Real vs. Steal: Makeup

I am starting a new post series that compares trending expensive items with their cheaper look alike! Whenever I look through Instagram or watch Youtube videos I notice that almost everything being worn or used is typically high end. While it can be totally okay to splurge occasionally, theres no need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars when there are almost exact look alikes! I am kicking off this series with makeup because almost all of us girls wear makeup at some point, if not everyday! The problem with makeup can be the price! High end makeup is very tempting and is usually what I buy but I also resort back to drugstore products when I find ones that work the same as my splurges. I have put together some of my go-to┬ádupes for my favorite┬ámakeup products! To shop the products, click on the “Shop My Posts” sidebar link! xoxo
