Makeup how I love thee....

I have loved makeup ever since I was old enough to wear it, but let's face it makeup is expensive. If I won the lottery I would most likely be buying MAC Cosmetics, Dior, and NARS, but I'm on a budget, so I need to get creative. 

I have found some inexpensive sites that sell some great makeup so I thought I would share some of my favorite products and sites!

e.l.f. Cosmetics (e.l.f stands for eyes, lips, and face) offers makeup and tools with prices that are easy on the bank account. 

Here are some of my favorites from e.l.f.

e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer

I have tried a few primers and found that e.l.f.'s $6.00 primer is just as good and so much cheaper!

Every girl who has ever really been into makeup knows that quality brushes are essential to getting the right look. The problem with this, is that most brushes (either individual or sets) are rather pricey. e.l.f. has put out great quality brushes for spectacular prices. e.l.f. offers brush sets in prices ranging from $5.00 and up to $30.00 (depending on the size of the set). Individual brushes cost anywhere from $1.00 to $8.00. I have purchased many of the $1.00 brushes and LOVE them!

While e.l.f Cosmetics, may never be MAC, their makeup still offers amazing quality. You can buy items individually from e.l.f, but some of my favorite purchases have been sets, since most times they include everything I need for a particular look. My most recent set purchase was the e.l.f. Beauty Book Eye Set in Smoky. The set comes with 6 Eye-shadows  1 Eyelid Primer, 1 Eyeliner Pencil, 1 Built-in Mirror, and 1 Dual Ended Applicator. The set also gives you directions on how to achieve the certain looks with the eye-shadows provided. All this for $5.00, not a bad buy at all!

e.l.f. is a great place to pick up essentials. You can find them in some stores, such as Target, but their entire collection is available online. e.l.f. always has specials running, so if you buy online don't forget to search for coupon codes before completing your purchase.

Currently if you use the coupon code loveit you can get 50% off their favorites on orders of $20 or more. e.l.f.'s favorites can be found here.

******************************************************** is a great source for inexpensive makeup, if you are willing to do some searching. I have found many items from Maybelline and L'Oreal at a fraction of their retail prices.

Some of my faves include:

Maybelline New York Colorsensational Lip Gloss . Normally $6.49, on Amazon it's available for $2.89 with FREE shipping.

L'Oreal Paris HiP Color Presso, is normally $13.00, but on Amazon I got it in Classy for $3.71 with FREE shipping.

L'Oreal Paris True Match Naturale All-Over Mineral  is normally $15.95, but I got it in Honey Glow for $3.90.

There are many more deals out there. If you want more links or suggestions let me know by leaving a comment!
