In a world with unlimited funds in my bank account, I’d have more makeup and pretty things than all the Instagram influencers put together. Oddly enough, this is not my financial situation.
Right now, my Laura mercier foundation is at the edges of the pan, so I bought a similar one from body shop. I’m not 100% convinced, but it’s half price and I run yellow and haven’t found a drugstore match. The ordinary has a liquid that matches me perfectly - if you use liquid foundation daily, you should 100% buy theirs.
Eyeshadow- I’m using essence
Highlighter - essence
Bronzer - hitting pan on one that’s like 100 years old from essence
Lips- two shades from sudsatorium (not cheap but eco friendly and local. Not expensive either), a mlbb shade from nyx, and two sticky glosses from Victoria’s secret that I’m ashamed of and also love
Mascara - I’ve been using essence (princess something) and Maybelline falsies, but want a moderate priced semi eco friendly one
Eyeliner - pencils from everywhere, and I just threw out my liquid liner from nyx - I’ll rebuy or get the essence one
Lashes - I’m terrible at false lashes, but want to get better. I have a drugstore pair left, and got two boxes of 6 sets each from miniso for $3 each that will be cheaper to learn with.
I also have a contour stick from nyx that I love, but I live a pretty casual life. So it doesn’t get used often
I want a nude eyeliner for my lower waterline
And I want to know all about your favourite affordable pretty things! I was doing really well on low beauty spending… And then I bought a face oil at l’occitaine in February and new moisturizer a few weeks ago. So please keep me on track!
