Question: What is the best makeup to splurge on?
Answer: It’s fun to splurge on beauty products—even if it’s just one. There is something undeniably special about owning a luxury product. Whether you’re preparing for a special occasion or simply want to give a gift to yourself, check out these amazing luxury makeup items that truly live up to their hype:
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer is an all-around beautiful product. It has a nice amount of coverage, it’s moisturizing and it evens your skin tone without looking like you’re wearing makeup. Not to mention the packaging is sleek and sophisticated. You also get more for your money because the product has 1.5 oz, unlike the typical 1 oz. that most face products contain.
Products that go on the skin are, in my opinion, the ones worth spending more money on. They have a better color range and generally better results than you’d find in a cheaper product (although there are a few great ones at the drugstore). For example, Benefit Fake Up Concealer is ultra-hydrating, and covers redness and dark spots without drying out on the skin or looking cake-y. If you want to go super-luxe, try Marc Jacobs Re(Marc)Able Full Cover Concealer. This concealer is also very moisturizing because it contains anti-aging skincare ingredients, as well as Shea Butter. It gives great coverage and comes in a sleek and stylish little pot.
As far as powder goes, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder is a luxury product that’s worth every penny. It gives the skin a sheer glow without looking at all sparkly, and provides that extra bit of staying power that we all look for in a powder. There are several shades and each one is supposed to make you look as though you’re standing in flattering light. That on its own is luxury at its finest. Give this a try if you’re looking to treat yourself to a glowing complexion.
There’s something very romantic about pulling a beautifully packaged lipstick out of your handbag, isn’t there? And in my opinion, the brand of lipstick to splurge on is Yves Saint Laurent. They have beautiful colors and their lipstick is super hydrating. The packaging is simply gorgeous as well…gold and glamorous.
Finding that one luxury product to splurge on will make your makeup routine seem just that much more glamorous—and we all deserve to feel glamorous, no?
