Splurge vs. Save *Make Up Edition*

Hi hey hello loves!

So I thought I’d put together my list of makeup favorites I use on the regular, and whether or not you should splurge or save on certain makeup items. Now, I’m no pro, but I can honestly say I’ve tried 90% of every makeup product on the market.. so here are my favorites!

Foundation Primer: Splurge

Megan’s Pick: Smashbox Photo Finish | SHOP

*note: I’m a big believer in when your face is set, everything else will stay in place for the day. This is why I’m choosing the splurge option on anything face related. Trust me on this one.
