Sandi’s makeup must haves

Sharing is caring!

My name is Sandi and I love makeup! For someone who doesn’t wear makeup every day, you wouldn’t think I have as much as I do. Back when I was a hairstylist, I would do prom/special occasion makeup. I taught myself by watching YouTube videos and I still watch videos from time to time. Anytime I go to Ulta or Sephora, I always come out with more than I planned. During my makeup tutorial today (I saved to our highlights), I didn’t show you the makeup I tried and wasn’t impressed with. One of those items is a $60 loose powder that I will have for the next 30 years because I rarely use it. I’m hoping this will save you from buying those items you will never use and instead find products you love.

I do not consider myself a makeup guru. I love to learn new things and find out what other people like. I have oily/combination skin so what I like, you may not. Here are my go to current items. I would love for you to leave your favorite beauty/makeup products in the comments and let us know what type of skin you have.

    Let me say I love you and Shalia! I seriously feel like y’all are my besties! Thank you for sharing all the good stuff. Please tell me about your eyelashes. Did you get them lifted and tinted?? How often do you have to go back to maintain them? Do you still apply mascara everyday? I’ve been wanting to do this for so long because I hate putting on mascara but my eyelashes are blonde and my eyes just don’t show up without mascara! Thank you girls so much, you are my go to people!

      Aww, thank you so much! I have eyelash extensions and I LOVE them. I don’t use mascara or anything on them. I do get them filled every 2-3 weeks so they are high maintenance but are so worth it.

      Hi! Thank you! I wear Neutral Tan but once summer really gets here I will switch to Tan. Shalia wears medium all year around.
