In order to find a good, long-lasting and easy to apply decorative cosmetics, it is not necessary to spend half the salary on elite brands. We asked beauty experts to tell you what inexpensive money they like and why.

H&M Fluid Hues Eye Color Cream Eyeshadow is my discovery this season. They are similar to the Armani Eye Tint, but the price is much more welcoming. The main advantages are a delicate silk texture and a wet finish, which is still popular.
The durability was very pleased: with proper application, the makeup will last all day. But these shadows need to get used to. It is better to apply to the covered eye and allow them to dry for a couple of seconds. It is more convenient to blend with your finger than with the applicator. Apply to the center of the upper eyelid and stretch to the inner and outer corners of the eye, blending to a completely transparent layer.
Black can be used as an eyeliner. To do this, draw shadows on the beveled brush and draw the ciliary contour. A pale pink shade is suitable as the base color for the lips. I like the versatility in decorative cosmetics, so I put the top five on cream shades from H&M.

I have long been fond of Maybelline gel eyeliner for a rich, deep black, comfortable brush in the kit and numerous eye makeup options: from delicate classic arrows to full-fledged and grunge smokeys. The arrow can be saturated, lengthened and expanded as desired. And the main thing in smokey is to quickly shade the line into the haze until the pigment has fixed.
From the whole palette, I love classic black, without shine and shimmer. The durability of this eyeliner is excellent, it is not inferior to products from the professional and luxury segment. In my opinion, an indispensable thing in a cosmetic bag.

Highlighter Halo H&M I love for the cool texture and shades. I especially like Champagne Gold. It works very beautifully on the skin and is in no way inferior to the highlighter of the Becca brand.
It even seems to me that this is the only highlighter from the mass market presented in Russia that can fully replace it.

L'Occitane's Rose-Karite Soledad Bravi Lip Balm has been presented to me recently, but it has already become my favorite. It perfectly moisturizes and looks beautiful on the lips; it has a light pink tint.

I loved the shadows of Color Tattoo Maybelline even before I became a makeup artist. They are really very persistent, and the palette has quite successful shades. It is a pity that many really cool colors are not represented in Russia.
