I’ll be honest, when I picked up #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso I never thought there would be so many valuable personal finance lessons in it.

I am a make-up wearing feminist. While I don a more natural look for everyday occasions, you will rarely catch me out in public for an extended period of time without some form of make-up on. Blame it on my 6 years of working for Estee Lauder during undergrad and then briefly after college.
My skincare regimen and regularly used cosmetics are two things I tend to splurge on as I have rather acne prone, extremely oily, and pretty temperamental skin. So you can imagine I cut costs wherever I can. While I absolutely refuse to part with my Spiked brow pencil from MAC, traditionally I’m less loyal when it comes to liners and mascara’s. That is until three weeks ago when I found a drug store eye liner that has trumped any liner I have ever used.
If you are looking to cut your make-up budget one product I recommend without hesitation is Covergirl’s Perfect Point Plus liner. It goes on smooth, isn’t chalky, and is pretty long wearing yet easy to remove if you screw up application.
It’s only $5.75 on sites like soap.com who also currently has a buy one get one free special on them.
I’m learning that being financially fab isn’t so much about deprivation, its about making well thought out, financially responsible decisions.
