Beauty on a Budget – look good for less, literally!

Social media is the hub that defines what’s currently cool and hot. If you’re not consciously watching how you spend your money, you can easily find yourself broke and in debt. The truth is, you don’t need to break your bank to look and feel stylish or pretty. Being a girl on a budget needs discipline and often requires patience. This means saving a bit of money every month until you are able to purchase that item you’ve been wanting to get your hands on.

I know, and use products that are affordable, but do the trick. You don’t need to pay lots of money to look good. You just need to know where to find affordable quality products.

Below are some beauty products that will leave you looking great and feeling better than the girl who sold their soul in order to look good on Instagram. I got you boo-thang!

  1. Loreal Infallable Foundation

This good girl (get it?) offers you full coverage and doesn’t oxidize. As long as you set the liquid foundation with a powder, it’ll stay on your face and leave you feeling secure and confident all day long. It’s only R185,00 at Dis-Chem.

2. Ralo Cosmetics Compact Powder

I swear by this powder. It absorbs the shine from your face and will give you so much coverage, you will be tempted to do without liquid foundation for the day. I have done this countless of times, on days where I don’t feel like wearing a lot of make up, and it did the trick. The compact powder is only R40,00 at Ralo Cosmetics.

3. L.A Girl Pro conceal High-Definition concealer

This concealer is so convenient and effective. I don’t think I need to say more. It covers dark marks really well and lasts all day. It’s only R59,95 at Dis-Chem. Yes, we love Dischy! 🙂

4. Essence Gel Nail Polish

The Essence gel nail polishes are gorgeous, and with enough coats, they can last up for up to 3 days on your nails. The gel range has a lot of colours, giving you options for different kinds of days and occassions. Each nail polish is only R29,95 at Clicks.

5. Impulse Body Spray

For just R17,95 at Clicks, you can smell good all day.  All of the scents are refreshing and will keep you feeling clean and flirtatious all day. I’m not kidding.

6. Dis-Chem Hand Balm

I have really dry skin and so most hand creams don’t moisturise my hands. However, ever since I picked up this good girl at that Dis-Chem by Park Station, my life has never been the same. It’s very moisturising and keeps my skin hydrated until the next time I wash my hands. It’s only R26,95.

There’s many other products that I’ll feature on the blog in the coming weeks… Let me know if there’s any other effective and affordable beauty product that you know by commenting on below.
