I just wanted to start off by saying that yesterday my blog turned 1!! Such an awesome milestone and I want to thank everyone who’s ever read, commented and liked any of my posts! It makes me so happy to be part of this community of bloggers! Looking forward to another awesome year! OK, now on to the post..In March I met up with the beautiful Adrienne from Beyond the Exterior. She’s an amazing fashion blogger with a lots of personal style. We met in the twitter verse and after finding that we lived super close to each other, decided to meet up and collaborate on a post.
We wanted to challenge ourselves to find a spring look that was $50 CAD. My post will focus on a makeup look using only $50 CAD and Adrienne has put together a $50 CAD outfit on her blog, here’s a sneak peek…
I highly suggest following her, links to all her social media will be below ❤
I focused on products you could find in the drug store that were reasonably priced but were good quality (I wasn’t be able to put together a whole face look with items at Sephora!) For me, spring is a chance to wear light and bright makeup because I like looking rejuvenated after the winter and I want it to be an easy makeup routine to whip together before enjoying a day out in the sun.
Items That I Used:
Flower Beauty Foundation: Last year I reviewed this foundation and I’ve actually been using it ever since. It provides light to medium coverage and it feels so nice on my skin. I wore this all summer last year and it had great staying power, even on warmer days. $14.98 (Walmart)Covergirl Eyeshadow: You can create many different looks using this quad. I have 700 notice me nudes and I think the colours are perfect for spring and are awesomely pigmented. For my look, I used the first three lighter colours on the lid and darkest shade as an eyeliner. I also used the lightest colour as a highlight. $10.99 (Shopper’s Drug Mart).
Covergirl Plumpify blastPro Mascara: Covergirl consistently creates great quality mascaras and I really wanted to try out their new Plumpify mascara. This creates long and full lashes that are really flirty. It gives my high-end mascara a run for their money. $12.99 (Shopper’s Drug Mart)
Joe Fresh Blush in Rose: This is a beautiful blush that adds just a touch of colour which is so pretty for spring. I was really impressed with the quality. $6.00 (Shopper’s Drug Mart/ Joe Fresh).
Essence Long Lasting Lipstick. What’s a good budget makeup look without an item from Essence. This lipstick feels so nice and moisturizing on the lips. I went for the colour nude love because I think this keeps the look light and fresh for spring. $3.49 (Shopper’s Drug Mart)
GRAND TOTAL: $48.45
By using the eyeshadow for eyeliner and highlighter I was able to keep my total cost down. This challenge was not as easy as I first thought. Adrienne and I spent quite some time in the mall looking at makeup to determine what would be the best product within our budget. This is definitely the type of look I would go for in the warmer weather because it’s light, easy and super neutral so it would go with any spring outfit.
