To be honest, I’ll take a good dewy, inexpensive, long-lasting drugstore foundation over high end foundation any day of the week. There are so many great drugstore foundations out there, so I wanted to dedicate a blog post to them. I feel like my skin changes color a lot (aka getting tan and losing that tan) so I have to buy like 4 different shades of foundation every year. Since I can’t really justify buying 4 different bottles of high end foundation a year…I buy 4 different bottles of $10 drugstore foundation. As you can tell from the title, these foundations I’m going to be talking about are all for dry skin. My skin (bless it’s heart) is always extremely dry and sometimes dull looking. So the foundations I use are dewy and geared toward dry skin. Dew (I’m sorry, I just had to use this pun) you want to know what the best drugstore foundations are?! Then just keep reading!
Happy 2018 everyone!! Since it’s the start of a new year, I thought I would do a best of beauty 2017. I’ve tried so many new products during the past year and I want to share my favorites with you all! I love both drugstore and high-end products so there will be a mix of both in this list. I know I’ll continue to love these products in the coming year but I can’t wait to see what kind of new and amazing products 2018 brings!
Holiday beauty gift sets are some of the best things to get (and/or give) for Christmas. I personally, love receiving them because they usually come in super cute packaging with a bunch of goodies inside and how awesome is that?! And if you’re buying them for someone it’s a great value! (You’ll pay like $45 for something that would originally have cost you $75). I have combed through the Sephora and Ulta websites and picked 10 of the best holiday beauty gift sets that I think are super fun, cute, and special. Buy one of these for your mom or sister or yourself…because you deserve it!
Did you know…that makeup brushes…don’t only have to be used…just for putting on makeup…? Well I used to not know that! I thought they only had one purpose and that purpose was to make your makeup look #flawless. But…ever since I started really getting into makeup, maybe about 4 years ago, I have come across other ways to use makeup brushes! Now, I didn’t invent these hacks, but I do want to share them with you guys because I think they’re pretty awesome. I hope you enjoy reading this post! But once you’re done…you’ll never look at those makeup brushes the same ever again…
Welcome to my new series…Sephora hits and misses! Each time I post about Sephora hits and misses I will focus on a specific category, so for example this first post is the highlighter edition and maybe next post will be the foundation edition. Get it?! I hope you find these posts helpful because I know when I walk into Sephora, I get so overwhelmed with all the different choices they have. Everything in the store looks like it would be amazing…unfortunately looks are sometimes deceiving (looking at you Sephora PRO highlighter palette). Hopefully this post helps narrow things down for you! I for one, don’t want to spend over $30 on a highlighter that’s going to make me either 1) look like a greasy hot dog or 2) look like I have no highlighter on because there’s no color payoff. I did a bunch of research and read tons of reviews to make this post as accurate and helpful as possible! Happy highlighter hunting!
I don’t know bout you, but I love splurging on luxury makeup products every now and then. YSL foundation, Bobbi Brown lipsticks, Marc Jacobs eye shadows…but that’s the thing…I’m splurging on those products. I love you Sephora…so much…but sometimes I have to save a little money. Most people can’t afford to purchase high end makeup products all the time (including yours truly). Thankfully, there are many great products out there that won’t break the bank. I have discovered my favorites along the way and I also have watched some of the best YouTubers to see what their tried and true favorite “drugstore” makeup products are. So with this knowledge, I have compiled a list of 50 of the best makeup products to buy on a budget (and they’re all under $15 dollars!!!). I broke it down into categories and also provided links to each product. I hope you find this list useful! Continue reading “50 Best Makeup Products Under $15”
