There's nothing more exciting then hearing straight from the professionals tips to help us look our best without spending our entire savings in one season's worth of wardrobe and makeup. I was obsessed with Marie Claire magazine editor Nina Garcia's books like The One Hundred and The Little Black Book of Style because it illustrated what's worth a splurge and what's not and am now really excited to get my hands on Andrea Pomerantz Lustig new book How To Look Expensive. In it she shares beauty editors secrets to getting gorgeous without breaking the bank. In one chapter she details the best expensive looking makeup worth the splurge but also their cheaper counterparts that mimic the same look.
By Terry products were given a lot of beauty editor approval with 4 products making the splurge cut as products she would use herself. Andrea loves luminous foundations that come with their own attached brush so the product squirts through the brush and is then easy to apply. By Terry's VIP Expert Light Expert Perfecting Foundation Brush was one of her splurge foundation favorites because it does just this!
To create the perfect cat-eye calls for a perfect eyeliner so Andrea chooses By Terry Ligne Blackstar Intense Liquid Eyeliner for it's ability to give tattoo precision with a calligraphy felt tip. If wet eyeliner is not your forte then Andrea suggests By Terry Crayon Kohl Terrybly which offers excellent glide along with intense pigmented color and long lasting hold. And lastly, give the remainder of your eyes a big pop with any of the By Terry Ombre Blackstar Cream Eyeshadows. Their melt away formulations enhances the eye with an utra glossy hold and stretchable texture allows you to mold and play with the shape!
