High End Starter Kit

The high end starter kit: a solid list of upscale cosmetics to start off with if you’re in the market for a beauty bag upgrade!
Bare Mineral’s Prime Time: Not exactly upscale however it’s silicone texture helps to fill in fine lines and wrinkles while adding a longer wear time to your makeup, it’s just as effective as other primers on the market for twice it’s price.

Chanel foundation

Chanel’s Vita Lumiere Aqua: you’ve probably heard of this foundation before, thanks to it’s natural yet full coverage with a velvety skin-like texture, this is my all time favorite high-end foundation! Made with half water, this is the most natural looking foundation I’ve tried thus far. It covers scars magically however, because of it’s light weight finish, it doesn’t cover texture. For acne prone skin I recommend Makeup Forever Foundation.

Nars Creamy Concealer: It’s not everyone’s favorite for no reason; this is one of the best concealers I’ve ever tried! Short and sweet: it’s like liquid velvet on your face! It’s weightless texture blends right into your skin with minimal effort!

Bare Minerals Bare Skin Finishing Powder: A lightweight finishing powder made to soak up access oil, making your makeup look last longer! Apply with a fluffy brush in rapid circular motions for a flawless finish.

chanel lipstickChanel Rouge Coco Lipstick: The ultimate lipstick in luxury, the packaging and formula is so smooth and pigmented. Go ahead and treat yourself!


Urban Decay Naked Palette 3: My favorite palette out of all of the Naked’s, I prefer the warm tones in this addition. Plus, you get more for your money by purchasing a palette over the individuals when you’re first starting out!

    Love this post! Sometimes upgrading your makeup stash can be a bit daunting. The price tags are so high, you just can’t afford to get it wrong!xx

    What a good choice of high end products! I’m using Lift Lumiere by Chanel, but when it finishes I’d like to give a try to Vitalumiere Aqua. I’ve heard so may good things about it, it makes me feel like it’s better than mine :)) I’d add Double Wear concealer by Estee Lauder to your list, it gives a good coverage and stays well on oily skin. It’s one of my favorites! 🙂

    I’ve never tried the Double Wear products but I hear the foundation is AMAZE for full coverage, I should try the concealer next!

    I think the two foundation’s are completely different coverage so its all personal preference! Thanks for the suggestions!
