$10 Makeup Challenge

Tuesday, October 25, 2016

It's so great to be able to sit down at a Starbucks, sip my Caramel Macchiato, and write this post for you. :)

I saw Estee and Arden do the $10 Makeup Challenge on Youtube here and I thought it would be fun to go through my stash and do this challenge myself! For the most part I was able to find the products I needed that were under $10 a piece in my collection except for two items... which yes, I did have to go out and buy haha

THE $10 MAKEUP CHALLENGE: You can only use makeup that's worth $10 or less.

I'll have all the products listed with their prices that I verified at Walmart, Shoppers Drug Mart, and The FaceShop. All the products that I use can be found at either of these three places. 

I didn't have an eyeliner and bronzer that was less than $10 in my current collection so I took a stroll around Walmart and came across these two. I'm very late to bandwagon for the NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Powder in the shade Sunny, so it's nice to finally have it in my hands to try (although I have high expectations now). This Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner was on sale so I thought to give it a try as well. If you're interested in a review of this eyeliner, let me know in the comments below!

For my base, here's what I used:
- Maybelline Dream Fresh Beauty Balm in Light/Medium $9.96
- Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Sand $7.96
- Rimmel Stay Matte Powder $8.48

For the brows and the eyes:
- The FaceShop Style My Eyebrow Pencil in Black Brown $6
- Covergirl Eye Enhancers Trio in Shimmering Sands $6.47
- Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner in Glossy Black $7.98
- Covergirl Super Sizer Waterproof Mascara $6.97

The finishing touches:
- Nyx Blush in Dusty Rose $9.49
- NYC Smooth Skin Bronzer in Sunny $4.96
- Revlon Balm Stain in Adore $8.96

This is a simple autumnal makeup look with the dark lips and shimmery brown shades on the lids. The blush is muted and neutral so it doesn't go against the bolder lips. 

Have you tried the $10 makeup challenge before? I would love to see what you came up with! Link me to your look in the comments below. :)

Until next time, Des
