I took the $20 Makeup Challenge!

After returning from travelling around the Northwest this past week I was super excited to film and upload a new video on my YouTube channel!  And what better to film than the most highly requested video from my viewers - The $20 Makeup Challenge!  So, the idea is to come up with a complete look (face, eyes, cheeks and lips), but all of the cosmetics and tools that you use must total under $20.

I knew this was going to be tricky but I didn't realize how difficult it would actually be until I got to Wal-Mart. Dun dun dun...

I must have looked like an escapee from an insane asylum, walking up and don't the aisles and tallying up all of the prices.  One little gem made this challenge a lot easier. The Wet n Wild Bare Necessities kit includes an eyeliner, 3 eyeshadows and a mascara for under $5.00 - score!

Some of the products I picked up were hits and some were misses, but you'll have to watch the video to find out and see if I stayed within my budget!

*Oh and special thanks to my mom for being my human calculator at Wal-Mart! ;)


  1. I am using a blush and bronzer duo from ELF and it was only 3 bucks! I think elf products are great for a really really low budget.
    This is a great look for a $20 challenge!

  2. The best $20 makeup challenge I have seen! I got really excited when I saw you using Walking on Eggshells as I just purchased it this past weekend! I also got Heather Silk after seeing you use it in a lot of your videos! :)

  10. are ok, I used their services few years ago, nowdays I am using and their Alpha Reseller package, I can see now they have Super Alpha Reseller so I can try it when I have more money , I am kidding are pretty cheap because they have own network compared with or they are maybe popular but they are just resellers, so is my recommendation, go for it

  11. The most commonly asked question for those looking for a reliable web host is this:
    Is cheap web hosting actually reliable?
    The short answer is that it depends heavily on what service you use and how much allocated bandwidth you are looking for
    But a reliable, cost-effective web provider is certainly not out of reach. Many
