Makeup is a girl’s best friend. It can help you express your creativity, try new looks and boost your self-esteem. Having the right makeup is essential to creating the perfect look. This list is full of products that you’ll want to buy right away.
1. Too Faced Born This Way Foundation
This is an amazing full coverage foundation that will be sure to last you all day. It’s perfect for covering any flaws without feeling too heavy on your skin. It is described as being medium to full coverage, but the coverage is definitely buildable. If using this product, you can also skip concealer because it has such great coverage. Having a good foundation is a must for any makeup look that you want to create. It will blur out pores, fine lines, redness and any acne you might have. For girls that struggle with their skin, this product will be great for minimizing the appearance of any imperfections you might have. This product will last you a long time and you will get your moneys worth it because a little will go a long way. It can be found at Ulta for $39.
2. BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter
I have tried many highlighters, but this will always be my favorite. This highlighter provides a beautiful and long-lasting glow to your skin. You only need a tiny bit of product, but it will leave your skin glowing and radiant all day long. I love the Champagne Pop shade, but this line offers so many different shades to choose from. You are guaranteed to find the perfect highlighter for your complexion. This product works best when applied with a fan brush to your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and the inner corners of your eyes. This gives you a beautiful sun-kissed and healthy glow. The smaller size of this highlighter is $22 and the larger size is $38 on Nordstrom.com
3. Kat Von D Shade & Light Palette
This is a great investment because it includes so many great products all in one convenient palette. This is the only palette you’ll need in order to do any contouring and highlighting. It includes three highlighter and three contouring colors, so you are sure to find the perfect one for your skin tone. I love this palette because all the shades are matte, which makes them easy to apply and blend. These powders are buildable, which is guaranteed to give you the look you want. The palette is also refillable, so you can easily replace the shades that you use more often. This palette can be found at Sephora for $49.
4. FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
This is an amazing lip gloss at a reasonable price for a high-end product. Rihanna’s FENTY line offers a variety of great products, but this lip gloss is one of my favorites. It has a great shiny, but not sticky formula. It is also long lasting, so you don’t need to constantly reapply. It also has the best peach-vanilla scent, which is just sweet enough. This lip gloss comes in 3 different shades to fit with your favorite makeup looks. My favorite is the Fenty Glow, which is a sparkly, nude shade that goes with every look. There is also both a shimmering pink and shimmering pearl option as well. These glosses retail at $18 and can be found at any Sephora that carries the FENTY brand.
5. Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Lengthening and Volumizing Mascara
Mascara might just be one of my favorite makeup products, which makes this product a definite must have. I’ve also recommended it to several of my friends, who all end up loving it as well. This mascara has an amazing wand that is designed to separate each individual lash. This helps you to easily avoid the dreaded look of clumpy mascara that is nearly impossible to fix. The before and afters of putting this mascara on are amazing. It completely seperates, lengthens and volumizes each of your lashes giving you the look of having fake lashes on. I can’t recommend this mascara enough. It also comes in mini sizes, so you can try it out before committing to buying a larger size. The mini is $15 and the larger size is $25 at Sephora.
6. HUDA BEAUTY Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette
The name for this product could not be anymore accurate. This has been the only eyeshadow palette I have been reaching for recently. I find that it has every color I need to create a variety of eye looks. It is a smaller 9 shade palette, but the shades are different enough that the possibilities are endless. It offers both matte and shimmery looks as well, which makes it easy to create an everyday or a night out look. This product is great if you want a minimal amount of makeup products because this offers so many colors in just one palette. I also love that this palette comes in 3 different varieties, which is somewhat rare for palettes. There are Nude Light, Nude Medium and Nude Rich options. This product was created to be flattering on any skin tone and the varieties in shades ensure this. I love the Nude Medium palette because it is so versatile and I think it’s the perfect in-between of all three varieties. All of these Nude Obsessions Eyeshadow Palettes retail for $29 at Sephora.
