STARTER KIT/ DIVA ON BUDGET

 Hello everyone!
 
These past days were hectic a close person to me got very sick and I couldn't make a post, so I apologize. So today I finally got few minutes to check my mail and write a post for you. 
I know that there are a lot of girls out there that read these beauty blogs or watch YouTube gurus and  love make up, but they are unable to buy any. Maybe your family has economical problems, maybe you are saving up for a house, or maybe you just live in a country like mine where average monthly salary is 250dolars .  But don't get desperate, you should know that no one needs that much make up unless they are a make up artist. An average person needs just 5 things to always look glamorous and in this post I'll tell you what they are.
 
1. First and most important thing is foundation , you don't need a concealer, and powder , and eye primer, and mineral powder, and face primer...you only need foundation. Foundations can be very expensive, but there are a lot of drugstore foundations that can cost little but do you a lot. 
-Foundation can be used like an eye primer-just use a bit of it with your fingers and that's it. 
-Put two layers of foundation on the parts where you would use concealer.
-If you don't have oily skin you won't need setting powder, and if you do have oily skin blot your face with kitchen paper, or whatever paper you have. So your face is good with only foundation.
My choice of drugstore foundation:
2. Mascara is a must have and I really prefer drugstore mascaras instead of  high end once. Mascaras dry quickly and you don't want to spend a fortune on mascara that you'll throw away in a few months. My choice of drugstore mascaras is :
 
3. Eyeshadow is the most difficult thing to pick out , there are so many colors, brands , palettes . So the best thing to do if you are on a  budget is to buy two eye shadows,  one light (champagne) and the other one dark (brown) - it is best to take the dark color the same as your eyebrow color. So you can use it as an eyeshadow and eyebrow powder. And if you have a bit more money you can find some amazing palettes on E-bay with a lot of colors that you can use like lip colors too. My choice is:

 
4. Blush is something that you  have to use. You don't want to look pale with only foundation on. The easiest way is to use eyeshadow or lipstick. And if you want to own a blush find a color that is warm and you can use everyday. My choice is:

5. Lipstick/Lip gloss. If you are a person that likes lipstick then you need to buy a lipstick that is not a very bold color, because you'll want to use it everyday. Same applies for lip gloss - don't buy lip gloss in color, use a clear lip gloss and if you have an eyeshadow palette then dab the color that you like on your clear gloss and you'll have a different colored gloss everyday.


 

Hope you'll find this useful
Thank you
