As a budget beauty blogger, I'm not one to usually recommend a ton of high end makeup.
But these 4 products perform so well, they're definitely worth the splurge in my book.
While this foundation is pricey at $38, it is the lightest full coverage foundation I've ever worn. It truly feels weightless, but covers all discoloration with a smooth natural finish.
This brow gel helps add natural looking volume and tint to the brows with a flexible hold that lasts all day, and is water resistant. It's great to use as a last step, or on its own. Full size, it costs $24 but is also available in a mini size for $14.
I reach for this $34 powder when I need my makeup to stay in place all day, no matter what the situation. It actually makes your foundation waterproof, and helps control oil for up to 11 hours. It's perfect for beating humidity and sweat!
For $29, I think you actually get a great value here as these kits contain both a lip liner and a liquid lipstick. The liner is smooth and pigmented, creating clean lines, and the liquid lipstick is lightweight but packs intense color that lasts all day.
