Fall Makeup That Won’t Break The Bank

Philadelphia and D.C. based beauty blogger Alicia Tenise

It’s officially Fall, my friends, even though it doesn’t quite feel like it outside at the moment. With a change in season, I like giving my closet and my beauty cabinet a little refresh! While I tend to wear lighter makeup in the summer, when it finally gets a bit cooler, I like to play around with new shades, pick up a new mascara or two (you should replace mascara every three months!), and start rocking some of the beauty trends I spotted at NYFW

I like having a good mix of high-end and budget-friendly makeup at all times. I was recently introduced to BeYu Cosmetics, and I found a few new fabulous, affordable makeup staples that won’t break the bank! They’re a high-quality European brand that offers a wide variety of pigments and shades, they don’t test on animals, and they are a great option for those who have sensitive skin.
BeYu Cosmetics Eyebrow Stencil Set

The best affordable makeup products (cruelty free!)

Here were some of my favorite BeYu Cosmetics products that I tried this season:

Eyebrow Stencil Set

Anyone else struggle to get the perfect eyebrow shape? I loved BeYu’s Stencil set in particular ― this pack came with five different eyebrow shapes to choose from, and then you can stick one of the stencils onto your skin and draw in the perfect eyebrow shape. I use this with my trusty brow powder daily now, and it’s helped me fill in my (super light!) eyebrows every morning.

Smoothing Lip Base

When I travel, I often forget all of my favorite lip liners, so BeYu’s Smoothing Lip Base was an absolute lifesaver. It primed my lips and got them ready for even the brightest of lipsticks. As a woman of color, sometimes lip colors from drugstores aren’t super pigmented on me, so this product helps make the lip color pop a bit more.

Soft Liner for Eyes

I was in need of a soft liner for the bottom of my eyes, and BeYu’s Soft Liner fit the bill perfectly. It’s waterproof (hello, I have the worst allergies, and I’m always tearing up!), and it’s long lasting, so it gets me through any long day of traveling, meetings, a night out on the town, you name it!

Want to try out BeYu products for yourself? You can pick them up at your local Wegmans or Target.com!

Thank you to BeYu cosmetics for partnering with me on today’s post! All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  1. I’ve never heard of this brand before! Lip base sounds like a neat idea, though. I used to use stencils for my brows! I think I still have some, actually.
