Saving $$$ on Make up!

Makeup can be really expensive. I have made a lot of mistakes on spending too much money when I could of found it in another brand for way cheap. I have learned that it doesn't have to be expensive! There are a lot of different brands out there that aren't as expensive and work just as good. So in this post today we'll talk all about how to save some money and still get some really good products.Yay! Let the saving begin!

My all time favorite Blush brand right now is called La Femme. 

You can buy this 12 color palette here
or you can get them individually at either here or here for about $3 each! 
My favorite colors are
Coral Spice (coral with pink undertones)
Mandarin Red (darker shimmery coral pink)
Terracotta (peachy pink with golden shimmer)
Peach Sparkle (Peach with a golden shimmer)

Another low priced Blush is the Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush for about $4-$5

Next, is Bronzer... here are some that I really like.

This is the NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder you can get it for about $2!

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Bronzer for about $12

Or you can get the NYX Cosmetics Bronzer Powder for $15

and here's a bronzer, a little on the pricey side... Baked Bronzer from Urban Decay for $28

Okay now onto Eyeshadow Primers...these are a must if you really want the eyeshadow to pop!

The Cheapest Primer I have found is the L'Oreal Paris De-Crease Eye Shadow Base for about $8

MAC Prep + Prime Pots $16.50

This Too Faced Shadow Insurance is $18

I use the Urban Decay Primer Potion for $18 or for this Professional one $29...yikes, expensive


First of all, to free up some room in your make up collection, instead of having 17 trillion eyeshadow palettes building up and taking up so much space there is a way to cut down on that. You can de-pot your shadow's and most of them are magnetic on the bottom and then you can throw them in one of these.....

ZPalette $20

Look how many different sizes and shapes of eyeshadow you can fit in there!

Some of my favorite brands of eyeshadow's that are cheap...

Yaby Cosmetics are super expensive if you buy it in the pre-made palette but you can purchase refills individually for about $3. They're about the size of a dime but very pigmented and colorful.

La Femme Eyeshadows for about $3 each

Ben Nye Eyeshadows for about $5-$6 each

MUD (Makeup Designory) Eyeshadow Refill $9.99

These ones are on the expensive side, I will forever love them. However the cheaper eyeshadow's work just as good!!

MAC refills $11 each

Sugarpill $12

Urban Decay $17

And that's all for our very first Make up Deal post!!!!!! As I find more products that are cheap and awesome I will post more!! What kind of make up would you be interested in seeing at a cheaper price? 

Hope this will help with saving $$$!!
