anonymous asked:

what products would you recommend for beginners when buying high end products? sorry I'm sure you have answered this many times before..

Some high-end must haves for people who are just starting off with makeup:
• urban decay beauty balm
fits any skin type, very sheer to no coverage, and smooths out the skin
• makeup forever hd foundation
if you’re looking for a foundation that has more coverage. this has a huge shade selection too 
• nars radiant creamy concealer
great coverage, thick and creamy but lightweight at the same time.
• mac mineralize skinfinish natural
a natural looking powder that can also give a sheer coverage by itself
• hourglass ambient lighting blush
subtle and glowy but gives a natural flush of color to the cheeks
• becca pressed shimmering skin perfector
best highlighter ever in my opinion. gives a natural but AMAZING glow to your face
• anastasia brow wiz
easy to use, and has a fine tip so you have more precision
• urban decay primer potion
not too sticky or too dry, a great base for eyeshadows
• too faced chocolate bar palette
has the best combination of matte/shimmer/glitter and neutral/colorful eyeshadows. its great if you want to branch out with the eyeshadow shades you’re wearing
• kat von d tattoo liquid liner
lasts all day and the brush is so precise and thin so it’s easier to use
• ysl glossy stain
stays put for SO long, it’s a glossy finish so it’s harder to make mistakes (unlike super opaque matte liquid lipsticks). you don’t need a lip liner for this either but it gives your lips the prettiest look

PRODUCTS I’VE HIT PAN ON

I picked out five of my favorite products that I’ve hit major pan on to share with you guys.

+ The first is my most used Urban Decay eyeshadow in “Sin”. I purchased the single shadow a while ago when I ran out of the one in my Naked palette. It’s such a beautiful highlight / all over the lid shade, it lights up your eyes and makes you look much more awake.

+ Next is my most used blush, MAC’s “Well Dressed”. I’ve always been a sucker for baby pink but this shade has to be one of my favorites. I find that “Well Dressed” looks super natural, which I love.

+ Next is another MAC product, their Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I love this powder because it sets make-up while giving a little extra coverage without being overly powdery.

+ The next product is the Victoria’s Secret Radiant Face Trio in “Head Turner” which has unfortunately been discontinued. Unlike most highlighters, this contains three different shades: a baby pink, light bronze, and light gold which combine to give off a beautiful warm glow.

+ Lastly is the Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I’ve probably gone through at least five of these because they’re inexpensive and do a great job of setting and mattifying foundation.

Hey love! What are the best Foundations/Powders? that don't make you look powdery?

Hi :)

Try foundations like

  • Loreal Magic Lumi
  • Lancome Tient Miracle
  • Neutrogena Healthy Skin
  • Garnier BB Cream for Oily/Combination Skin (has medium to full coverage)
  • Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation

Try powders like

  • MAC Mineralized Skinfinish Natural
  • Benefit Hello Flawless
  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Finishing Powder (either their loose or pressed version)
  • Physicians Formula Nude Wear Glow Powder or their Youthful Wear Boosting Spotless Powder
  • Maybelline Fit Me Powder

You might also want to try translucent powders! I love translucent powders because they set my foundation so it lasts all day but never looks cakey or heavy because it’s so finely milled and weightless. The only down side would be it provides no extra coverage since it is a clear/colorless powder. Try translucent powders like Makeup Forever HD Powder, NYX HD Powder, Laura Mericer Translucent Loose Setting Powder or NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder.
