High End Makeup You Need!
These are products that I don't believe are replaceable with dupes. I would repurchase these in a heartbeat when and if I run out of them. These products are long-lasting, high quality, and there's something for everyone. I picked out the most natural, wearable, practical, high end products that I absolutely love and would recommend to anyone. If had all these products and a foundation that worked best for you, you would have the most flawless everyday look. These products all get a 10/10 from me.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes These are, hands down, my favorite blushes. Like #1 compared to the hundreds of blushes I own. They promise to last 12 hours long, and Tarte can sure keep a promise. This blush lasts all through school, and on to my night shift at the restaurant. It never looks patchy and always goes on smoothly and pigmented. These are about $26 which is pretty pricey for a blush, but I do believe you get your moneys worth with these. Just pick out your right color and I guarantee it will become your most reached for blush.
Benefit Benetint This is just one of those makeup staples. When you're going for a "no makeup" makeup look, when you need a color base for your lips or cheeks, or when you just want some natural color so you can focus on other parts of your face instead. You can use the Benetint on your cheeks and lips and it's also buildable. My favorite way to use this product is before my very early morning shifts at work when I don't want to wear a full face of makeup, but I just want to put a little bit of color back into my face. This lasts all day. It's one of the best tints out there. This goes for $30.
MAC Pigment in Vanilla This pigment is so important to own in your makeup collection. Not only does it last literally a life time, but you can use it with every step in your makeup routine. Not that you should, but just to show you how versatile this project is :) You can mix it in with your foundation to make it less matte or give you a natural glow from within, you can use it as a highlight or over your blush to make your blush appear more shimmery, you can use it as an eyeshadow, you can use it mixed with a lipgloss or on top of a lipstick to change the appearance, and you can even mix it with nail polish to get a different finish. My favorite way to use this is as a highlight, it is SO stunning. This costs $21.
Makeup Forever Aqua Cream #13 This can be worn as a base or on it's own. It's a beautiful shade that will complete any natural makeup look and it lasts all day long. It's one of the easiest ways to look a bit more polished and like you had those extra minutes in the morning to do an eye makeup look. I use a Real Techniques eyeshadow brush with this products and it takes 5 seconds to swipe to on and call it a day. I believe this is waterproof too, but i haven't been able to test that out yet. It's a beautiful everyday shade that everyone should own. These are also comparable to MAC Paint Pots or the Maybelline Color Tattoos, but these are much smoother than both of those. These are $23.
Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette This is such a must have for anyone. It has all the matte neutral shades you'd need, a matte black, and a light shimmer highlight. It's small, compact, and I use it with almost every eye look I do. You can mix shades to fill in your eyebrows even. These are so pigmented, smooth, and you can even use the Makeup Forever Aqua Creme shadow as a base for these shadows. This palette is $29
Clinique High Impact Mascara If your eyes are easily irritated, then this is a must have for you. For years my eyes would irritate me and I had no idea why. I had several different mascaras I would wear on different occasions so I figured it couldn't be that. I just assumed it was me that was the problem and sucked it up. Then one day my mom told me to use this mascara and it just opened up a whole new world to me. My eyes never irritated me again! But not only is this nonirritating, but it gives you the most natural, thick, long lashes ever. It also never flakes and isn't drying at all. I'd almost call it moisturizing. I almost refuse to wear another mascara. If you're looking for drama, this mascara is also buildable and won't clump. I just love this guy. The price of this is $16.50
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow Pomade This just changed everything for my eyebrows. It lasts all day, and this product will probably last all my life. You only need the tiniest bit; a little goes a long way. Be gentle with this product because it is extremely pigmented. Practice on yourself a few times because you can get a heavy hand with this guy. But I think this is the best product out there for eyebrows. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone. This is $18.
