Affordable Makeup for a College Girl
Going to a college is the time when we girls begin experimenting with makeup. College life is a tad bit busy, the pressure of dealing with it is not less than a roller coaster ride. But busy as you may be, you cannot ignore your skin. But getting your hands over quality, affordable products is daunting. Fret no more, we’re here to help you! So, take a pen and jot down all the basic cosmetics that we list and guess what, all of ‘em are under 500 bucks!
Pamper yourself with these pocket-friendly makeup tools. Let’s get started!
A good face wash that can take all that dirt away from your face at the end of the day is a must! I’d suggest to invest in multi-tasking products can act as scrub, face wash and mask. One good option is Garnier 3 in 1 face wash. It acts like a magnet, pulling dirt and junk out of pores. Isn’t it a great deal at INR99.
Liners are huge yay! It enhance the beauty of eyes by defining them. Go bold with winged liner or plain Jane by just lining the eyes, choice is your 😉 These days, liners come in all shades. My personal favourite is Colorbar Color Intense Liquid Liner. It costs Rs. 350/- . Please be careful with who you look at, because you are about to burn a couple of hearts with those fabulous Cat-eyed, Smudgy,or intense-angled look!
3. BB Cream
It helps even out your skin tone, hide spots and give a healthy look to the skin. Opt for the shade nearest to your skin tone & Blend it like Beckham! The Ponds BB Cream is a good pick. It provides medium coverage and settles to a semi matte finish. It’s for Rs.125/-
Literally a must-have in your makeup kit! You can do matte, gloss, or metallic and, oh so many shades to choose from. Nude shades are in vogue nowadays! For all the college girls out there, go for simple yet elegant colours.
Synonymous with beauty and mystery. Kajal has explained and transformed the women’s makeup circle for years. A staple makeup product. I will recommend you guys to buy Maybelline Colossal Kajal. It lasts for 5-6 hours, water resistant and smudge proof. It is just for Rs. 175/-
6. Nail Paint
A flawlessly polished set of nails goes a long way to make a woman look groomed. If you’re one with brittle nails, you should always apply the nail paint in layers. My personal favourite ‘Maybelline Color Show Nail Lacquer’ comes in 40 different bright shades. It brightens up tanned hands and feet. Price: Rs.110/- for 9ml..
Because “Prevention is better than Cure.” Whether it be premature aging or pigmentation, the sun is the biggest culprit of all time! Therefore, one should buy the best sunscreen (don’t ever compromise on it). The Lotus Safe Sun Matte Gel SPF 50 at Rs 236/- works really well, as it does not give your skin a white sheen or an oily finish.
8. Facial Wipes
Your savior for such hot summer days. This scorching heat only means one thing and that is, the ‘facial wipes’. It freshens you up instantly in lazy hot days. I will definitely recommend Kara Plum and Aloevera Sunscreen wipes. These are unique wipes enriched with SPF 20 protection. The small pack consist of 10 wipes which is for Rs.80/- and the big pack of 25 wipes is of Rs.125/-
A black or dark brown mascara is the easiest way to make your eyes pop. Getting your eyeliner on fleek needs practice. The mascara, however, is easy to start with. The Colorbar Lash Illusion Duo Mascara at Rs 450 is flawless with its elongating tube.
10. Tinted Lip Balm
Maybelline has the best SPF lip balm products for dry lips. The moisturizer tinch will heal chapped lips. It has pretty protective tint and save your pout from the sun.
