Beauty on a Budget- How to Look Your Best Without Breaking the Bank!

Hello everyone! I am thrilled to welcome Mikal back for more of her beauty tips! You may remember her from our previous introductory post, where she shared the story of Mary Kay and some of her favorite ways to style these products. I hope you enjoy her ideas on looking your best within your budget.

I am so excited to come back as a guest writer on the Seams and Sprinkles blog! This time I will be sharing a few beauty tips to help you maintain your budget for looking your best. With the new year underway, we often set resolutions and want to try new things. Well this year, how about investing more in you? One great way to do this is to change your current beauty regime. New skincare products or a fresh selection of new makeup will give you the perfect pick-me-up!!

Mary Kay offers a variety of skin care and makeup products to help you look your best on a budget. Allow me to walk you through looking your best without breaking the bank. Let's start with skin care. Mary Kay skin sets will give you a refreshed, polished look and offer the following benefits:
  • Improves your skin's texture
  • Helps even your skin tone
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines
  • Leaves your face soft and moisturized
  • Fights aging

Mary Kay's TimeWise skin care products are available in two sets: 
  • The Basic Set- This set includes the TimeWise Cleanser and TimeWise Moisturizer. This set retails at $44 and all products have a three year shelf life!
  • The Miracle Set- Thid set includes the Timewise Cleanser, TimeWise Moisturizer, Day Solution and Night Solution. This set retails at $95 and also have a three year shelf life.

Each set works together to achieve soft, smooth skin with age-defying ingredients. They are also formulated for normal to dry and combination to oily skin types. The best thing about this investment in your skin is that all these products come with a 100% money-back guarantee if you are not fully satisfied with your purchase! 

Now that we have your skincare routine down, it is time to start playing in some makeup! 

Valentine's Day is around the corner, and a fun thing to try would be a new lip color or eye look to really make your features pop on this romantic day. The look I will be featuring is called "Picture Perfect." This makeup look was created by Mary Kay Global Makeup Artist Luis Casco. Using the products in this look, you will have a flawless finish for that gorgeous selfie!
