Affordable, Quality Cosmetics
Make up is a hobby of mine and I've been doing it "professionally" for about two years now. By that I mean, every girl at my college and surrounding areas with a few weddings thrown in. I use Bare Escentuals and find Ebay to be a perfect place for it ($12 mascara for $1.99). But if even that is out of your price range this is a short list of good yet affordable cosmetics. If anybody knows anymore, feel free to add to this! =) Milani - $2-$12 You would be surprised at how good this brand is. I mixed this brand with a few MAC brands for a wedding and it looked the same. A lot of MAC users use this too. N Y X Cosmetics - $.50-$7.00 Same as the above. I haven't had much luck with this brand but I know a lot of other girls who have so I'm passing it along. E.L.F (Eyes, Lips & Face) - $1.00! I hear it is good stuff. All their products are a dollar and if you order online you get a free item. As with everything, you can probably find these on Ebay even cheaper. If my skin weren't so super sensitive I would probably wear Milani only. But Milani glossy tubes are great. Hope this helps somebody! Edit: I forgot to add these little tips... * Vaseline makes the greatest lip balm/gloss. I've had Mary Kay's satin lips and it's the same thing! *Rubbing alcohol makes a great toner. Now, this is for me and a few others!!! I know this isn't going to work for everybody but it's kept my skin clear since I was 12. If it's too strong try witch hazel. *Oatmeal soap is a great way to keep your complexion toned and skin clear! I find it here at Walgreens for $.98. It's all natural too.
