Miscellaneous : Do it like Blake Lively, but cheaper!


Hey girls! About a month ago Mary from the blog Madeinheart did a blog post on a look of Blake Lively that she found on Polyvore and how to achieve it with less expensive products. She asked me if I wanted to collaborate with her and do something similar, so I did and I tried to find products even cheaper than Mary! Take a look at the original picture with Blake Lively:

Powder, nail polish, perfume, lipstick, lipgloss, lipliner, mascara, eye brush, eyeliner : total of €213 !!!! (prices found online by Mary)

Here’s my version :

Essence Maximum Definition Volume Mascara (around €3.50)
Essence Gel Eyeliner in Midnight in Paris (€3.99)
BU Free Spirit Eau de Toilette (around €9.90)
Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish in 115 Redvolution (€2)
NYX Long Pencil Lip in Plush Red (around €4)
Elf Mineral Booster in Sheer (around €6)
Elf Contour Brush (around €4)
Elf Lip Stain in Red Carpet (around €4)
Lovie Lipstick in Nr. 19 (€2)

Total : around €40! Not bad at all, huh? You don’t have to pay a fortune in order to look polished you know! Damn, I know… Blake Lively would look good even if she was wearing clown makeup and a plastic trash bag, but hey we can look great as well wearing her makeup! So, would you try a look like that?


  1. Α δεν παίζω... το budget σου είναι πάαααααααααρα πολύ μικρό σε σχέση με το αρχικό και με το δικό μου. Αυτό το βερνίκι κάτι μου κάνει...νουμεράκι θα μας πεις; :)

  2. @Marie ή είσαι drugstore & bargain lover ή δεν είσαι! ;) Χαχαχα! Καλέ το γράφω το νουμεράκι του βερνικιού! 115 redvolution, τσίμπα το! Είναι ένα πολύ όμορφο φλογερό κόκκινο! x

  3. Δεν το είδα καν... εντελώς ξανθιά... ;)
