affordable special event makeup
My favorite game as a child was playing dress up with my mom’s high heels, fancy jewelry, and makeup. I’d smear on blue eyeshadow, fuschia blush, and red lips, and stumble around in shoes that were 3x too big for me. I probably looked like a clown, but I felt so glamorous- so adult! Now that I am an adult, I still love having an excuse to get dressed up- parties, performances, a fancy dinner, you name it! I never turn down any chance to wear a fancy dress, high heels, and fakeeyelashes. I may not look glamorous on an everyday basis, but nothing beats playing dress up for special events! Now as much as I like special events, I am not a fan of spending extra money on “special event makeup”. I like to use my drugstore holy grail products to create a million dollar look for a very small price tag 🙂
