How To Get A Peppy Make Up Look Under 2000


I have been wanting to write this post for quite sometime now. Many of my younger cousins who are just starting up on make up keep asking me for quality budget beauty product recommendations and to help beginners like them I put together a very carefully curated make up kit  to get a peppy look without hurting your wallet too much.

A basic make up kit with quality branded products in under 2000 was quite a challenge because I did not want to compromise on quality or go around suggesting non practical things like apply a powder blush with fingers.

So go ahead and look your peppy best with this make up kit in under 2000 only !

Base make up : BB cream
I don't use a foundation on daily basis ever since I started using a BB cream . Use BB cream from ponds, garnier or even fair and lovely. I personally love ponds most so I am using it here
Ponds BB cream price : 75

Elle 18 color pops Lipstick:
Best budget lipstick are Elle 18 colour pops which are moisturizing and give a decent wear time. Street wear also has some good lipsticks and lakme enrich satin satin lipsticks are very moisturizing but priced a bit on higher side. The Elle 18 lipsticks are hydrating giving a glossy finish so you don't need an added gloss but if you do want more shine on your lips top your lipstick with clear petroleum jelly (Vaseline)
Price: 150

Lakme Radiance compact:
I started off with this compact and it works well, giving a nice finish at an affordable price.
Price : 120

Maybelline cheeky glow blush :
These tiny little beauties are one of the most affordable blushes in the Indian market . They come in 3 shades and give a nice flush of colour to cheeks. This doesn't come with an applicator so you need to invest in a brush too
Price: 275

Lakme eyeconic kajal :
The best smudge proof kajal in Indian market is eyeconic from lakme and Maybelline colossal kajal but I am including eyeconic here because it is more intense and lasts longer . This can be used both on lash line and water line so it can double up as an eyeliner and kajal saving you money
Price : 210

Lakme insta liner :
If you really need a liquid liner in your stash then this budget liner from lakme works well. It gives an intense black line, is water resistant and a decent wear time too
Price: 110

Colorstay Shadow links from Revlon:
Budget eye shadows are rare in Indian market, earlier I used to suggest Elle 18 eye sparklers which are creamy, crease a lot and don't stay long on eyelids. The revlon color stay shadow links are a better option at present . If you can spend a little bit extra go for the Maybelline nudes eye pallette which costs around 850. In this kit I am adding two shadow links to create an eye look
Price : 175*2 =350

Faces cosmetic brush set with foundation sponge:  This was my first brush set and it has all required brushes a beginner would need. The quality is good and price is affordable so you can easily add this to your kit. It has a blush brush, lip brush, eye shadow brush, applicator brush and brow brush with a round foundation sponge.
Price : 295

Maybelline colossal volume express Mascara:
This mascara is my favorite for a long time now. It gives nice volume, doesn't clump and has a nice wand applicator.
Price : 350

So lets see how much this Make up kit final cost comes to
75+150+120+275+110+210+350+295+350 = 1935
A quality branded make up kit with all essential in under 2000. Awesome , isnt it?

* You can save on liquid liner if pencil liner works well for you on the lash line. Use it to invest in a lip gloss .
* Want to add a gloss to your kit? Try Maybelline baby lips in electric shock which is actually a well pigmented lip balm so it can double up as your gloss.
* If you want to add nail colours go for elle 18 nail pops of maybelline colorshow polishes.
