Hey :) What are some good high end products i should invest in and last quite a long time? thank you :) xx
Personally I think you should save on eyeliners, mascaras, lip gloss, lipstick and spend a little more on base products like foundation, powder, primer and skin care. If your skin looks good anything else will look pretty good!
A few products I think you should invest in are
An every day blush. The drugstore blush department is really slacking to me so I would suggest getting one or two blushes from MAC or Sephora that you can use every day like a light pink or coral because blushes will last you years! I have some MAC blushes I use nearly every day for the last two years and they’re still going strong.
A long wearing foundation. Try spending a little more on foundations for days when you need to look nice all day long. You probably won’t use this foundation for an every day use and thats why it’ll last you for a long time. Use it on days when youre going on an adventure and will be out all day, for a long day of classes, a special event. Just something where you don’t want to have to worry about your makeup. I’d suggest Estee Lauder Double Wear cause the staying power is insane and a little goes a long way!
A matte bronzer. Bronzers will generally last a long time because they come with so much product. The drugstore doesn’t have as large as a selection of matte bronzers like Sephora so this is why I suggest spending a little more on one. Matte bronzers are great for contouring, all over bronzing and even using an eyeshadow for blending out shadow. Matte bronzers are great for all seasons and all skin types.
A flat top foundation brush. Brushes generally last years if you take proper care of them and typically you’d apply foundation every day so investing in a brush so your foundation will look flawless is a good idea! Try a brush like the Sigma F80, great for all types of foundation and for all skin types.
Some other products I think are generally worth the price because they are fabulous are
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
MAC Pro Longwear Concealer
MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural (setting powder)
Tarte Amazonian Clay Smooth Operator Translucent Powder (makes your makeup last forever and look flawless)
Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer (great for all skin types)
