I haven’t done a makeup post in year (last summer – see that post here) and figured it was about time for one. LONGGGGG overdue!!! Instead of listing all my favorite makeup products, I decided to beat my face (as best as I could) with products purchased mostly at a local beauty supply store. Just so you know, I am veering more and more towards these products. I find that you can pretty much find what you need. These budget products are very comparable to the high-end stuff: They’re hypo-allergenic and there are an array of shades and colors…whether you’re looking for eyeshadows, lipsticks/lip glosses, blush, foundations, eyeliner, everything!  The best thing is budget beauty products are so very wallet-friendly!

The only high-end products I used for this look were Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation and Urban Decay 8-Hour Powder Blush

To achieve this look, I used products from Nicka K, Absolute, Hard Candy, NYX, Ruby Kisses, Maybelline, and Beautique.

I’m not the greatest when it comes to makeup. I definitely wish I had the skills of a professional makeup artist because I LOVE makeup and am always buying products. It is very much so a beautiful skill that I would love to learn. I love seeing all the pins posted on Pinterest of all the achievable looks that I CAN’T achieve. All I can do is do what little I can do! The one thing I REALLY wish I could master is the cat-eye. I can just never really seem to get it right.

Also, I will be posting a makeup post monthly. I figure I could use the practice as well as showing you different looks. Is this something you would be interested in? Let me know!

If you’re into makeup, are you more of a high-end user, budget-friendly buy, or a wonderful mixture of the two? And if you’re not really that into makeup, I think purchasing products from your local beauty supply store is a great place to start without breaking the bank, right?

Well, thank you so much for stopping by. I love having you here. And as always, have a beautiful day.

    I love how the mixture looks so swell on you! I have always been fairly budget oriented with all things make-up included. My adult daughter was trying to do high end at home, although, now she has decided she likes having budget friendly to use rather than than high end that she can one or two but not all.

    Oh I love all the fun colors you picked! Drugstore makeup can be a great way to achieve a nice look without breaking the bank!

    You did well. I love the shades on your eyes. I am a purple person.

    You would never know that this make up look is on a budget! You look a million dollars x

    I think I do a mix of the two, but mostly budget friendly. I just have a hard time spending a lot of money on things for myself.
