The Frugal Face

We all like to look good, but do you really need to buy those expensive brand name skin care and cosmetic products? And do you really need to buy them from the cosmetics counter at DJs or Myer? If money is tight you can still look great without taking out a second mortgage on the house and you won't end up looking like a well weathered crocodile either.

There are any number of good skin care and cosmetic products readily available at budget prices that make excellent alternatives to those brand names. Aldi have a range of make-up that sells for between $2.95 and $5.95 per item and they are fantastic. If you don't have an Aldi close by, go to elf.com.au where you will find everything the image conscious female (or male) needs to look fabulous everyday. Budget department stores and pharmacies have extensive cosmetic departments with brand names often selling for 20% less than department stores.

And as fashions change so quickly, why would you pay $25 for a lipstick from a department store when you can get one that's just as pretty and does just as good a job at keeping those lips moisturised for $5?
