Wanna look a million bucks without spending that much? Check out the following list to see what beauty products you can splurge and save on!
* Base products (Foundation/Concealer/Powder)
Since you do need a perfect match to achieve a flawless complexion, you are better off heading to a department store where you can try out different colors and formulas. Brands like Prescriptives even offer custom blending to help customers find their perfect match.
* Makeup Brushes
We all know the importance of brushes when it comes to makeup application. High-end brushes like those from Shu Uemura and MAC are usually made from denser, softer hair and will last longer so they are definitely worth the investment.
Mascaras need to be replaced every 3 months, so why splurge when you can get one for a few bucks at the drugstore?
When it comes to eyeshadows, trends come and go all the time. You are better off experimenting with different colors and textures with drugstore and mid-end brands. NYX, Milani and MAC all make eyeshadows in a variety of colors with decent pigmentation.
Just like eyeshadows, you can find decent blushes from drugstore and mid-end brands like Milani and MAC.
* Lipstick/Lip gloss
From my personal experience, the biggest difference between high-end and drugstore lip products is their packaging. The texture and color are pretty much the same.
* Nail Polish
Nail polishes have a short shelf life plus brands like OPI and CND offer the same if not better, quality than luxury brands like Chanel.
