For makeup, It's just covergirl pressed powder (I don't break out like I used to, so its mainly just hiding a bit of red-ness on my face. Works perfectly!) and if I'm feeling up to it, eyeliner and eyeshadow (E.L.F. is usually my brand of choice, everything is $1 on their website. The studio collection, everything is $3. Can't beat it.) and Lash Blast mascara. Although I see that was mentioned already ;)
Carmex is amazing, as well. I live where they make it, so I can go to the factory and get it for hella cheap. So I couldn't tell you how much it costs.

I've got it lucky skin-wise. I just wash my face with a bar of unscented dove body soap when I'm in the shower, and that's pretty much my skin-routine.

I hatehatehate painting my nails. I do my toes sometimes, but that's it. So I never do it.

I am actually obsessed with makeup and beauty stuff, but most days I just tight line (Which is lining your top water line.) my eyes and put some mascara on. I buff on some powder foundation, blush and lip gloss. If I am feeling pale I'll put on some bronzer too lol. I usually wear eye shadow like maybe 2-3 times a week, and it's never the same because that is boring.

I use tigi oatmeal and honey shampoo and conditioner, otherwise my hair is like a granny perm, then I use MOP shine drops when my hair is wet, sometimes I use Aussie leave in conditioner as well.

On my face I use Botanics sensitive cleansing mousse on the days I wash my hair, on others I use a cream cleanser. I always use a toner, an alcohol free one of course. I use a Johnson's moisturiser in the day and nivea cream at night, I always use the cream cleanser when I was my face at night as well. I use a tweezerman stick to keep my pores unblocked, they are really good.

Make up, I use
Primer - Gosh
Blusher and lip colour - benetint
Mascara - bad gal lash
eye shadow - mac or benefit
eyeliner - mac pencils, rimmel felt tip eyeliner, or a dark eyeshadow used with a wet flat brush
brushes - all mac

I use veet facial wax strips to wax my eyebrows, by my actual eye brow hair is quite long so then I trim them as well, otherwise they are wild!

I barely EVER wear make up. If anything, some eyeliner for special occasions. For hair, I don't put products in it, just use some Dove [or whatever is around] shampoo & conditioner & just towel dry :)

I never really felt like I needed to wear make up =/ Idk if it's a good or a bad thing?

i don't think it's bad. i spent most of my life not wearing make up. i've only really got interested lately, and even then it's just some foundation and maybe some eye shadow if it's for a special occasion.

makeup- revlon colorstay foundation in ivory, mineral veil powder, concealer (i always switch around different kinds of concealer, i've yet to find one i really like), lo'real liquid eyeliner (not the telescopic one which SUCKS, the one that you paint on) LOVE that eyeliner! and i've started to really really like collassal mascara. i use a mix between elf and face secrets makeup brushes. i recently bought one of those maybelline color sensational lipsticks in "born with it" it's sooo pretty, it's a really light kind of nude pinky color. i only wear lipstick on special occasions though, like parties and whatnot because i feel weird if i just wear it in everyday life.

i wash my face with st. ives apricot scrub it's SOOO good. it smells and feels wonderful. i use tresemme (i can't spell) shampoo and conditioner in the moisture rich with vitamin E. i'm trying to grow my hair out and this shampoo helps keep your hair from damage, i don't have a single split end !

Plenty of sleep, yo, and eat lots of fruits and salads. Don't do very many facial expressions, then you won't get wrinkled. Don't smoke, don't binge drink, avoid artificial additives and sugar and wheat. Wash hair and bod with baking soda. Once a week, massage self all over with olive oil. Go swimming and you'll get toned. Take barleygrass supplement - it boosts your immune system. Avoid getting bitter, because bitter people look older - it makes their mouths and eyes look all pinched. Enjoy the little things in life and have a laugh, yo - laughing keeps you young!

Wear suncream or a moisture with spf in everyday as well to avoid sun damage.

I forgot to say in my earlier post, I use nails in nail varnishes, undercoats, topcoats and cuticle treatments.

The best beauty tip I can give to a girl is to be pretty. Then make-up doesn't matter.

