Nowadays wearing a flawless makeup has become almost as important as the outfit we are wearing, makeup makes us feel more confident and it is not about hiding behind foundation and mascara but to accentuate factions and highlight the natural beauty. With celebrities and beauty bloggers setting the ultimate makeup trends, ie Kylie Jenner and her lip kits, makeup is in full swing.
Makeup is an art and as an art it is really complex and has a wide variety of styles and techniques; but makeup shopping can be almost as expensive as shopping for clothing, just think that in order to do your makeup for a night out you at least need brushes (different kinds), primer, foundation, eyeshadow, brow kit, highlighter, blush or bronzer, mascara and lipstick, and just think about how much each product may cost.
For this reason I did some research and I created a list of amazing cosmetics brands from all over the world that are not only friendly with your budget but still have amazing results an a high quality. It doesn’t matter if you see a name on the list that’s not available for purchase in your country because all the brands have the option of international shipping.
Many claim that ColourPop lip glosses are exactly the same as Kylie’s lip kits, I’ve even heard that the formula for both products is the same the only thing that changes is the label. ColourPop is the beauty brand with the fastest growing in the industry and consumers are always fascinated by the quality of the products and their accessible prices.
NYX Cosmetics is one of my faves, I’m a personal fan of the brand and the best part is that it is professional makeup and beauty products so the result is a high quality look, fashion week worthy. Plus they are proudly cruelty-free!
Kiko Cosmetics is an Italian brand with stores all over the globe, I found out about it because of an italian friend who won’t wear another makeup brand other than Kiko; what I like about this brand is the European quality, the products remain intact the entire day (no need to retouch). Finally it is not all makeup they also offer advanced treatments for skin care.
As a good Mexican I needed to include a Mexican brand in the list, Bissú is a most try makeup brand, they base their products and colors in other already existing beauty products (tip: they have the exact same shade as the orgasm by Nars). This company cares about the quality of the cosmetics that’s why the products are manufactured to the highest quality standards worldwide.
E.L.F (Eyes Lip Face) is also a professional makeup brand where you can find products for as little as $1, don’t be fooled by the price it actually has a really good quality in it’s products; are you looking for good brushes but you aren’t willing to spends thousands? Just go to the closest drug store and get ELF.
First of all Physicians Formula is #1 in Bronzers beauty products, they offer hypoallergenic products that are good for sensitive skins and also they have a mineral wear line and an organic wear line. If you tend to have a greasy skin try their BB cream which won’t produce breakouts in the skin.
BH Cosmetics is famous because of it’s eye, lips and face palettes under $20, they have a studio pro line made with high quality ingredients fro long lasting makeup and feels light and soft. Some people compare their palettes to the ones from Urban Decay.
Who doesn’t loves Sephora? It’s almost impossible to go out from the store without buying something so because of the success the company decided to create their own beauty line called Sephora Collection. I have so many products from Sephora’s line and they are not only fabulous but the price is really accessible compared to the rest of the store. Once a makeup artist told me that he used to work for M.A.C. and then he got a better job offer at Sephora but what he realized is that the ingredients and the overall quality and shades of the products where the same.
Milani Cosmetics is the ultimate drug store beauty brand, with a wide variety of products inspired in Milan and a vegan line what makes this brand good is the accessibility, you can find it almost everywhere for a really good pricing. Milani’s motto is more; More quality. More design. More diversity in shade range. More colors.
