Anywhooooos. . . if you're makeup mad like me, there is a thrifty way that you can continue to keep your face fresh and fabulous while keeping your wallet fat and happy! So far, I've found that the key is knowing what areas you need to spend a little and what areas you should save a little.
Foundation: This is an area where I would recommend that you splurge a little bit. Maybe not department store type splurging (although, foundation is so important, that I wouldn't blame you if you did!) but you at least want to make sure that you have a good foundation that's the right shade for your skintone and the right formula for your skin type. If there was only one item that I could spend a little more on than the rest of my makeup, foundation would be it. For me, I use Cover Girl Nature Luxe. I actually received a sample of this during a product test that I was doing for BzzAgent and I LOVED it!! It's soft and smooth while still giving me great coverage. I typically wait to buy it when I have coupons for it but without a coupon it's still only about $12. Not dirt cheap, but not too bad, either.
