Expensive or 'cheap' make up?

Posted by   + Show Post

 I only use Elf which is farely cheap and works great. I have found the expensive stuff makes me itch and it bothers my eyes so bad that I just cant wear it. What do you wear? What do you recommend? I would like to branch out and maybe find something that would actually have the color of foundation i need no one has got it right yet!

I use a mix of both. It really depends on what works for you and your skin type, what your budget is, your makeup techniques and what you like.

I just started wearing makeup again so I'm just buying drugstore makeup while I get the hang of things!

I'm not particular about my makeup . . I don't wear foundation . . the only thing I buy the name brand for is mascara . . I use Maybelline Collosal Volume . . everything else is whatever I find at Wal-Mart . .

I don't compromise on foundation. I have tried so many different brands and the one that fit my skin perfectly is guerlain (sp). I plan on trying MAC when I run out. I absolutely love their powder. The rest I would go for anything from MAC to max factor, revlon, essence or high end brands.

I just started using ELF recently and am totally addicted to the brand. Love the prices and all the nifty items they have available. I just last week bought their flawless finish foundation and adore it.

I use Aveda foundation because it is the only thing that works for my skin. I have Urban Decay, Too Faced, Wet n' Wild, and various other eye shadows, Aveda lip stick, and I forget what brand of mascara but it is a lower cost store brand.

I use both high end and drugstore since I'm a freelance makeup artist. In my personal collection I use more drugstore brands
