If you have been following me for any length of time than you know I am obsessed with all things beauty products.
I love make up, skin care, bath products, perfumes anything and everything to make me FEEL beautiful.
And that’s the thing, all of this stuff isn’t for anyone else. It isn’t about wearing the right lipstick to “get a man” or to “be more desirable”.
It is about doing things that make you FEEL amazing.
That is how I view beauty, and this is what I teach my clients as well. Beauty is about taking time everyday to honor who and what you are as a woman. It is a connection to the divinity in us, and more importantly it is about honoring the beauty that you and you alone bring to this world.
When you reframe what beauty is, that it is about making yourself feel amazing it becomes easier to prioritize it.
And the best part is, especially now feeling beautiful doesn’t have to come at a large price tag.
Here are some of my favorite products under $20!
Anything and everything Colourpop.
I am a HUGE fan of the concealer. This is by far the best concealer that I have found for my under eyes. The texture is amazing, the coverage is out of this world. and for $7 you can not beat it!
I also love their eye shadow palettes.
Kiko is a brand that I found when I living in Italy in 2011. And I was so grateful for it, because it was great make up and super affordable - I was on an extremely tight budget while I lived there so it was perfect.
But I still use their make up, especially their lip products.
The best mascara I have ever used is Two Faced Better Than Sex. The travel size is under $20 - and I believe the full size is just a little more.
This mascara gives me ultimate lift and makes my lashes look so full.
I am obsessed with highlighters, the give you an instant glow and you can use there in so many different ways.
I always highlight the high points of my cheeks, but other great areas are - under your eyebrow, above your cupid’s bow and on the inner corner of your eyes.
Becca highlighters are top of the top and because you don’t ever use that much I always buy the travel size.
When it comes to make up application I highly recommend getting some great brushes- it does make a difference.
One time when I was getting my make up professionally done I asked the make up artist about her brushes, she recommended this brand and I bought a set - I have loved them ever since, and it is super affordable.
I have become obsessed with skin care recently because when you take care of your skin you actually need to wear less make up. And our skin is our largest organ so even if you are not into make up taking care of your skin just makes sense.
My absolute favorite skin care brand that is uber affordable is
They have a few sister companies as well - and everything I have ever tried from there I love.
But some of my favorites are:
Buffet, Natural Moisturizing Factors and Granactive Retinoid 2% Emulsion which comes in a set!
The thing with The Ordinary is you have to be willing to take some time to read through the products and what the different ingredients do - but it is oh so worth it.
Caudalie's Beauty Elixir is another all time favorite. This is a French skin care line, and oh do the French know their skin care.
The beauty elixir is an incredible mist that makes my skin feel hydrated, plump, awake and radiant.
Those are just a few of my favorites to start with!
