What makeup items are you more likely to splurge on?
This is such an excellent question and one that I get asked a lot! I’ve always been a firm believer that makeup doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but there are a few items I do splurge on. Could I use a cheaper alternative? Yes, but I find that sometimes these products give me better results and they last longer on me.
Here are a few items that I splurge on:
I have several drug store foundations that I use on a day to day basis, but there are those certain foundations that just give you a perfect complexion or have added ingredients or benefits that make you feel extra special. I have a difficult complexion to perfect at times. I have very fair skin, but I also have a lot of redness. On top of that, my actual skin has large pores and can sometimes be oily/combo. So for those special times when I am really concentrating on my actual skin and want it to look extra amazing, I use my Chanel Perfection Lumiere Foundation.

Eye Shadow Primer
I have incredibly oily eyelids. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like. If I don’t use a good eyeshadow primer, my eye makeup doesn’t last. I have tried several brands and I’ve found that my absolute favorite is the Too Faced Shadow Insurance. It lasts and my eye makeup stays put for most of the day. I have tried several drug store primers, but they just don’t work for me.

Lastly, if you don’t have good tools to apply your makeup, you won’t get the best makeup look that is possible. I find that great makeup brushes are so important. I have splurged on many of these because they give me a look that I sometimes can’t get with cheaper brushes. The hairs that are in the brushes are very important. I’ve found that the better quality brushes last longer and don’t shed and leave hairs all over my face. I have used several more inexpensive brushes that do work, but there are some brushes that just can’t compare. I love my Sigma Beauty Mr. Bunny Essential Kit.

Makeup brushes is a GENIUS answer! I didn’t even think of it and I have a set of Sigma brushes I spent a pretty penny on (it’s the set you have pictured above)!
Mandy McCullough says
I need to invest in a better set of makeup brushes, and I’ve definitely been lusting after a set from Sigma!

I love how the majority of us all said foundation…I’ve never tried the Chanel foundation but I bet it is awesome!
Dawn Levy says
It sounds like we have similar skin. I also have oily skin and a lot of redness so I’ll have to try that Chanel foundation.
