84 percent of women between ages 18-64 have worn makeup in the past year. Makeup is something so many people have gotten to wear as an expression of who they are, bringing out a more confident and self loving version of themselves, and good and bad whether you wear makeup or not based on personal experience. These are some of the top ones.

Makeup is something women do as therapy or even just fun. Although some women don’t always know what makeup to buy or use,  especially if they are a beginner. There are so many makeup products like foundation, concealer, eyebrow pencils/gel and so much more. Sometimes it is hard to know which products to buy. Let’s start off with the first step which is primer. There are so many different primers, expensive ones, and cheaper ones. Personally, cheaper ones can be better than the expensive ones. One good primer is the Elf hydro grip primer. It is more of a gel-like feeling. It makes your skin very hydrated, keeps your face shiny free, and keeps your makeup lasting all day. 

One main step in a makeup routine is the foundation. There are so many types of foundations from so many brands. There is a matte foundation, powder foundation, and liquid. Personally, L’oreal Paris Infallible 24HR fresh wear foundation is a great foundation for people who have oily skin because it leaves a lightweight and matte look. It is also so much cheaper. You can make your skin look flawless with this foundation that is under 13 dollars, instead of a 40-dollar foundation that will also make your skin look flawless. With foundation also comes concealer. There are a lot of very nice and medium coverage concealers but not a lot o full coverage concealers. 

One of the best concealers is the L’oreal Paris Infallible concealer (up to 24 HR) full coverage concealer. It covers redness, acne scars, and imperfections. It is one of the best drugstore concealers. Not just that it is under 10 dollars which is such a good price. Concealer is a must in makeup. You need it to help with dark undereye or cover the redness of scars that weren’t covered up with foundation. 

Overall the L’oreal Paris Infallible concealer, L’oreal Paris Infallible 24 HR fresh wear foundation and the Elf hydro grip primer are some of the best makeup products. There are so many products for all skin types and there is a little bit of everything for each p. Makeup is something so many people enjoy and it is an art. People love doing it and trying out new products and finding out what works best. These products are definitely worth the try!
