Is a Limited Buying Plan OK Here?

Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I am a makeup addict. wink.gif

 

About a year ago, I took a job that makes me so much happier than my previous one - but I made a big sacrifice when I did it, as the pay is $13,000 less per year. For a while I still bought a lot of makeup, but running up my credit cards stressed me out, and now the price of gas is straining my budget even more. So... I am now making a limited buy makeup budget.

 

The deal is that I can spend no more than $100 on makeup each month, but I must attempt to spend less than that and save the remaining money.

 

Now, I have to really plan any hauls that I may decide on. Absolutely NO sudden impulse buys. That is what I need support on - I often find myself wanting to swing by the MAC counter at lunchtime or landing on one of my fave brand websites and seeing something I so want... but I am trying to resist and only buy things I will use (or nothing at all).

you can do it! and just think if you spend less one month you can save what you didnt spend and if need be you can use it to spend more on a new mac collection you love...

Its good that you set yourself up on a budget. that way you don't buy stuff you really don't need or won't ever use because you'll actually have to think about what you're getting. I've done the same thing. I limit myself to 100.00 a month as well and it turns out pretty good.

A limited buy is great! It think it's better to indulge your yourself a little than to cut yourself off entirely. Good luck!

You can do it. I agree that low buys are much easier to stick to than no buys, cause at least you can still get things you really want.

    • Why dont you try Sephora Collection 10 hrs foundation? It will be the best for you as far as your problem is concerned.
    • hey there , I have normal skin so for that i use foam based conditioner thats from LAKME  {lakme absolute facial foam}. Its really good my skin. you should definitely try it.
    • The toturial is being very nice and helpful for the girls who are like to syle thier eyebrows , the pink color always suit to ladies with smoky brown shadow really make the difference ..
    • Hey! I don't really use primers but I'm sure someone else who will come across this post might be able to answer!  For the oily skin, I would recommend putting setting powder on your face, mist it with setting spray (Lightly) THEN apply foundation.. give that a try. Also a great tip for oily skin is use waterproof mascara instead of normal... as normal mascara will transfer onto your under eye area over time and upper lid due to oils.  Also Mac foundation has great coverage for any blemish and scarring. I'm just looking on google now and it seem to highly recommend Charlotte Tilbury's airbrush foundation.. I know that brand is more on the pricy side.. but its worth checking in store and getting one of the girls there to do a test on your skin before purchasing.  Hopefully theres something useful you can take from this. let me know if you come across other tips that work!  x  Linda 
    • @Beautybyluo Yes!  I use and love ELF 16HR Camo Concealer in "fair" since my so pale.  The coverage on this concealer is great.
