I have five products in my beauty arsenal that I cannot live without. They are basics that are probably already in your makeup bag. Maybe you splurged on them or maybe you were saving savvy and scored them at a discount. Good products don’t have to come with price tag that will tempt you into living on Ramen for month after you dipped into your grocery funds for quality makeup. I am not talking about just any products. I am talking about the stuff the pros use. They are obviously the best in the business and work with different options on a daily basis. So, here are five options that makeup artists swear by and they are all under $10!
*Essie Nail Polishes, $8.00 Elle Gerstien, a Celebrity Manicurist, recommends these little beauties!
*Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid Lotion Sunblock, $9.50 – If you haven’t gotten the memo that you need sunblock on your face 365 days a year, then now is the time to start slathering it on! This clear face formula won’t clog your pores and it protects from damaging rays with an SPF 55 blocker. This double duty lotion also fights acne!
*e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing -$3 This is a combo that works together to freshen your face and add a great summer glow. This is a personal favorite of Lead Makeup Arist for e.l.f., Achelle Dunaway.
*Too Faced Lash Injection Deluxe, $9.50 – If you can part with your classic Maybelline Great Lash Mascara, try this one. The purse-sized version one of Too Faced’s best-selling extreme volumizing mascaras.
*Sonia Kashuk Lip Crayon in Pinky Nude, $7.59 at Target- This one is just one of my favorites on it’s own. The price tag makes it even better! The matte finish is a classic look and I love that it’s comfortable. Sonia Kashuk sited this as her personal favorite. Of course she isn’t just the brains behind the brand she is a well respect Celebrity Makeup Artist.
