I know some of my amigas were asking me what they should get to start off with makeup. So I figured I’d just list some essentials you need to get at sephora or even drugstores, that won’t break you out or break the bank too hard.
1. Liquid Foundation (only if you feel like you need extra coverage, otherwise skip to 2)
I personally haven’t found a drugstore foundation that I like that works well on my skin. However I heard that the Revlon Colorstay is good (probably around 12 dollars). The cheapest you can get at sephora that I know of, and really like cause the company is formulated for your skin type, is the clinique foundations($22). I like the superbalanced formula, but they have a bunch, like one for acne and stuff.
2. Powder Foundation (I like to put this on top of the liquid foundation because it keeps it on longer, lessens shine, and also adds a little more coverage. I need a lot of coverage. Lol.).
I’ve heard that the physicians formula one is good, the mosaic pressed powder or something, i haven’t used it, or anything by neutrogena should be good. I like the mac studio fix powder plus foundation ($26.50). They have a bunch of different powders you can use tho, that have less coverage if you just need it for oil absorption or whatever. The sephora line is super good for cheaper powders.
Personally, I prefer liquid eyeliner. I like the sephora line one($10) because it’s brush is thin and it’s not too expensive. For stick eyeliners, i like the mac eyekohl($14.50) in smolder, cuz it’s really black and sticks to my waterline well and smudges nice to give a super cute smokey look. It stays on ALL day. Seriously.
I don’t like to splurge on mascara. You have to change it often and the drugstore ones are as good if not better. I like the the L’oreal Volume Million lashes (probably around $9).
So that’s it for now. These are the things that you can use on an everyday basis if you’re just starting off. This is basically what I do on an everyday basis if I’m in a hurry, except I put on mac’s melba blush usually as well.
I think I’m gonna do more posts like this, and might even start posting videos. If you have like ideas for me to try for a post or anything just let me know. I feel like this can be a lot of fun. Sorry if this is not relevant to you at all. <3 yall!!!!!
