Hello loves! I am so excited to write about this post because it is another collaboration with my lovely friends, Jackie of fivetwocertified.blogspot.com and Angela of angelaricardo.com. Also, I just love the holidays! Christmas makes me really happy. The Christmas trees, glimmering lights, sugar cookies, christmas songs, shopping for presents and Christmas parties!
I thought it would be really fun to share you beauties what make up look I would wear using products that I bought from Rite Aid for less than $20. YES! A full face make up plus a classic holiday eye make up look for less than twenty bucks! How awesome is that?
To spice up this collaboration, we thought of engaging everybody who would wanna do a $20 Make up Look with us. It is just like the very popular tag called “The $20 Make up Challenge” but to change it up a bit, the challenge is the products must be from Rite Aid! Here are the rules to follow:

Onto my game plan..
As you can see, I have two receipts because I actually went to two different Rite Aid locations. Two trips on the same week, so they had the same sales and discounts pretty much. What I had in mind is to really show you that you can achieve a full face make up without spending a lot of money. And I really wanted to get a variety of products from different brands and use them in as many ways as possible. I could have gotten a foundation from a different brand but I just picked this one from Maybelline because I do like it. I also picked the products that I thought I would keep after doing this beauty tag.
I got five products for $17.17 before taxes after all the discounts. Maybelline was having a 40% off everything that week, so I was able to get their Fit Me Foundation and “The Nudes” palette. NYC was having a 50% off everything, so I bought their Smooth Skin Pressed Face Powder. I also got a Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Red Velvet and Rimmel London Extra Super Lash Mascara and I applied my 20% off for these products.
How I did this look? I applied the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation all over my face then set it with NYC’s Smooth Skin Pressed Face Powder, just like the usual. Then I grabbed Maybelline’s “The Nudes” palette and took the sixth shade on the top row which is a matte deep brown shade and used that to fill in my brows. For the eye make up, the first shade I took is the second shade from the bottom row which is a perfect matte brown shadow and I used that as my blending color all over my crease. Then I took the same shade that I used for my brows and used that to deepen my crease and give this look a smokey effect. And of course we cannot forget the focus of this make up look, the gold shimmer on my eyelids using that third shade on the bottom row. I also added some of that on my lower lash line just to make my eyes stand out more. The last shade I took was the fifth shade from the bottom row and I applied that on my brow bone and my inner tear duct to highlight those areas. I used an angled brush and the Rimmel London Extra Super Lash Mascara for my simple winged out eyeliner and also for defining my top and bottom lashes. For contour, I used the second shade on the bottom row of the palette and the fifth shade on the same row for highlight. Lastly, this look wouldn’t be complete without a classic Red Cherry Lips, I used Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in Red Velvet.
And that is it for my “Classic Holiday” $20 Make up Look! I hope you beauties liked it, I’d love to know what you think and I hope you join our beauty tag.
