$20 Makeup Challenge Tag

I thought I'd challenge myself and see what makeup look I could achieve that's under $20. I have lots of drugstore makeup but $20 is such a tight budget when you're doing eyes lips and face. I wish I hadn't thrown out my $1 ELF eyeliner and mascara, that would've really pulled together my look. But I didn't have an affordable eyeliner (I'm picky about my eyeliners lol). But I guess that's what makes it so challenging.

It was pretty difficult to blend out eyeshadows with a sponge tip applicator >_<. I chose the Vanity palette by wet n wild because it has all the colors I need (lid, crease, highlight and brow fill-in) and is still affordable and comes with an applicator. For the face I chose a stick concealer by ELF, and set it with Rimmel's translucent powder with an affordable face brush from ELF. I used my blushable creme stick from NYC as a cream blush and a lip color. It's crazy how you can have lots of affordable products but how fast they add up! Hope you enjoy the tag and give it a try if you haven't!
