Quick, Go-To Makeup 

My Instagram

I’ve recently got hooked on makeup tutorials and have tried to come up with new looks. I feel like a lot of the brands makeup artists use are so expensive, even with the discount codes they offer. I wanted to come up with a couple of tools that I use every day that are affordable!

All of these products are from Ulta. The links in the descriptions connect you directly to the site where you can purchase the item!

1. Revolution Baked Highlighter

The highlighter obsession is unreal! I really love giving my face an extra pop and it really helps for selfies *hint hint*. This is Revolution Baked Highlighter in the shade Peach Lights and it is so bright! You really only need a quick swipe across your cheek to get the glow you need.

2. Matte Lipstick

Matte lipstick seems to be the biggest trend right now but a lot of name brands are charging $20-25 for their lipstick! To me, that seems like a bit much for something that can be wiped off easily by eating food. Of course, my go-to brand is Nyx and, get this, their matte lipstick is only $6! They also have another matte lipstick brand called Lip Lingerie that has a couple different shades and the tube is longer and fancier.

The shade I love the most in the matte lipsticks is Abu Dhabi. This shade is a light tan that really goes well with neutral colors, as seen in the picture of me below.

3. Another Highlighter 😮

I know, I know but you can never have too much glow (while editing I noticed this rhymed hehe). This was the first highlighter I bought when I first saw the trend appear. This is Nyx Illuminator in the shade Enigmatic. The interesting thing about this one is that it has a pink undertone so it combines a blush with a highlighter! It’s perfect if you want to save money and not have to buy blush and a highlighter.
