This budget infographic by the MintLife Blog teaches women how to be a recessionista. With inflated prices of beauty products and designer items, along with rising real estate and un-rising annual incomes, there comes a point where women have to be selective about where to splurge and where to save. The female-targeted infographic incorporates statistics along with conversational captions to make this an easy and enjoyable read.

MintLife suggests that women should save dollars on items such as lipsticks or eye shadows because the quality between drug store brands and designer do not differ too drastically. Meanwhile, on items like foundation that go directly onto the skin are exempt from budgeting. Blushes are also worth the $30 because higher pigmentation actually ends up lasting longer.
