  1. You can’t go wrong with your lipstick. So high end brands give you more options according to skin tone.  Some of our favorite brands are Bobbi brown, Mac , Huda beauty, Smashbox


For beauty or makeup products with a short shelf life we prefer to spend less and when it comes to experimenting or pocket friendly drugstore products are the best choice.

We recommend products like mascara, eyeshadow pallets, blusher, eyeliner, and eye pencils.

1. Mascara has the shortest life span of all cosmetics. Needing to be replaced about every 3 -4 months. So purchasing from a drugstore is a smart choice.

2. Drugstores nowadays sell good quality eyeliner because the smooth texture of eye pencils and liners are in huge demand.
