Drugstores can be amazing for getting quality beauty products on a budget but can also be so overwhelming. At such cheap price points I often wonder about the quality of the products. Today I’m going to share my tried and true drugstore favorites to create an everyday makeup look.
First is the Covergirl Outlast Stay Flawless 3 in 1 foundation. It is a foundation, concealer and primer all in one. Cover girl is definitely not my usual go to for foundations but this one really lives up to it’s name. I put it on in the morning with a brush and it really does last all day. Highly recommend.
Next, the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot concealer. This concealer is a bit different than most because it features a sponge applicator that product flows out of. I find this so handy on rushed mornings because I don’t have to use a brush, just the applicator and my finger to blend it. The actual formula is fantastic and does a great job of covering dark circles and adding a bit of a highlight.
To set everything, I use the Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder. It keeps me matte without adding any extra coverage or cakey-ness. This is a great behind the scenes product that helps to keep your makeup in place all day! (Mine fell on the ground yesterday and shattered, darn!)
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny is the only bronzer from the drugstore that I’ve tried and loved. I think this is mainly because it is matte and it is not incredibly dark. Its the perfect color for any lighter skinned girl wanting to add a little warmth.
For blush, I chose this ELF studio blush in Pink Passion. Although in the pan it looks shockingly bright, it looks so natural blended out on the cheek. These blushes are so inexpensive at $3 each and they can be found at Target.
Last but not least, this is my current favorite everyday drugstore lip color. Another NYX product, the butter gloss in Apple Strudel is so subtle but adds just the right amount of color. It’s a nice choice for a subdued daytime look, great for work or the weekend. Not only is the color pretty but it also smells so yummy!
