Shopping for makeup is no easy feat. It takes time and effort to find the right colors, best tools and long-lasting products — especially while sticking to a budget!
In the second episode of "Change for a $20," I visited a local Target store in New York City with big goals: to find a foundation, concealer, eyebrow pencil, blush and mascara in that price range.
Aiming for five items was ambitious, but I quickly realized that it was also very doable. With lines like e.l.f. and Wet n Wild, I found affordable options fairly easily.
When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, here's a little secret: Try to use products in more ways than one.
Another tip? Use your eyebrow pencil as eyeliner.
And to truly make the most of my $20 budget, I scoured the shelves for a peach blush that I knew would also work well as a shadow color. At the end of the day, powder is powder!
I got really lucky, too ... it turned out to be a clearance item!
I ended up spending $18.63 on the full look but left with an experience that was truly priceless!
