100K Makeup Challenge Part 1 : Daily Look5:56:00 PM
Hello hellooo! How's everybody doin'?
So! I received very good response on my first One Brand Tutorial (i'm planning to do another one, hopefully soon!), that got me thinking-maybe i do need to post more varieties for my beauty posts (instead of just review, review and review). Another type of beauty post that i've been wanting to do is the budget restricted challenge. If i'm not mistaken, the most popular ones are the IDR 200k/150k-which i personally think is pretty easy #smug because of how affordable our drugstore and local brands are so i decided to go more extreme : 100k Makeup Challenge! (For my international readers, IDR 100K is around USD 8)
|Obviously i did it #evensmugger and here's the result. Yep, it's very simple and ordinary, this is a budget restricted challenge not a specific themed look tutorial so save your protests|
And as the title suggested, i will be doing MORE 100K MUC, this is just the preliminary, the easiest of the bunch : daily look. Here are the products used for this look :
|Products used for my 100K MUC : Daily Look|
1. Purbasari Foundation (shade 01 Natural) IDR 8.550
2. O.Mary Compact Powder IDR 12.000
3. Mukka Eyeshadow Palette (Teenage 03) IDR 25.000
4. Unbranded eyeliner IDR 4.000
5. Maybelline Baby Lips Love Color Lip Balm (shade Berry Crush) IDR 31.000
Total damage : 80.550. OMG am i good or what WTF, i spent a lot less than the budget and i didn't even realize it until i am typing this LOLOLOL. I am the Bargain Queen alright :p.
Okay while we already know awsome i am in finding good priced products, why don't we do a little step by step (yes, another tutorial for dummies thingy hahaha) and i will tell you snippets about the products+where i get them. You know for if you're interested
|Well hello my pale zombie bare face :p|
|A must for oily skin : Powder to set the foundie!|
|Mostly the budget is saved by this palette! Mukka eyeshadow palette (dunno why they call it eyeshadow palette since there are also two blush ons featured) Teenage 03. I'm not so sure about the official price of this product, i checked the price and it's mostly IDR 30.000, i got it for IDR 25.000 from kutekmurah.com. Btw, i know there were all kinds of controversy for this brand, i even heard some of their products were pulled from the market because they contain unsafe ingredients, but i also heard that Mukka is now an official brand (check out their FB page here) and their products are now registered under BPOM already so... I decided it's safe enough for me haha.|
|For this look i only used two colors (and the white one as highlighter) for my eyes, the pearly champagne one and the dark, reddish brown one|
|Then the reddish dark brown one on my double eyelid. FYI, the pigmentation is actually quite good, i used it very lightly because i want the look to be very clean, bright and safe for day look!|
Oh yeah, i skipped doing my eyebrows because the only eyebrow product that i know how to use is eyebrow mascara (plus my bare eyebrows are totally decent on their own #luckyb) and that would definitely bust the budget. I could easily add that famed Viva eyebrow pencil and stayed under the budget safely.
|From the same Mukka palette, i used the bright pink blush on for a fresh look since the O.Mary compact powder totally muddy up my complexion >.<|
|You can see how harsh and powdery the O.Mary powder is in this pic. Granted, it works better if used with creamier base (which has more coverage), i also found a way to make it work for me by using it together with Marcks loose powder, the white one!|
|For such a restricted budget, a two in one product is a life saver. This one's actually a three in one hahaha (lip balm, lip tint and lip gloss rolled into one), i just picked one from my Baby Lips collection (i am nuts about Baby Lips FYI) hahaha. I used the Berry Crush from Maybelline Baby Lips Love Color line. I don't remember the price of this product (i always buy them during promotions), i doubt i paid more than IDR 20K. You can find it easily everywhere (drugstore, supermarket, minimarket) or online. I decided to use the price stated there too.|
|The final result, tadahh...|
In conclusion, is it possible to spend only IDR 100K for your entire face? Totally. Is it recommended? I don't think so *LOL*. I am all for affordable makeups (i love nothing more than a good drugstore product), but you need to know which product you can spend minimal on and which one you need to add more budget on. I learned from this challenge while you can use cheap foundie OR powder, you should not use both at the same time *LOL*. I also learned that IDR 4K unbranded eyeliner is a no no, spend a bit more for a decent ones please!
It was a totally fun challenge and i had so much fun doing it, i hope you enjoy it too! I also hope y'all look forward to the second one, i will attempt a night look >.<, yes with the same IDR 100 only!
