Guest Post: Glam Everyday FOTD for Less


Check out the lovely Dre from So She Writes who will show you how to create an everyday beauty routine, yet still look glam when you’re on a budget!

Do you want to create a full-face everyday look without breaking the bank? Well, you can still look like a diva for less.  I mean, full-coverage makeup, primer, finishing powder, the works!  Check out the run-down below to see how I did it.
Face:
e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer= $6 ($3 with coupon)
Avon Smooth Minerals Liquid Foundation in Nutmeg= $3
Avon Healthy Makeup Liquid Concealer in Med. Deep= $2
e.l.f. Studio Powder Blush in Tickled Pink (highlighting)= $ 3 (1.50 with coupon)
e.l.f. HD Powder= $6 ($3 with coupon)

Eyes:
Ruby Kisses Eyeshadow Primer= $2
e.l.f. Studio Eyeshadow(s) in Celebrity & Glamorous= $3 each ($1.50 each with coupon)
e.l.f. Studio Creme Eyeliner in Black= $3 ($1.50 with coupon)
Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeliner in Black= $1
Avon SuperExtend Eye Accents  Mascara= $2.25

Lips:
Avon Ultra Rich Color Lipstick in Berry Berry Nice= $4
Note:  all e.l.f. items can be purchased at your local Target or online at www.eyeslipsface.com
If purchasing online, be sure to google e.l.f. coupons as there are many!
Also, all Avon items can be purchased from your local Avon Representative.
Ruby Kisses products can be found at your local beauty supply store.

Damage= $26.25

My most expensive item used was my $4 Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Berry Berry Nice.  It is a very pigmented, moisturizing, and long-lasting lipstick that compares with some of my higher end lipsticks.
Frugal Tip:  A cheaper alternative to primer is Milk of Magnesia.  It keeps makeup put all day & can be  purchased from the dollar store for $1

What budget-friendly staple items do you use in your beauty regimen?
