Drug Store Makeup Favorites




The best makeup products to shop at your local drug store

Makeup can be SO EXPENSIVE, am I right?! Yes, I agree that sometimes expensive products really are worth the money but sometimes it's nice to be able to find a product that's just as good and doesn't break the bank. Today I wanted to share my favorite drug store makeup products with you that are perfect for every day looks. They are all available at your local Walmart, which is my go to makeup spot when I'm in a hurry and need to grab something quick. 

1. This L'oreal powder is AMAZING. I also love their liquid foundation but this powder works wonders for helping your makeup stay in place all day. I use a big foundation brush to apply this powder over top of my liquid foundation to take away the shine and give my face a matte finish. I also sometimes wear it by itself (without liquid foundation under it) if I'm going for a more bare/casual makeup look. It stays in place all day and I typically only have to touch it up once around my nose, if at all! 


2. If you can't tell from my pictures, I love nude lipstick. I honestly hate bright lipstick on me more than anything in the world. Some people can pull it off so perfectly but unfortunately I'm not one of those people. Therefore, these nude tones/colors are all you are going to get from me.. so sorry ๐Ÿ˜‚Revlon lipstick is one of my favorites, even compared to the more expensive brands I have (Mac, Stila, Chanel, etc). Plus, it stays on so well and does not smear! I have linked my two favorite nudes but you can also shop many different colors through the same link if you aren't a nude color person! 



3. This is the BEST eyeliner in my opinion. I've honestly never tried expensive eyeliner because I am horrible at putting it on so I've never wanted to waste my money on a super nice one. However, whether I'm good at eyeliner or not, there's no reason for me to look for another kind! I've never had issues with this one smearing or running and I've been using this exact kind since high school when I first started wearing it. And by wearing it, I mean wearing it the "correct" way and not my "middle school makeup way." ๐Ÿ˜‚ I don't wear eyeliner on the top (unless I get my makeup done) but every time you see me wearing it on the bottom, this is the kind I have on. I wear the darkest color ('black onyx' is the name I believe!). 


4. This is a newer product for me so I am still kind of experimenting with it! However, I love the results I've gotten so far. It does a great job of brightening up my face for every day wear. I got the color 'shimmer' because of that brightening factor and I highly recommend it. The reason I like this for everyday makeup is because on a normal day, I don't take the time to contour and highlight my face like I would if I was going out/to an event. So, this powder helps to give me that highlighted/brightened look without having to take up much time when getting ready! 


5. Eyebrows... my best and worst friend. Y'all I am still trying to get with this "perfect eyebrow" trend because I am not good at doing my own at all. I've gotten my makeup done so many times and every time, I try to take notes on how to do my eyebrows like they do and never can seem to make them look as good when I do them myself. Anyone else have that problem?! It's so funny to me that no one used to think twice about eyebrows (other than the occasional/necessary waxing) and now they are ALL the rage. Don't get me wrong, they can make you look SO much better... I just unfortunately am not good at doing mine! However, I recently got this 'blonde' eyebrow pencil and it's helped me so much! I use the brush on one end first to brush them upwards and then use the pencil to fill them in. It really is a great product and only $7 (especially if you're like me and still learning how to do your eyebrows ๐Ÿ˜‚). 


6. This is my FAVORITE bronzer. I actually saw one of my favorite makeup bloggers use this recently in one of her makeup tutorial videos and went straight to the store and bought it because of the results she had with it. I got the 'champagne' color but there are also several other colors to choose from if you like more a blush or colorless finish rather than bronze. I use it at the top of my forehead (almost in my hairline), on my cheek bones, and on my jaw bones. It's amazing and totally worth the $11-12 for every day wear! Also, a little goes a long way so you don't have to use much to get the bronze color you want. 

7. I have recently become a fan of liquid eyeshadow and this is one of the best kinds I've used! I've posted about my favorite Stila one before but this one is also great and not so dramatic/sparkly. It's great for every day wear because it's very neutral but still gives you a good amount of noticeable color. I sometimes apply more eyeshadow over top of it but usually I just leave it by itself! 


8. This is a great contour palette if you don't want such a dramatic contour like you would sometimes do if you were dressing up more. I use the lighter color under my eyes and down the bridge of my nose and the darker color at the top of my forehead (almost in my hairline), on my cheek bones, and on my jaw bones. It has a matte finish so if you want some shimmer on the darker parts, I sometimes apply a small amount of the Butter Highlighter over top of it. 

9. This is one of my favorite concealers! Not even going to lie, I carry this one around in my purse just in case I have a sudden break out... because let's be honest it happens to the best of us at the worst of times. This concealer does a great job of covering up fast and has a great amount of coverage! I also use it under my eyes in the morning before applying my foundation.

  1. Thanks for taking the time to discuss that, I really feel strongly about it and love learning more on that topic about this Hoistway Cleaning topic. If achievable, as you gain competence, would you mind updating your blog with more information? It is highly helpful for me.

  2. Any habit can be harmful if it becomes an addiction. Smoking addiction can be termed as an inability of a person to quit smoking. It is an irresistible dependence of a person to cigarettes; to so much so extent that leaving cigarettes results in appearance of severe withdrawal effects both physically and emotionally.
