From high end to affordable, many choices available for makeup

Doing your makeup for the first time can be difficult like trying to figure out what makeup products you need, what works best for your skin and the list goes on. Though everyone does their makeup differently, I will be sharing the way I do it to give you some insight. 



It’s always good to add moisturizer to your face before adding any makeup on. It helps to hydrate your face and helps create a flat surface for your foundation and concealer to have a flawless finish. I use Nivea as a moisturizer. It’s what helps best for my face.

An amazing base to cover any imperfections that you don’t want anyone to see. There are so many different types  of foundation that you can find; for example, if you want a lightweight foundation that looks like you don’t have makeup on, I recommend the Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Blurring Skin Tint. It gives you a nice glowy natural looking foundation. Now if you’re going for a full coverage foundation, the Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless foundation is one of the best. It is a little bit on the pricey side, but it works amazingly. If you wanna be on a budget, the Loreal Infallible 24 hour wear foundation works so well on your skin and it gives you that full coverage that you want.

Do you want to cover your heavy eyebags or cover any pimples that you don’t want anyone to see, or do you just want to brighten your undereyes to give you that extra pop? There are so many counselors in both drugstores and high end outlets. One of my favorite drugstore concealers is for sure the Elf Camo Concealer. It is so full of coverage. It covers everything and leaves a nice finish to your eyes and face. It is just the best of the best. The best concealer for high end would be the Kosas concealer. It is a medium to full coverage concealer that blends so nicely to the skin.

Retails: Elf Camo Concealer $5/$7

Kosas Concealer $28

Setting Powder: 

A nice setting powder to set your face would be the Laura Mercier—literally top tier best powder to ever hit the market. It is on the pricey side, but it’s so worth your money. A good drugstore setting powder would be Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder. It works soooo good. I’m on my third one.

Retails: Laura Mercier Translucent Powder $40

Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder $ 5.72 


So many contours have hit the beauty market such as rare beauty, which is Selena Gomez’s  brand or Makeup by Mario have been the top ones that a lot of people enjoy, and we also can’t forget Fenty Beauty. Most of these brands are pretty high end, but there are so many good drugstore contours that you can buy.  L.A. Girl Pro Conceal HD Concealer is one of the best ones out there. It is used for concealer, but it can still be used as contour, and it just works wonders.

My favorite part of my makeup is definitely my blush routine. Blush is my all time favorite product to use on my face. The Rare Beauty blushes are the most pigmented light weight best blushes that are trending right now. A little goes a long way when applying the Rare Beauty blushes. Again, if you’re on a budget, the best drugstore blush will be the Milani Baked Blush, very pigmented and can also be used as a highlighter on the face.

Retails: Rare Beauty Blush $20

Milani Baked Blush $10.99 


I can never go anywhere without my mascara. One of my favorite mascaras I use is made in Mexico and I think it is one of the best mascaras ever to exist and my go to. It just works so well for my eyelashes. There are many good mascaras out there that are good and affordable. 

Retails: Mascara from Mexico $10

Other affordable mascaras $5- $20


Makeup can be affordable or a little expensive. This just shows that there are so many good drugstore products that you can use in your makeup routine. You really don’t have to have the best of the best, but if you are wanting to have the best of the best, go for it. There are so many dupes in the makeup industry that you can find that work the same as high quality products. Makeup is art, but on your face. It is a great way to express yourself and be who you are.
