One of the reasons April7style was created was to help young ladies look good without spending too much and I am such a huge fan of looking good for less. With these hacks, you can focus on spending your money or budgeting for something else because as a young lady we have too many expenses to cater to.

I have been using these makeup hacks for a while and I haven’t gotten a negative remark on my makeup which shows that these hacks would still make you look good and they are budget-friendly.

My everyday makeup look is pretty simple and I like to keep it very basic and clean. I just change lipstick colors to give a different look depending on my mood and the place I am going to.
