Drugstore Makeup Look!

Hey guys!  While I normally use a lot of high end items when I do my makeup, it is totally possible to create a lovely look with drugstore items as well!  Here is a look I created using almost ALL drugstore makeup (the only thing I used that wasn't was my Anastasia Brow Wiz).  Not all high end makeup is great, and the same is true for drugstore makeup as well.  But, through trial and error I have found products (both department and drugstore) that I adore.  If you're interested in seeing what I used to achieve this look, then just check it out below.

On this day I was mainly going to be staying at home, but my parents came over for the evening so I wanted to look somewhat put together.  Everything was super light and easy, perfect for a rainy night in.

On my face:
Milk of Magnesia as a primer
Covergirl Ready, Set Gorgeous foundation and powder
Milani Bronzer XL in Fake Tan
Wet n Wild Reserve Your Cabana
Covergirl Cheekers Blush in True Plum
Maybelline Dream Lumi in Radiant

On my eyes:
Physician's Formula Extreme Shimmer Cream Eyeshadow in Champagne
Sonia Kashuk Eye on Neutral 02 palette
Rimmel ScandalEYES Eyeliner in Brown
Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

To achieve the look I started out with the P.F. cream shadow on my lid, I blended out and deepened the crease slightly with a couple of shades in the Sonia Kashuk palette, and I used the first/lightest shade in the palette to highlight my browbone and tear duct.  I used a midtone shade to lightly detail the lower lash line and blend things out, and did a single coat of the Lash Sensational mascara.  I only lined my tightline and waterline, no liner on my lid.  To finish everything off I sprayed a light mist of NYX Matte Finish makeup setting spray.

Here's a closeup pic of some of these products in case you are interested in picking them up!

This is in shade:  Fake Tan
Excellent if you take a fluffy brush and sweep it all over your face to warm your complexion.  You can also dip a smaller more detailed brush into the darker matte shade to contour with.  Tons of product for very little $.

This is actually called a 'bronzer' but clearly it is too light to be a bronzer.  A GORGEOUS highlight powder to sweep on your cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and in the center of the forehead.  It gives a soft, lit-from-within glow without any glitter or shimmers.  An excellent highlight for oily skinned girls like myself!

This eyeshadow palette is available only at Target.  It's a little expensive for a drugstore product, I think I paid around $20 for it.  But, this palette is totally worth it.  All of the shadows are matte and it is full of various midtone crease shades that blend out the crease perfectly.  VERY hard to find in drugstore products.

If you look where my thumb is you will see the shade name of this blush, True Plum.  Probably my favorite blush from the drugstore ever.

This is the lightest shade (Champagne) in the Physician's Formula Extreme Shimmer cream eyeshadow trio in Nude Eyes.  These are gorgeoussss!

And a closeup of the other products I used!

There truly are hidden gems at the drugstore, and some of my favorite products fall into that category.  If you haven't tried these products, then maybe this blog post will give you an idea of some things to try.  Thanks for stopping by!
