We all get that rush upon entering Sephora and seeing all of the multicolored, beautifully packaged products ready to be thrown into our shopping baskets. But do you ever cringe when you look at the large number at the bottom of your receipt after a spree? Cut down on those beauty bills by only allowing yourself to splurge on what's most important for your glam, glowing beauty looks. Here's what we think is worth the splurge:
1. Skincare products
Keeping your skin healthy is paramount to looking and feeling your best. Using cheap cleansers, serums and moisturizers is not worth the possible damage. Talk to a skincare professional like an aesthetician or a dermatologist to find the right products for your skin type.
2. Cleansing brushes
Skincare won't do its job if it's not applied right! Read up on different brushes like Clarisonic, Foreo, and the Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush to find the right one for your skincare products and skin type.
It's called foundation for a reason; it's the base for the rest of your makeup. So make sure you find a foundation that you like, that works well with your skin type, and matches your skin tone. Use Sephora Color IQ to match your coloring perfectly, then work from there!
Bronzer can look clown-like (or Jersey Shore-like) if it's not the right shade or consistency. Take the time to pick out a nice bronzer at a beauty store to find a shade that gives you a subtle, sunkissed look—avoid anything that's too glittery or too far from your natural skin tone.
Nice makeup brushes will apply your makeup well, and last longer—so you don't have to pick up new brushes every month.
