The 20$ makeup challenge- The Indian version

Hey guys,

So this post was in my mind since so long but I was facing some serious internet issues the past few days so was nt able to post it. Today I finally did my 20$ ( 1100 INR) makeup challenge using most of the items that are available in India. I tag you all to do it, I would love to see your looks too. So here goes mine! 🙂
Products used:-
Lotus matte radiance foundation- Reviewed here. INR 175
Garnier tinted eye roll on- Also used in this look here. INR 200
Wet’n’Wild eye shadow palette- Walking on eggshells INR 150
Maybelline Colossal kajal- INR 140
Lotus herbals lipstick Peach creme- Reviewed here– INR 250
Oriflame beauty wonder lash mascara- Reviewed here– INR 180
All the products used.

Bare face without any makeup


I used the foundation on my face and the concealer under the eyes and on the eyelids because we are not using any eye shadow primer
My skin is even toned and the dark circles concealed. I did not use an face powder as I wanted to use a concealer. But you can skip the concealer and use some face powder from Maybelline or Oriflame, anything that fits the budget.


Using this Wet ‘n’ Wild palette for the eyes. The Eyelid colour on the eyelid, darker colour into the crease and the lightest one under the browbone and inner corner of the eyes


You can see that the eye shadow looks very natural but yet polished
Line the eyes using a Kajal. I m using the Colossal one which I specifically bought for this challenge.


So onto the next step, the mascara.



So this being done, the eyes are now complete
Next step is lipstick and blush. Since we are only supposed to spend 1100, I am using my lipstick as a cream blush.
The lips are done!
Now blend it by gently tapping the fingers
Also if you want you can use a little bit of Kajal into the eyebrows to give it a fuller look. But dont make them too artificial looking.
And we are finished! Here is the finished look. Hope all of you like it 🙂




Total cost- 175+199+150+140+245+180= 1095/-
So success!!
Let me know what you guys think with your comments! 🙂

  11. @Preetha Karthik- Thank you so much 🙂
    @Shourima- Thank you 🙂

  12. @Kanak5678- Hi Kanka. Actually the coverage is good. It gets sheer if you use it with a sponge, but otherwise it is medium and evens out the skin tone very well. The coverage is definitely more than the Ponds TM and is matte too 🙂 Hope this helps

  13. @Niviya giri- Thank you so much 🙂 It means a lot to me. 🙂 I had to give a lot of thought about the products I was gonna use coz I dint want to use some bad brand or something 🙂 Hopefully one day I ll want my own youtube channel too <3 Thanks for commenting

  19. @Bhumika- Thank you so much 🙂

  20. @SJ- Thank you 🙂 I would say that the lipstick is definitely a 4 on 5. Its too creamy but goes on well and lasts long 🙂
