Top 6: student-friendly budget beauty buys
Being a student can be tough sometimes. I mean, you’ve always got loads of textbooks to read, crazy-hard tests to study for, and you’re always broke. Like, really broke.
But this doesn’t mean you can’t still indulge in a little wander down the beauty aisle. Not at all! In fact, we at bh HQ have deemed doing so the perfect study break activity, especially when you can pick up nifty, super-cheap beauty buys like these…
BUDGET BEAUTY #1: Australis Paparazzi Perfect Tinted Moisturiser
Caked-on, super-heavy foundation isn’t exactly welcomed in the classroom, so opting for a sheer, complexion correcting tinted moisturiser like this one will give you an A+ in the beauty department.
BUDGET BEAUTY #2: essence 2 in 1 Volume Mascara
Team your luminous face base with a volumising mascara like this one for flirty, fluttery lashes. Added bonus: it’ll make your eyes look bright and wide-awake no matter how much late night study cramming you’ve been doing. Love it.
BUDGET BEAUTY #3: Ulta3 Nail Polish
Lacquered, shiny nails make you look instantly chic and, erm, polished, but that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune on them. Ulta3’s HUGE range of nail polishes has every colour under the sun (think nudes to neons) and each one is just two shmackers. Brilliant!
BUDGET BEAUTY #4: Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Seal-to-Clear Gel
Zits can strike no matter how many candles were on your last birthday cake, but this perfect do-it-all product not only helps to heal your pimples and fight bacteria, its super-spiffy sealing formula also blocks outside bacteria from making your blemishes worse. Yep, no matter how many times you touch your face, those nasty germs won’t be getting affecting or infecting your zits.
BUDGET BEAUTY #5: TRESemmé Split Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner
Can’t afford regular trims at the local hair salon? No worries. This brainy duo helps to bind frayed, split ends with regular use, meaning you’ll be able to push that date with the scissors back just a wee bit further.
BUDGET BEAUTY #6: Impulse Very Pink
If splashing out on a fragrance just isn’t on the cards with you student budget, a body spray is the perfect alternative. You’ll feel fresh, smell sensational and most certainly attract the attention of that boy your crushing on…
