​Full Face of Makeup for the Low Low

I know I know I know. Buying makeup can get costly real quick. It will have you standing there trying to figure out why it has to cost $60.00. I can admit I have purchased some makeup items here and there that I know others would question if I was thinking.

I’ve learned in my time of purchasing makeup there has to be a balance on the items you purchase. After purchasing and wearing for a bit I started to learn where I could cut corners a.k.a spend less on certain products and still get the same results. Today I want to give you the rundown and hopefully be able to save you a dollar or twenty.

My goal is to give you all the products that are less than $20 each, but of course, the price may vary just a bit depending on your location. I’ll also leave the shades that I use.


~ Rimmel London Stay Matte Face Primer – $5.99

This is perfect for those who have an oily t-zone. You can use this only in your t-zone to cut back on using so much of the product.

~Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer – $13 (mini)

Now before you start saying I’m cheating keep reading. You do not need much and there is plenty of product in this tube. I have tried other primers but I always come back to this one and you should too.

When it comes to lip products I have so many colors I don’t even know where to begin. Hahaha. I suggest clicking here and here for some ideas.


This was somewhat of a challenge because I came across a few things that with just $2 more I could list it buttttt I stuck to the $20 goal and got it done.

I do hope this helped you all see that there are affordable quality makeup items. Everything you purchase does not have to be high end. As I said, in the beginning, there will be things for myself that I won’t budge on and others that I know I can.

Have fun!!!
