Beauty on a Budget

by

We all love to go the MAC counter and get lots of fun new make-up, but what if you need a pick me up, or you want to try a new trend and you don’t want to spend very much money??  Hello, drugstore!! (Target being my favorite) I am going to stick to mascara, nailpolish, eyeshadow, and lipgloss for these amazing drugstore finds.  I am also going to let you in on what make-up trends will be hot this Fall and stuff your man will love.
Mascara (need I say more) what would we all do without it?  Cover Girl Lashblast Mascara is amazing and I am hooked.  I won’t even look at another mascara and for $6.54 at your nearest Target or Walmart you can have the most amazing voluptuous lashes.  Try them with my smokey eye look, found right here.

NYC nailpolish lets me try every new trend from black to neon yellow all for $1.  Hot trends this Fall are Greige (grey and beige), don’t you love the Fashion lingo?  Also matte purple and matte green are definitely in!!  Shine is out, ladies.

Eyeshadow is always so fun when you are trying new trends and Maybelline has a great one for $2.94.
Big colors this fall are gold, bronze, and burgundy metallics. Getting your metallic on is a great way to make your eyes pop. I say go gold for brown eyes, burgundy for green (love this), and bronze if you are a blue eyed babe.

Last, but not least, Lip Gloss! e.l.f.makes products for $1.  We are talking eveything you want for a dollar!  They also make some amazing lip glosses that come in a kit of five for $5.00.  So you can have all the lip smackin gloss you need.  One of the colors is burgundy (They have three different shades of it.  They call it by different names.) which is also really big for lips this Fall.  I know we all shy away from darker colors but when its comes in a gloss it goes on so sheer that you really just get a fun pop of trendy color.  I am going to go all out with this color this Fall.  One rule though, if you use it on your eyes don’t use it on your lips.  We don’t want to be a full blown vampire, we just want to be Bella so our man will want a BITE!

    I love the beauty on a budget post. I have the CoverGirl LashBlast mascara and it is one of my favorites. I have never tried the NYC nail polish but a $1 each…why not give it a shot. I love the blog also.

  2. Kari says:

    Wow, sounds like I need to give the LashBlast a try. I'm with Chanel, I'm definitely going to try out that nail polish. $1, really? Fantastic! That'll fit in my budget (what's left of it after I hit that MAC counter anyway, lol). Great post Bridget!

    Thanks for sharing these great tips! Beauty on a budget…love it!

    I LOVE Elf products. The best part is if you try it and don't like it you don't feel guilty tossing it. For a buck you can try it all.

  6. Baking Kate says:

    Be careful with ELF! I went ELF crazy and ended up with thousands of calls hourly. They sell your information and it is horrible to unsubscribe!

  7. CorieAnn Scarbrough says:

    I went to COSTCO today and they have a three pack of the Covergirl mascara for $14!
