Just because you’re on a tight budget, it doesn’t mean that your makeup look has to look it. I’m a firm believer that beauty doesn’t need to be costly. Here is a $25 beauty look I have created to get the most for your hard-earned buck.
 


On my face, I’m using one of my favorite foundations: Maybelline’s Fit Me. I love this foundation because of it’s wide color range. I have a really yellow undertone, and this foundation suits my skin more than most high-end foundations. I used the Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil to thicken and shape my brows. I prefer eyeliners for my brows instead of brow pencils because the color lasts twice as long.
 

For my eyes, I have kept it very simple and only applied false lashes to my top lashes. The ones that I’m wearing are from an online boutique called Born Pretty Store and are very natural. The most affordable lipsticks with the best color payoff are the Wet and Wild MegaLast Mega Last Lip Color. The lipstick glides on so easily and doesn’t cake or feather. With such a bold lip, I skipped blush and straight to contouring to finish up the entire look. I applied the N.Y.C. Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder diagonally under my cheekbones and on the sides of my nose from the bridge straight down.
 
And there you have it! No high-end products needed to create this fun and playful look that’s so perfect for spring. See the original post on Fashion Magazine here.
