ooh ahh! Beauty on a Budget

Hey guys!

I don't know if you're like me at all.... but I'm a LITTLE addicted to makeup and beauty products. If I had my way (and the money) this blog would be nothing but telling you about awesome new make up products, with a hint of electronics and nerdy stuff too. haha

But since I'm on a tight budget, I'll try to help you out! And let you know a few things I've found that work well for me, and maybe they will work for you too!!!

#1 Wet and Wild Intuitive Blend -- $3

Now I bought this foundation, because I can never find a foundation that covers yet doesn't leave me feeling greasy.. or too dry. I have oily skin, so i do NOT need any help with oils and things that soak up too fast. My skin is like a sponge, it's quite annoying. Now this foundation is good.... IF you have oily or dry skin. It goes on and smells and feels like a moisturizer. It has these little beads that pop and match your skin tone. Now I got the light shade.. and it was a tiniest bit too light.  My main complaint on it, is that it doesn't really cover.  If you are just having a day when you want a little smoothing, it's great for that. But not for blemishes! However Wet and Wild makes a concealer stick that actually works well!!!! I believe i bought the concealer for $1 !!!!

#2 L.A. Colors eyeshadow palettes -- $1 

Oh how I adore the colors that LA Colors uses. I have like 5 of these palettes I believe!! They are So much fun to play with!!!! I especially love the bright pink and purples.  Now like I said, these are a $1 at Dollar general where I buy them.  And like I said.. oily skin, soaks up everything. BUT if you use an eyeshadow primer or a liquid cream colored shadow underneath, voila! Colors all day!!!!! :) You just have to play with what you got. I've got a great liquid eyeshadow next...

#3 Hard Candy Eye Def-- $6

Ahhh the love of my life!! happened to buy this at wal-mart once... and I don't know how I lived without it!!! In this exact shade too!!!! Called "What Sandy Says Goes" hahahahah what a silly name!!! But I'm telling you, it's got this little glitter bits in it.. sparkles. Makes your eyes pop open! I get compliments anytime I wear it. Seriously. I can't imagine it looks bad on anyone!! And they have tons of shades... just picked up a few more this weekend :) 
Now like I said, if you get those cheap LA Colors eyeshadows for fun colors.. put this on first, let it dry.. and then put all the color you want on it! It will stay ALL day. I promise!!!! No streaks. No smudging. I love it. I could go on.... but  I won't!!!!

#4 Cover Girl Professional Super Thick Lash-- $4-8 

Now I was at a store in town... happened to stumble upon this on sale for $4... and I think you can never have enough mascara.. so grabbed it up. And I'm GLAD I did. I'm usually the kind of girl that uses a volumizing mascara and a lengthening mascara too . I've never had a lot of luck on ones that are supposed to do both.  Like normally I've been using Lash Stiletto, which is GREAT for length. But I added this one and it really helps plump up those babies!!! I'm quite enjoying it!! I love a random find like that! 

Well there we go. Some beauty on a budget!!!! I hope those help you out for today!!!!! but Seriously.... go get some of that Hard Candy.... just do it! I should be their spokesperson.. HIRE ME!!! HIReEEE MEEEEE!!! hahahhhahaahah!!!

peace guys!

picture post!!! :)

So i'm just sitting here posting some of my old pics to pinterest when i was like.. hmm i haven't blogged in a few days...... so i'll share some here too!!!!!

I've been a little pouty about my camera lately. It broke about 2 years ago when i was taking a picture o a lightning bug on my car. The shutter won't open, and i'm sure it's fixable... but I just haven't had the finances to fix it. It was a Canon DSLR Rebel Xti... I miss it. I still have it... but i just miss using it all the time.

As you can see why I miss it so much now... Oh it was the perfect camera. Worth every cent!!!
