Budget Beauty – May 2011 FOTD Challenge Day 14

Budget Beauty 1

Ok, so it turns out that when I posted this challenge, there was some confusion about today’s challenge. Some people thought it meant a full face of makeup for under $30. Let’s be honest though, makeup in Australia is RIDICULOUSLY expensive, so that was never going to happen.

Today’s FOTD was done using only “budget friendly” makeup, and all but 2 items should be readily available at your local chemist and priceline!

I wanted to showcase some great Aussie beauty brands that I have been really enjoying lately, so this post is going to include some mini-review as well. So strap in and get yourself a cup of tea and a biccie, because this will be a loooong post. (and the very last product I reviewed is my faourite! Read on to see what it is!)
