For me, shopping for makeup is like a bargain scavenger hunt. Whether I’m using coupons or waiting for a Friends & Family sale, I’ll do whatever it takes to save money. To be honest, I often hesitate to buy high-end products because I know I can usually find a substitute from a drugstore brand.

It's hard to stay organized (and beautiful!) when you're living in the cramped quarters typical of college towns.

The Know: Monkey Business

If its one thing I hate shopping for, it's beauty products.