I'm going to sound slightly snobby when I mention all my beauty stuff, but ehh... it's the truth.
Shampoo/Conditioner: If I get a good deal, I use Tigi Peace Love and the Planet or Desert Essence Organics (DEO) coconut shampoo and conditioner
Face wash: DEO tea tree oil face wash. Do NOT get this near your eyes or it'll feel like you poured acid into them. To get makeup off, I use a little olive oil on a cotton ball
Body wash: Either DEO Coconut body wash or Method Olive Leaf body wash
Face scrub: I do this weekly using a mix of sugar and olive oil. I make sure to scrub my lips as well
Body scrub: I use sea salt and oil weekly or whenever I shave. Exfoliating before shaving will get a much smoother shave. I bought a huge jar of sea salt at the dollar store just for body scrub.
Face lotion: Alba moisturizing cream in the morning, DEO facial moisturizer at night.
Body lotion: DEO coconut hand/body lotion and/or The Body Shop Coconut body butter (mostly for my driest body parts).
Do I sound like a complete snob? lol. The thing is, ever since I stopped using products with tons of chemicals, my skin has looked so much better. I get horribly dry skin and it's barely a problem now. It's pricey, but works well. Face coverage: Don't need it because my face is clear... sometimes I use Physician's Formula Organic Wear tinted moisturizer.Eyeshadows: Hard Candy's vegan line or The Body Shop. Lips: Burt's Bees tinted lip balms.Mascara: Have yet to find my perfect mascara. I have long, straight eyelashes that have to be curled every day. Seems like either the mascara is too thin and runny which leads to clumps or it's too thick and my eyelashes straighten out from the weight. It's a predicament.As for real beauty secrets: soaked green tea bags on your eyes when they're puffy. Also, a plain russet potato slice on each eye works as well. Take a soothing bath: use a cup of epsom salts and open a few herbal tea bags into the warm water. Rinse your hair with water before jumping in the pool to keep it from absorbing the chlorine. Eat right, take vitamins, don't drink and smoke.

My husband calls me a tree hugging hippie because all my body products are organic and/or vegan or eco-friendly. lol. He can't believe how much some of it costs but then he remembers how bad my skin was (dry, cracked, bleeding etc) and now he's all for it.

honestly i am totally in love with some of the cheapest makeup out there, i totally rock the wet n' wild brand as well as the NYC brand. the only thing i don't skimp on price wise is my mascara due to having majorly sensitive eyes.
lorel rimmel pressed powder and bronzer
wet n' wild eye crayon
wet n' wild eye shadow trio
nyc lip crayon
burt bees lip balm
maybelline great lash mascara
all this takes like 10min tops

Cheap eye make up aggravates my blepharitis and I get sore eyes. So I use Clinique for eye liner and mascara (plus they do good deals every now and again).

The most expensive piece of make up I own is my Benefit foundation but it's the only one I've managed to find that is pale enough to match my normal skin tone (I'm typical Scottish... pale skin, red hair). Plus it's very quick and easy to apply as it comes as a stick.

shampoo is lush shampoo bars.
i have dreads so i don't use conditioner nor does my partner anymore because she finds her hair much more managable without it.
we only use lush soap, body wash and massage/body butter bars as well.
Make up is:
covergirl foundation, which i rarely wear.
pressed powder.
whatever eyeshadow i grab at the time.
annabelle eyeliner, applied to only the top lid.
& its usually the organic eyeshadow that shoppers drug mart carries but we were recently given a huge box of avon products which has about 20 tubes of mascara in it.
Facial cleansers are currently avon, but once those are gone we will go back to using lush sea salt scrub.
toothpaste is crest white & white night. They were on sale once so we got both, and have never looked back.
For coloring my dreads i use lush henna bricks but i'll be using some cheap chemical brand soon because they need to tighten up.

I use "True Match" by Loreal concealer, foundation, and powder. They're light on my face and I break out a lot less using it. I like that they're all 3 the same thing, too, because you can get perfectly matching ones ;-D.

Eyeshadow just differs from day to day. I don't by any single type. Although for Christmas my mom got me some Bare Escentuals (Bare Minerals) eye shadows that are very light, easy to put on, STAY on all day, and are easy to take off. I think they're going to spoil me!

I've recently started using CoverGirl's "EyeLights" mascara.. different ones for different eye colors. I usually think that kind of stuff is crap (I have green eyes and the mascara is black but sort of purple tinted), but it works well.. it doesn't clump and even the waterproof kind comes off with ease and gives definition to my eyes.

I use Revlon blackest black, roll up/self sharpening eyeliner. I put it on top and bottom, but not all the way to the corner of the eye..just around the eyelashes themselves. I think it's important to use eyeliner as a way to define my lash line instead of put it on thick.

I don't use much on my lips.. mostly just Burts Beeswax chapstick ;-D.

I use Aveeno face cleansing discs.. not sure of the right name, but they come in a green plastic jar. They're self foaming, one side is soft, the other is textured.. gets all my makeup off and leaves my face feeling moisturized and smooth, not dried out or cracked.

I have an issue with dandruff, especially in winter, so I use Head and Shoulders shampoo and conditioner. It's not the same old stuff it used to be.. it comes in all kinds of scents and for all kinds of hair textures. I also use Infusium 23 spray in my hair after I wash it, which makes it shiny, soft, and takes the static out if it in winter.

Lastly, I have very sensitive teeth and am using Sensodyne toothpaste. To be honest, it hasn't been helping me much.. so if anyone has any good things to recommend for helping sensitive teeth, do tell!
