We asked Sofia Divene to share the products she just cannot live without right now, from foundation to lip liner to eyeshadow. Keep reading to learn Sofia’s best tips and tricks for achieving a flawless face without breaking the bank.
A lightweight and fast-absorbing facial oil that hydrates, nourishes, and soothes the skin. Sofia admits that her skin is “as dry as the desert” so this product is her holy grail for moisturization. She sometimes puts it on at night or even puts it on right before her foundation to get that beautiful natural-looking glow. “I like to leave it on overnight and wake up with a glow. Or you can put it on before your makeup and it will instantly give you a glow as soon as you put a matte foundation over it.”
A high coverage formula that glides onto the skin for a flawless makeup finish that lasts all day. Sofia let us in on a little secret about drugstore products and how they do the trick even more so than the over-priced designer brands who mainly charge for the fancy packaging. She says that you can absolutely achieve a snatched, full beaten face with drugstore products alone, and this foundation is at the top of her list. “Hands down amazing. It’s a matte formula but it still works well for my dry skin and it’s done really well for girls with oily skin. I love drugstore products. I cannot stand to walk into Sephora and spend $60 on a foundation that’s going to run out in two seconds.”
A highly pigmented, long wearing liquid concealer. You can use this blendable, matte formula to camouflage and cover imperfections and brighten up your under eyes. Having worked for NYX, Sofia knows the ins and outs of their products and says this is a must-have that she just can’t get enough of. “Don’t sleep on this one. It’s full coverage. I used to work for NYX and have tried multiples of their products and always go back to this concealer.”
These super velvety lip liner pencils go on smoothly and provide a long-wearing matte base for your lipstick. Compared to any other lip liner out there, Sofia recommends this NYX Suede Lip Liner over other big name brands because of its shade range and formula. Other brands tend to rub off and the NYX stays put all day long. “A really good $4 lip liner. Hands down the best color range, best formula, it stays on all day.”
The smooth, long-lasting formula is one of Sofia’s favorites. These statement-making liquid lipsticks dry to a soft, glamorous finish to give a nice full look! With so many shades to choose from, you can upgrade any look. “Seriously my favorite formula and shade range!”
The colorful, smooth, pigmented shadows enhance any look! Feel like a professional makeup artist when you glide these colorful pigments onto your eyelids. Morphe offers a collection of eyeshadows with collaborations with so
me of your favorite social media influencers. Sofia Divene loves the diverse range of colors to choose from when she creates her iconic looks. “80% of my palettes are Morphe products!”
These highly pigmented shadows apply evenly and feel ultra-velvety and silky. This long lasting formula gives a soft focus effect and blends smoothly and evenly. Sofia doesn’t think you have to compromise product quality to save some money. She actually prefers the drugstore brands because their quality is top notch and won’t break the bank. Although Colourpop is not necessarily a drugstore brand, their products are very affordable and the quality is great! “Colourpop isn’t really considered a drugstore brand, but it’s in the drugstore price range and I really love their eyeshadow palettes.”
