Beauty on the Budget-Best DrugStore Makeup


Beauty products can be extremely expensive! And sorting through hundreds of beauty products can be overwhelming. After trying many many products with some hits and some misses, I came up with a solid product list that I use on a daily bases & I swear by some of them!   If you love adding new beauty products into your rotation like me, here are some options that won’t stress your budget.



NYX Professional Makeup Angel Veil™ Oil Free Skin Perfecting Primer

The incredible formula creates a smooth canvas that minimizes shine and makes makeup application flawless.









Maybelline® FIT ME!® Dewy + Smooth Foundation

Ideal for normal to dry skin, this foundation hydrates and smoothes skin texture and leaves a naturally luminous finish. Protects with SPF 18. Dermatologist tested. Allergy tested. Non-comedogenic. Fragrance-free.






Maybelline® Instant Age Rewind® Eraser Dark Circles Concealer + Treatment

The best concealer of all time! I use it as a concealer and highlighter.

This super-concentrated treatment concealer features a micro-corrector applicator to help instantly erase dark circles and fine lines. Infused with goji berry and Haloxyl. Instantly erases the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. Visibly diminishes the appearance of puffiness. Eye area looks radiant and refreshed



NYX Professional Makeup Highlight & Contour Pro Palette

I can guarantee that this is almost the same as most high end brands. You have a variety of colors so if you are like me and constantly changing color (hello, self tan) this is a great option to have so you can use it all through out the year.

I set my face, contour and bronze at the same time using this pallet.






Milani Baked Blush – Luminoso

Since 2009 when Jacklyn Hill started raving about this products, we have been best friends. There is nothing like it! It’s soft, smooth and has the most beautiful color pay off!




Milani Everyday Eyes Eyeshadow Collection -color-must have neutrals

The best eye shadow pallet in the drugstore. This color combo is my favorite. I use the first color as a highlighter on my cheekbones and inner corner highlight. The black color is perfect for under eye or if you just want to do a smoky eye.





                           L’Oreal® Paris Voluminous Original Mascara 

If Makeup by Mario is using this on Kim Kardashian, then it’s good enough for ALL of us! It is the best mascara in the drug  store, and high end in my opinion.







L’Oreal® Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Red Lip color -color 402 Blake’s red

The most gorgeous red! I love red lipsticks that have blue undertone. They make your teeth look whiter.
This specific one is matte, but it’s not drying at all.






Milani Color Statement Lipstick-color naturally chic

The most comfortable nude lipstick. Its exactly the definition of making my lips like butter.
