Makeup is essential to almost every girl. Between eye shadows, mascara, lipstick and primers, shopping for makeup can get a little pricey. A lot of times, when you buy a product you pay more because of a name brand not necessarily the quality of the product. And we all know how much we’ve all spent buying endless mascaras, foundation, etc to find the perfect one for us. Well, hopefully I can make this process a little easier for you. After searching through many products, and trying them out myself, I picked out a few that I think are an absolute must have in our trusty make-up bag. And luckily they won’t cost you an arm and a leg to purchase them.
Sephora is a great place to shop because they offer a lot of discounts when you sing up for their rewards card. Even better, you can go right to the store and try them out yourselves before you set yourself up to buy anything. And the awesome make-up experts will even show you how to use them. So, if you’re on a budget but still want to look absolutely flawless, check out these seven must-haves all for under $20.
1. Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
This is absolutely incredible. After you’re done putting your face on, a few sprays of this will keep your make up on for the whole day.
2. Clinique Quickliner for Eyes Intense in 14 colors
This is great because it has a thin rotating point so you never need to sharpen you eyeliner. This eyeliner also gives you nice smooth line. There’s fourteen colors to choose from which is always a plus. When I’m feeling adventurous I go for a purple or turquoise cat eye.
3. Tarte Deluxe Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
This is your basic mascara but it does wonders. It make your eyes camera ready all day every day.
4. Smashbox On The Rocks Be Legendary Lipstick Duo
Lipstick is so in right now and not just the classic bright red. Purples are so in right now and Smashbox has a great combo deal. This product has a decent amount of variety of colors to choose from.
5. Laura Collection MicroSmooth Baked Bronzer Duo
I don’t know about you but I can’t leave the house without my bronzer on and this is a great one. You can choose to go darker or lighter or combine the two. The lighter side is luminizer and has shimmer to give your face a great glow.
6. BareMinerals Clear Radiance All-Over Face Color-$29
You can never go wrong when you choose an organic product. BareMinerals prides on being a natural product that doesn’t cake your face and it is so easy to take off at the end of the night. Use this before you put on any other make-up.
7. Clinique Line Smoothing Concealer
On those days when you are over worked and under slept. With a little bit of this product under your eyes, you’ll fool everyone.
You can order all these products online or you can go right to the store and try them on first and try them on for yourself. Makeup is so versatile and is supposed to be fun to play with, the possibilities are endless. However, it doesn’t always seem that way when you have to spend so much money on different products every month or so.
It can go from a fun experience picking stuff out at the store to a stressful process. You’ll either end up with one or two products or a bunch of cheap ones that don’t work with your face or don’t last you through the day. You’ll end up using the product a bunch of times a day and you’ll have to go out and buy stuff again much quicker.
Now you don’t have to worry about spending too much or choose a product that might be cost friendly but lose out on quality. Go out and have fun. Now you can use the extra money to grab a bottle of champagne and get together with your girls before your night out. Nothing is better than spending hours getting ready with your girls, blasting music and getting beautified.
