When it comes to celebrity makeup, Selena Gomez is one of my favorites. I’ve never, ever seen a horrible picture of her! Her makeup is always amazing. It’s fresh and natural with an occasional bold lip or liner. Stunning, effortless looks that are easily repeatable and wearable any day of the week. But let’s be real, if I attempted to reproduce every stunning photograph of Selena, I’d go bankrupt.
Drugstore makeup can become expensive, too. For example, to recreate the 3 celebrity looks in this post you would need 3 different lipsticks. They retail for around $8.99 a tube so that would be $27. And, that’s just the lips! But there is a solution for us thrill-seeking, makeup geeks – makeup palettes. Places like BH Cosmetics have 66-shade lipstick palettes for $9.99…that’s 15¢ a shade. A huge savings in comparison to a drugstore buy ($9.99 vs. $593 to be exact).
So the answer is Yes. We can afford them with the right resources. We don’t have the luxury of a personal makeup artist but we can enjoy the benefits as if we did.
