There are a few things however that in my opinion are worth it for me. Items such as makeup brushes. Not only are good quality brushes tres important in my career as a makeup artist but they really do make a world of difference. Some of my fav's are Mac Cosmetics 217 blending brush ($27.00) and 239 eye shading brush ($29.50) both which I have multiples of.
That being said I'm not opposed to less expensive brushes, in fact I have several brushes in my collection that I use on almost every client such as this Black Taklon Angle Liner that I get from CoastalScents.com for $1.85.
Another place where I choose to splurge a little is eye cream. I discovered Vasanti Cosmetics Eye Wonder eye cream and have never looked back. Its a miracle in a jar! At $42.00 it isn't cheap however I justify it because not only does it work but the jar is a lot bigger than most eye creams and it lasts a long time.
Perfumes another area where you cant help but splurge. Most name brand perfumes cost anywhere from $50-$120 and so while I do tend to purchase my favs once or twice a year I have found ways around this. I have found some awesome scents at The Body Shop such as Neroli Jasmin and a classic fav of mine White Musk EDT, they retail for anywhere from $17.00 - $28.00 depending on the size and fragrance you choose. These scents smell amazing, last a long time and won't break the bank!
These are just some of the areas I choose to spend a bit more on beauty.
Where do you indulge when it comes to beauty products?
