Hi! These are some brands I’d recommend for begginers or anybody in general who wants some new products!
- LA Girls Cosmetics
From NYX I would recommend their Nude On Nude Palette($25). It’s personally one of my favorite eyeshadow/lip palettes, because the shadows are super pigmented. There are 20 shadows and 10 lip shades(I don’t really care for them) but they have matte shadows and shimmery shadows. I can use the colors without a primer and they still will stay on all day. I’d also recommend their lipsticks/matte lips, they are super pigmented and they are such a bestseller with everyone.
From E.L.F I’d recommend the tinted moisturizers and/or foundations. They run about $6 or even less, but they actually stay on your face and don’t come off throughout the day. They have a range of different types of foundations which is great for different types of skin! I’d also recommend their baked shadows and bronzers, they are super pigmented and you can use some shades as a highlight even! These run at $3.
From Milani I’d recommend any of their powders because they are awesome. They don’t cake up and they are in the prettiest packaging! I do love the face illuminators($8.49) so give those a try. And the eye primer($6.49) they have is amazing. I like it even better than the high brand primers.
From LA Girls Cosmetics I’d recommend legit everything. Their concealers($5) are absolutely amazing and thats what I use even though I have all these high brand concealers. If you want to contour check out the color espresso as that works for me. You can go darker than that too if you want. Also their glazed lip paints($4) are magical. Super super pigmented and they feel amazing on your lips.
I hope this helps you!!
P.S: you can get most of these items at Ulta/Target/CVS, not sure about LA Girls but they do sell them online!
