In my dream world, my bathroom resembles an Ulta or Sephora showroom. Can you imagine aisles of beautiful products at your fingertips day after day? Sigh. Regularly wearing makeup is an expensive habit… but it doesn’t have to be. Here are a few of my budget-friendly favorites:
L’Oreal Studio Secrets Professional Secret No. 1 Magic Perfecting Base: LOVE. I randomly found this in a cosmetics clearance bin at Kroger- it covers pores and evens complexion and might be my favorite primer.
Maybelline Falsies Mascara: I recommend it all the time. It doesn’t clump and elongates every lash. Other mascaras come and go, but this one has a permanent place in my makeup bag.
Cover Girl Eye Enhancers 3 Kit Shadows (Shimmering Sands): At $4.99, you can’t beat it (includes shades for lid, contour, and highlight).
Maybelline Color Sensation Lip Color (Red Revival): My preferred red. This deep shade is flattering on all skin tones and for all hair colors. If you want to experiment with a bold lip, Red Revival is a great place to start.
All products can be purchased at your local Walmart, Kroger, Walgreens, CVS, etc. I prefer buying them at Ulta because they consistently offer incentives and discounts. Might as well stock up!
