Budget Beauty: Classic Glam for Under $10!

Who’s ready for some budget beauty?classicbeauty1For years, I’ve worked to tame my natural curls with dozens of straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers. While I love keeping my hair styled straight or waved with a wand, it’s easy for my hair to fall brittle and dull with all the stress I put it through.

Full disclosure, ladies: Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Deep Conditioning Protien Packs have done amazing things for my hair.

I first discovered the product at the drugstore earlier this year and figured…hey, it’s a quick and easy hair mask with my favorite healthy hair staple, coconut oil, and it’s in a convenient pack that I can easily get two to three uses out of. A total win across the board, not to mention the price tag! I threw it in my cart, tried it the next day and the rest was history. I still use this product religiously (about once a week). It adds the perfect amount of moisture and shine that my tamed natural curls desire.

I consider it one of my little secret weapons.

Why? Because as long as I have it tucked away in my purse, carry on, or make up bag…I know I’ll be fresh faced in a flash no matter how long of a day (or evening) I’ve had.

In my opinion, it’s important to always have freshly painted fingernails.

You can never go wrong with an understated pink, cream, or nude color because these colors, more often than not, work to compliment any outfit or occasion.  This pinky-nude color, Private Viewing by Wet N’ Wild, is the perfect example because it looks great on every skin tone and definitly works as a neutral nail color that is sutable for both casual and formal dress and occasions. For only $1.99? You’ll have enough extra cash to grab a pool-side pink hue, too! classicbeauty4Finally, it’s time for Retro Red Lips.

It doesn’t get anymore classic than this!

When I saw this shade from NYC, I knew I had found the perfect way to top off a classic glamour look. It goes on smooth and stays on all night. The budget beauty game just declared it’s champion.

Want to get your hands on these products? All you need is (less than) $10 and a local drugstore!
I found all four products at CVS Pharmacy…but I’ve linked each product below if you’re more of an online shopper. Either way you buy, enjoy this round of classic glamour budget beauty buys!
