When I first started wearing makeup I started with drugstore products. I didn’t know anything about makeup and what exactly I needed, we didn’t have YouTube back then and also my mom wasn’t into makeup. I didn’t have any one to really help me decide what I should get or what went with my skin tone/ type. There was a lot of trial and error!
I have some girlfriends who are barely getting into makeup, and are wanting to know my top drugstore favorites! I wanted to be realistic and refer products I know I used when I first started. Products that I know beginners can use and can slowly start becoming that beauty enthusiast we all are!
Primer– Realistically I don’t think primer is needed for day-to-day basis, only if you’re going to be maybe going out for a night out. I never used primer till about 5yrs ago!
Foundation- there is so many good foundations for many skin types. These are my favorites;
Concealer- is great for covering dark circles, for highlighting.
Powder/Baking Powder- I have yet to find a good powder foundation powder however I have found two gems. They’re both oldies but goodies!
Rimmel London Stay Matte $3.97
Bronzer & Blushes- I always come back to this beautiful bronzer it’s the perfect tone not too red or too cool. You can also find gorgeous blushes at the drugstore, some are chalky but with lots of research I found some beautiful ones.
Highlighter – I cant forget that glow! This is something I still have a hard time with trying to find a good glow. These pass the test!
Lash Curler – I don’t have much to say about it a lash curler! It makes such a huge difference!
Eyeshadows – There isn’t too much the drugstore has to offer in this department in my opinion. My FAVORITE shadows are from Wet N Wild the pigmentation is amazing!
Mascara – I love drugstore mascara Ive tried so many, high end and yet I always come to my bae! Gives me tons of volume and length & dark lashes. I love that it comes in two formulas of waterproof and regular.
Brushes – Again the drugstore doesn’t have good quality in this department yet. I have 2 brands I tend to always reach for when im in need.
Lipstick – Drugstore has so many lipsticks and great formulas! I love so many I couldn’t really chose a specific shade.
Maybelline Creamy Mattes
