In Australia!? Is that even possible???
Yes, almost, kinda..
Yes, I attempted to do the $20 makeup challenge and if you live in Australia you can understand just how difficult this actually is.
I set off to Target as I heard that’s where they sell the brand Essence. Essence is a very cheap affordable brand and believe it or not they do have some nice products considering the price.
Apparently the mascara I got ‘I love extreme crazy volume’ is very popular in the UK and USA so I was told.
As you can see I didn’t purchase a foundation as I couldn’t afford it with the $20 budget, so instead I got a concealer.
The eyeshadow I chose is in a pink shimmery colour and I chose that colour because I didn’t own anything like that colour.
I chose the lightest lip liner they had in ‘hot chocolate’ and the lipstick is from a different brand, Lips and the colour is ‘Auburn’.
I chose the mosaic compact powder as I could use it as both a bronzer for contouring and a blush.
And the total came to $21.40!
Just over budget but not by much. So it is possible to get a makeup look for under $20 but you might want to cut back on something like either a lipstick or lip liner not both and do what I did and buy a concealer instead of a full face foundation.
So this is the look I created with using these products,
