lift Blur Concealer is so great, especially for older women, because it has so many anti-aging benefits. This concealer gives, you a nice, smooth finish! The only downside to this is the price because it’s around $13 which is expensive for a drugstore concealer, but I think it’s because the packaging is pretty large too.

L'Oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Powder

Since there are no new pressed powders out in drugstores right now, I decided to go with the trusty old L’oreal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Powder. I think this powder is so cool because it has pearl pigments that give your skin this beautiful, natural-looking glow. Who doesn’t want that?

e.l.f. Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow Toast

In the summer, I think the best choice for eyeshadow is a cream shadow, or gel eyeshadow, like this Elf Long-Lasting Lustrous Eyeshadow in the shade Toast. Just apply it to your lids, and you are good to go!

Revlon Brow Pencil & Gel

I absolutely love 2-in-1 makeup products, so for brows, I decided to go with this Revlon Brow Pencil and Gel. Basically, this is a double sided pen where one side, we have a brow pencil, and the other side has a gel to set everything in place.

Maybelline® Eye Studio® Master Kajal Eyeliner - Onyx Rush 0.053 oz

For eyeliner, I decided to go with the Maybelline Eye Studio Master Kajal Eyeliner. This is very easy to apply, and it comes in 4 different colors.

Maybelline Volum' Express® Pumped Up! Colossal™ Mascara

Can we just talk about how cute the packaging of this mascara is? This is the Maybelline Volum’ Express Pumped Up! Mascara. In my opinion, this isn’t the best mascara from Maybelline’s Volum’ Express line, but it certainly isn’t the worst. This mascara is great on making your lashes look thick and healthy.

Maybelline Face Studio™ Master Glaze™ Glisten Blush Stick

Blush sticks are a life saver. This Maybelline Face Studio Master Glaze Glisten Blush Stick is so easy to apply, and I’m in love with it. If you love the dewy cheeks trend, you should use this blush stick! It comes in many different gorgeous shades.

L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Balm Pop Lipstick

Lastly for lips, the L’oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm Pop Lipsticks are moisturizing and leave your lips feeling so soft, it’s seriously so amazing. I personally don’t like this shade, but it comes in a few other shades too.

I hope you enjoyed!

5 Cute Summer Braided Hairstyles!

Hey everyone, so today I’m gonna show you 5 braided hairstyles to wear in the summer, so lets get started!

1. Braided Bun- Put your hair into a high ponytail, then simply braid it. Wrap it into a bun shape and secure with bobby pins or an elastic.

2. Milkmaid Braid- Separate your hair into two equal sections, leaving your bangs out. If you do not have bangs, leave some of your front hair out. Braid the two sections normally. Bring the braids over your head across to the other side and secure with bobby pins. You can curl the hair you left out if you wish to.

3. Waterfall Braid- Start braiding at one side of your head and drop a piece each time and pick up a new one.

4. Upside Down Braid Bun- French braid your hair from the bottom up and then create a bun on the top of your head!

5. Fishtail Braid- You already know how to do this….. I hope.

I hope you guys enjoyed!

10 Beauty Tips You Probably Didn’t Know About Before!

Hey everyone, so today I want to share 10 beauty tips I recently learned so lets get started!

1. Vaseline + Toothbrush = Best Lip Exfoliator Ever 

2. Eye Cream makes your cuticles stronger.

3. Allow about two fingers from your nose to where blush starts.

4. Apply coconut oil to knees and elbows to reduce darkness.

5. Wear shimmery eye shadow to compliment a bold, matte lip.

6. You can use eye shadow that is closest to your hair color as dry shampoo!

7. Instead of using a gel face cleanser, use a cream or milk cleanser to wash your face. It’s less drying.

8. Never pump your mascara pump. It will cause it to dry out.

9. To prevent liquid liner from drying out, store it upside down.

10. Not sure if a foundation is your shade? Rub it on the inside of your wrist. Does it blend? If yes, it’s your shade.

 

I hope you learned something!
