Out of everything that I own, I will give you my top makeup products that I use daily or would recommend to anyone. I will try to give an alternative to some of the pricer products.
I do not have a number for the top products but I will start with the first one:
1. MAC Fix +- I have added this to my top makeup products pretty recently. When I first got it I was not sure what was the hype about this product. I love the scent, it feels nice on my skin, and it does hydrate, but what was so awesome about this product? It was only when I did not use it that often that I realized how effective it is in my makeup routine. First, I have dry/combination skin and I found out that if I spray this on my face and then let the dry, as well as spray once on my brush, most of the time my foundation will look even and hydrated instead of flakey and dry like it can be at times. This product also has many uses. I spray it in my damp hair after a shower and it helps with the frizz. You can spray it on an eye shadow brush and have pure color on your eyes. It is really a nice product to have. You do not need it, however it makes life easier. -$20 for 3.4 fl oz.
Both are great and both give great results. The MAC on is pricey, a little bit better quality and has less product. mark. which is less money and just as good. You can get the Mac fix + here(or any MAC counter) and the mark. one here at my store. Check both out!
A foundation that I would suggest that is cheaper would be Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid foundation. I have not been using a drugstore brand foundation in a while, besides my Neutrogena one. This foundation is nice, however I have some negatives about it. I like it because after is sets on your skin, it gives a nice glow, sometimes it seems too much, but it can look very nice. It smells good and is easy to apply. However, it feels a bit too runny for my taste and feels greasy for the first ten minutes it is on my face. If I touch my face, it feels a bit greasy, even when it sets. Another thing it does not last too long and falls off the face after a few hrs. Although these are what I do not like about it, a nice powder can fix the greasy problem a bit. So, I do wear this time to time when I feel like and would recommend it to anyone. Just be care when taking it out because it is VERY runny and it can be a little greasy. This foundation is a bit more obvious that it is on. You can find it at any drugstore for about $11 for 1 fl oz.
I own both and have experienced them. I would prefer the Makeup Forever one, but obviously it is a lot, but it lasts a long time. The Neutrogena is nice and does do a good job, it just does not last as long. You can pick a foundation that is good enough for now, or a foundation that is something that will last a long time.
An alternative to this would be mark. bronze pro bronzing powder. This is a very nice bronzer which is only half the price as the benefit. Either one is great! $10 here.
An alternative to this would be Hard Candy's face primer. It is not as effective, but it is cheap and is good for now, until you want something better. It goes on easily, and it does not feel greasy. I use it now, until I get the Benefit one. :) It is under $10 at any drugstore.
An alternative for liners would be covergirl liners. They are easy to use and are smooth. They do not last as long, but the color is great! $5-$6 each at any drugstore.
here! There are different things in each new one that comes out.
Alternative? I have used one other eye primer and it is Hard Candy. But I would not recommend it to anyone because I feel it creases too much and does not really make your shadow last long. Anyone have a suggestion for a cheap eye primer?
I may add a few more things to add on this list, so check this post again soon. :) Tell me your favorite product that you would recommend.
