Spring Beauty Steals for Under $10
One of my goals this year is to flex my drugstore beauty chops. Sometimes out of sheer habit I forget that there are amazing beauty deals out there and I only have to pop into Sally Beauty to be reminded! In my first foray into spring makeup I nabbed all seven of these goodies for less than $50. Do you know what that would buy you at the department store beauty counter?! This particular look is one of my favorites: an all-American combination of navy eye (trust me), a peachy-nude lip, lightly bronzed skin, and coral nails. It’s nautical with a glamorous finish. Just add yacht or backyard cocktail party! While you’re getting your spring on, pop some popcorn + tune into Younger, a witty new show on TV Land that just goes to show we are ALL young at heart. Catch it Tuesdays at 10/9 Central!
OPI Nail Lacquer in Collins Ave. ($9.49) is the perfect poppy pink-red that I plan to wear on both my fingers and toes.
For a fresh twist on the smoky eye for spring and summer, swap out gray for navy. It’s more playful and really makes eyes pop. Smudge the top lash line with Smokin’ Eye Shadow Crayon in Marine ($4.89). This creamy pencil adds emphasis and really makes eyes pop. Then, apply Real Colors Matte Shadow in Midnight Express ($4.49) over your whole lid, taking it just above the crease.
No smoky eye would be complete without a nude lip! Super Juices lip gloss in Champagne ($4.99) is beautiful on its own and adds a pop of playful shine to your favorite nude lipstick for night. If you’re feeling really daring, try Femme Couture Shiny Crayon in Flushed ($5.99). This juicy hue can be dabbed on like a tinted balm or layered for when you want a more dramatic punch. Don’t you just love a good crayon?
It’s never too soon to start dusting on the bronzer! A little glow will get you in the spring spirit. I like Real Colors Bask Illuminating Bronzer ($9.99) because it’s so hard to find a non-orangey shade for paler skin. This one is golden and the perfect transitional shade. Buff it into cheeks, across forehead, nose and chin using Face Secrets Kabuki Brush ($7.99), which makes for a flawless, even finish.
