B//B Budget Beauty Bests

Heeeeeere we go : Beyouty Bureau Budget Beauty Bests!! Say that three times fast, geeeesh. I know it can be overwhelming to get ALL.THE.THINGS. First off, let me confirm, you do not need all the things. Secondly, let me save you some monies. I have compiled a list of my very favorite beauty products that fall into any budget, but do not sacrifice in performance or quality!!

NOTE : You WILL NOT find foundation, primer or skincare recommendations included in this list! Those are products that I cannot emphasize enough investing in. Trust me. More on that later 😘

First category is : Concealer!! No need to spend an arm and a leg to cover them dark circles. Here are my top three concealers for under $10 each 👊🏼

INNISFREE $8.99 : This cream formula blends out seamlessly, sits beautifully on the skin and dries down matte so that is LASTS through the day. I have never been more impressed with a budget friendly concealer than this one. :: MAKEUP REVOLUTION $7.00 : I use shade C2 to brighten my under eyes, but their shade range is unreal – there is a shade for absolutely everyone! :: THE SAEM : This pink brightening complex is incredible for lightweight coverage that I prefer using on no-makeup days!

CREAM CONTOUR : These add dimension to the face and blend out perfectly on the skin both with or without foundation!

MAYBELLINE FIT ME $7.99: This is actually a foundation stick, but in the shade #330, I get the perfect day time contour :: JORDANA $17: This stick is INCREDIBLE for very fair babes that have a really hard time finding a neutral contour shade. It has the perfect grey undertone to create stunning shadows on the face without looking to heavy :: SOAP & GLORY $12 : I use this other contour stick as a blush/bronzer duo (in shade Wunderbronze) and love how fresh it looks on the cheeks!

POWDER CONTOUR/BRONZER : These are each the perfect shade and are formulas that I reach for over my high end bronzers. All under $20!!

MILANI $8.99 : This is a true bronzer (has a bit of shimmer, used to bring warmth to the face) and was recommended to me by Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist. So feels obvious that this is incredible :: PHYSCIANS FORMULA $14.99 : I looooove the scent of this bronzer and that it is a creamy matte formula perfect for creating cheekbones :: NYX $5 : This is actually a blush, but the shade is SO RIGHT for contour!

BLUSH : Blush is my verrrrry favorite to purchase from the drugstore!! The colors and formula are just as good and for $2.99 they never let me down!

ESSENCE : This blush is a MUST HAVE in any makeup collection – perfect coral shade, just $2.99!! :: MILANI $7.99 : I adore the shade ‘Luminoso’, but every shade is stunning on the skin :: LOREAL TRUE MATCH $11.99: This blush doesn’t look like much, but it is a staple for every skin tone – the perfect flush of pink – shade ‘Baby Blossom’:: PHYSICIANS FORMULA $12.99 : I adore the formula of these blushes – creamy and PIGMENTED! :: COVERGIRL $8 (not pictured) : This formula is hard to find now, but if you grab it from Amazon I know you will thank me later!

HIGHLIGHTERS : These can be tricky to find at the drugstore because I find that they can be a bit powdery and add texture to the skin, but here are my favorites that always deliver glowy skin!

MAKEUP REVOLUTION $9 : I add these glow drops to my primer or moisturizer They add color and glow, while evening out my skin and adding lustre to even the most matte foundation. :: WET N’ WILD $4.99: Each shade in this range is incredible!! I have never been let down by this formula. :: ESSENSE $4.49 : Most budget friendly option is probably my most used for a subtle/natural highlight! :: SLEEK MAKEUP $14.99 : Four for the price of one, this little palette is the most wet looking of all the budget friendly options. I looooove this for a statement look!

This list evolves as I try new things, but some of these have remained the same for yeaaaaaaars. I will add products here as I discuss them and as my opinion changes – rest assured this list a beauty babes best friend!!

Do you spy something you love?

Secret Nordstrom Beauty Sale!

Juuuuuust a friendly reminder of all the things I would recommend grabbing over at the Nordstrom Beauty sale and a few looks I created with the products that I love (included in the sale, obvs 💁🏻‍♀️)!!

