So I always write about my best beauty buys but I haven’t yet done a post that shows you how you can which budget buys can be used to rock the current SS13 trends here is SA. I went to an event yesterday and everyone either had a bright pink, red or orange lip as well as myself and it got me thinking about doing a trends post on a budget.

In the main image above I have chosen 3 key trends which is the bright lip, smokey at the bottom lash line and the minimal make up beautiful contoured face. So here are my budget picks so that you can work the trends and not break the bank.

Bright Lip: They part of this look is the fresh skin and the pink lip. For thse skin try Maybelline FIT ME Foundation (R150) it has a lovely dewy finish and looks very natural and for the lip try Maybelline Colour Sensational in 904 Vivid Rose (R69.95) its a beautiful pink shade and really hydrating on the lips.

The Lower Lashline: This look has a focus under the lash line and a soft wash of colour on the lid paired with a beautiful flawless finish and contoured skin. For this look try Catrice Absolute Nude Palette (R64.95) apply the lighter shades on the lid and on the bottom lash line blend in the darker shades and for  the skin opt for Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation (R169.95).

Minimal Make Up: This look is all about the flawless skin and contouring with a little bit of mascara and a nude lip. For this look try Avon Ideal Flawless BB Cream (R89) it has more coverage than most BB creams and feels amazing on the skin and the Catrice Sun Glow Matt Bronzing Powder ( R54.95) for the natural contouring on the face as you want the look to be like you really aren’t wearing anything.
