(CHEAP FINDS) 1000-Peso Makeup Look

Hey lovely girls! I’m really excited for today’s blog post because I managed to create a look using really affordable locally available drugstore products. My budget was 1000 pesos (≈20USD) and fortunately, I was able to fit everything within the budget and create and entire look. If you’re interested to know which products I featured in this post, keep reading. 🙂

LONGEVITY: (photos taken after 8 hours)


  1. Fashion 21 two-way cake – lasted 4 hours before oil started to build up (even on my dry skin), retouch with powder is needed after 4-6 hours, did not become patchy
  2. Shawill perfect powder – lasted well both as contour powder and eyebrow powder (8 hours or more)
  3. ever bilena evera color pencil – lasted well on the eyebrow (8 hours or more) without smudging, smudged slightly on the eyes (after 6 hours)
  4. Fashion 21 eyeshadow kit – lasted well on the eyes but has fallout, eyeshadow primer is needed for them to last longer and be more pigmented, lasted well as face and inner corner highlight
  5. Maybelline Hypercurl mascara – waterproof, smudgproof and held the curl all day (8 hours or more), best everyday mascara I’ve ever tried! 🙂
  6. ever bilena matte lipstick – lasted well on the cheeks (6-8 hours), lipstick needed to be reapplied after one meal
