I don’t know about you but January usually means I’m feeling a bit on the broke side. Queue one glum face, dreaming of being able to go on a shopping trip again in what seems like the very distant future.
How? Well, I turned to budget brand MUA and also used my products in not quite their traditional manner as a multi tasking products.
MUA Matte Foundation – £2 (mine is old packaging/formula)
MUA Lipstick in shade Nectar – £1
This doubled up as lipstick and blusher. I just blended out a couple of dots of it on each cheek for a natural peachy flush.
MUA Brow Pencil in shade Brunette – £1 As a brow pencil this is great! I didn’t stop there though and used it to tight line and blended in my crease to define my eyes. Yup there was no room in the budget for eyeshadow. A girl can make do though!
Lastly I finished up with a spot of MUA’s £1 mascara.
What do you think of my little budgeting experiment? Could you get by on £5 worth of make-up?
