Beauty on a budget – From luxe to less

Beauty on a budget – From luxe to less


Entering your 30s changes many things and very quickly!

At around the age of 18 we hit the big wide world of “independence” and with “independence” brings bills, savings, expenses, bills and did I mention bills?

In our 20s we tend to have a bit more of a disposable income, that new Nars blush shade that we NEED RIGHT NOW!!! and that to die for Estee Lauder lipstick were on our credit cards quicker than we could say “interest rate”.

 However, as you get that tad bit older and realise that saving for life events, holidays, a new car and a house deposit isn’t as easy as our parents made it look – we need to make a few small sacrifices.

I’m not saying skip the makeup by any means – that’s not even an option, after all if we look great we feel better and the world becomes our oyster. That red lipstick is important for self confidence and goal kicking! I’m simply saying. let’s make some “alterations” and look for beauty for less and then more importantly, let’s watch our savings accounts grow and flourish.
