I was challenged to complete a entire make-up look for $30. This look would include: eye shadow, shadow primer, mascara, face primer, bronzer, face powder and blush. I decided to go to my favorite place to buy cosmetics, Ulta. As I walked into Ulta, I thought to myself “pfft! I got this challenge in the proverbial make-up bag!” However, my self-confidence diminished when I began pricing everything. I wandered around the store for a good 30 minutes trying to find the best prices for the best products.
I had a couple of coupons that I had clipped from the Sunday paper but even before taxes my total was $67.44. What a super fail! It made me realize what a challenge it is to get a quality make-up look and still stay on budget. Next time, I am going to re-do this challenge at Rite-Aide.
Wish me luck!
