A few weeks ago, I was browsing a beauty shop in downtown Chicago and stumbled upon an ad that had been circulating around social media and blog posts since early January.
It read: $5 for your eyes.
For your skin.
It’s a brilliant idea, I thought.
If only it worked!
I decided to give it a try, and soon enough I was scrolling through social media looking for people to post their own ideas for what they wanted.
I found many people posting similar ideas, and I thought I’d share some of my favorites.
So, without further ado, here’s my favorite beauty product ideas for $5, $10, $15, $20, $25, $30, $35, $40, $45, and $50.
I will be honest, the last two ideas are really the only ones I could see working.
The eyes and skin idea is a little more complicated, but I still feel like it would work, especially since it requires you to purchase a different product each time.
This idea is pretty much the only one I would think would work.
My skin idea was a bit more difficult to find, as it requires a lot of product.
I’m sure it’s possible, though.
If you can’t find a solution for $15 or $20 eye makeup, you can always make it up with $5 or $10 products.
That would definitely be a lot cheaper than buying an eye makeup brush.
Another way to go with $15 products would be to add a $15.00 makeup brush, and you could add $10.00 to the total.
Finally, $50 would be the most likely price for a makeup brush that could last you through a whole month.
I’m sure there are many other ways to go about making a $50 product, but the $5 and $10 beauty products ideas above do work for me.
As I mentioned, I’ve been using the $30 or $40 makeup products ideas for a couple weeks now, and they’ve worked for me well enough to recommend them to others.
$5 beauty products for eyes: I used the following eyes and face products to create this beauty product: Sephora L’Oreal Blush Nars Eye Shadow Dior Makeup Primer Giorgio Armani Eye Color Aromaleigh Dorsey Porefessional Lip Gloss Sephuagen Sugar Plum Essie Beauty Balm Shiseido Mascara MAC NARS Blushes Velvet Makeup Sephyre Lips, Nails, and Clogs: To create the lipsticks, I used Sugaree (a shimmery gold-infused shimmery red) and Rimmel Pepstick (a matte gold-toned pink) to create the shadows.
To the nail polish, I chose the Sewn Fabulous Makes Up for a matte gold shade.
After that, I layered L’Olive Rose (a rich, deep pink-tonal orange) on top of a Sakura Saffron Tint (peach).
Lastly, to the clogs, I added a $20.00 Lush Sculpture to create the clog.
So, without any further adieu, here are my favorite $5 & $10 makeup product ideas.
