Go to Sephora! I know they are expensive and somewhat intimidating, but they can be sooo helpful. They are very generous with the samples and they always have sephora brand products that are less expensive.  Plus, they’ll even do your makeup and let you try out everything before you spend a penny.  Also, once you go and see the colors and products you can always make a trip to Walmart or Target to do some comparison.  I will say, I <3 mineral make up. I use Bare Essentials, but I’ve also used the Maybelline verison and received tons of compliments with it.  The Urban Decay eye primer she suggests is awesome! And it really does help keep your makeup in place. My makeup drawer is a mix of Rimmel and Dior and everything in between.  Execution is key.  She has some great tips and tricks that are definitely worth experiementing with.  But there are so many brands/types of makeup out there and many are comparable.  If you can’t afford it all, maybe you can prioritize those products that really seem worth it and then spread the purchases out so you’re not forking over a small fortune all at once. Also, ask your friends. I’m a makeup junkie so I’m always willing to share with my friends.

@SweetRose2011: Mary Kay reps are usually great about color/product matching, too. After watching the video I’d say the most important thing is a great lasting foundation and the techniques she showed.  Print a picture of the completed make up and check with your Mary Kay rep and Sephora. Once you see the colors in person they’re easier to match.

When my fiance and I moved in together I (the perpetual single professional) had to recognize that my make up budget might look a bit pricey when compared with a dad’s spending habits. I’ve looked high and low for less expensive alternatives.  Revlon has a smudge pot type liner to check out. Loreal has a great highlight/nude eye shadow. Physician’s Formula has a nice bronzer. 

I’m not sure how many of the layers she uses are actually necessary. especially if you can find a nice color that has the elements of brown/black/plum.
