roads Pictures, Images and Photos

this quote means a lot to me; we all go through that time in our life where it gets so complicated and all we want to do is give up. 2-3 years ago i really messed up in life i took school as a joke, many opportunity passed me by and all i wanted to do was party party party. im so glad i changed my ways of thinking i thought it was all about having fun i made my parents go through a lot but i had the biggest wake up call, and i changed my ways now at 18 im in college i have my mind right and im trying to conquer my goals. remember girls after the rain comes the sunshine ; never give up ...

i really need your help. i want to learn how to do makeup so bad you girls inspire me so much. i know very little, but in order to begin i need brushes & their sooo EXPENSIVE [ yikes] so is their any places you know of where i can buy cheap brushes as a beginer. also what are other good products other than MAC. help me out dollsss !!

You can start with someting like Target brand brushes. They're really cheap compared to other brands & begin with those.

Nice outfit.

As for brushes, I agree with Target.
Target has this line of brushes in there.
Go to Wal-Mart and buy a set.. that's where I got my first set of brushes.
E.L.F. has brushes for $1 or #3.

As for makeup brands, like the one I'm a Rep for... NYX is amazing and quite affordable!
They also have brushes and such, too.
L'Oreal H.I.P. is another amazing brand.
It's cheaper to buy in Target/Wal-Mart than in a drugstore (Rite Aid, CVS, etc). But drugstores offer weekly discounts.

I like Ecotools brushes. They sell them at walgreens or cvs.

I also like Revlon's foundations.

What kind of makeup are you looking for ?
foundation? e/s ? skincare stuff ?

I would soooo go makeup shopping with you to help =)

I agree start out with Target and Wal-Mart makeup.
Once you get more used to it then start investing in the better brands.

Hey girl, I think the majority of the people have said this but I def. think that target would be your best bet for the cheap but still good quality brushes and things like that.

As far as makeup goes, for the more "upscale" brands my favorites are benefit and MAC. For the lower end brands I swear by Maybelline mascara and Cover Girl eye liner.

Thanks for the sweet comment hun! :) It really did lift my spirits & you were totally right. After I finished my Chem exam and everyone else in the class up upset that they didn't do well, I was happy because I felt confident about how I did ^__^ Now I need to get through tomorrow's presentation & study for finals.

I go to CSU Stanislaus. It's a little state school.

My friend told me she loves her Ecotool brushes and they're from Fred Myer. They feel pretty soft!

Anyways, I tag you! Check it out on my blog.

For brushes, Target, Walgreens, CVS, and Ulta have some good brands. I heard Ecotool brushes were pretty good too[ those are next on my list to try].

I normally use MAC but if I am not using MAC, I use Lo'real HIP, Maybelline, and Cover Girl. But hey those are just some of my favorites. I hope this helps =]
