I finally sat down with my little sister, Deepica, to bring you all the skin care dupes. First up is Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. It’s a primer and moisturizer in one, and everyone is completely obsessed with it! Honestly, it is worth the hype. When you put it on and wear it all day, you really notice how great your skin looks and feels. So, my dupe is the Pixie Dewy Moisturizer. It is really lightweight and does the same thing. You can get it from Target. The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream is over 100 dollars, so this is a really good dupe.

If you guys follow me on Instagram, you know that I always use my Cover FX Custom Enhancer Drops. They are beautiful little illuminator drops. I love the rose gold shade. This dupe is Makeup Revolution from Ulta and is under 10 dollars.

This next one is CC Cream. CC cream is a color correcting cream, so it is basically a lighter foundation. It has lots of additional benefits to it, like Vitamin C or Hyaluronic Acid. BB cream is beauty balm which is like a tinted moisturizer. I prefer CC cream. This one is Erborian CC Cream. It is a high-end Korean beauty cream and only comes in two shades. It ended up being a little ashy on Deepica, but it works on me. The dupe for this is L’oreal Magic BB Cream and it comes in more shades. It also has SPF which is great.

Next, let’s talk about foundation. My favorite full coverage foundation is Estee Lauder Double Wear. I use the color Wheat and Deepica is Toffee. The dupe is the Wet n Wild Photo Focus finish. I love this product so much; my only wish was that the applicator was better. But for under five dollars compared to the Estee Lauder which costs 40 dollars, it doesn’t get much better than this dupe.

Now, let’s talk about the corrector. I like the Tarte CC Color Corrector in the medium deep shade. The dupe is the NYX Color Corrector. It is under 10 dollars, and really could double as a concealer. The tarte one is around 30 dollars.

Next up is powder. This one is the Huda Beauty Easy Bake and it just launched two weeks ago. The dupe I love is the Maybelline Fit Me Loose Power. They are so similar!

Let’s talk eyeshadow. I get a lot of questions about eye shadow. Honestly, I just love neutrals. One of my go-to’s is the Tartlette in Bloom. I just swoop the base color on my whole lid, and then take my finger to dab on the shimmer color in the center. For the dupe, I love the NYX.

Let’s go to mascara now, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is amazing. The dupe is the L’Oreal Lash Paradise. The formula is amazing on this dupe, but sometimes it does get a little clumpy.

The highlighter, Masterchrome Metallic Highlighter is Molten Gold and is soo good. NARS also came out with their highlighter called Orgasm Illuminating Loose Powder and it is also amazing.  For bronzer, Too Faced always has great bronzers. My favorite drugstore, Milani Cosmetics Baked Bronzer in Soleil is the greatest dupe for this.

Last, but not least. We have setting spray. I use the Cover FX Dewy Finish Setting Spray. I also love the Pixie Glow Mist which is such a great drugstore brand.
