Not sure where to start? Fill your cart with these e.l.f.ing amazing, affordable budget-friendly makeup products that have the glowing reviews (and millions of views!) to prove they are all worth the hype.
If you’re going for the clean, less-is-more natural makeup look, it all starts with a glowing complexion. Begin your routine with a brightening face serum infused with Vitamin C to nourish and protect your skin, combat signs of aging, and restore your skin’s natural radiance. A skincare-makeup hybrid like a color correcting cream w/ spf 30 (it’s a foundation and face cream in one!), plus a full coverage concealer in your perfect shade to cover up imperfections, will help you achieve that natural-looking finish with flawless, even coverage.
A complexion booster could also be worn alone to make your face glow. Wearing Halo Glow Liquid Filter alone will deliver sheer coverage & a light filtered glow. Apply the Liquid Filter to your face and then blend it out using a makeup sponge.
To create the infamous “soap brow” look, arm yourself with an extreme-hold brow gel that holds your brow hairs in place for the fluffy, feathered look you see on your feed.
Intrigued by the Douyin blush trend, which involves you applying blush all over your face for a sun-kissed glow? You need a lightweight, creamy blush to easily build and blend your look into your skin for that flushed-from-within finish. Bonus points if the formula is infused with good-for-skin, hydrating ingredients like Argan Oil and Vitamin E!
If you’re feeling nostalgic and can’t wait to hop back on the Y2K revival train, you’ll need the essentials: the perfect colorful mini eyeshadow palette for creating pastel, shimmering eye looks, and a range of glossy lip stain for that glass-like pout with a kiss of color.
No matter what viral look you’re trying to recreate, don’t forget a skin-perfecting face primer to prep your skin and grip your stunning, right-on-trend makeup look for all-day wear.
