Hey, Crowned Beauties!
So, I’ve been finding lately that there have been some amazing discoveries and new innovative products in the cosmetic industry. The unfortunate thing is that sometimes we can’t all keep up with those hefty price tags! As a makeup artist, I get to use a lot of “high-end” brands and I’ve found that I can get some of those products for a fraction of the cost and still get the same (and sometimes better) results. If you want to learn more about my favorite makeup products that you can pick up at your local drugstore then keep reading!
Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation
This foundation gives medium to full coverage with a semi-matte finish. I love this foundation even with my dry skin. I find that it doesn’t leave me cakey but it still evens out my skin the way it should!
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
This has been my go-to concealer for the last few months because it is so lightweight and looks great on the skin. I use two shades, one that is my skin tone and one that’s a shade lighter for highlighting.
Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
This powder in the translucent shade is perfect for mattifying your makeup and to stick in your purse to retouch throughout the day. I use this under my eyes and on my t-zone!
Milani Baked Blush
I own almost every shade of this blush because it leaves my cheeks looking so flushed and radiant! I have yet to find a high-end blush I like as much as this one.
Maybelline Master Precise Liner
This liner is very comparable to the Stila Stay All Day liquid liner. It is really easy to control and has good pigmentation
Nyx Micro Brow Pencil
For the longest time, I struggled to find a drugstore brow pencil that didn’t turn my eyebrows an orangey-red shade. This brow pencil is comparable to the Anastasia brow wiz and has a much better shade range than other drugstore pencils
L’Oréal Paris Telescopic Mascara
This mascara separates and lengthens my lashes so well. It has a very thin rubber brush that reaches every lash without making a mess. It’s also very good for lower lashes.
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes lip color
I love these matte lipsticks because they are not overly drying. They have beautiful pigment and great shades. My favorite shades from this line are Nude Nuance and Touch of Spice.
