Stealing Beauty

You’ve shopped till you dropped more than you budgeted. Here’s how to outshine the tree on the cheap.

$10 and Under
Why, it’s practically free. Lanolin-Ägg-Tväl egg white facial soap is protein rich at only five bucks (Clover House, 900 Lenora Street; 206-625-0150). Yellow clay masks at Daiso (400 Pine Street, suite 36; 206-625-0076) remove impurities while nourishing the skin with aloe (get a three-pack for $1.50). And customized lotions or oils from 72 fragrances at The Soap Box (1916 Pike Place; 206-441-5680) form a distinct belt-tightening bouquet.

you’re so vain!$15 and Under
Just a five-spot times three. Let emerging stylists at Vain downtown (2018 First Avenue; 206-441-3441) trim your locks with a $15 cut special (as available). Ladies with a less than steady hand can turn to Gene Juarez (607 Pine Street; 206-326-6000) for a party-ready faux lash application. Beauty comes from within, so feed your skin a giant dose of vitamin D with LED light therapy at Duque Salon + Spa + Boutique (5348 Ballard Avenue Northwest; 206-706-7177).

high maintenance!$20 and Under
Hey, big spender. A brow sugar shaping by Erica Evenson at Jill Bucy Skincare (600 Queen Anne Avenue North; 206-283-9295) helps frame the face (mention DailyCandy). Treat yourself to The Mini Detail, a facial and makeup application at High Maintenance Skincare Studio (1706 Bellevue Avenue; 206-322-6939), marked down for DailyCandy readers. For everyday elegance, a Spa Noir (2231 Second Avenue; 206-448-7600) lash tint will make you bat your eyelashes, just not at the price. And grab a crantini with a vernis application at Julep Nail Parlor (1427 Fifth Avenue; 877-585-3707).

At least you won’t have to steal any glances.
