How do I get a good make-up system on a budget ? Guide to getting bang for your buck on a 100 Dollar budget.
I've never been a Women who can spend 10 dollars on a dress and 100 dollars on shoes. I'm all about balance and sometimes balance is about money in the right places. When I touch on budgeting I must say that buying high end names doesn't make a product anymore effective then a product you pick up in a drug store. I think spending more on the right items are more effective. I put together a chart that can be a guideline when shopping on a budget I also have put together links and suggestive purchases when trying to stick in this budget. The good thing about a budget is when you spend less in one area you are able to spend more another area without exceeding your overall budget
Eyeliner & Mascara:
there is so much flexibility in this category. Believe it or not I've purchased some really high end Mascara's that would cause me to tear all day because of the fragrance. Then I would grab a pharmacy brand and my lashes would look amazing all day.

I really hate to say this I am not loyal to my lipstick. The market is super competitive sometimes I can take a trip to my neighborhood beauty supply store here in jersey and stumble across the most magical lipstick for 5 dollars. (inserts shocked face emoji here)

Primer & Foundation:
Primer & Foundation collectively take up more then half of your budget. I am a firm believer that this an area you don't want to cut cost to much. Get a good primer to protect your skin because you can end up paying for this in the long run. Even if you decide to get a decent primer and foundation that's less pricy go for a good primer.
