Best Of Beauty Sale Under $35!

I often get asked which makeup products are the best and honestly I have too many favorites. So when I ran across this sale I thought I would share the ones I love the most. Not to mention there is nothing over $35! I am going to go in the order I would apply the makeup to make this as simple as possible.

(Please note: this post does include affiliate links, meaning I make a small commission if you make a purchase. There is no additional cost to you!)

Laura Mercier ‘Radiance’ Foundation Primer, Size 1 oz – No Color– This primer can be used without any makeup. When added to foundation it gives a beautiful and effortless glow to the skin.

MAC MAC Studio Face & Body Foundation – N1– When it comes to full coverage, there is nothing like this Face & Body Foundation. I know many makeup artists who swear by this product.

Clinique ‘Even Better’ Makeup Spf 15 – Vanilla– If you are looking for the perfect everyday foundation this is perfect! Sunscreen is known to prevent wrinkles so I make sure my daily foundation has some form of SPF.

Urban Decay ‘Naked Skin’ Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer – Honestly, the name sums it up perfectly. This concealer is great for highlighting under the eyes and I have yet to see it crease!

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer, Size 0.3 oz – Nw20– A staple in most makeup artists collections. It is a must for blemishes and dark circles.

MAC Mineralize Blush – Gentle – I can go without a lot of things but blush is not one of them. Everyone needs a little color to their cheeks. The Mineralize blushes last all day and there is a color for every skin tone.

MAC Bronzing Powder – Golden– Now that spring is here I am starting to use self tanner more. In doing so I am also applying bronzer. I will even go as far as bronzing down my neck, chest and shoulders. Make sure when choosing your shade that you don’t buy a bronzer that is too warm. You do not want to be orange!



Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Cream Palette – Not everyone likes to contour their face but I wanted to add this in to the group for those who do. I was not a huge fan of the original palette but these cream shades blend very well.

MAC ‘Mineralize’ Skinfinish – Warm Rose – I bought this highlight a few months ago and LOVE it! I have used it in every wedding and love the glow it adds to the cheekbones.

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder – #1 – If you love full coverage you will love this powder. It is perfect for “baking” and helps brighten the under eyes.

MAC ‘Pro Longwear’ Paint Pot – Painterly & Urban Decay Original Eyeshadow Primer Potion – Both are amazing bases for your eyeshadows.

Urban Decay ‘Naked Basics’ Palette – Naked Basics is a go to for everyday eyeshadow. It also works really well as a brow powder for blondes. If you are wanting to add a bit of color I suggest the MAC ‘Dusky Rose Times Nine’ Eyeshadow Palette – Dusky Rose Times Nine. These shadows are highly pigmented and blendable.

Every person has a preference to what type of eyeliner they like. A great option for liquid eyeliner is Stila ‘Stay All Day’ Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner – Black. If you are wanting something for the water line I suggest the MAC Eye Kohl – Smolder. Otherwise my favorite type of eyeliner is a gel form. You can’t go wrong with this Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner – Black Ink.

As for brows I believe everyone already knows there is no contender. If you like using a pencil there is the Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Brow Wiz’ Mechanical Brow Pencil – a well known favorite. Make sure you get the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel – to set those bad boys in place. The company also makes this Anastasia Beverly Hills ‘Dipbrow Pomade’ Waterproof Brow Color – which is used for a more defined brow.

Lancome Definicils Lengthening And Defining Mascara – Black & the Urban Decay ‘Perversion’ Mascara – Perversion are two of many mascaras on sale right now. Both of which have amazing reviews.



As for lip liner you can’t go wrong with the MAC Lip Pencil – Stone. Add MAC Pink Lipstick – Creme Cup (C) and you’re golden!

Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray – Most people look at me crazy when I pull out my setting sprays but they really do work. If you want to lock in your makeup then they are a must. I call them hairspray for the face.

As for applicators, there is nothing more versatile than the Beautyblender ‘Pro’ Makeup Sponge Applicator. I use mine for foundation, concealing and setting powders. These last a while if kept in good condition.

Anyways, I don’t know how long this sale is going to last so now is the time to stock up! Let me know if y’all have any questions.
