Best Online Beauty Resources

Did you know there's a site out there that can help you pick out a foundation shade???! Seriously wish I knew about this so much earlier but I'm not someone who saves their receipt and this could have saved me a lot of money and headaches of trial and error when it came to foundation. Besides that, today I want to share a few of my favorite sites for beauty resources. There are a million spots to hit on the internet but here are must trusted sites that I go to religiously before making purchases!

First up is this magical foundation site I described Findation! I must say that it is pretty darn accurate! It doesn't have every single foundation under the sun but it has a pretty big directory of them and so far they have done great at matching my color. It works by putting in the shades of foundations you own that you know match perfectly and you can select a foundation (or few) that you want to try and it will magically tell you what color you should pick up! So far this site has not led me wrong, and I even did a few tests with colors that I own and know are a match and each time they got it pretty much dead right with just one or two instances where it was off by a shade. Definitely a great site to check out and it helps you get closer to your correct shade than random guessing will! It's great because it has both high end and drugstore options, I really don't pick anything up anymore without first consulting this site.

You can find reviews anywhere with a simple Google search but one site that is always the last deciding factor for me is Makeup Alley. Literally every product you can ever dream of is on this site! There are hundreds of reviews for any individual item and the contributors all specify their specific skin/hair/whatever situation so it's easy to find people who are similar to you and get reviews that you can really trust. I pick up on product suggestions all the time for YouTube and various blogs, but before I drop the money I always consult Makeup Alley to make sure it has a general census of being a solid item.

The last site that I have to talk about is Nouveau Cheap which is the best resource EVER for drugstore products as well as deals and coupons! The mastermind behind this blog is constantly updating new drugstore sightings, swatches and more, plus amazing coupons and deals that I have a hard time saying no to! Also there are weekly drugstore and coupon round ups that makes it so worth it to even tune in for just that. It seems to be her goal in life to get drugstores to pay you money to take makeup off their hands, so this is just a great blog to follow for all the best deals whether or not you're on a tight budget!

What are some of your favorite online resources?
