My Favorite Drugstore Makeup

Hey ya'll! I am so excited to share this highly requested post with ya'll! These are some of my favorite drugstore makeup products that I use every single day! I absolutely love shopping at Target, CVS, Ulta, etc. for great drugstore makeup! (I also use several beauty products from the drugstore that I will share in a different post). You really can find such great products at the drugstore that don't break the bank. I suggest doing your research (read blogs, reviews, watch Youtube videos, etc.) and learn what products are out there! Please let me know if ya'll like posts like this because I love writing them and would love to share more reviews/ suggestions with ya'll!
  As always, please feel free to email me or message me on Instagram / Facebook with any questions about shades/ colors I use, product suggestions, etc.! Hope ya'll have a great week!

Face Products
  • Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer: This concealer is soooo creamy and easy to blend! It's very brightening and helps A LOT to hide your lack of sleep! I love the shade "neutralizer" because it has a yellowy undertone and works well with lots of skin tones! I definitely suggest adding this to your makeup collection.
  •  Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation: Ya'll.. this is the BEST foundation and its only $4.69! It goes on so smooth and has a natural finish. It's great for photos because it doesn't have any flashback. The wand applicator that comes with it makes it so easy to apply on your skin before using your sponge or brush to blend it in. I can't say enough about this foundation- you've got to give it a try! 
  • L'oreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation: This is the best foundation if you have dry skin! I have extremely dry skin and I have gone through about 5 bottles of this since I've started using it. It's extremely moisturizing, but doesn't leave you feeling greasy at all. I love mixing this in with other foundations to give it a glowing, moisturizing finish.
  • NYX Angel Veil Primer: This is my all time favorite drugstore primer! It smooths out your skin and fills in pores, but also keeps the skin hydrated. It doesn't have a greasy feeling at all- which happens a lot of times with primers. I put a thin layer of this all over my face under my foundation. It helps your foundation last longer too!
  • Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer: The best bronzer! I have never found a bronzer that I like as much as this one. It's subtle- so it doesn't give you that "muddy" look. It's very natural! Make sure you get the "Bronzer" and not the "Light Bronzer" because the light doesn't have much color to it.

  •  Maybelline Master Chrome Higlighter: I was having a really hard time finding a drugstore highlighter until I came across this one! It has a great golden tone and shine to it without having chunks of glitter. I love adding a little of this to my cheeks to give my face a little glow.
  • Milani Baked Blush: These are sooo pretty! My favorite high end blushes are the Becca Flowerchild and the Nars Orgasm because they both have a shimmering finish to them, and so does these Milani ones! They have great color options and look very natural. I always say that blush is one thing that you don't need to spend alot of money on because there are so many great drugstore options. 
Eye Products
  • Essence Volume Stylist 18 hr. Lash Extension Mascara: This is another great drugstore option! This gives you the "falsies" look without actually having to wear false eyelashes. It's really great for lenght, so I like to combine this with the L'oreal one to get the perfect mix of length and volume!
Lip Products
  • Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lip Color: I love these for a few reasons. First, they have a really great color selection, which I feel like isn't always the case at the drugstore. Second, they are so comfortable to wear! If you have ever tried a liquid lipstick, then you know that they can sometimes be extremely drying, but these aren't at all! They aren't super long wearing, but that really isn't an issue for me. I really love these!
  • Maybelline Vivid Hot Lacquer Lip Gloss: I love this gloss because it isn't sticky! You don't get those gross stringy lines when you rub your lips together. They also have great color options and are super comfortable to wear! I just throw this in my purse and put it on throughout the day and don't have to worry about it looking messy on my lips. This is one of my favorite drug store glosses!
  • L'oreal Infallible Lip Paints: These are the perfect combo between a liquid lipstick and a gloss. I love the color options- there's so many good nudes and pinks! They're also so comfortable to wear! This line also has mattes and metallics, but I don't like those as much. The paints are definitely my favorite!
Makeup Brushes/ Tools
  • Ecotools Perfecting Blending Duo: For a long time, the only good makeup sponge I could find was the Beauty Blender, which definitely isn't cheap. Recently, sooo many drugstore companies have come out with great alternatives! I love these ecotools ones, and getting two different sizes can be very helpful for applying foundation, concealer, etc.
  • Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge: This is my personal favorite beauty sponge. Since I started using it, I can't do my makeup without it! I love the flat edge to really buff in my foundation and the pointed edge is great to get under your eye. Just run it under the water for like 10 seconds and squeeze it out before applying your makeup- you will get the most flawless finish!
  • Real Techniques Makeup Brushes: I didn't want to separately list each makeup brush I love by them because this post is already super long! But this is such a good drugstore makeup brush option. All of my brushes are either from Real Techniques or Morphe, because you just can't beat the price! If ya'll want, I can do a separate post on my makeup brushes and what I use for each step.
