Hi! I’m Chelsea and I run MakeupOnATightBudget.
I started this blog because I, like many other people in this world, am a broke college student. Which means I have no money to spend on the things I want. Makeup, as we all know, can be extremely expensive and brands over charge for the same thing you can find in a drugstore. Sure, the quality might be different-heck, sometimes the drugstore brands are better quality-but you still don’t have to spend that much to look amazing. I believe that makeup is for everyone to enjoy and you can do so if you budget yourself and see what steals you can find.
My makeup journey began around 2012-2013. I grew up never liking makeup-at all. I refused to wear anything other thank lipgloss. I thought that wearing makeup made you feminine and as a teenager I wanted nothing to do with femininity (i know realize that you don’t have to be feminine or a girl to wear makeup, just someone with a passion or flair for it!). Then one day, being bored out of my mind on Youtube, I looked up a makeup tutorial. I thought, “Hey, this really isn’t that bad is it?” and it wasn’t! From then on, it was an obsession. I just wanted to rush out and buy every single bit of makeup from Walmart. I was itching to get my hands on any and everything and start trying. I’ve learned everything I know how to do from Youtube and from my experience practicing on myself and others. Then I wanted to showcase my skills and inform others using a blogging platform.
My love for makeup and creativity continues to grow everyday and I try my best to document that in this blog. I hope you enjoy reading it and come follow along!
