Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I wanted to do something that I have wanted to do for a while. I have been preparing for this for a little over a month and I am super excited to finally be able to share it with you. In this post I am going to share all of the products I think are great for someone just starting out in makeup. These are all affordable products that I personally love and highly recommend. At the end of this post is a giveaway, so make sure you read all the way to the end so you can read more about that.
Wet n’ Wild Photo Focus Foundation
I chose this as the foundation because it is only $5 and I think it works for most skin types. I have super dry skin and it looks great on me and I know people with super oily skin who also love it. The packaging is great for beginners as well.
Makeup Revolution Concealers.
One of the reasons that I chose this concealer is because they have a more matte version and a more hydrating version. Both are really great, it just depends on your preference. They are also affordable and full coverage.
ColourPop No Filter Pressed Powder.
With dry skin I have to be really careful with powders which is why I love this one. Even on dry skin it’s super smooth and never looks too heavy. But it’s also great for oily skin because it does lock everything in place.
Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder.
Loose powders are a whole different ball game. They can be too much or not enough. But this powder is incredible. It never looks too cakey or dry, but it really sets everything down and leaves my skin looking flawless.
Jaclyn Hill Morphe Palette.
I love this palette because it comes with so many shades and you can create so many different looks. You can create more natural and everyday looks, but there are also colors that you can experiment with.
L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.
Once I tried this mascara I knew it was a game-changer. And now I can’t live without it. I have really light and thin lashes, so this mascara is a must have. It leaves my lashes looking really full which is what I need.
Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer And Blush.
I talk about these all the time, but they are so amazing. There are so many shades to choose from and they are all incredible. And I have had mine for almost a year and I still have plenty of product left!
ColourPop Pressed Highlighter.
I love this highlighter for so many reasons. It is more subtle so you can have a more natural glow or you can build it up for a more intense glow. It is super affordable and it comes with so much product.
E.L.F. Brow Pencil.
I love this for my brows because it is so affordable and lasts a long time. It is also super easy to use and I have no problems with making it work for my brows. So it’s the only brow product I use.
Wet n’ Wild Gel Lip Liner.
I have honestly never tried a better lip liner and I have tried several. These are retractable so you don’t have to sharpen them. They are gel so they glide on your lips without pulling or tugging. And they are super affordable.
I love ColourPop’s lipsticks because they have so many incredible shades and they aren’t as drying as other lipsticks that I have tried. They last on the lips and I love the formula. These are also super affordable.
So now it’s time for the giveaway. I am going to give all of these products to one lucky winner.
