Beauty at any cost If foundation is your passion, splurge on the good stuff.If cover up is not your thing but lip color is, you might be able to justify department store lipstick at twenty dollars a tube. Do you love using brushes?Can you get away with a less expensive brush or do you absolutely need a double wrapped, sable brush for cheek color at around $50? For myself foundation and concealer have always been a priority.The drug store variety have never been flattering on my olive skin tone.I go for higher end tinted moisturizers with spf 15 which is three products in one for around $40.This lasts me about a year. Finer face powders cost more, but are much less noticeable than their cheaper counterparts.A tub of Cheap Bridesmaid Dresses UK double milled translucent power for $40 dollars last me about two years!You need less of it for it to do its job so you save money in the end. Color for me is not a big deal because i like to wear very light colors on lips, eyes and cheeks. Some of the top make up artists in the world use drugstore make up on their photo shoots. My top picks for drugstore cosmetics are wet n" wild, prestige and rimmel. Now we talked about any price.Generally the three i just mentioned are all under six dollars. Wet n" wild lip pencil 666 is a ninetynine cent must have for your make up kit.You can use it as a liner or smear it all around your lips to have the rosy bitten lip look.666 is the exact, EXACT same color of a high end lip pencil which will go unnamed and cost about twenty five dollars less! Wet n" wild also has great liquid liners for a more dramatic effect.The darker eye shadows blend very easily. Rimmel and prestige have great lip glosses in colors similar to more expensive products.I need to buy two tubes of lip gloss to last me a month or so!They don"t call me the"Lip gloss queen"For nothing!Like i said color is not important to me but texture is. My favorite drugstore eyeliner is prestige automatic waterproof eyeliner.A boy i know who likes to wear make up told me about it and it works great.If you like black or brown they have rich pigments and they may not be entirely waterproof, but they do stay on longer without giving you raccoon eyes. As for mascara that is debatable. Some women have sworn and stood by department store formulas because they flake less.For others mascara is not a big deal because they have longer fuller lashes and can use less of the flaky stuff.Right now i"m loving the new rubberized mascara wands.Try them.They are not bad for being Quinceanera Dresses UK five to eight dollars. My favorite for a long time was lancome magnificils but it just got to costing way too much.$22 was not worth it for mascara that I was going to toss in three to five months.Now i only buy it if i know i am doing a photo shoot, to wear for myself when i am photographed or filmed or recommend that it is something you wear only on a special occasion.Maybe to your wedding, a fancy company or charity dinner or an oh so important date or even a job interview or presentation. Another option in the eyelash department is to tint your lashes.You can buy a tube of tint for under $10 and do it yourself or have it professionally done at a salon which will cost you much more.I do find with the do it yourself method the first day or so you will wake up with black(Or brown)Circles under your eyes until it starts to wear off.That can easily be wiped off with a baby wipe. Baby wipes are all purpose as every mother knows.Don"t worry about using them on your face every now and then.If you use them everyday they might be harsh for your skin but they work well to take off heavy make and you can also put eye make up remover on them and reuse it. Eye make up remover is nothing more than mineral oil and water.So if you make it yourself or spend five to 30 dollars that is entirely up to you.I"m in between because i love black eyeliner and go with an 8oz.Bottle of the body shop chamomile gentle eye make up remover for around fourteen dollars. As for brushes.Remember that $50 sable job i mentioned earlier?A cheaper animal is goat and works just as well.You will not see many goat brushes at nordstrom but you will find them at your local art supply store.My brush sets are a mix of soft, natural fiber bristles mainly ones that were given to me, lucky me, and brushes that i bought at sally beauty supply and the art store.They all work you just have to find a brush that is going to do the Prom Dresses UK Sale best job for you and the look you want to achieve. You can also use baby wipes to clean your brushes in between use and what is recommended for actually washing them is baby shampoo.Expensive brush cleaners are just that, expensive.
