Welcome Budget Beauties!
I'm Jen and I'm your typical everyday beauty addict. I'm not a makeup artist but I love makeup and I've tried almost everything out there, from drugstore to high-end. I'd love for this blog to be a resource for women on all budgets, high or low and I will always post honest reviews that you can trust. Anything I would recommend to a friend or family member, I'll pass along to you and if something doesn't live up to it's claims, I'll be sure to let you know!
A Little About Me:
I grew up in the suburbs of NYC and I worked as a Fashion Merchandiser for a major department store for 5 years, and then in Operations at Sephora for 4 years until I became a stay-at-home Mom when my son Henry was born in June of 2013. I married my husband Eric in June of 2011. He's a software security architect and is also a talented composer (though he doesn't have much time for it these days).
I live in Connecticut in a small town that I absolutely love and is perfect for raising a family. But it's also great to still be close enough to NYC to go to the occasional Broadway show, visit the museums, or my favorite, go shopping!
About The Budget Beauty Blog
The Budget Beauty Blog has offered readers in-depth reviews of beauty products for all budgets ranging from drugstore to high-end since 2009. I've found that most women love the thrill of both a splurge and a bargain, so while I focus on drugstore products, I also make sure to cover the hottest, most talked-about makeup, skincare and hair products at all price-points. In addition to reviews, I offer readers a first look at new products as soon as they hit the store shelves. I visit my local drugstores, specialty and department stores several times a week and post photos of new products to my social media accounts right from the store, as well as later on the blog itself. I also regularly post about sales and deals relating to beauty products as well as comparison posts between similar drugstore and high-end products.
