We all know that makeup can sometimes cause major dents in our wallets. However, I do believe that you should invest in the products that you use the most and spend less on the products that you use sporadically.
For example, I wear the most makeup around my eyes, so I invest in eye makeup products. On the other hand, I rarely wear lip products, so I do not spend as much on those things.
Take a look at my list and decide whether to splurge or steal in each makeup category!
