Build Your Makeup Bag


Get in, ladies and gentlemen. We’re going shopping.

While I may be a self-proclaimed seasoned champion of makeup, I’m aware that a lot of people are just beginning to enter the beauty world. There’s little benefit in investing in luxury products if you’re a makeup beginner or someone who is still developing their skills unless, of course, it’s for personal reasons such as allergy concerns or even for bourgeoisie reasons. Hey, I don’t judge. In fact, most of my favorite foundations are high-end (see them here), while some of my other favorite products are drugstore. Either way, you should be able to have the option to build your makeup bag in a sensible way if you please to do so.

Even if you’re not a beginner but just the thought of shelling out tons of cash for makeup doesn’t sit right with you (we are in a pandemic, people), building a makeup kit for under $100 might appeal to you, also. Well, I’m here for you. I care about you. I care about your wants and needs (and your pockets). It wasn’t easy but for you, I’ve done it. Everything you need. The best of the best. From start to finish. From primer to setting spray. I have done it. Oh, please, stop thanking me. 😛

Now that you are all aware that I have no shame and that I tell people to stop thanking me when clearly no one is, read on to see what I’ve managed to put together.

Total price for everything listed here? $98.53! Yes, an entire makeup collection of tried and true, quality products that you’re guaranteed to love. It is possible to build your makeup bag for under $100. They said I couldn’t do it (no one said that) but I did. Even if you’re not looking for an entire collection, maybe you’ve been searching for a good lip gloss to try or a good drugstore foundation. Either way, I hope I was able to show you something that you like and you won’t feel guilty for purchasing. ♥
