Since school is about to start I thought this would be a perfect time to share a few affordable drugstore makeup products. I remember when I was in high school, but more in college I used to like to wear makeup that didn't break my budget. You know I'm really proud of some drugstore makeup brands for stepping up their game on some of their products. As much as I like high end makeup, I love finding good brands on sale or for reasonable prices. I tried to compose a list of products that were at least $20 and under.
Face Sprays and Primers
If you live in the South, like I do you already know that our Summers are EXTREMELY HOT. If you want to bravely wear makeup when school first starts back. I reccomend using a setting spray so your makeup will stay in tact. Depending on your preference you may want to give these Cetaphil or Maybelline products a try for your face primer.
Eyeshadows/Transition Colors and Eyeshadow Bases
I'm a little unsure of why I didn't show the eyeshadows bases on the left side lol, but NYX are some of my favorite eyeshadow bases to use. If you're working with a shadow that isn't all that pigmented. Try using a white eyeshadow base to make the color pop. Colourpop has really good transition shades that I like to use in my crease. As you can tell I have some light to darker brownish shades. I also like that Maybelline 24 hour Color Tattoo Eyeshadow works double as an eyeshadow or as a base. Im showing the two out of my collection since these can be used to create a neutral eye or smokey eye
Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection
I think these are good to use for everyday makeup looks and I even included the Vital Brights Palettes if you like to incorporate color into eye makeup.
Mascaras and Eyeliners
Very good eye products for about $6.00 or less
I forgot to add the Milani Concealer + Perfect Foundation. If you refer back to my intro picture in the post, you can see it there. You probably can tell that Maybelline is one of my favorite drugstore foundations.
Both of these concealers work well with covering dark circles, but I prefer the FitMe Concealer.
Face Powders and Bronzer
My apologies for including the Victoria's Secret Bronzer. It has been discontinued, but you may be able to find it on Amazon. All these Maybelline face powders provide medium to full coverage and feel lightweight.
I didn't really use blush that much in high school or in college, but these are good to have in your collection, especially the Glamorous Blush Palette since it has a variety of blush shades.
Whether your looking for a lip primer or basic lip care here are a few products
Lip Pencils and Lipsticks
In my opinion, Milani has some of the best dupes for MAC lipsticks and the quality is pretty good as well. I just started buying Colourpop liquid lipsticks a few months ago and for about $6.00 each you get amazing quality especially with their Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsicks.
These are some of the best makeup removing products that I've tried so far.
This isn't a list of my favorite brushes, but I did list a few of the brands I like. These brushes Eco Tools, Real Techniques, BH Cosmetics, and Avon
