Foundation, powder, and eye shadow are the products you want to spend a little extra money. Professional foundations and powders have finely milled color particles that look much more natural on the skin and are easier to blend. Pro eye shadows won't drop on your cheeks during application, have much more color pay off and stay put all day.
