    The Best CHEAP Drug Store Makeup (you’ll wanna buy today)

    Hey y’all, Im pretty excited to be writing this post.  Makeup is one of my most beloved topics and hobbies.  I love to sit in front of my vanity mirror and just “create” as I call it. Haha.  My makeup is different pretty much everyday.  I love to come up with different looks.  I am so happy to be sharing with you all some of my favorite tried and true drug store makeup.  I tried to collect enough to do a full face routine using products that you can afford anyway of the week!  It’s so refreshing to reach for one of these drug store brand products when I don’t have a lot of extra money to spend but still need an update! These are some of my favorite thing that I do use or have used in the past.  I hope you all love them too, lets get started!  P.S.  I’m wearing a lot of it in this pic below!

    Were just gonna go in order here friends!  This is the order I do my makeup and I tried to list them all in order here, kind of!

    1.ELF Poreless Primer.

    I freaking love this stuff!  For one it’s only six dollars and for two, it works better than most high end brands I have tried.  I have repeatedly purchased this for about a year now and I don’t plan on stopping…seriously try it!! Total: $6.00

    2. Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation

    So I have used this foundation for a couple months and DANG, the coverage is awesome.  I just can’t believe that Wet N Wild, the first makeup brand I ever tried when I was younger, the freakin OG of makeup has come up with such a wonderful line.  They have really stepped their game.  I have seen so many beauty influencers reference Wet N Wilds products lately it is so crazy! Definitely a must try. Total $5.99

    3.Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser

    Sweet baby Jesus! Praise the lord for Maybelline right now.  I cannot actually believe my eyes when I put this on.  I create a triangle under my eyes with the sponge tip and then I dab it on places that need extra coverage and blend it in with a beautyblender and woweee!!!! This stuff covers like no one’s business.  Maybe she’s born with it, Maybe it’s Maybelline *flips hair* Total: $7.89


    So, I first heard about Airspun a couple years ago from an influencer named Patrick Starr.  He used it with the poof it comes with and literally plopped it on his face alllll over and it just made me want to do that too.  So I did it!  This product is really popular now.  I’ve been using it for a while but stop in the winter because it has talc and my face is verrrryy dry and it just makes it more dry.  If I do use it in the winter (which is hard not to) I just use a little bit.  It’s an amazing setting powder for the price. $6.99

    5.Wet N Wild Photofocus Powder

    When I use the matching foundation I mentioned above, I love to use this powder all over my face.  It sets it so well and really take s the shine out of the foundation, which I like.  The photofocus collection was tested in all different kinds of lights that people take pictures in and passed them all with no flashback.  This is very important if you don’t want to have a flashback Mary experience.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about search Flashback Mary James Charles.  It’s pretty funny, but also dreaded.  I love this cheap little powder,  I feel like Wet N Wild nailed this line. Total: $5.99

    6.Milani Baked Blush

    I’m gonna take a moment of silence for this little diddly here.  This blush is a godsend.  Honestly, I’ve struggled to find an amazing blush for so long.  They are always so chalky or not pigmented enough.  This Milani blush is literally giving me life right now.  I am shooketh to the coreth because of this blush.  It’s so buttery soft and just glides right onto your cheeks.  I can’t wait to get more color in it!  I currently own Dolce Pink! Total: $6.97

    7.Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer

    Bronzer is one makeup item I refuse to go without.  It adds depth, dimention and color to the face.  This bronzer is so buttery smooth and blends so well.  I love to apply it just above, not in, my cheekbones which raises them up just a little bit.  I also apply it on my forehead and the sides of my nose.  This bronzer is also great because it has no shimmer to it, which is a big no no for me.  I absolutely do not like shimmer in my bronzer haha it’s just wrong.  Total: $9.69

    8.Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder

    This highlighter is so beautiful on!  It really makes you glow.  Apply it to the top of your cheek bones, just above your eyebrows, on your nose, and above your lip to really get your glow on.  Compared to high end brand this highlighter really gets the job done.  It is buildable so you can put on a little, or a lot depending on how you want to wear it that day!! Total: $13.77

    9.Milani Everyday Eyes Powder Eyeshadow

    As you can see I really love this Milani brand.  It is fairly new and truly has some great products that I use daily.  This eyeshadow palette is an amazing cheap alternative.  They have a couple of color combo options, I personally love the brown neutral shades but I would totally wear all of them. I have been mostly wearing red eyeshadows lately and I really love how those look on me too.  This eyeshadow blends so well and you can create such pretty looks with it.  I’ll upload an eyeshadow vid soon so stay tuned.  Total: $8.39

    10.Physicians Formula Eye Booster Lash

    THISSSSS! This eyeliner is hands down one of the best purchases I have ever made.  I’m a liquid eyeliner girl because if I’m wearing eyeliner then its winged no doubt.  I wear a winged eyeliner almost daily and if it’s not winged, I. didn’t put eyeliner on at all.  This eyeliner seriously delivers the sharpest line ever.  You could cut someone with how sharp it is.  I love my eyeliner to be precise and this does the trick.  A great benefit is it has lash boosting serum in it,  I have noticed a small difference with it!  For the most part, I bought this and keep buying this for the fact that I get the best bang for my buck!  Even though I will never switch it out for something more expensive because it is not comparable.  It doesn’t smear, smudge, move, or fade.  Seriously if you consider any of this, make it this eyeliner.  Total: $10.95

    11.COVERGIRL Super Sizer Mascara

    I’ve been using this mascara for a loooonnnnggg time.  I buy it over any brand you can find at Sephora.  I can’t get enough of it for a couple of reasons.  The pay off is amazing,  super black and buildable which I love.  The brush makes it really easy for lashes to fan out and doesn’t get clumpy at all.  The formula is so nice and doesn’t rub off easily or smear onto your eyelids (I hate that). It is by far my favorite mascara on the market.  Total:$7.99

    11.Kokie Eyebrow Pencil

    I rarely, and I mean rarely cheat on my ABH Brow Wiz, but when I do it’s with this.  It’s retractable which is super nice so you don’t ruin the product by putting the lid back on.  The angled applicator is similar to the ABH Brow Definer and allows for you to make angled hair stroke motions to mock real eyebrows.  It’s a great alternative. Total: $9.98

    12.NYX Makeup Setting Spray Matte Finish

    This setting spray is what I use when I want a really matte finish (it also comes in dewy finish)!  It really clings to your makeup and holds it in place.  If you have ever noticed at the end of the day your makeup is separating in areas of you face you need to prime and you need to set.  I think a lot of people forget just how important setting spray can be.  I don’t want my full face of makeup to be off by 2 pm.  I don’t have time for touchups and I don’t want to have to touch up so I just make it simple and use a setting spray. I really love this one as it gets the job done!! Total: $14.60

    13.Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme

    I dont usually go a day without lipstick.  I absolutely love this Milani Liquid Lipstick in the color Adorable.  It is a pinky nude and it is just really pretty.  This lipstick smells soooo good like a vanilla cupcake.  I sometimes just like to open it to smell it.  Im weird, I know.  It is an amazing formula and doesn’t crack, smear, or “chip” off.  I wore it all night in Vegas and it stayed on so well.  It is so easy to apply and dries quickly! Total: $7.99

    I hope you all enjoyed this post!  Don’t forget to share it with your friends so they can get great makeup deals also!  Please comment below and let me know what you think! I truly appreciate the feedback! Xoxo,
