We have all had that experience when we go to the makeup counter, and we try EVERYTHING as we chat with the makeup techs. It’s fun to get new makeup, but staying on budget is important. Here are a few tips on how to get the most fun bang for your buck!
1) Foundation: This product goes over pretty much all the skin on your face, so make sure it’s something good. Do a test patch to make sure you don’t have an allergic reaction to the ingredients, and get one that is right for your skin type.
2) Eye shadow: When you buy a good eye shadow, it’s not going to cake throughout the day and it’s not going to be difficult to apply. Plus, when you buy good eye shadow, you don’t have to spend money on shadow base products.
3) Lipstick/Lip Gloss: Two features of good lipstick – staying power and texture. Don’t be afraid to try multiple types and shades to see how well they work with your skin tone and lip skin type.
4) Moisturizer: I know this falls into more of a skin care category, but because it works alongside your makeup to give you just the right look, splurge on a moisturizer that is going to keep your pores clear and that will help your skin stay supple. Get samples from different places and try them for a week. After that, then decide which one works best with your skin and your other products and go from there.
