One thing I'm not well versed on is makeup products. It really doesn't matter how many YouTube tutorials I watch or how many articles I read from makeup artists, I just can't seem to get the hang of making my face look as flawless as theirs. As a result, I tend to keep it pretty simple when it comes to my makeup and try to stay away from anything that's over $10. Having recommendations of tools that makeup artists can't live without and that I can trust though, have helped me stay within budget and get as close to their flawless routines as possible.
Although I still have quite a long way to go, knowing that I have some good products in my bag now is a plus. I have very sensitive skin, so there's massive importance in ensuring that whatever I'm using does not cause a breakout or damage my skin in any way. When I do get my makeup done and artists ask me what I'm using, it's usually some drugstore dupe that I found for a better price.
Clearly I'm not professional, but these 13 product and tool recommendations that came from a few professionals can help you get the look that you're searching for. And, they might even be in your budget.
