Looking flawless doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune on designer makeup. In fact, all you need is a $20 bill. Bonus: Spending less money on makeup means more cash for your 401k. Or those white ankle boots you’ve been eyeing. It’s your call.
What to Get:
Foundation: NYX Stay Matte Not Flat Foundation ($7.50)
Cheek and lip: Wet & Wild Lasting Lip ($2)
Eyeshadow: Cover Girl Eye Enhancers 3-Kit Shadow ($4.50)
Mascara: Elf Volumizing Mascara ($3)
Step 1: Start with the foundation and apply as you normally would.
Step 2: Use a brush to dot some of the lipstick on your cheeks and blend for a rosy glow.
Step 3: Now for your eyes. Start with the middle shade and apply all over your lid. Use the darkest shade just above your upper lash line and the lightest to accent your brow bones. Don’t forget to lengthen those lashes with with some mascara.
Step 4: Grab your lipstick one last time and give your pout a once over.
