Every girl needs some makeup to trust whenever they’re in a hurry. Or whether it’s going to an event and you need products that you know will make you look great! So, I’m here to share with you my top ten makeup products that ALWAYS have my back (in random order lol). Hopefully this helps all of you who are looking for that perfect makeup product to try. (I tried to keep this list on the affordable side. Obviously, some are more on the expensive side than others, but it’s so hard to narrow it down between ten products lol! Prices are listed on ones I could find.)
This is by far my absolute favorite, FULL COVERAGE, liquid foundation. It always seems to go on velvety and leaves my face feeling fresh and smooth. It lasts me literally ALL DAY without getting cakey or patchy. It’s so affordable and the quality of the makeup leaves you wondering why the price seems like such a steal. You can pick this Matte foundation up at any drugstore, Ulta, even local Walmart for as low as $5.35.
2. Fit Me Matte and Poreless concealer by Maybelline
Now how can I tell you about the foundation without telling you about the concealer?! This concealer does wonders. It does an amazing job of covering my undereye circles and blemishes. The applicator tip is like a lip gloss tip and I love the way it goes on buttery and blends out smooth. You can also pick this up at any drugstore, Ulta, or Walmart for $6.99.
3. Coty Airspun loose face powder
Once I found this powder I absolutely fell in love! It does an amazing job of setting your foundation and concealer, and lasting all day. The price for the HUGE amount that you get is crazy cheap! Mine lasted me for eight months at least! Again, you can pick this up at any drug store, the price is normally around, $7 to $8.
4. Anastasia Dipbrow Promade
This isn’t as affordable as the other three things that I have mentioned, but it is well worth the price! I cannot go without this, it transforms my brows and leaves them looking clean and defined. I’ll be honest, I thought I’d be terrible at doing my brows with this; but it’s super easy and I love how well it makes your eyebrows look. I picked mine up at Ulta for $18.
5. Too Faced Better than Sex mascara
Again, not as affordable, but when I’m in a hurry and need my lashes to look ON POINT this mascara is there for me! I have so many friends who love this mascara and can back me up when I say this…you will not regret spending the money on it! It makes your lashes look wispy and long, and even if you don’t buy the waterproof, this mascara stays on your eyes for such a long time. You can get yours at Sephora or Ulta for $23.
6. Amelia Knight Colour Couture contour kit
I absolutely love my contour kit made by Amelia Knight. The contour is not too harsh, which is perfect for me because I like things on the softer side. The highlight is out of this world beautiful! I purchased this at Kohl’s, which is where you can find a lot of Amelia Knight Colour Couture things. I do not know the price but here’s a link to their website ;) : http://www.ameliaknight.com/brands/colour-couture/
7. Too Faced Sweet Peach eyeshadow palette
Okay, okay, I know what you’re saying, “This is totally not on the affordable side.”…But this palette is TO DIE FOR! If I had to pick between all of my eyeshadow palettes, I’d pick this one. It’s such a go to palette for me when I want something more natural yet glam or when I want FULL OUT glam. The colors are so pigmented and beautiful! Plus, I mean it smells heavenly too…so that’s like double points. ;P Ladies, it’s okay to treat yo’selves every once and a while…you can get yours at Ulta for $49!
8. NYX Soft Matte lip cream in the shade Los Angeles
Out of all of my lip glosses…this is the one I use the most and count on. It’s definitely more of a nudey, brown shade. What I like to call, “the safe shade,” and I’m okay with that because every girl needs a lip color they feel confident in and love. ThisNYX lip cream dries matte, but leaves my lips still feeling smooth and creamy; it doesn’t get drying and crack like many other matte glosses. You can pick this up at Ulta, Peebles, and CVS, I got mine at Ulta for a cheap price of $5.99.
9. The Nudes eyeshadow palette by Maybelline
This palette is definitely there for me whenever I’m just going for a nude, plain look. Nothing more, nothing less. The colors are a safety net, and perfect for beginners not looking to go so bold yet. It’s so, so, sooooooo affordable and Maybelline itself is such a great brand when you’re on a budget, but still want that good quality that looks expensive. You can get this palette, along with many others in this collection, at any local drugstore, Ulta, or Walmart for as low as $7.49.
10. City Color Collection primer spray/matte finish
I absolutely cannot do my makeup without setting/priming my face. Without the primer, my makeup doesn’t seem to last near as long, opposed to when I do use primer. This is a primer I have fallen in love with and have actually purchased at Burke’s Outlet. It does its job and sets my makeup perfectly! I do not have the price so here is the link to another primer by City Color that looks somewhat similar to mine: http://citycolorcosmetics.com/primer-spray/
This is much different than my normal Monday recipe blog posts, but I figured I’d change it up this week! Hope ya’ll enjoyed, comment some of your favorite makeup products that you can’t live without. Because this girl loves to do me some makeup shopping! ;)
