I’m a big believer that make up is used to enhance your beauty not cover it, but what happens when you need some frequent enhancing? And more importantly how can you afford it? There is great drug store makeup out there that helps you still look amazing while not breaking the bank. Most of the time, these cheaper brands are produced with similar formulas to more expensive brands and are even made in the same factory. These drug store brands are able to obtain a cheaper price point by scaling down the packaging.
Don’t get me wrong…I enjoy my expensive makeup like everyone else, but my makeup tends to go fairly quickly. Because of this, I try to save my nice makeup for when I truly need to SLAY and buy drug store makeup for everyday things like school. So, I’ve listed below some of my all time favorite drug store make ups that I’ve found to have amazing quality.
NYX Clear Brow Gel
This product is a perfect dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hill Clear Brow Gel without breaking the bank. You’ll get the same fluffy eyebrows just for less.
L’Oréal Voluminous Mascara and Lash Primer
This combination is my holy grail for eyelashes. I was never very good at putting fake eyelashes on despite my years in competitive dance, but with this combo sent from heaven I never have to!
Honest Beauty Lip Crayon (Sheer Petal Kiss)
Honest Beauty is a makeup line founded by Jessica Alba that Target recently started stocking in their beauty section. Though they don’t have a wide variety of products yet, Honest Beauty’s Lip Crayon has quickly found a permanent place in my makeup routine. I use the color sheer petal kiss as creme blush and lip duo that leaves me with the most perfect natural flush.
Essence Pure Nude Highlighter (10 be my highlight)
Contrary to popular opinion, I don’t love a blazing highlight for my every day look, but that doesn’t mean I’m opposed to a little sparkle. Essence makes the best every day highlighter which gives a soft natural glow, yet you can still build the product up for the nights you’re trying to stunt.
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer (light)
Best. Drugstore. Concealer. Ever.
Milani Lipstick (Matte Naked 61)
Milani’s lipstick in the shade Matte Naked 61 has become my favorite nude lip that goes with absolutely any eye look you could possibly create. Day or night , I’m obsessed with this color.
