Since Beauty Influencers took over the beauty industry, more and more brands are emerging everyday with affordable tools and products!

Instead of spending $10-20 on a drugstore eyeshadow palette, we would recommend saving a bit more for a pro palette with warm shades. This is something you will reach for everyday and you'll get your money's worth. It might seem like an investment at first glance,  but you're saving money in the long run due to it's versatility (hello, neutral and glam looks), mixed formulas (shimmer and mattes - why choose just one?), these kind of palettes will last you years!!!

If you're okay with online shopping, there's tons of websites you can try! Morphe is insanely popular for their large pro palettes and high quality brushes BH Cosmetics has a bit of everything and right now you can get 33% OFF SITEWIDE + Free EXCLUSIVE Palette!  Another newer brand is Juvia's Place, check out their popular eyeshadow palette and gel liner bundle which is crazy cheap!

For foundation, check out L'Oreal True Match for everyday wearable makeup and Revlon Colorstay is a cult fave for their full coverage formula - more suitable for special occassions.

If you're looking to 'glow to the gods' checkout this affordable highlighter paletteMakeup Revolution is also a drugstore brand and their $6 vivid baked highlighters are always out of stock, thanks Khloe Kardashian!

Physician's Formula has this shimmer brick palette which is basically a dupe of the high end Bobbi Brown palette. This is a great for multi-purposing product and can be used as eyeshadow, highlighter, bronzer, anything you want!

Sleek Makeup is another online brand that offers high quality makeup at at affordable price tag. Check out their eyeliner pots for a highly pigmented and creamy formula. L'Oreal has these budge proof eyeliner pencils - that have an incredibly pigmented glide on formula!

NYX, available at Ulta (sign up for their Beauty Rewards and get $10 off your next purchase + freebies on your bday every year!) - has some of the best products worth trying. Their cult fave jumbo eyeliner pencils are good as an eyeshadow base and will make any eyeshadow more vivid. Their eyebrow gel is great for beginners in achieving those natural yet polished brows - a little goes a long way with this stuff!

For lips, we prefer custom color because why not? Whether you are using drugstore or high end, we all strive for long lasting lipcolor and matte is the way to go, especially for daytime.
