I know, you think that makeup is not clothing and we’re here to talk clothes but actually I’m here to talk fashion not just clothes and makeup is a huge part of that. With that in mind, I want to talk about my favorite places to buy makeup and my favorite items!
If you have the money, my absolute favorite place to grab a lippie is Gerard Cosmetics. They have these AMAZING liquid lipsticks that I simply cannot get enough of. Hydra-Mattes and Metal-Mattes galore! It is a bit pricey but they always have some sort of sale going on. I follow them on Instagram where they always have their promos posted and new items! They also have this Slay All Day Setting Spray that I never leave home without on a hot day or when I have a full face of cosplay makeup going on. My favorite is lavender which is super soothing but they have a ton of different scents! Go to their website to check them out!
My second favorite makeup line has to be Colourpop Cosmetics! It is quite a bit cheaper than Gerard Cosmetics. Their Lippie Stix and liquid lippies are divine! They also have super fun collabs like My Little Pony which will give you wicked 90’s flashbacks! Personally, I grabbed 2 of the Pony liquid lippies and one of the highlighters! They are so much fun!! I have yet to try out their eye shadows but I have no doubt they are just as incredible as the rest of their line. Go check out their website and see the fabulousness for yourself!
And finally, you must check out NYX Cosmetics! They have an amazing customer program where you can get awesome gifts with certain purchase amounts. I recently spent $75 and got 3 of their highlighter products for free! I use their Studio Perfect Primer which is just as good if not better (and cheaper) than Smashbox. They also have my absolute favorite finishing powder! I’ve honestly yet to find anything that I don’t like from NYX. It’s cheap and fabulous. Their lippies are amazing and I love their colored eyeliner! I use most of NYX lines for my cosplay makeup since they have such a large variety of colors and you can run down to your neighborhood Ulta store and get it there. I lucked out and they finally opened a NYX store just down the street from me! It’s so dangerous for me to walk in there! I def suggest checking them out!
I suggest going for an amazing red lippie that is great for your skin tone! Everyone feels great with a red lip! Each of the lines above have good ones. Since I have a red-ish skin tone I look for a red lip that has more of the blue undertones. If you ask one of the people in the store they can help you find the right one for you or you can ask me and I would love to help you out! Also, a good liquid liner and mascara are always needed to help make your eyes pop. Let’s not forget that brows are a huge thing at the moment, I suggest a nice powder to fill in your brows. Let me know if you have any questions!
Until next time! Xoxo
