Affordable Beauty

Let’s face it, having a baby is EXPENSIVE. Diapers, food, clothes; those necessities alone put a big dent in the bank account every month. We said we were prepared to spend money on these things, but never really knew how expensive it would actually be. I have heard people say that once your baby grows out of diapers, it’s as if you’re giving yourself a pay raise. Isn’t that true. Now when it comes to spending money on myself, I have a really hard time doing so. Every time I run out of things that I need, like makeup, deodorant, shampoo & conditioner, it seems like I always run out of it all at once! Makeup used to be pretty affordable, but now when you want something that is high quality, it seems like you have to spend an arm and a leg to get it. Well, that doesn’t always have to be the case! I want to share with you ladies some makeup products that won’t break the bank, and that work well too!

NYX That’s the Point Eyeliner

Love love love this!! I have gone through so many different brands of eyeliner, and this one is by far the easiest to apply. The price on this eyeliner is $10, which is amazing considering how well it works. This is smudge proof and stays on all day long. 


e.l.f. brand never ceases to amaze me. They always have such affordable beauty products and some work really well for the price. I use the medium shade in this concealer and it looks great with my skin tone. This concealer is only $6 and actually lasts a good amount of time.

Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater

This facial spray always makes my skin feel so refreshed. I like to use this at night after I remove my makeup, and in the morning when I wake up. This smells amazing too. You can find this at Ulta for only $7.

COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Glow Highlighter

I love this highlighter because it is affordable and works really well. It almost has a pearl undertone to it. This shimmers so nicely, and you only need to apply a small amount for it to show up. This is really easy to apply and blend. You can find this at Ulta for $10.99

e.l.f. Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer

e.l.f. is one of the most affordable makeup brands out there, so I wasn’t sure how well the primer would work, but I was pleasantly surprised! I really like this primer a lot, and I use it daily. My eye shadow always stays on all day long and lasts way longer when I use this. The best part? This primer is only $2!

Burt’s Bees Pomegranate Lip Balm

Burt’s bees is my favorite type of lip balm. I love the way it feels when I am applying it to my lips. I can put this on before bed, and when I wake up my lips feel super soft. I use this type of lip balm frequently. This is only $3.59 at Ulta.

COVERGIRL Cheekers Bronzer

This bronzer is awesome because you only need to apply a little bit for it to really POP! I love how affordable and long lasting it is. The brush that it comes with isn’t the greatest though, so I would recommend applying this with a better quality makeup brush. You can find this at Ulta for $4.99

Dove Beauty Cream

I have very dry skin, and this moisturizer really helps hydrate my face! This cream has a very nice smell to it as well. I was SHOCKED when I found this at the Dollar Tree. Yes, that’s right, the Dollar Tree!! This cream lasts me 3+ months, and I get it for just $1.
