- I was not compensated for this post. However, Milani was nice enough to gift me the products for this tutorial and the Giveaway.
I have a fun post for you guys today. I decided to do a whole budget friendly makeup look for around $100.00 in partnership with Milani Cosmetics. They are one of my favorite drugstore brands and you have hear me talk about them many times. Makeup can be expensive and the choices are overwhelming, so I thought it would be fun to put together a comprehensive list of everything you need for an entire makeup look on a budget. This is perfect for women 40+ or mature skin. If you haven’t worn makeup in a long time and don’t know where to start, this post is for you. If you have an event to go to and need to wear makeup and don’t know where to start, this look is for you.
DRUGSTORE MAKEUP TUTORIAL FOR WOMEN 40+
I linked all of the products at Walmart for you. They had the best prices and this way, you click the links, they will all be added to the same cart, so you can simply check out your entire look in one place and have it delivered overnight for free, or you can order it for pick up. The total for this whole look is $89.12. I am also excited to be giving away 5 shadow palettes to 5 lucky winners over on Instagram.
PRO TIP – To get your perfect foundation match head to the Milani Cosmetics website, where they have a tool on their website that will help you find your perfect shade.
DRUGSTORE MAKEUP TUTORIAL FOR WOMEN 40+
CONCEAL + PERFECT FOUNDATION $9.99 | This is a full coverage, water resistant foundation and concealer duo that evens out your skin and cover imperfections, but delivers a natural, polished finished. I was super impressed with this one and I love that it comes in 45 shades.
BAKED BLUSH $ 7.99| Another favorite of mine, this blush has achieved cult status, and for good reason. The colors are pretty, easy to use and so blendable. The luminoso shade has been dubbed the perfect dupe for Nars’ iconic Orgams blush. Personally, I prefer the Dolce Pink shade. It leaves a perfect, rosy flush on my cheeks.
LIFTING & CURLING MASCARA $ 9.99 | You can skip the lash curler with this one. It defines, lifts & curls your lashes all in a couple of easy swoops of the wand. It doesn’t clump, but magically makes my lashes look thicker and full. This is huge for women 40+, as our lashes tend to get more sparse as we age.
EYE SHADOW PRIMER $6.99 | this eyeshadow primer helps to even out your lid and make your shadows go on smoother and last longer. The nude tone also helps to diminish redness on your lids, which is the main culprit for tired looking eyes.
BROW SCULPTING PENCIL $8.99 | I love how the tip of this pencil makes it so easy to mimic brow hairs for the most natural, defined looking brow shape. Personally, I am not a fan of the dark, bold brow and I feel that it can really look aging on women my age. I much prefer a natural sculpted brow to lift up my entire face. One of my favorite sayings is ” Brows are the picture frame to your face.” They need to be subtle, but defined.
SHADOW PALETTE $19.99| An amazing shadow palette for an amazing price. This palette contains a nice variety of matte and shimmer shadows in wearable neutrals, that will give you so many options to create different makeup looks from natural to bold. I am so impressed with their pigmentation, blendability and color payoff
PLUMPING GLOSS $8.99| One of my holy grail lip glosses. These are perfect for women 40+, as their sheer glossy colors leave lips looking fuller and more youthful. I love this gloss so much. I don’t find it to be plumping, but I love the colors selection and the cool minty tingling it leaves on my lips. These glosses feel lightweight and nourishing and are not sticky or tacky at all. My favorite shades are Blush, Prismatic Peach and Luminoso. I am wearing the Blush color in this tutorial.
SETTING SPRAY $9.99 | With up to 16 hour wear, this setting spray will help your makeup look flawless all day long. It can be used under and over makeup, and I like to spray it throughout the day to freshen up.
There you have it. A complete makeup look for around $100.00. Who said, good makeup has to be expensive? Have fun experimenting and contact me with any questions.
