How To Create A Natural Full Face For Cheap
Personally, I would rather splurge on quality cosmetics knowing I will get the most beautiful results. However, I don’t always have the funds to fuel my addiction, much like many women. In today’s crazy world, it’s more important to focus on surviving. Fortunately, there are inexpensive cosmetics on the shelves that still perform. I’m sure you’ve heard about e.l.f. Cosmetics. They are a cruelty-free makeup brand and very affordable. I’ve come up with a list of 7 amazing beauty products that you don’t have to tap into your savings in order to achieve a complete, natural look. It’s possible and easy to create a natural full face look for under $25!
Foundation: e.l.f. Flawless Finish Foundation $6
This foundation helps to even out skin tones for a smooth complexion. The non-greasy and lightweight formula blends seamlessly on the skin and won’t cause breakouts and clogged pores. Although the liquid is difficult to layer, it already gives you a nice medium to full coverage. It’s great for covering fine lines and wrinkles without creasing or looking cakey. The formula also contains SPF 15 for mild protection from sun exposure.
Concealer: e.l.f. HD Concealer $3
This high definition concealer contains soothing properties like Green Tea and c-vitamins, which helps to improve skin tone and texture. The formula is thick enough to hide imperfections such as blemishes and hyperpigmentation, but light enough to blend naturally in the skin.
Mascara: e.l.f. Eye Enhancing Mascara $3
The wand is sturdy and is easy to separate each individual lash for a defined and natural look. The formula enhances thick and full eyelashes without clumping together. Although it’s not waterproof, it doesn’t smudge. A fair warning to future customers: There isn’t a lot of product in the tube and it starts to dry up after a few weeks. But considering the low price tag, you get what you pay for.
Brows: e.l.f. Eyebrow Kit $3
I personally have rebought this eyebrow kit. The compact and the brush it comes with are worth the $3 itself, but the powder and wax are surprisingly high quality too. I have super fair eyelashes, so this product helps me to achieve a natural thick eyebrow look. I can layer it to create a dramatic and bold look or tone it down for during the day. For a tip, I mix the wax and powder together and apply it with the brush.
Eyeshadow: e.l.f. Baked Eyeshadow Trio $4
Peach Please is the best trio color for ladies with blue eyes. All 3 colors blend well without looking dirty. The pigmentation is high quality. However, I prefer matte but they only have shimmery shades. Since these eyeshadows are baked, you can wet your brush for best results.
Lipstick: e.l.f. Matte Lip Color $3
I love these lip colors in the shades Praline and Tea Rose. The affordable price allows you try out all their colors! Even though they are matte textured, the color slides on smooth and isn’t drying to the lips. There’s even a sharpener that comes attached to the stick.
Lip Liner: e.l.f. Lip Liner & Blending Brush $3
This pencil really does amp up your lips. The defined tip gives you an enhanced and full pout. The color stays on the lips a long time for a $3 lip liner. This liner also comes with a brush attached to the end to blend the color through your lips. You could even smear it out and wear the liner as a lip stain.
I hope this list of inexpensive products help you achieve a soft and natural full face. Let me know in the comments if you agree or disagree. I’d love to know what makeup products you use for a natural or “no makeup” look. For high-end product reviews click here. xo!
