Ultimate Drugstore Makeup Products

Moisturizer

Burts bees sensitive daily moisturizing cream

Image result for burt's bees moisturizing cream

This moisturizer is extremely gorgeous for sensitive skin, as it says and it really is because I do have sensitive skin and on the dry spots it’s really moisturizing where I’ve noticed that most of the moisturizers tingle.

Primer

Maybelline Baby skin instant pore eraser

Image result for maybelline primer

It is like a normal primer it basically does the work and it has a gel-like consistency and basically does the job of a primer.

Foundation

Loreal Paris infallible

Image result for l'oreal paris infallible

This is a great foundation I have enjoyed every single time I’ve used it. I also love the Maybelline fit me range however it gives a matte look so I tried this infallible I use it with a beauty oil or mix some moisturizer as I am not a matte look-kind of a person and lastly, it is good for the price.

Concealer

Maybelline instant age rewind

Image result for maybelline instant age rewind concealer

Now I understood the hype about this concealer it has a medium consistency I mean it’s not that runny (like you would expect a liquid concealer to be)  however after setting with a translucent or a setting powder it does stay for a long duration.

Setting powder

NYC Smooth skin loose face powder

Image result for nyc smooth skin loose face powder

I have added this translucent powder because does not have a pigment (yellow tint i.e. banana powder) so it works for all skin types and undertones and sets everything in place and does the job of a setting powder.

Bronzer

NYC Smooth skin bronzing powder

Image result for nyc smooth skin bronzing face powder

This NYC bronzing powder is absolutely great for beginners to work with the pigmentation is great and you can use it for contouring by increasing the concentration of the product and give a crisp look by cleaning it up with a translucent powder. It can also be used as an eyeshadow.

Blush

Wet n Wild color icon blush

Image result for wet n wild color icon blush

There are millions of blushes out there but the only reason behind adding this eyeshadow in the list is its pigmentation it gives a beautiful color to the cheeks having not to double up the product.

 

Highlight 

Colorpop

Image result for colourpop eyeshadow

It’s basically a  single shadow. however, it’s so pigmented that it literally reflects the light even in the pan itself. I highly recommend this shadow as it is multi-purpose.

Contour

Wet n Wild megaglo contouring palette

Image result for wet n wild megaglo contouring palette

This wet n wild palette is really convenient on the basis of color as you don’t really need to buy a separate highlight and contour shade and no product would be wasted.

Eyebrow

NYX microbrow pencil

Image result for nyx micro brow pencil

This pencil is just like any other eyebrow pencil in the market I mean it does the work, is great to work with because it’s really creamy and easily blendable for the people who are new to makeup.

Setting spray

NYX makeup setting spray fixatif maquillage

Image result for nyx setting spray

I love this setting spray as it works brilliantly for my skin it gives me that dewy look and I would prefer it more because of the price point.

(If you love matte finish theres an option for you too)

Eyeshadow primer

Milani eyeshadow primer

Image result for milani eyeshadow primer

I am personally not an eyeshadow primer person and I use my concealer as my eyeshadow primer it does the same job for me but if anybody really wants a full makeup set and wants to include eyeshadow primer too I would recommend this.

Eyeshadow palette

Makeup revolution iconic 2 redemption eyeshadow palette

Image result for makeup revolution iconic redemption eyeshadow palette

Can we just take a moment to appreciate this palette I mean it’s so beautiful and I personally don’t like a lot of colorful eyeshadows I prefer brownish and earthy nude tones this has the right amount of shimmer in it which brings a pop to the nudes its great for beginners its pretty from the price point of view and even the color pay off is great.

Eyeliner

e.l.f. studio cream eyeliner

Image result for elf studio cream eyeliner

I have included gel-based eyeliner because I am personally not a liquid liner girl and I would prefer gel liner any day over liquid liner because it stays for long. however, its a bit tough to work with but a great investment if you are used to it.

Lip liner

I am not a lip liner/lipstick or any lip product person I just love putting on some  chapsticks and that’s it however if I would have to wear something on my lips for a day I would definitely wear these from the price point of view:

Wet n wild gel lip liner

Rimmel Exaggerate Lip liner

5 Life changing Skin care Hacks

#Hack1-

Image result for tea bags

Tea bags: I know that’s strange but instead of buying toner or products to depuff your eyes you can use tea bags.You need a couple of tea bags pour some hot water, let the water cool down and store it in a container there you have it a home-made toner. You can also use tea bags as eye masks to depuff your eyes.

#Hack2

Image result for facial\ wipes

Facial wipes: I know you’ve heard of this hack quiet at a lot. This is keeping some facial wipes near your bed because I know we’ve all been there where we are so tired and we don’t really wanna take the makeup off so these wipes near your bed would at least help you take your makeup off and not look like a raccoon when you get up in the morning.

#Hack3

Image result for SHEET MASKS brands

Sheet masks: Sheets masks can be really tempting and usually sheet masks have a lot of essence in it so when you use a sheet masks there is a lot of essence which has been wasted in the packet so all you gotta do is take the remaining essence from the packet and use it on your body.

#Hack4

Image result for sunscreen

SPF Everyday: This is quiet obviously but a lot of people skip this step using spf is so damn important regardless of what the weather is.

#Hack5

Multi-masking: A lot of us face different problems in different areas of our face like oily in the t zone and dryness on the rest of our face. Here multi-masking comes into the picture it is basically applying different masks onto the different areas of our face.

