Tracey is a 29 year old dental assistant who has turned being fabulous and fashionable on a budget into an art. This girly-girl knows how to keep her bank account in check by using products that can be found in any drug store. Although she looks and dresses like a pop culture princess she doesn’t spend like one. Tracey turns to magazines to get educated and learn what is worth the value.
"I'm a big ELF cosmetic fan. It's super cheap!” Tracey says. She mixes her ELF liquid liner pen with NYX MATT foundation. NYX foundation offers full coverage at a reasonable price. It can found at ULTA stores for around $9. Tracey also loves NYX eye shadows and Wet ‘n Wild liquid eye liner. To get a natural looking glow Tracey has just recently started using Victoria’s Secret self-tanner. This product is available at Victoria’s Secret stores for $15. Tracey promises it’s worth the money!
Like many, Tracey is very cautious about what she puts on her skin. “I’m pretty picky with what goes on my face because I'm prone to break outs,” she explains. She currently uses Cetaphil face cleanser, bar soap, and moisturizer. Tracey says, “It's perfect for my skin type and it's not too harsh.”
To maintain her brunette coif Tracey uses an array of different products. She currently uses John Frieda’s Brunette’s Shampoo. “I just recently went to brunette and that helps me keep my color vibrant,” she says. Tracey uses her Hot Tools curling iron to style her hair. This product can create both tight and wavy curls. Herbal Essence spray gel along with a spritz of Grainier Frutis hairspray helps Tracey keep those curls all day long.
As far as her clothes, Tracey can often be found in her scrubs or work clothes. For when she’s off duty she goes to jean shorts, t-shirt, and other comfy items. When going out she loves to fun dresses. “Forever 21 is my go to store,” she says and boasts about their jewelry selection as well. Tracey also has different suit jackets that she can use to dress up a casual outfit. Tracey says, “I try to be unique with my outfits. I'm not about spending a lot of money on things, and you can do that without breaking your wallet.” You will also see Tracey trying out the latest styles including a high wasted jeans and shorts and big sunglasses.
To keep in shape this twin (yes, Tracey has a twin sister!) runs outside, does some toning exercises, and dances. This life–long dancer is not a huge fan of the gym saying, “I always stayed in shape by taking dance classes!” To wind down from her work outs and time at work Tracey will often grab drinks with friends or spend time with her large, loud Italian family. “I’m happy and content,” Tracey says of her life, “but there is still more I want to do! I know I just have to keep pushing for what I want.”
