Top Ten Beauty Products Under $10

Many people think that you can only find great makeup products at expensive department stores and from expensive brands such as MAC, Sephora and other department stores. I however do not agree with that. Nowadays there are so many great beauty products that you can find in the drugstore that are affordable and just as good as other high-end products. Don't put a hole in your wallet or break your bank with these expensive purchases. Here are my top ten products under ten dollars that will leave you happy and guilt-free. Enjoy! (Comments are greatly appreciated)

1.) Revlon Lip Butter in "Strawberry Shortcake"-$6.49 from Target
This soft pink color is neutral and very pretty on the lips. The added bonus is that it doubles as a lip balm to provide your lips with added moisture. One of my all time favorite products by far!

2.) Maybelline EyeStudio Color Tattoo in "Bad To The Bronze"-$5.84 from Target
This cream eyeshadow is a stunning bronze color that will leave your lids shimmery and sure to get attention!

3.) NYX Slide On Eye Pencil in "Jet Black"-$7.99 from Ulta
This long-wearing eye pencil has all the benefits of a pencil with some benefits of a liquid liner. These pencils are very comparable to the Urban Decay Eye Pencils.

4.) Maybelline Lots Of Lashes Mascara in "Very Black"-$4.44 from Target
This mascara makes your extremely long while adding the perfect amount of drama. This triangle brush design allows you to get every last lash perfectly.

5.) Revlon Super-Lustrous Lipstick in "Primrose"- $7.49 from Kmart
This pretty pink gives your lips the perfect pout of color. It is also an exact dupe for the color "Snob" by MAC.

6.) Wet n' Wild Illuminating Powder in "Catwalk Pink"- $3.19 from CVS
These shimmering strips incorporate a highlighter,bronzer and blush into one product. The best part? It costs under five dollars.

7.) NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in "Milk"- $4.49 from Ulta
This white base is ideal for making your eyeshadows stay bright and lasting all day long.

8.) Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation-$7.29 from Ulta
This long lasting foundation provides you with great coverage and hydration to the face.

9.) Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss in "Pink Ice"-$7.49 from Target
Comparable to a MAC dazzleglass, this pretty pink gloss provides your lips with extra shine. Plus, it smells just like cake!

10.) NYX Rouge Cream Blush in "Boho Chic"-$6.99 from Ulta
This subtle pink is hydrating and leaves your cheeks looking dewy and "glowy".

Be Bikini Ready This Summer!

Some girls cringe when they hear the word, BIKINI SEASON. Everyone get's insecure sometimes. That is no reason for covering ourselves up in a huge piece of fabric. Everyone deserves to feel beautiful in their own skin.If you wanna wear a bikini, ROCK IT GIRL! Here are some cute, trendy styles that are sure to meet everyones needs!

1.)  The Classic Bikini- This classic "triangle" design suits many different body types and can look good on anyone if they rock it! This bikini, (shown below) also ties in the nautical trend with the anchors on the top and bottom.
PacSun Top- $19.50 Bottom- $17.50

2.) Bandeau Style Bikini- This cute style can make even the littelest of chest's look bigger. These cute bikinis can be worn with an around the neck strap or even just as a strapless top. These are perfect for getting a nice tan, (since you won't get tan lines up top). I reccomend these suits for girls that have smaller chests. But if you like these and don't have a small chest, like I said, rock it!
Forever 21 Top- $10.80 Bottom $12.80

3.) Monokini- This seriousley trendy suit is sure to catch the eye with it's daring cutouts and plunging neckline. This "monokini" can make even the straightest girls look curvy. These are also great for girls that don't wanna reveal too much skin.

Be A Trendsetter :The Affordable Way!

As alot of you know, keeping up with the latest "trends" can be pretty expensive. Especially when your a student, or even when you just don't feel like spending $80 on a pair of khaki shorts. As a fellow trendsetter myself, I like to look my best and in-style at all times. I also don't ever like to feel guilty for purchases I've made. Here is an affordable way to wear all of the latest Summer 2012 trends. I hope you all like it.xoxo,
Alli <3

1.) Colored Shorts- I've found that most designers have been featuring a colored bottom, or more or less, colored shorts in their latest creations/ styles. Here's an adorable pair I found at Forever 21 for only $11. What a steal! I will definitely be sporting the orange pair!
Shorts (More Colors Available) Forever 21-$10.50

2.) 60's Dresses- Many people knew the 60's era as the era, of peace,hippies and love. It was also the era of great fashion. This Summer, full skirts and 60's esq dresses make a huge comeback.
Dress: H&M-$19.95

3.) Gold- Gold jewelry, Gold dresses, you name it! Anything GOLD makes it on the trend list for Summer 2012.
Women's Multi-Loop Chain Necklaces from Old Navy-$15.94

4.) Neon Cropped Top- Incorporating two trends, neon and cropped tops, this punk, graphic tee-shirt makes it onto the trend list.
