How to buy - Three Beauty Budgets - (Single Woman)

Pamela is prepared to slash out a bit on beauty

She has a good job, lots of dates… But when we worked out what she spends she got a shock.
“For that sum I should be able to afford some the more expensive cosmetics which still seem out off my reach!” Budget and they won’t be, we told her.

Suggested budget for Pamela
Approx. £ 1 per week - just over £ 4 per calendar month.

Fixed monthly buys
Four shampoo and sets @ 8s-6d
(Home “Polylock colour wave (8s)
when needed, instead of salon set)……..£1-14s.0d
Cutting ……………………………………………………7s-6d
‘Blue Grass’ flower mist…………………………..11s-9d
Nail colour (Gala ‘little Gem’ in basis pink shade)….2s-6d
Variable buys
On four rota – four –month supplies:
a. Town& Country foundation (Helena Rubinstein)..14s-6d
b. Large size Silk face powder … 15s
c. Refills for Helena Rubinstein lipsticks 7s-6d
& silk minute make-up …6s-6d
d. Tissues, cottonwool, unscented baby powder,
hand lotion by Vinolia refills, magic deodorant,
& nail polish remover- average ……………………………………..14s-3d
Alternate months – Theatrical remover..5s -average ……2s-6d
Coty vitamin moisture balancer.. 9s-6d
Every three months- average …………………………………………3s-2d
Eye make-up (Max Factor) average ………………………………5s

Total ……………………………………………($8.16)……………….£4-0-8

Using the above list let see what I would buy or change!

This budget back then was just a dream on my wage.

Looking at it now!

It would depend on what money you have available to spend - your job and time you have to spend on beauty routines.

I would be looking at wash n wear hair style as you would most likely be spending time in a gym too!
So the salon sets would be out and limited to special occasions. Good style cut to keep the hair suitable for corporate world.

But adding to this list a Sunblock SPF 30+, Tinted Moisturizer, Face mask, styling gel etc, Shampoo & Conditioner would need to be bought as the salon set covered this also looking for better prices on perfume, and deodorant and buying a hair styling blower. Buying all at lowest price you could fine. Switching to inexpensive salon for a good cut using a ‘wash & wear’ style and along with dropping the face powder and salon sets altogether.

Many of you may have different ideas of want is necessary but I do like the way this budget was thought out and may be the best guide in planning our beauty budgets for the future.
