For many years of my life, all I used was drug store makeup because that is simply all I could afford. Once I started esthetics school, I was introduced to a whole new world of high end products, none of which were in my budget unfortunately! I have, of course, build my stockpile up in the years since I graduated and started my business. I love Glo minerals, Urban Decay, and Tarte! There are, however, still those certain drug store products that I can't do without, so I wanted to share some with you!
This. I use Maybelline Instant Age Rewind every single day and could not love it more! I use it for my horrid under eye circles, to touch up my lip borders with a bold lip, and for a highlighter on the go. Fair is the perfect color for my skin tone, and with a little touch of a finishing powder, this stuff will do the trick for a full day out and about. As an added bonus, it's only about $10!
I have tried Milani Baked Blush in a few different colors and have loved them all! Offering great a color selection range, this $8 blush is pigmented and could easily be mistaken for Nars which runs around $35. My color of choice recently has been Rose D'Oro for summer. I'm almost ready to pick my color for fall!
Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder is my go to for bridal clientele! It's a perfect drugstore find. It keeps your makeup in place all day, absorbs the oils that your skin puts off, and only costs about $5. It comes in a few different colors, but I use the color translucent because it offers no pigment. I mostly just like it to set the foundation.
Milani could take up an entire blog with the array of products you can find right in your local drugstore! I absolutely recommend trying Milani Stay Put brow pomade. It comes with a doubled sided brush, and you can buy it in two colors. For myself, I use the lighter of the two. It truly does stay put and paired with their brow pencil to outline the brow, perfectly shaped brows are a breeze!
Have any of you tried these products? If not and you decide to, please let me know what you think! I'm dying to hear if you love them as much as I do.