First up, what I filled my cart with! The things that I have been putting off buying, but have heard incredible things about, just thought were worth a shot OR already own and MUST stock up on.

FACE WIPES : I ran out of my stock pile recently, so snagged a few more of my favorite makeup removing face wipes! :: BODY LOTION : The reviews are out of this world for this lotion and it has been in my cart forever – finally pulled the trigger :: TINTED MOISTURIZER : This is the hottest item that eeeeeveryone owns but me. It was about time I figured out what all the hype was about :: SETTING POWDER : This travel set includes ALL of the best setting powders and is all I need in my life (eye brightener powder, translucent & glow!) :: SECRET CONCEALER : This was one of the first beauty items that I bought way back in the day and LOVED it. Ordered another one to see if it’s as incredible as I remember for blemishes :: BOLD BLUSH : I already own a few shades in this formula, but they are so good, the shade ‘Grapefruit’ just needed to be mine :: PORE PRIMER : I have a sample of this primer that I have been using over the past week and OMGEEEEE, I am in love. Ordered the full size & cannot WAIT! :: BLUE MASCARA : I already own a few tubes, but I have heard this is getting discontinued & I love giving it as a gift 😘 so I bought a few more :: LIP GLOSS : I am sooooo hooked on the balm in this same shade I had to grab this formula in the same shade, obvs :: BRUSH CLEANER : This cleaner is so effective and the easiest that I have used to get my brushes clean, so I stocked up on this one while it is cheaper! :: LIPSTICK : The shade ‘Bare’ has been sitting in my cart for ages, so I finally made to decision to make her apart of my collection :: EYE PRIMER : This formula is gold for me, so I picked up another shade of shimmer to wear on no-makeup days 👍🏼

Second up, the things I cannot live without. These are the beauty items that I reach for the most and that I have loved for years – they are my holy grails!

You babes know how much I love each of these products, you see them ALLL the time. No need to explanation. BRONZER :: EYE SHIMMER :: LIP OIL :: LIP BALM :: LIPSTICK :: EYE CREAM :: SHIMMER SHADOW PALETTE :: BROW POMADE :: STICK FOUNDATION :: MATTE FOUNDATION :: GLOWY FOUNDATION :: CONCEALER :: LIQUID LIPSTICK :: EYESHADOW

Lastly, the gift sets that are worth the price even IF they weren’t on sale!! I loooooove getting in holiday shopping early so that I am not stressed when it is crunch time. These are the things that will earn you “best gift giver” for any beauty junkie in your life.

POWER LIP : This NARS formula is absolutely incredible & I adore the size of these because I would never go through a full tube (they are that pigmented, you only need the smallest amount!) :: LIQUID LIPSTICK SET : This seems crazy, but these are THE BEST formula of liquid lipstick and would cover of your friends! I would split these all apart and keep some for me and gift the rest to sisters and friends :: HEAT SET : I adore my Petite Heat palette and THIS set also includes my favorite primer, the one and only setting spray and a great black liner. No brainer! :: GIANT HIGHLIGHTER : This size will last you (or your buddy) until the apocalypse and is in my top three favorite highlighters while ALSO being cheaper than the original size – GLORY GLORY – get it!! $52 VALUE 🙌🏼 :: BROW/LASH SERUM : These serums retail for $100 A PIECE & so the set was already an incredible deal, but now it’s ON SALE! I have seen results already in my brows after using this suuuuuuper sparingly for only a month! :: BLUSH SET : Not only does this set include all the best Benefit blushes AND a brush, but it includes the famous Hoola bronzer. Packaged in one travel friendly box!! It’s perfection! :: GLITTER LINER : I have loved these eyeliners for yeaaaaaars, so I gifted MYSELF a few more shades. They are really so so good. :: MUST HAVE : This set includes one of my favorite highlighters, a stunning blush and my latest lash discovery! I am buying this set for my mom for Christmas!

I hope you find something from the sale that you have been wanting!!
