Cheap cosmetics are not necessarily bad for you, if you pay attention to the list of ingredients. Even though they are not of a renowned brand, they may transform you in the person you want to be in no time. Thus, if your budget is limited for now or if you don’t feel like spending a lot of money on cosmetics than know that you do not have to give up being beautiful! This is a list of cheap cosmetics that any woman needs !
1. Sun Cream
Today, we know that sun cream is a MUST, especially in summer months, but not only: UV rays are present all year long, so you should protect yourself against them by always applying it on your exposed skin. Not only will sun cream protect you from cancer (which is already more than enough!) but it will also provide keep wrinkles away!
The deodorant is the basic need of any man and woman, if one does not want to be pushed at the margin of the society! I know that there are some alternatives to deodorant but honestly none is truly efficient! At least, none that I have found so far…Careful though, some deodorants may contain really nasty ingredients, so as in any case, chose wisely, or even better…do it yourself. Even though i never tried home-made deodorants (photo), I head they are quite efficient!
3. Lip Balm
A lip balm is another essential in a woman’s purse that does not require much money and it is very useful, especially in those cold winter days or in the middle of the summer when your lips suffer the most. Even a good lip balm is quite affordable so you have no excuse not to have one! Men may benefit from an universal lip-balm also , therefore don’t be ashamed to use it, your lips will thank you!
4. Face cream
Any list of essential cheap cosmetics should include a good face cream. Its main purpose is to hydrate the skin so, any cream that contains –or at least claims to contain- natural ingredients and it is especially made to serve this purpose should be good enough for anyone who has a limited budged, or does not care much about such trivial things as cosmetics.
Oh, the mascara! Most women spend lots on money on it, hoping that it will make their eye lashes as beautiful as those of the women they see on TV comercials. Bad news though: as much as I looked, I could not find even a single product to satisfy me completely! Thus, there is no need to spend a lot of money on the mascara, especially when you DO NOT HAVE large amounts to spend: an average one will make you look just as good and will save you 2/3 of the money.
6. Nail polish
Nail polish is a MUST, I am sure you all agree with me! And yes, many of us spend a lot of money to have our manicure done: the more complex and original the design, the better. But what to do when we have no money to spend on a fancy manicure? Don’t worry; the classic red will never be old-fashioned. Thus, choose red with confidence and do your manicure yourself. With a bit of attention and time, it will look sexy and professional. You don’t even need to buy the most expensive red nail polish on the market: the secret is in the way you apply it, not in the brand!
7. Make-up remover
For the health of your skin, you must have one! If you do apply make-up, that it , of course. In what the make-up remover is concerned, it would be silly to get the most expensive product on the market because they all do the same thing and they do it equally fast. The difference is in the ingredients they use. Thus, if you find one that uses natural ingredients and is also cheap, grab it, girl!
Most women use it and it would be a shame not to: the eyeliner truly makes the eyes stand out. There is no need for an expensive one, though: you may find a great eyeliner at a small price really easy. A bit more expensive is the water-proof eyeliner, which may be very useful sometimes: you don’t want to look like a zombie on your big date if it happens to rain, do you?
If you truly want to look good but your skin does not help you, what you need is a good foundation. Depending on your skin type, you may be satisfied with any product that fits your skin tone, or you may need a more expensive one. If you have a limited budget and yet, need a foundation, than research the market: it is so diverse that it is impossible not to find one that satisfies your needs, at an incredible price. Once you found it, you will probably stick with it for many years, so take your time!
10. Eye shadow
With eye shadow, things are not that easy. In this case, the rule is that what you get is what you spend, so if you are ok to basic dyeing of your eyes, well, yes, any eye shadow will work. But if you want a really good one, then you must spend some dollars on it. Don’t let big companies trick you though: not all expensive products are good and not all cheap ones are bad…reviews are very helpful when it comes to cosmetics, and especially, when you are looking for cheap cosmetics, that are also effective, so ask around!
