Makeup – Full Face Using Only Affordable Makeup | Life Of Dahlia

Hey, my beautiful followers, I’ve been using a lot of high-end makeup recently so I wanted to focus on the more affordable items in my makeup collection this month. Seeing as it’s getting into the cooler months I thought I would create a autumn, fall look.

Ironically we are having a heatwave in Adelaide this week and being April it’s quite unusual. It’s usually cooled down by now.

Like I said I wanted to focus on using Affordable products, so for this look, I’ve used all affordable brands. I also accidentally used mostly Aussie brands for this look which was unintentional, but I always love to support Australian Brands, because I feel like they need more love.

Today I wanted to feature some newer products to my collection but also used a few that have been in my collection for a little while.

I used the DB CosmeticAll Eyes On You‘ eyeshadow palette which was a limited edition palette released at Christmas but you could easily use the BYS Cosmetic ‘Berries’ palette to create a similar look.

Some of the new products I used for this look include the DB CosmeticsLuminous Hydrating Foundation‘ which I mixed with the ‘Rise & Prime, Luminescent Primer‘ and lightened with the AustralisMatch Maker Lightening Drops‘ to match my shade. I love this mix for days when I want something with a lighter coverage. I’ve also really been enjoying using a more hydrating foundation and then lightly setting, I just find matte foundations just settle on my skin and dry it out too much.

Another recent purchase that I used in this look is the Chi Chi CosmeticsIridescent Glow Highlighting Palette‘ & the ‘Opalescent Glow Cream Highlighter Palette‘. I used a mix of  ‘Rose Quarts & Opal’ from the ‘Iridescent Glow‘ palette on my highlight points and ‘Unicorn‘ from the ‘Opalescent Glow‘ palette on my lips as a lip topper. Unfortunately, I feel like neither translated well in the photo.

I’ll include a list of everything I used below, I’m going to play more with the palettes from Chi Chi and the products from DB Cosmetic and I will hopefully post reviews about them sometime in the near future.

Products I Used:

  • Eyes: DB Cosmetics – ‘All Eyes On You‘ palette
  • Eyeshadow Primer: Essence – ‘I love colour intensifying eyeshadow base’
  • Eyeliner: NYX Professional – ‘Matte Liquid Liner’ in ‘MLL01 Black’
  • Face Primer: Savvy by DB – ‘Smooth Finish Primer

  • Foundation: DB Cosmetics – ‘Luminous Hydrating Foundation‘ mixed with the ‘Rise & Prime, Luminescent Primer‘ and lightened with the Australis ‘Match Maker Lightening Drops‘ to match my shade.
  • Finishing Powder: Chi Chi Cosmetics – ‘Real Minerals Finishing powder‘ in Translucent.