TOP 3 DRUGSTORE EYEBROW PRODUCTS❤

 

  1. Essence Make me brow (eyebrow gel mascara)

Image result for essence make me eyebrow mascara

 So, for me more than any eyebrow product that is a pomade or pencil, the most important product is a brow gel because the least I would want is my eyebrow hairs ruling all over the place just like my curly hair. So, this is a budget friendly eyebrow gel it pretty much does the work, but this product is available in just one shade I guess I.e., 01 Blondy Brows.

2.Freedom duo eyebrow powder

Image result for freedom duo eyebrow powder

This is by far the best brow powder in my opinion if you are in a budget*. Obviously I am not comparing this kit with high-end brands but it pretty much does the work. It’s easy to blend, with great pigment so if you’re looking for brow powders and you’re a beginner in makeup and want a brow powder this would be the one I’d suggest. It’s not really that cheap but it’s a great investment for your brows.

Its available in three shades-

  • Ebony
  • Dark Brown
  • Taupe

 3. Nicka K Eyebrow pencil

Image result for nicka k eyebrow pencil

 My list would obviously be incomplete without an eyebrow pencil. So, I wouldn’t say this is my favorite eyebrow pencil but it surely does the work it gives you precision has the product on one side and the spooley on the other side.

It comes in 4 shades-

  • Brown
  • Cocoa
  • Dark Brown
  • Charcoal Grey.

The Best DRUGSTORE Makeup Brushes❤

 

Heyyyy, my vyvacious beauties how are you people doing? So today I’ll be listing down some best drugstore makeup brushes according to me so let’s get right into it❤

BLENDING BRUSH

E.l.f. ultimate blending brush

Image result for elf ultimate blending brush

SO, before saying anything about how the brush is?! I would like to mention the bristles of this brush is so soft I mean it feels so soft and deposits the powder product evenly throughout the face. Its dense bristles collects and deposits the product evenly throughout the face and makes it blend into the skin evenly. You can even use this brush as a substitute for blush brush and much more.

MAKEUP SPONGE

Image result for real techniques miracle complexion sponge.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

So basically everybody knows that the beauty blender has just changed the beauty world and most of them just use beauty blender for foundation and much more liquid products(even for baking)

It’s great for applying liquid products it gives you a good amount of coverage depending upon the amount and the type of product you use. But the down side of the product is it absorbs some part of the liquid product but that can be forgiven by the amount of coverage it gives and the look it gives to the skin.

HIGHLIGHTING AND CONTOURING BRUSH

EcoTools Deluxe Fan brush

Image result for ecotools deluxe fan brush sponge

I don’t necessarily feel that you need to splurge on this brush because you can just use a normal powder brush and just flatten it by pressing it by your fingers or you could just use a bobby pin to give it that fan brush shape.

But, if you want to have a full brush set and want a great fan brush this would be my option for a drugstore fan brush.

POWDER BRUSH

Wet n Wild Powder Brush

Image result for wet n wild powder  brush sponge

This is another option for a powder brush.

And the best part is it looks so beautiful in that price and secondly its vegan, cruelty free and gluten free.

BROW BRUSH

Nyx Cosmetics Pro Dual Brow Brush

Image result for nyx pro dual brow brush  brush sponge

Talking about its shape and the structure, its great for you eyebrows completely like it comes with an angled brush and a spooley it deposits the gel/product evenly and it does give you an Instagram brow so what else do you need?

BLUSH BRUSH

Circa Contour & Blush Brush

Image result for circa contour and blush  brush sponge

(I just wanted to keep this as an option because I already have listed powder brushes which would work the same for blushes .)

FOUNDATION BRUSH

Revlon Foundation Brush

Related image

Its flat structure makes it really easy to apply foundation evenly throughout the face. It does not shed or makes your skin feel itchy or something. It’s a great brush to spend on because you can just use this for all liquid products like contouring, foundation and much more.

FIVE-PIECE KIT (EYE MAKEUP)

Sonia kaushuk eye kit

Image result for sonia kashuk eye kit

I had to add this is my list because you just don’t have to spend on different brushes rather you can just have this set and you are done for your eye makeup.

The set consists of a flat shadow brush, a smudging brush, an angled liner brush, blending brush and a crease brush. What else do you need for an eye makeup?

Lastly, its all natural 100%cruelty free goat & pony hair.

So, that’s it for today’s blog I hope you people liked it don’t forget to like and subscribe❤xoxo

Moving on to the actual makeup. The first thing I do is fill in my eyebrows and I don’t know how but just filling in your eyebrows makes you look so put together and just frames your face❤

I use the nyx professional makeup eyebrow cake powder

Image result for nyx professional makeup eyebrow cake powder image -pacakging

Yes at times I do use a liner and I use the Maybelline gel liner and its just so creamy and it stays on perfectly almost till the end of the day, its dark and thick in consistency really good for people who love pigmented (opaque) liners.

Image result for maybelline gel liner

And at times, when I feel a bit fancy I use a bronzer and just swipe it all over my crease area just to get a bit of an contoured eye look. For bronzer i use the NYX matte bronzer.

Finishing the eye makeup with our trusty old friend mascara lately I’ve been using this Maybelline  Hyper curl mascara and believe me it just gives your lashes a dramatic lift and that’s what everybody wants right?



Image result for MAYBELLINE MASCARA

Moving on to the skin I don’t really like to use heavy foundations or mousse for daily basis I either color correct my problematic areas by using some concealer and when I just need an even tone skin I use a BB Cream. I use this lotus BB cream its light and it  gives you a dewy look.

Image result for lotus bb cream

Next just to make sure that everything lasts till the end of the day, I use the Maybelline fit me setting powder.

Image result for maybelline fit me powder

For lips I basically like to use a chap-stick/lip balm nothing crazy as such. So, that’s it this is my final look nothing crazy as such simple and pretty much easy I guess❤
