It’s time for installment #2 of best beauty buys! I had a question about my favorite blush on last weeks post, so I figured I’d go ahead and cover that one:
1. NARS Orgasm – Also known as the go-to blush of practically every woman in America. Pretty much all NARS blush is amazing – depending on what color you’re wanting – but it’s pricey for us twentysomethings on a budg.
2. E.L.F. Studio Blush – Actually a pretty good dupe of NARS blush – at a MUCH better price. I have this baby in a few different colors. I generally use a bronzier color underneath my cheekbones for contouring, then use their pink passion on my actual cheeks – I like a good rosy-cheek look.
e.l.f.’s makeup isn’t as pigmented as the higher-end products, but I’ve found with a good primer and makeup setting spray (I’ll talk about those in my next beauty buys post) you can basically wear makeup from any price-point and it’ll stay put.
3. Cream Blush – L’oreal Paris Visible Lift Cream Blush
I wear ‘Pink Lift’ but it comes in several colors. If you feel comfortable wearing cream blush, this one’s definitely a go-to. I personally like wearing cream blush in the summertime moreso than winter, but it’s all about personal preference.
