My makeup collection is filled with some of the most fabulous products, and believe it or not many of them are sold at a great price. Here’s a list of my favorite (and most affordable) makeup products – good luck trying not to buy these!
These eyeshadows are my go-to’s. The shimmers are so unbelievably pigmented, and they apply like an absolute dream. Each palette is filled with a surplus of transition matte shades, and those too hold a lot of pigment and go on smoothly. The palette on the left is 35R, and the palette on the right is 35F (I own both and use them all the time – I promise). Now here’s how I use these palettes: First, I go in for the matte peachy or yellow shades and apply them in my crease – using a fluffy blending brush (I pretty much use this same brush for all matte shades used). Then I further deepen the crease by going in with either a matte mauve or chocolate brown in the outer-v of my eye. To finish, I take a shimmer shade with my finger and sweep it over the lid! If you’re interested in purchasing makeup brushes, morphe sells them for cheap and they’re great quality.
If you’re the type of person who prefers an intense glow, this product is definitely for you. I like to spray my highlighting brush (I use a fan brush) with a little setting spray and then I dip it into the product – this makes it look more dewy and intense.
Nyx Wonder Stick ($12)
Since it’s summer, I have been straying away from using powder products. I do this because I think creams look a lot more natural on the skin. I absolutely love this contour and highlight duo (however, I mainly use the contour shade). It’s super easy to blend out – either with a brush or beauty sponge – and instantly creates a sculpted, warm look.
Milani Bronzer XL ($10)
This bronzer has an incredible matte finish and doesn’t make you look too orange or ashy – it’s the perfect in between and comes in 3 shades!
Milani Baked-Blush ($8)
Pigmented, shimmery, and a stunning variety of shades!
When you use this foundation you will be SO shocked you didn’t just spend $50 for it at Sephora. It feels high end and provides medium to full coverage. It minimizes the appearance of my pores and never leaves me looking oily or cakey – truly a must-have.
L.A. Girl Pro Conceal High-Definition Concealer ($2.38-$3.25)
Two words: high-coverage. This product truly can conceal just about anything: dark circles, acne, etc.! I like to blend it in with my beauty blender!
Mattifies and sets your makeup so it lasts all day! If you’re looking for a pigmented matte powder, this Rimmel one is for you (click on hyperlink)!
A great primer for those with dry skin! Also can be used to create a dewy look!
This product stays true to everything it says on the bottle – I’m obsessed.
Hello fuller, longer lashes!
