Why you are here
Welcome to our blog! We created LuxeBudgetnistas as a way to share our love for all things beauty, fashion, life, and travel. We love living that luxe life, but we also understand that there are means that we have to stay within. Tia and I are going to show you how to live that luxe life on a budget. Whether it’s showing drugstore alternatives to a high-end makeup brand, date night ideas on the cheap, budget-friendly shopping days, and travel on the cheap. This is just the beginning! We want to show you that it is possible to be frugal and enjoy life. And why shouldn’t we? We only have one life to live.
We also decided to join forces for a number of reasons. One, for example, is our skin tone and skin type. This gives us the opportunity to provide two different reviews for the same product. Also, one of us is a little edgier- oh, who I am kidding? Tia is a skull, leather, and glitter kind of a girl and Jacki is your natural, nudes, classic kind of a gal.

Let’s meet Jacki, the owner of Luxebudgetnistas, once known as Makeupateers.

Jacki loves finding a good deal on all things beauty, fashion, travel, and food. When I am not working my full-time job, you will find me working on the blog or living at the dojang with my youngest kiddo. I also love to fill my brain with anything and everything. You are never too old to learn because as we get older we learn to discover we don’t know everything!
