We can’t always order a full face beat for every outing. Every now and then you might like to do your own makeup, at least for an everyday look. To achieve this, you need to build up your makeup kit, and I’m not talking about a full on kit per say. All you need are a few affordable makeup products that will serve the purpose for your simple everyday look.
The basics items are all you need for your personal box, and here I have provided a list of affordable makeup products that will make your box look like that of a pros.
The List of Affordable Makeup Products
These products are just as good as the high end brands we all know about. Another way to save more is to patronize local brands. Yes, we need to get over the stereotype that anything made in Nigeria is not as good as international brands.
There are lots of Nigerian brands that produce affordable makeup products that match up to foreign brands. I bet if I asked most of us, we will mention at least 5 – 10 international brands off the top of our head, but this can not be said for local brands.
Here are all the basic affordable makeup products that you will need for your makeup box to have you looking super chic.
We all know that foundations are the base for our makeup, and the kind of foundation you make use of determines how long your makeup will last. You don’t need to break the bank when shopping for foundation, neither do you need to worry about getting one in your right shade. These foundations provide solutions to both of the most pressing issues; the right shade and a fair price.
