how-to…brighten up on a budget

I am a working girl who goes to school full time. This means three things for me. One, I don’t have the time to focus on myself because I am always rushing from one place to the next. Two, I often find myself looking dull and tired from all of the excitement that happens on a daily basis. And three, I have to feed my shopping habit on a tight “college budget”. Can anyone relate?

The Pretty Committee

So how can we nail these three points you ask? The answer is The Pretty Committee. The Pretty Committee is a Benefit Exclusive kit at Sephora. It includes a full sized bella bamba box o` powder, a stay don’t stray, an eye bright and a high beam mini. It is the perfect combo to get you from looking dull and drab to glowing and fab (without having to break the bank)! This kit is an $86 value for only $38!

beauty on a budget

Here are some easy steps for how to get a full-on, glowing look for under $100:

Step 1- Smooth hello flawless oxygen wow foundation, in ivory over your entire complexion.

Step 2- From The Pretty Committee set, pump a little bit of stay don’t stray on the back of your hand, then apply three dots under your eye and three dots on the lid of your eye and blend. This product is awesome because it can double as a primer and a concealer.

Step 3-  Apply eyebright pencil to the inner and outer corners of your eyes and blend. This is sure to brighten up your tired looking eyes!

Step 4 – Dot and blend high beam on your cheek and brow bones. I also like to put a little bit on the bridge of my nose. This will give your complexion the perfect amount of glow.

Step 5 – Sweep watermelon pink bella bamba on the apples of your cheeks for the perfect pop of color!

Step 6 – Brightening up your eyes with mini they’re real mascara  (the mini is only $1o) to your lashes.

Step 7 – Glide NEW bella bamba lip gloss ($16) on to lips to brighten your smile.

All in all, the whole look costs $98, but it makes you look and feel like a million bucks!
